    “Nice cottage, we loved it, altogether liked it, especially the nice location and the lovely woodburner.”

    Proposals for more helpful aspects and items: another/better/new induction-compatible frying-pan, a better instruction or description for the management and steering of the central heating would be really appreciating. Nice place to be recommended. :-)

Drewsteignton is a chocolate box village resting between Whiddon Down and Exeter in the Dartmoor National Park, Devon. The village sits high above the River Teign as it meanders through a spectacular, steep wooded Teign Gorge and has a cluster of ancient cob and thatched cottages surrounding a square, complete with a ancient church. A choice of attractions include the National Trust's Castle Drogo, a country house with a medieval design, along with a selection of scenic walks to Hunter's Tor or through Stone Lane Gardens. Within easy reach of the village is the market town of Chagford where you can find further attractions and amenities such as an outdoor swimming pool, The Old Forge Cafè & Restaurant, and the Three Hares Gallery showcasing local artwork. Further afield, you'll find the many walks and historic sites of Dartmoor National Park including Becky Falls Ancient Woodland Park, Blackingstone Rock, and Canonteign Falls.

Due to the size of the water tank in comparison to the bath, it is not possible to fill the bath completely with hot water, the hot water will fill the bath to approximately half way, this information can be found in the information folder at the property.
