    “The house is lovely but we were taken aback by the approach road and parking.”

    This was definitely a negative for us. The kitchen could do with a thorough clean as there were cobwebs everywhere. The shower and toilet on the first floor makes an alarming noise when used, presumably this is a Saniflow system. The shower does not drain well either. There was a smell of sewage from the drains. Whilst at the property I received notification from Sykes that the cost of renting this property was reduced for future bookings, which I found rather annoying, having paid full price ...

We enjoyed being in Lustleigh and will probably return in future, but not to Oakhurst.

Oakhurst enjoys easy walking access to the village where you'll find the friendly village shop and pub: head down the lane or choose the wooded footpath which passes through the village orchard featuring the May Day rock.

There are footpaths galore with walks in all directions from the house through woods and meadows, along rivers and paths leading onto the moor.

Travelling further afield, plan a schedule packed with outdoor pursuits and hotspots, such as walks to Becky Falls, bird watching and hiking through East Dartmoor Woods & Heaths National Nature Reserve, exploring Haytor Rocks, or relaxing in Stover Country Park with a picnic.
