  • “We stayed here for the second time, and although small, the cottage is fine to stay in for a week or so, and the location very pretty.”

    BUT we were rather concerned, when we came back one evening, after having dinner at the pub, to realise that somebody must have been in the house. Nothing was missing or mislaid, but the outside light was on, and the stair door was shut which we never ourselves shut. It was a very unpleasant and uncomfortable feeling, and probably means we shall not come back.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We have checked with our housekeeper and our local builder, as they are the only people who have keys to the cottage and neither of them accessed the property. Perhaps maybe one of your party may have closed the stair door before leaving the property and turned the outside light on ready for your return? It’s improbable anyone unauthorised got in and we wish to reassure you. Property Owner

The property

In North Bovey, a pretty, 17th cent., Grade II listed, semi-detached, thatched cottage on the Dartmoor Way.

Step down from the porch and you can follow the lane until it becomes a track and then stepping stones across the River Bovey and beyond.

More walkers and horse riders pass than vehicles.

To one side of the cottage, accessed across neighbour's drive entrance, a long, narrow, secluded wooded garden with paved area (table/chairs) looking across Easdon Down and surrounding hills. Living room with huge inglenook (woodburner), ancient beams, cosy window seat looking down the valley, TV/DVD and kitchen area (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker); to one side of the inglenook, a narrow doorway (5'10" lintel) with 2 steps down into little dining room with glazed door to front of cottage.

Steep half-turn stairs up to two bedrooms - a double (5' bed with footboard), and one with two singles (limited clothes-hanging space).

Smart bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Outhouse with washing machine, tumble drier.

A smashing get-away-from-it-all cottage in an enchanting village.

Ring of Bells Inn in walking distance.

North Bovey: postcard-pretty village (medieval church) with tree-shaded green in the beautiful wooded valley of the mini River Bovey, two lane-miles from the spectacular open moor around Manaton or Moretonhampstead.

Bovey Castle (hotel, good restaurant, golf), about 2 miles.
