  • Wyn

    “Excellent cottage in stunning countryside and with fantastic hosts.”

    The cottage was clean and extremely comfortable with everything you could need provided for a perfect stay, and with a large field adjacent which was excellent for walking my dog. Lovey walks in the local area.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of Chagford (1.5 miles from the town), a rural town in the Devonshire countryside, is Monks Cottage, a traditional granite dwelling with an abundance of original features.

Enjoying far-reaching, countryside views, well-positioned within the Dartmoor National Park, Monks Cottage offers a charming retreat for two guests and their furry companion, looking to escape to this wonderful region.

Benefit from private, off-road parking, before taking advantage of the 9-acres of pretty gardens and fields, enveloping your abode.

Step indoors to be greeted by the open-plan living space, flooded with natural light and well-equipped to ease your self-catered stay.

Prepare meals in the spacious kitchen, dine as a two with vistas out to the garden and unwind with plenty of plush seating to choose from.

Dine alfresco in your private garden, where you can toast to your getaway before heading off to sleep in the king-size bedroom, featuring original beamed ceilings and a triple-aspect layout.

Complete your morning routine in the bathroom, before grabbing your walking boots to reach nearby Stone Lane Gardens, or head through the national park to explore Castle Drogo, whilst your nearest hub of amenities lie in the heart of Chagford, where you can stock up on the essentials and dine out at a variety of independent eateries.

Relish the chance to hike towards Becky Falls Ancient Woodland Park, or up to Hound Tor, whilst the Grimspound landscape is rich in both history and beauty, nurtured as an English Heritage site.

Round off your break with a tour of Exeter city, with the opportunity to discover the magnificent Exeter Cathedral, tour the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, or traverse through Barley Valley Nature Reserve.

This charming property is centrally located in Devon, on scenic Dartmoor: plan a day trip to the rugged beaches of the north coast or seek out the more gentle sandy shores of south Devon.

Experience the best of both worlds at Monks Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
