    “A lovely cottage with everything we needed; very warm and cosy, very comfortable beds and great landlord.”

    The cottage has a lovely woodland outlook, with lots of birdlife. Would recommend for sure.

For a homely place to enjoy your morning coffee or a late-night glass of wine, step outside onto the private patio space boasting well-appointed outdoor seating where you can admire the rolling hills or stargaze the night away.

Prepare hearty meals in the well-equipped kitchen to enjoy around the dining table before retiring to the plush sitting area, featuring a Smart TV and woodburning stove to complement your nights in.

Retire to one of three lovely bedrooms, each with plenty of storage, a light interior, and one with a chic en-suite, to unwind before going to bed.

About the location


Chagford 6.9 miles; Okehampton 18.7 miles; Plymouth 21.0 miles.

Postbridge lies in the centre of Dartmoor between Moretonhampstead and Two Bridges, next to the East Dart River. It is an idyllic place to uncover Dartmoor's archaeology and showcases one of the finest clapper bridges in the country, believed to date back to medieval times and would probably have replaced stepping stones to assist packhorses cross the babbling river. Well positioned to enjoy an array of activities, Postbridge boasts fantastic walking and cycling routes in nearby Bellever Forest, as well as several archaeological remains including roundhouses, stone rows and a burial cyst. From here, you can also visit the remains of a 19th- century gunpowder factory known as Powdermills, which produced gunpowder for the local quarries and mines. Popular tourist spots such as Okehampton and Plymouth are also easily accessible from here by car, making this a holiday destination to savour.
