Make a self catering West Devon cottage or Dartmoor accommodation your home away from home

West Devon is dominated by the beautiful Dartmoor National Park, which covers some 950 square miles of beautiful granite moors, where wildlife abounds and the tors provide an enchanting scene. The Dartmoor National Park is one of the UK's favourite destinations, attracting huge numbers of nature lovers, historians and walkers each year to explore the wild and windswept moors.

Things to do in West Devon and Dartmoor

There is no end of possibilities for entertainment from self catering Dartmoor accommodation. The whole of the Dartmoor National Park is carved with walking, cycling and riding routes, which deliver you to some of Dartmoor’s most famous archaeological sites and attractions, as well as some of the more secluded, timeless Dartmoor cottages which are found deep within the Dartmoor National Park. Anyone with a mind for mythology and legend will be delighted by a Dartmoor holiday cottage, as the whole area is simply steeped in folklore. The Drewerstone, Branscombe Loaf and Cheese and Fitz’ Well are among the most impressive folklore sites, but stories of ghost legions and tales from deep in the mines mean that there is no shortage of interest from Dartmoor holiday lets.

Dartmoor cottages are a fisherman’s favourite too. West Devon is inundated with spots for fishing, whether you prefer river, reservoir or sea fishing, fly or coarse. Trout and salmon are the most common fish caught from Dartmoor accommodation, and permits are available from South West Lakes Trust.

There are also more than 10 exemplary golf courses in the area. Whatever standard of golfer you are, West Devon is an excellent region to take holiday accommodation. The beautiful mooreland scenery makes perfect golf courses, and the views are quite exceptional from the majority of fairways in the area.

If your feet are tired from all the walking on Dartmoor or the Dartmoor hiking, there is another way to see the region. The rivers that have carved the granite tors of Dartmoor are great fun on which to canoe. Another great way to discover more of the region from a Dartmoor cottage is to go letterboxing. Letterboxing is a traditional sport on Dartmoor, which is a type of orienteering, with small letterboxes stashed among the crags and holes or under boulders.

All rooms are a great size with lovely ensuites. We enjoyed feeding the sheep too!! Lovely location for all types of walks, we even walked to the beach. Particularly loved the hot tub. We would definitely stay here again!
