    Welcoming owner, who lives adjacent to The Milk Parlour. Gardens are an absolute joy, a bonus and a pleasure to enjoy with excellent space for dogs to roam safely. Ideal base and comfortable safe haven to explore Nth Dartmoor and local tourist attractions and beauty spots. Would definitely book here again. Have used Helpful Holidays numerous times over the past 25 - 30 years and appreciate that current times are difficult and different. However, e mail messages and text messages pinging on my mobile at 1.00am in the morning ( numerous times! ) from the middle of our week onwards reminding us how we should leave the property before we depart at 0900hrs on our last morning we found at best distasteful, distracting and annoying, especially given the stupid times they were consistently sent. Would recommend turning mobile on silent at night from middle of anyone's holidays onwards and assume this is a reflection on changes since being owned by Sykes Cottages? Might make us consider using again as never experienced this approach in all the years of previously using Helpful Holidays and never had any issues with the condition we have left properties in on departure previously.

The property

In Sampford Courtenay, a detached cottage once serving as a milking parlour to the main farmhouse, with acres of lovingly landscaped garden surrounding it, all for you to wander and enjoy with care (ponds, babbling brook, wildlife), particularly if you are a gardener.

No farming now, but farmland all around and a pleasant lane walk to the excellent village pub (¼ mile).Spacious, lofty and light open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, electric oven/hob, fridge, use of freezer) with TV/DVD, long peaceful views of the open gardens and big glazed doors to patio (table/chairs).Ground-floor double bedroom (6' bed) and lovely walk-in shower-room (suite).

From living room, stairs up to gallery (books, games, seating), through to twin bedroom (curtained from living room, 3' beds, hook for clothes-hanging).

A quiet, restful and unhurried place. Sampford Courtenay: one of the prettiest villages in the middle of Devon with lots of thatched cottages, masses of flowers, fine church and good food pub.

Coarse fishing, 1½ miles.

Dartmoor and Okehampton (small town, golf, tennis, indoor swimming pool, cinema), 6 miles.

Exeter, about 20, the sea (Bude, splendid beaches), 28.

About the location

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.

Note: £10 payable for a second dog
