The property

… in the tiny edge-of-the-moor hamlet of Wonson, alongside a small, friendly pub (good food) 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.

The cottage was great for us being 3 couples some of the time and each couple wanting an ensuite bathroom. The website and reviews you show are very honest and we anticipated the driveway being difficult which it was but with so many good local walks we didn't always use the car. Great pub and food. They allowed us to park the third car on their car park. Not being dog owners by choice we would have had a no pet cottage but having 3 bathrooms trumped that requirement. Only comment would be the oven wasn't very clean and I think in general the kitchen and kitchen floor could have done with a good clean right into the corners - but it didn't spoil our enjoyment of the cottage and all there is to do in the area.
