                                                              Stunning characterful holiday home

                                                              A wonderful place for all ages to admire, explore and relax in comfort and style. Idyllic large lawned garden with fun areas for the kids to explore. The house is also surrrounded by extensive woodland and stream. This unique house is large and the rooms are all very spacious, clean and nicely furnished. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and the house felt truly grand yet cosy! It was really great to have access to so many children's books and games plus a wide range of adult's books and games too which all made for a very homely feel. The wandering peacocks added to the special atmosphere. Great for family holidays or get togethers or celebrations - we would definitely like to come back. The owner was also very generous in her provision of welcome gifts and pre arrival information - we felt very at home and very welcome. Thank you!

                                                              Well equipped, cosy cottage. Comfortably housed 4 adults and 1 baby for the Easter week. Attentive host and house keeper. Would love to return in the summer.

                                                              Cosy, very individual house, inside more volume than you would expect from oudside.

                                                              We found the property clean, well maintained and well equipped. It's a cosy home with lots of individual details, furbished and decorated very nice and with personal involvement. Thanks a lot for the welcoming cream tea! Unfortunately we were the first to stay after a new heating was installed and so we became kind of guinea pigs to test the effectivity of the new online control system. That means some days of shiver until we get acces to the heating control on location and were able to manage it ourselves. Stunning views from the kitchen door and from the garden but It should be mentioned in the description that the property is situated next to or almost on a working farm. The landscape of course is amazing and mystical, the villages and small towns around provide you with fancy dining and shopping facilities. And the weather again was far better than expected. We will come back to the Dartmoor, as we did for decades!
