  • “A pretty cottage in peaceful surroundings.”

    We had a five year old with us and we loved paddling in the River Tew/racing twig boats etc (supervised of course as there are some deeper sections). There is also a paddock where we could run and play football. There are woods to walk in where we spotted a deer. The bird feeders attract a variety of birds including a Greater Spotted Woodpecker who was fun to watch as he attacked the peanuts! Hot water in the cottage is the most immediate we've known.

    We had a five year old with us and we loved paddling in the River Tew/racing twig boats etc (supervised of course as there are some deeper sections). There is also a paddock where we could run and play football. There are woods to walk in where we spotted a deer. The bird feeders attract a variety of birds including a Greater Spotted Woodpecker who was fun to watch as he attacked the peanuts! Hot water in the cottage is the most immediate we've known. One had simply to switch it on for about a minute in the morning and radiators were hot for 15 minutes or so - useful for drying towels. The weather was clement and hot most days so the radiators were not needed otherwise. Richard is a thoughtful and welcoming host - we couldn't have wished for better, thank you. We have relatives in Tavistock and we made several forays onto Dartmoor. Ate out once at The White Hart in Bridestow (Barry, Hannah and Michael et al). Lovely meals - generous portions at reasonable prices. We chose to remain at Honey House most of the time as it has plenty to entertain a youngster. All good :)

The property

In Combebow, a private, detached little house (originally used for storing and bottling honey) in 54 acres of meadows and bluebell woods through which you are welcome to walk, with the River Lew tumbling past (private fishing).

Also in the grounds are the owners' house and a 12th century mill registered with English Heritage - all the original machinery is still there.

To its front, an enclosed garden, well-tended and much loved, with terrace (table/chairs, barbecue), wisteria arbour and willow 'igloo', serene wooded views and abundant bird life.

Inside, it is neat, modern and well done with terracotta flooring in open-plan living/dining/kitchen with MP3 player, TV/DVD and step up to kitchen area (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker); attractive downstairs bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Open tread stairs up to landing with step up to two bedrooms - a double and a twin, both with Velux windows and sloping ceilings.

An oasis of tranquillity. Combebow: hamlet in a wooded valley just north-west of Dartmoor.

Lydford and the open moor, 5 miles.

Okehampton (small town, golf, tennis, indoor swimming pool, cinema), 8 miles.

About the location

COMBEBOW

Lifton is a small village in the upper Tamar Valley, close to Launceston and the passing A30 road into Cornwall. This pretty community, once sitting astride the old A30 London to Penzance trunk road, is blessed with a village shop and post office, a superb pub and 3 top quality restaurants.

Note: Sorry, no short breaks
