The property

Resting just inside the Dartmoor National Park in the small village of South Zeal, Lavender Cottage is a delightful mid-terrace cottage sleeping five guests.

Ideal for a family or group of walkers, Lavender Cottage is perfectly placed for roaming the Dartmoor National Park, and is just a stone's throw from the amenities of South Zeal.

Venture inside this home from home to find a charming sitting room to unwind in, boasting a woodburning stove within the traditional inglenook fireplace, along with sofas to relax on and a TV.

Cook up a storm in the kitchen, equipped with all the essential appliances and more, including a washer/dryer and dishwasher, with a dining table with bench seating to come together around for tasty meals.

Head back through to the sitting room beneath the rustic beams overhead, to the door concealing the staircase leading up to the first floor.

Discover three lovely bedrooms to choose from resting beneath the eaves with sloping ceilings, offering a king-size, a single with a truckle bed which can be a twin, and a single, all boasting pretty décor and served by the family bathroom.

Delight in spending time in the enclosed garden where alfresco dining can be enjoyed at the outdoor furniture, and little ones can safely play on the lawn, while the front of the cottage is home to a bench, perfect for sitting with a coffee and watching the world go by in the village.

South Zeal's local shop is just a short stroll away, as are the two pubs here too, while Sticklepath boasts a café, and Belstone is home to The Old School Tearoom.

Make a trip over to Okehampton to enjoy the wider selection of amenities here and visit Okehampton Castle.

The National Trust's Castle Drogo lies nearby and presents a great day out exploring this medieval style property, set within large grounds and gardens.

Spend a heart-warming day at The Miniature Pony Centre near Batworthy where ponies, donkeys and pigs live alongside each other and visitors can explore the nature trails and learn about the animals.

Make the most of having unspoilt countryside on your doorstep with walks on the moors, keeping an eye out for those wild Dartmoor ponies, climbing the tors and finding historic sites like the Nine Stones Circle and Codson Hill Stone Rows.

A half an hour car journey away is the delights and big city amenities of Exeter, and fast roads will whizz you to the huge sandy beaches on the North Cornish coast near Bude, 36 miles away or in less than an hour you can be at the seaside towns of Exmouth or Teignmouth taking in the salty sea air.

Make wonderful memories with your loved ones in the Dartmoor National Park at Lavender Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
