-The Hound Tor and Hundatora: Hound Tor is just outside of Bovey Tracey and is a massive granite outcrop that almost looks like dogs assembled on a cliff face peering down at you. It is a stunning example of the force of Mother Nature, as the granite cliff face has been severely weathered. Hundatora is the remains of a completely abandoned medieval village that is believed to have been deserted in the 1300s. It is in close proximity to the Hound Tor, south east of it to be exact. The village was excavated during a painstaking process that took 14 years and was completed in 1975. There are 4 Dartmoor longhouses as well as some smaller barns and houses as well. Many of the dwellings show central drainage channels and there were 3 barns with corn dryers used for grain storage as well.

With 6 adults sharing this accommodation we still found it more than adequate and the owner had thought of everything for our comfort. This included our reception by the Property manager who explained all the local attractions, places to eat etc. and was most welcoming.

                                                                                                We rented this cottage as a 40th birthday present for my wife and for my daughter’s 7th birthday. On the day we arrived Vicki - the owner – had baked us a very tasty cake and also left a bottle of local apple juice which was much appreciated. The location and scenery is just stunning with a lake just a few minutes’ walk. The backdrop to the cottage is beautiful with nothing but pine forest and open fields. Just 5 or so minutes’ walk from the cottage is the start of a wonderful hiking trail with the River Teign running parallel to the footpath. We found a great little picnic spot with the river on one side and the forest on the other - truly magical. The cottage itself is full of character and has everything you need including a playroom at the top which our girls enjoyed using. All in all, we had a fantastic time and it truly was one of the best holidays we as a family have had. 100% recommended. Thank you to Vicki and her husband
