    Mr Powell

    “Honestly the best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in.”

    Very clean, tidy, well presented and thought out, and well resourced with everything you could possibly need for a stay on Dartmoor - long or short. Great quality throughout, comfy bed, warm, quality furniture, wonderful grand piano for those who play. The hosts are spot on - welcoming, helpful, there if you need anything but otherwise leave you to your privacy. Extra bonus of 2 lovely dogs and 2 hilarious ducks, if you are lucky enough for them to deign to visit you as they 'do their rounds' ...

Extra bonus of 2 lovely dogs and 2 hilarious ducks, if you are lucky enough for them to deign to visit you as they 'do their rounds' in the garden. Lovely private garden, off road parking, quiet, comfortable and a real gem. Easy in to Tavistock, Oakehampton, Moretonhampstead, if you need anything ( launderette in Tavistock if absolutely necessary) easy out onto the moors and wilderness. Great local farm shop for supplies, not too far from some amazing coastlines and sitting in the middle of the best of all worlds - coast, woods, moors, towns, amazing rivers - its got the lot. Wonderful base and a true home from home. Cannot recommend highly enough.

The property

In the centre of Lydford, a detached cottage converted from the top floor of a barn quietly tucked within the owners acre of garden (small unfenced wildlife pond, friendly ducks and dog), behind their beautiful house.

Surrounded by original sculpture and artwork, this is a wonderful retreat from the hurly burly of the modern world.

A sloping gravelled path leads to your own lawned garden (table/chairs) and 3 steps up to the front door.

Inside, open-plan with oak floors and ceilings to the apex and clever marriage of old and new furniture creating an intimate, cosy atmosphere.

Living/dining/sleek kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with notable artwork and sculptures, woodburner, fully tuned Steinway grand piano and TV/DVD.

Beyond a heavy curtain, a pretty, comfortable double bedroom with beams; shower-room (suite).

An elegant cottage from which to explore the magical wilderness of the highest tors. Lydford: village (two good food pubs, farm shop, church) on Dartmoor’s western edge, famous for its gorge/waterfall (Nat.

Trust, very beautiful walk deep in woods) and ruined medieval castle.

Granite Way cycle trail; trout fishing in the Lyd; riding stables locally.

Sea/beaches, about 25 miles, north or south coasts.

Roadford Lake, 9 miles.

Tavistock, 5.

Brentor’s tor-top church, 3.

About the location

LYDFORD

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 has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £100
