    “A comfortable holiday property in a good location on the outskirts of Bovey Tracey and a very short distance from the moors.”

    The open plan living area is fairly spacious and the en-suite bedrooms are a good size too. To the rear of the property is a secluded seating area which catches the sun. The accommodation was well equipped although it would have been handy to have a few more cups, saucers and cutlery. The tap water gets very hot and probably needs adjusting to make it a bit safer.

The property

Set within the grounds of a family run country hotel, on the very edges of Dartmoor National Park is this stylish, single storey cottage Baskerville Retreat.

Enjoying its own enclosed rear garden and private parking area away from the hotel, Baskerville Retreat is perfect for families and couples looking for a countryside escape.

Be welcomed into a welcoming open plan living space; with its wooden floors and sumptuous sofa this is the ideal place to relax after a busy day on the moor and enjoy a favourite film on the TV.

Prepare delicious home-cooked meals in the newly fitted kitchen, before gathering to eat around the oak dining table.

As the evening draws to a close, why not treat yourself to a soothing soak in the bath before settling down in your roomy, king size bedroom?

Serve morning coffee in the garden and soak up the peace, quiet and birdsong as you plan the day ahead.

Venture into the vibrant town of Bovey Tracey for all of your essentials.

Here you'll find an outdoor heated swimming pool available in the warmer months, or you can take a leisurely stroll through the National Trust owned Parke Estate, sample the delights of the Dartmoor Whiskey Distillery, or House of Marbles tearooms.

Further afield, explore the majesty of Dartmoor National Park, perfect for walkers, cyclists, and adventurers.

Becky Falls, Hay Tor are well worth a visit, as are the stunning sandy beaches and many family friendly attractions of the South Coast.

With so much to see and do nearby, Baskerville Retreat is perfect for a family or romantic getaway.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location

BOVEY TRACEY

Newton Abbott 6.5 miles; Teigmouth 10 miles; Exeter 15 miles

Nestled in the valley of the River Bovey is this stunning little town known as "The Gateway to the Moor". Bovey Tracey got its name from the meandering river that flows through it, with 'Tracey' representing the family that were the lords of the manor after the Norman Conquest. It has a great history with heavy involvement in the English Civil War which resulted in the name of the town's pub "The Cromwell Arms" which serves real ale and good food. The history of the town can be discovered in the Heritage Centre, with the Dartmoor National Park Authority also nearby. Bovey Tracey offers a selection of shops and cafés along with the stunning Mill Marsh Park and the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery which offers guided tours. The town comes just outside of the Dartmoor National Park which provides seemingly endless walking and cycling paths along with incredible scenery. The market town of Newton Abbot sits nearby, offering a fantastic day out with charming buildings and a good range of amenities. The beautiful city of Exeter is also within driving distance, and if a day at the seaside is what you're after then take a trip to Teignmouth.
