I have been fortunate to be brought up in a small fishing village in the west of Cornwall. For as long as I have known my parents have had the cottage in Devon as a retreat from the bustling summer tourism. This has always been a treasured family holiday home where we could all recharge our batteries together.

Melanie Stephens purchased this cottage in 1960

My parents fell upon this property when touring Devon in their caravan. On first sight they fell in love with this picturesque thatched cottage and we have treasured it as part of the family ever since.

Who could fail to adore this charming cottage nestled in the heart of Dartmoor? It offers peace and tranquillity from everyday stresses yet never faraway there's plenty of little villages and towns to explore. Further afield there's many more opportunities to visit tourist attractions such as; Paignton Zoo, Torquay Amusements, Newton Abbott Horse racing, golf courses and much more.

Cosy Devon Cottage in superb location

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 16-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
Beautiful cottage with so many thoughtful touches. The owners were very considerate and made sure we had arrived safely.
Manaton is in the heart of Dartmoor with excellent pubs to visit for lunch and dinner. We didn't find any that wouldn't let the dog inside and the food was excellent. Walking from the door, fantastic woodland walk to Lustleigh, really challenging through steep woodland and across the river, well worth the effort. Walk up Haytor, amazing!
Cottage very clean and comfortable. In wet weather the drying utility room was a blessing.
A bit tight returning from walks with wet people and dogs, however we managed taking it in turns with plenty of towels and it wouldn't put us off staying again.
Owner's Response: It might be a good idea to dry dogs in the front porch before allowing them in. The seating arrangement in the living room is flexible and can be rearranged to suit the individual.

A perfect weekend retreat

A perfect weekend retreat & base for walking but so well kitted out for having a nice social night in on a cold evening with the log fire. We will be back! Thank you.

A return visit to Manaton, after a 4 year break has proven to be a huge success. This has been made possible by the discovery of this delightful cottage. We have revisited many of our favourite places, with the added bonus of glorious weather. A great holiday!!

Becky Falls a natural waterfall is located in the village of Manaton. The village itself is situated in the Dartmoor Natural Park and there are plenty of walks from the front door through the local countryside and rugged moors. It's a nature lover's haven with plenty of fine watering holes nearby for those more interested in sampling good country meals and ales.
