We are so happy we stayed at Mark and Wendy's cottage in Dartmoor Nat'l Park. It is a spacious, comfortable rental in lovely, country surroundings. The Cowshed has a well appointed, fully stocked kitchen with new appliances and a washer/dryer. The living space downstairs is comfortable and roomy with a wood stove for those who like a real fire. The cottage also has room heaters if preferred. The wet room has modern facilities with a lovely shower and heated tile floors in the cooler parts of the day (we really loved that!) Every inch of the rental was spotlessly clean. There are DVD's for entertainment and many lovely books about Dartmoor that were a great help to us in planning our outings. The loft bedroom is a huge, beautiful space with a deck overlooking the back garden (spendid view), great for relaxing at the end of a busy day. The Cowshed is a perfect base for exploring the moor and Devon seaside. The nearby town of Moretonhampstead (nice pubs and a food co-op) is a pleasant, 20-minute walk from the cottage through stunning countryside. The rental is next to our hosts' manor house, but we were given total privacy. That said, Mark and Wendy were very kind and helpful, happy to offer suggestions of places to visit, or answer any questions about the rental. We would highly recommend The Cowshed to anyone wanting a great place to stay in Dartmoor. Our only regret was our stay was too short, and we hope we are able to return to The Cowshed on a future trip.
A great spring board from which to explore the the South Devon beaches or the Dartmoor, Lustleigh itself a hidden gem, with great local walks.
The coach house itself is a lovely cozy retreat, converted to a high spec and well appointed. After a day walking , great to return to either to rustle up a meal and chill, or to take a stroll down to the village pub for a bite.
We haven't been in Devon for years and are already contemplating our next "staycation" - Lustleigh and the Coach house being at the top of our list of places to stay.
