    “Generally good facilities as shown, trip advisor reviews don't match those in the visitor book - generally good reviews shown overall.”

    Some dated decoration but homely and warm. The downstairs cream carpet showed the usage but was ok. Well stocked kitchen area and the cottage had a new wood burner which was great, I think we may have been the first to use this as it was burning off something the first couple of uses, but was no bother after that. A cosy cottage and great for our visit, we were out most of the day exploring. The outbuilding with the washing machine and tumble drier was handy as we were quite muddy after ...

Well stocked kitchen area and the cottage had a new wood burner which was great, I think we may have been the first to use this as it was burning off something the first couple of uses, but was no bother after that. A cosy cottage and great for our visit, we were out most of the day exploring. The outbuilding with the washing machine and tumble drier was handy as we were quite muddy after cycling! Didn't use the garden area (not warm enough to sit out). The flowers and cake on arrival were lovely, thank you. We had a great week there and it is a super base for exploring the moors. Lambs nearby as we went in April and even the occasional owl hoot for added wildlife! The ring of bells pub 20m up the road is great as is the Bridford inn (in Bridford!), super food and a range of ales, if that is your thing. There are many other good pubs around as well!

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.
