A stunning property in a beautiful location

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Cowshed, which started with a lovely warm welcome from Wendy. This truly is a home from home, in a quiet country location. The property was spotlessly clean and well furnished, with everything you could need for a self catering break. We would love to visit again in the warmer weather so as to enjoy the garden and balcony. Thank you Wendy for letting us stay at your lovely property!

Relaxing break in a lovely location

5 of 5
Lovely cottage in a great location with all facilities you could want on the door step. Much enjoyed the White Hart and the convenience of a Co-op just over the road. Cottage itself is very well appointed and welcoming with lovely comfy beds that ensured a good nights sleep. Practical kitchen and cosy living/dining room with a wood burner that was most welcome at this time of year. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a comfortable Dartmoor stay with the convenience of small town facilities and hope to return
