    “No lids for the saucepans Too much rain !”



    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Lot Cottage. We have spoken to the owner who has told us the saucepan lids can be found in the cupboard where the saucepans are stored towards the back. Unfortunately Dartmoor weather can be unpredictable in the Autumn months, something we do not have any control over! Owner relations

The property

In the heart of Lydford, just 200 yards from a good food pub and Lydford Castle, a sturdy former barn transformed into a cosy and comfortable, detached cottage.

At the side, small sitting-out area (table/chairs, barbecue), partly covered and positioned to enjoy afternoon sun.

Inside, natural wood (beams, oak floors/doors) blends well with modern furnishings to create a smart rustic feel.In front, little cobbled forecourt (partly off-road parking for one car) with 8 steps up to enclosed sitting-out area and 3 steps up to front door.

Open-plan living/dining/kitchen, cleverly arranged to make the most of the space and the beamed apex ceiling, with woodburner, TV/DVD and granite-topped corner kitchen units (washer-drier, fridge, electric oven/induction hob).

Stairs down into double bedroom (5' bed, beams, tiled floor) with smart en suite shower-room (wet-room suite) and door to front forecourt (ideal for loading/unloading).

About the location


Tavistock 6 miles; Okehampton 6 miles.

Nestling among mature woodland on the western slopes of Dartmoor, the historic village of Lydford is a jewel in this area of outstanding scenic beauty. To the north, just half a mile away, the high tors come right down to the village edge, while to the south the River Lyd winds its way through Lydford Forest on its tumbling course northwards. Lydford village has an interesting medieval castle and nearby Lydford Gorge (National Trust) with its peaceful woodland walks and White Lady waterfall is a must. The village also has a Post Office, pub and award-winning restaurant. Whether walking the moors, fishing, watching the amazing wildlife or just visiting the many attractions of this stunningly beautiful area, you'll never be lost for something to do. The moorland market towns of Tavistock and Okehampton are both a short drive away.

Note: This property does not accept children, except babes in arms.
