  • “The accommodation was spotlessly clean even though they allow pets.”

    Owner was accommodating and had even baked us a cake on our arrival. We were in an area where there was plenty to see.

Step down into spacious living room with TV/DVD and woodburner.

Three steps down into generous-sized kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric hob/double oven, iPod dock) with sliding doors to patio and views towards the owners’ paddock, where Ted the horse grazes, with countryside/moorland beyond.

Loo.

Stairs up to lovely big double bedroom (5' bed, footboard) and beautiful bathroom (suite, shower over roll-top bath plus hand-shower).

A really generous and comfortable base in a lovely part of Dartmoor and well placed for discovering Devon and Cornwall.
