    “There was no phone signal.”

    The WiFi was patchy as you had to find a spot in the lounge to connect to

    Thank you for your feedback. Since your review, we have updated the WiFi and there is now a good signal throughout the cottage. Due to the proximity of Dartmoor, mobile phone reception depends on your network. The Three network (and SMARTY sim cards) give good reception here and that's what we use. O2 is generally available upstairs. EE and Vodafone can be variable. Property Owner

The fabulous Roadford Reservoir offers a multitude of watersport activities and fishing opportunities. Okehampton has a prominent medieval castle overlooking a wooded river valley, the Museum of Dartmoor Life and Okehampton train station, which has been restored to its 1950s glory: The Dartmoor Line now operates a service between Okehampton and Exeter every hour, 7 days a week. The town also has access to fabulous walks and Simmons Park where you’ll find a children’s adventure playground. This area of Devon has plenty of farm shops and country inns serving good food where visitors can spend time relaxing and unwinding amongst unspoilt countryside.
