    “This cottage was WOW from the moment we walked in.”

    Maddy was so welcoming and friendly - exactly the right type of person to show us around (the little extras did not go unnoticed). The extra towels cupboard was wonderful. As the cottage is a fairly new rental everything was brand new and you could tell. We especially loved the range master oven. The bedrooms were so beautiful and the beds amazingly comfy. The soft furnishings were all top notch. ...

    Maddy was so welcoming and friendly - exactly the right type of person to show us around (the little extras did not go unnoticed). The extra towels cupboard was wonderful. As the cottage is a fairly new rental everything was brand new and you could tell. We especially loved the range master oven. The bedrooms were so beautiful and the beds amazingly comfy. The soft furnishings were all top notch. The 4 negatives about the cottage are:- The spiders (albeit tiny ones)! How steep the stairs are (and incredibly shallow). A slip down these on the 2nd day resulted in a broken ankle! The kitchen has nowhere to store tinned food. Parking was a bit of an issue if you want to park directly outside the cottage (1 of our party has a disability so not being able to park outside was problematic) I would highly recommend Rookwood but wish I had known about the above when booking!

The property

Located within the idyllic village of Drewsteignton, Rookwood is a brilliant base for a group of four looking to explore the best of Dartmoor National Park.

Holding traditional countryside style intertwined with a stylish interior, this cottage is ideal for friends or families seeking an escape to Devon.

Begin your relaxing retreat in the sitting room, where a woodburning stove offers comfort in the winter months, surrounded by the stylish charm of the room carefully selected by a local interior designer, here you can unwind into one of the colourful sofas with the television providing hours of entertainment, or choose to sit at the dining table with your morning cup of coffee to start the day off right.

The kitchen/diner also makes a lovely spot to spend your mornings; a bright and airy room where you can concoct a delicious treat for the group with the assistance of the good range of appliances in the room.

As you begin to tire, retreat up the stairs to find two well-presented king-size bedrooms, both with zip/link features and their own unique interior, you'll have no trouble in catching up on your rest.

While one of the bedrooms benefits from its own en-suite shower room, a further bathroom can be found on the ground floor, offering both a freestanding bath and a separate shower cubicle, you can choose how best to prepare for your fun-filled day ahead.

Spend a moment or two taking in your surroundings from the rear courtyard as your canine companion plays at your feet, and head out to explore the local village of Drewsteignton.

Situated within the National Park, you'll find a plethora of walking routes on your doorstep, surrounded by a wide range of outdoor adventures perfect for the thrill seekers of the group, as well as being great for those simply seeking a tranquil retreat.

In close reach of Exeter too with its wide range of amenities and attractions and an impressive history, Rookwood makes a wondrous base from which to explore the many delights of Devon.
