    • “A fantastic cottage - very well equipped and a lovely home-from-home for the week. It was an extremely peaceful and enjoyable stay! Highly recommend :)”

    Mr Milford, Tunbridge Wells, October 2018

    • “A very nice cottage, the drive is long and a little rough, but well worth it for the views of Dartmoor from the patio, The pool is in a barn across the yard but is warm, and a great swim in late October, Beds are great, lounge large, kitchen has everything you could need,champagne and pint glasses! An hour from Port Isac, an hour from Croyd, an hour from Beer, so very central!! Great star viewing as it is full dark!! at night. Great bird life from Wrens-Buzzards. A great break away from the bustle of modern life.”

    Mr Donovan, Horsham, October 2018

    • “The information about an enclosed terrace garden is a bit misleading. With two dogs, we had thought it would be a bit more than the terrace from the living area for them to use.”

    Mrs Shanley, Worthing, October 2018

    • “Totally relaxing and very peaceful. Cottage was very comfortable and clean. A very informative booklet, great walks with lots of nature including deer. The swimming pool was a great added bonus.”

    Ms West, Stroud, September 2018

    • “Fab peaceful cottage with lovely verandah and relaxing pool.”

    Ms Dadd, EASTBOURNE, August 2018

    • “Absolutely fantastic property , beautiful location , great local walking and loads to do and see in the area”

    Mrs Winter, Aldershot, June 2018

Regional Information

SAMPFORD COURTENAY Okehampton 2.5 miles. Midway between Sampford Courtenay, a sleepy but picturesque Devon village, and Okehampton, a thriving community known as ‘the gateway to the moor’. The whole area is a country lover’s dream. The high tors of northern Dartmoor dominate the scenery and provide a splendid backdrop to Okehampton nestling in a valley where tumbling moorland rivers join before heading to the sea. For miles around, the area is famous for its country pubs that between them provide welcome rest after a day exploring the paths, cycle ways and stunning countryside. On a clear day the view from the top of High Willhays (the highest point south of the Pennines) will take your breath away. Country pursuits and crafts are a way of life and a trip to the Dartmoor Visitor Centre and country museum in Okehampton are musts. Look also at the pretty moorland villages of Chagford, Belstone and Sticklepath to savour a way of life that’s becoming increasingly rare.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Off-season
  • Note: Indoor heated swimming pool is available from 9am to 7pm and at other times by arrangement,
  • Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
