Make an Okehampton holiday cottage your home away from home

Its proximity to Dartmoor National Park makes it a hit with nature enthusiasts and its temperate weather makes it a great place to visit year round. Okehampton is a quiet place where city dwellers can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, relax and enjoy their surroundings. In addition to the national park, the town is also close to a number of historical attractions and other places of cultural interest.

Things to do in Okehampton

Okehampton is a dream destination for nature enthusiasts as the region is full of lovely walking and biking trails, which take visitors through a series of rolling green pastures, ancient rock formations and historic sites. The town of Okehampton itself is a quiet, rural destination with everything from 16th century pubs to modern cafes and restaurants.

-Dartmoor National Park: Most holiday rentals in Okehampton are just a few kilometres north of Dartmoor National Park, which is full of amazing sights and activities. Hiking, walking and biking trails are open throughout the year and reveal the surrounding landscape in all its beauty. Scattered throughout the park are the ruins of castles and estates built centuries ago. It is also not uncommon to spot deer, cattle or small mammals in the region.

-Okehampton Castle: Once the largest castle in Devon, Okehampton Castle is now mostly in ruins, but is still a sight to behold. The scenic ruins date back almost a thousand years and sit serenely on a hill overlooking a river bed. The nearby river is an ideal place for a picnic or to begin a walk around the region.

-Finch Foundry: The Finch Foundry is the last working water-powered forge in all of England. Now maintained by the National Trust, it is located in the tiny village of Sticklepath just a short distance from Okehampton holiday homes. The foundry offers a firsthand glimpse into what life was like for 19th century English villagers. In the 19th century, this foundry would have been a key component of the village, where farmers could make the tools they needed for survival.

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.

The triple bedroom for the boys was spacious and comfortable (with some places, the second bedroom can be a bit of squeeze but not here). We appreciated having 2 bathrooms and both were high spec. The hosts are lovely and have thought of everything including bird food for the bird feeder outside our window so we saw many pretty birds in our garden. The boys couldn't believe their luck when they saw all the scooters and bikes to use and the games room was terrific for both parents and kids. The lake was conveniently close-by and lovely. We took a magical walk through the forest following the gushing river all the way to the pub. Have already recommended to friends.
