It is not often you find such luxurious, dog-friendly accommodation. It is the perfect place to get away from it all. The property is beautifully presented and Adam provided a welcome hamper which was a nice touch. We also loved all the recommended walking routes which Adam provided and used them to explore the immediate area and Dartmouth. The whole place was very comfortable and relaxing. We went in Autumn when the colours in the surrounding area were spectacular..

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      This was the perfect place to get away from the pace and stress of London for the new year break. My girlfriend and I drove down from London on New Year's Eve and although the roads were dark and we did mistake another cottage for this one, once we had arrived we knew we had booked the right accommodation for our long weekend. The cottage was the perfect size for the two of us and could comfortably fit a small family. The bed was huge and very comfortable and warmed up nicely on those cold winter nights. The bathroom is reached via the bedroom and we had no problems at all. The kitchen also comes fully fitted, with glassware, cookware and utensils. In the living room, there is a TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs and a small choice of puzzles and board games, which are perfect for couples and families as well as some books. One thing I would advise is to bring slippers as the living room and kitchen floors are stone so do get cold in the winter. The location of the cottage was extremely practical, with the main road from Tavistock to Okehampton close by. The cottage sits on its own is totally peaceful. Animals do come and go as mentioned in the listing. It is also a great location to drive or walk further into the park. However, a lot of the walks mentioned on the internet do fall further south and east of the cottage. This should not be much of a problem if one has a car. We spent a day and a half walking the moors and as inexperienced walkers, we were lucky to have a wonderful day of sunshine and clear skies to tackle one of the easier walks from Princetown. We also took a day trip to Cornwall, with Land's End a two hour drive away, on another gloriously sunny day and this is also a perfect option for those who wish to see a different type of beauty on their trip. The hosts, Helen and Robin, were friendly but not intrusive. The welcome pack of biscuits were much appreciated. Finally, my girlfriend and I must thank them once again for helping us to jump start our car after a particularly cold night. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of a break in this part of the country to seriously consider this listing. It is a cosy retreat in acres of space. Again, the perfect getaway for two city dwellers to escape from it all.
