Early Mist Cottage, which has three storeys and is well-equipped, makes a great retreat for a family and their dog looking to experience the wild beauty of Dartmoor National Park.

After a long day of exploration, relax in the living room: watch your favourite shows on the TV and keep warm beside the woodburning stove.

Step through to the kitchen, where the electric oven, induction hob, microwave and fridge/freezer come in handy for home-cooking.
