The property

... the perfect escape: a private drive off a lane on the outskirts of Belstone leads to a clematis-covered, detached, thatched, medieval, Grade II listed single-storey cottage 100 yards from the open moor. Small, flower-filled front garden (table/chairs) and, behind, a larger, sheltered, enclosed, mainly lawned, private garden (picnic bench). The friendly owners' neighbouring house (through gates, unfenced pond) was once home to author Doris Lessing. The cottage, originally a Devon longhouse, has been marvellously restored with great flair. Heating by biomass boiler using sustainably sourced fuel.

Small porch into flagstoned hall (washing machine, tumble drier). Two steps up to special living/dining room with huge oak-beamed ceiling, big fireplace (woodburner), original uneven flagstoned floor (rug), TV/DVD, window seats: a room to dream in. Step up to compact fitted kitchen (microwave, fridge, electric cooker); small shower-room (suite). Two bedrooms – a double (5' four-poster bed), and a small room with 3' bunks. A warm, cosy cottage.

The place

Belstone: small moorland village (good food pub, church, tea room, riding/pony-trekking), a brilliant base for scenic strolls or long walks around Dartmoor's highest hills and wildest valleys. Okehampton (small town, golf, tennis, leisure centre, bicycle hire, cinema), 3½ miles; Chagford, 8; sea/sand/surf at Bude, about 30. Fishing locally. Filling station/shop (24 hours), 1 mile.

A great service from Helpful Holidays and a fabulous property and lovely owners that kept out of the way but were extremely recommending pubs with food and also provided extra dog towels!
