    • “We just want to say how much we enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for our needs (two retired parents and two adult sons) and the location was ideal for picking up/dropping off No.2 son from Exeter Uni. The house is very well appointed and equipped and we would certainly recommend both the house and its location to anyone looking for a quiet and restful, or indeed an active, holiday on north Dartmoor. We also want to thank the owners for their help/advice and tolerance as we struggled at first to manage the heating system. The house was soon lovely and warm & we really enjoyed lighting the wood burner each evening when we got in from our day’s activities – made us feel properly “autumnal”! Highly recommended.”

    Mr Corden, Wolverhampton, October 2018

    • “Fabulous cottage. Roomy and well equipped in a lovely location. 30 min walk up exceptionally pretty and quiet lanes onto Dartmoor. Great food at the Northmore Arms - next door. The perfect cottage for a relaxing break.”

    Mr Crownshaw, Tadley, June 2018

    • “Fantastic cottage in a very quiet location within stumbling distance of the Northmore Arms for a refreshing drink and good meal at the end of a busy day. Very well equipped and very clean holiday home that provided plenty of space and everything 3 adult couples needed. A short drive along country lanes and then main roads will take you to the north or south Devon coasts or some good walks from the cottage.”

    Mr Facer, Hawes, May 2018

    • “The cottage was absolutely brilliant - we've been staying in holiday cottages on Dartmoor for 20-odd years, and this is the best cottage we've ever stayed in. The only thing that nearly spoiled it was Sykes giving us the wrong code to open the key safe so, whenb we arrived with four tired children at 9pm, we couldn't open the door...fortunately, the owners responded to the phone and gave us the right code.”

    Mr Cockersell, WINCHESTER, May 2018

    • “Moorhaven was a fantastic cottage in a great location. It was very well equipped and comfortable”

    Mr Williams, Epsom, April 2018

The Property

In the tiny edge-of-the-moor hamlet of Wonson, alongside a small, friendly pub and a lane-mile from Throwleigh, three cottages carefully and lovingly renovated from a long barn; we let two comfortable, welcoming cottages. Steep, rough track (unsuitable for low vehicles) leads to the parking area at the front, with views over the little pub garden to fields and moor beyond. Behind, each cottage has its own enclosed, private garden. A great base for exploring beautiful, dramatic moorland just a few minutes walk from the door.
Moorhaven is end-of-row with, behind, private garden with huge granite table/bench and good planting. Inside all hand-built, carefully designed, bright and fresh. Glazed door into spacious kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker); small utility room (loo, washer-drier) with space for drying boots/coats. Four steps down to bright living room with woodburner and smart TV/DVD. Stairs (stairgates) up to three bedrooms - a double (5' bed) and a twin, both with en suite shower-room (suite), and, down 4 steps, a good-sized double (6' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Dogs permitted in kitchen/dining area only.

Throwleigh: little village (pretty church) in lanes below Dartmoor's edge, on the lovely Mariners Way walk. ½ mile to pub, and to open moor; 2 to service station (shop); 5 to Chagford and Okehampton (golf, tennis, indoor pool, leisure centre, cinema). Exeter, 18. Fishing and riding not far.
