    “A country idyll, My wife and I enjoyed the full experience of country living even though it was just a week, the cottage is ideally placed for travel across Dartmoor as well as positioned to be able to enjoy the morning corus, we never once turned the radio on at breakfast.”

    I have already recommended the hayloft to my family and will continue tell others. The owner should be justly proud of the standard that is maintained for the Hayloft.

The property

In Lower Cator, beside a very quiet lane, with the occasional passing tractor, a relaxing 'upside down' cottage, one of two converted from a big barn.

Outside, large, mown-grass enclosed garden and patio (table/chairs).

Large and lovely open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, larder fridge, electric Aga) with scissor-beam ceiling, granite worktops, woodburner, TV/DVD, iPod dock and glazed doors (the original hayloft opening) to sunny patio.

Downstairs, good-sized lobby (washing machine, table-top freezer), space for coats/boots and three bedrooms - a double with en suite shower-room, a room with two singles (3 steps, 5'9" beam, limited clothes-hanging space), and a single.

Bathroom (suite).

Spring water.

One small dog permitted from 1 September to 1 May.

A truly beautiful location in the heart of the southern moor. Lower Cator: hamlet in a hill-farmed valley in the middle of Dartmoor, so brilliantly placed for moor exploring and cycling.

Widecombe-in-the-Moor, the River Dart (lovely moorland walk via tors) and Dartmeet, 2 miles.

Ashburton (nearest town), about 7 miles, the sea at Torbay, 19.
