Nothing was too much trouble, a delightful grocery pack, and fresh salad from the garden we could help ourselves to! ( The Rocket was excellent!) As for the house and garden, the pictures tell as story that is 100% accurate, looking over the gardens from the decking was great especially on a sunny morning. The house is effectively brand new throughout with an amazing kitchen & two very smart bathrooms. We took our dog and the walking close to the house as great never mind the rest of Dartmoor. We walked into Chagford each morning (although quite a hill on the walk back which takes about 30mins). Chagford is delightful - All the shops that are often missing from a typical British High Street - Butcher/Deli/Bakery/Dairy plus a few more and plenty of eating places. This is a great place for Family,2 couples or as in our case bringing the parents away! And of course don't forget the dog if you have one. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.

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!

Being well traveled and having high expectations we often find ourselves disappointed by poor furnishings and lack of attention to detail. We could not fault a single item in the home or the surrounding grounds, a perfect trip and one we hope to repeat many times in the future. 5 stars across the board.
