  • Mr Reed

    “Excellent accommodation, very comfortable and spacious.”

    The only problem that needs addressing is a lack of maintenance on the house. Door knobs falling off etc However I would very happily book again

The property

Complete with views looking over the town of Tavistock and Dartmoor, Old Berkeley, an idyllic 1920s detached house, situated on the outskirts of Dartmoor, this is the perfect family getaway.

Drive up the private lane, through the gate to the graveled parking area.

At the front of the house discover the beautiful, enclosed garden, complimented with raised terrace (table/chairs) to enjoy an evening meal, lawn to play on and a small fenced fish pond.

With a warm and welcoming feel, you will enjoy relaxing in front of the open fire in the front room while watch a family movie (TV/DVD, WIFI), or cuddle or up with a book in the bay window looking over the garden, and door to the sun-room. Eat in the dining room soaking up the views from the bay windows.

Enjoy cooking in the stylish kitchen complete with dishwasher, microwave, larder fridge, gas hob/electric oven.

Walk through to the breakfast room with space for four to sit round the table and chairs.

A washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge-freezer is easily accessible through a door to the utility room with a small shower room.

Stairs from the hall lead directly to the three bedrooms- two doubles, both with views over Tavistock to the moors beyond, and a pretty single room.

The bathroom consists of a shower above the bath and a wash basin with a separate loo. This is a family-friendly comfortable house in an excellent location for town and moorland exploration, Tavistock: fine ancient town on the River Tavy on the edge of Dartmoor, evolving around an abbey founded in 974 AD, and Sir Francis Drake’s home town.
