The property

… 2 miles from Widecombe-in-the-Moor, in the heart of Dartmoor, a semi-detached cottage attached to a Grade II listed farmhouse, believed to date from the mid-16th cent. (locked connecting door). Surrounded by open garden and 23 acres, there are family ponies, friendly dogs and small children. You are welcome to roam the garden and grounds (with care) and make friends with the ponies/dogs; sunny seating has been provided for your enjoyment.

A few shallow granite steps lead up through the garden to the door. Open-plan living/dining room with high beamed ceiling, Velux windows (star-gazing), slightly uneven granite/wood floor, woodburner, TV/DVD and iPod dock; neat galley kitchen (slimline dishwasher, fridge, electric cooker/2-ring hob) with glazed door to garden; 3 steps down to lobby (room for coats/boots) and bathroom (suite plus hand-shower). From living room, stairs up to gallery double bedroom (6’ bed, access to one side only) with sloping beams (hooks for clothes-hanging). Curtained from the living room, another double bedroom for alternative sleeping. Clothes-washing service. Spring water. An oasis of wild beauty and calm.

Good for:Moors and torsRomantic escapesSouth Devon

Hamel Down Hideaway had the most perfect access to the moors. There was a mown path from the garden, through a couple of the owners' fields going straight out onto Hamel Down. From here you are spoiled for choice with fantastic walking in all directions. The cottage had everything needed for a comfortable stay, including an excellent and varied selection of books. I loved relaxing in the rolled-top bath and sitting in the garden watching the swallows flying in and out of the barn. The family were lovely and very friendly, but equally were not at all intrusive. Great pubs nearby. Look forward to staying again.
