    “To begin with: The photo of the property on the 'advert' is not accurate as it actually depicts the neighbouring property - this is due to the angle from which the photo is taken - the neighbours property proceeds Little Gate Cottage.”


    As dog owners who instructed that we would be taking our dog expected the garden to be outside the door of the cottage. In fact it was across a driveway to a neighbouring property. It had the appearance of somewhere which had not been touched by a gardener for many months. The 'garden furniture' was in a disgusting state - so dirty that we would never consider using it. To describe the area as a garden is taking a liberty, it would better be described as a wilderness. The cottage itself needed a good clean. The décor is tired and needs updating. Throughout our stay we could not get any reception on the television. After taking one look at the cooker we decided that we would not use it due to its filthy condition. We will never return to this cottage

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.
