  • “We had a lovelly stay.”

    The cottage was clean, warm and cosy and had all the facilities that we needed. It was peaceful and quiet and we had many walks in the beautiful local countryside without needing to drive in our car. Good pubs and shops close by when we needed them.

It was peaceful and quiet and we had many walks in the beautiful local countryside without needing to drive in our car. Good pubs and shops close by when we needed them. Lovely welcoming touches were flowers on the dresser, delicious home-made cakes, milk in the fridge. The owners checked to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely return and recommend the cottage to our family and friends

The property

In Sampford Spiney, peacefully at the end of a private drive off narrow, winding moorland lanes, a detached single-storey cottage converted from a sturdy granite barn, surrounded by an enclosed courtyard (table/chairs, barbecue) with pond (netted), over which a bridge (handrail) leads to gently sloping hillside garden and arbour with spectacular long views to a panorama of tors.

To one side, the friendly owners' home and a resident neighbouring cottage, all bordered by horse-grazed fields through which you can wander.

Lane walk to the open moor: Crip Tor and Ingra Tor, around ¾ mile.

From parking area, gravelled pathway to 7 big uneven granite steps (alternative level access via gravelled courtyard) up to front door (5'5" lintel); spacious beamed open-plan living/dining/oak fitted kitchen (washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob/electric oven) with armchairs and sofa bed (converts to double bed for alternative sleeping), TV/DVD, iPod dock, table/chairs for 4 and glazed double doors to courtyard.

Double bedroom with en suite bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Spring water.

The best of both worlds here: scenic and secluded, yet close to interesting moorland towns. Sampford Spiney: hamlet (church, cottages, scattered farms) in the River Walkham valley on the scenic western slopes of Dartmoor.

Dousland (pub, PO), 3 miles; Yelverton (shops, pub, golf), 4; Tavistock (interesting shops, markets, pubs, restaurants, wharfside theatre), 6.

Plymouth and south coast, 13 miles.
