Charming, spacious and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family group of 6 really enjoyed our stay at Little Beck, which was just as advertised - spacious, well appointed and cosy! Even in July some days were really chilly and the central heating and woodburning Stove were much appreciated, especially by the members of the family over from the Caribbean.

The enclosed small, rear garden was delightful to sit in and safe for the new puppy, who was unfortunately not old enough to enjoy the adjacent Christow playing field, which, with a skateboard park and tennis courts as well would have been marvelous for older children. 7 year old Chloe and her granny enjoyed it though, finding wild flowers and butterflies in the grassy banks and hedgerows and spotting sheep and cows in the lovely Devon countryside.

Very comfortable. Everything you needed was there.

  • 4 of 5

Six of us were accommodated very easily and very comfortably. Plenty of space and I liked the fact there was a garden for the children to go outside safely. The cottage was well maintained. Beautiful part of the country and the cream tea was a lovely surprise following a difficult journey down.

We all enjoyed our holiday immensely, lots to do and visit in the area. Would recommend to others.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had an brilliant stay at this lovely house!

Owners were very helpful and allowed us to arrive early. The house was immaculate and very nicely decorated, it had everything we needed.

We went away with two small children and couldn't fault the place. Would definitely stay again, two very happy families! :)

Comfort on Dartmoor

  • 5 of 5

This was our first Christmas away from home and Little Beck did not disappoint. The cottage is beautifully decorated to a very high standard, and more importantly is a very comfortable 'home away from home' in which to spend a break, with plenty of room for 5 adults. The kitchen is well equipped and we all particularly liked the American fridge (cold water and ice on demand). We enjoyed making use of the wood-burner, which adds a lovely warmth to the occasionally chilly living room - the weather outside was mostly frightful, but the fire always delightful!! Christow village is lovely, although we weren't able to make use of the village store as it was shut for refurbishment (it did look well stocked though). The Artichoke pub was really friendly and has a good selection of drinks - we especially enjoyed the Plymouth slow gin. We had a really good meal there too; a very high quality of food and lovely waiting staff. All in all our stay was so good that we are already thinking about when we can go back again.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this cottage.

It was beautifully presented and clean. There was no evidence of animals previously staying in the property.

The children (and our kitten!) had a great time. The scones on arrival were well received.

The property was well situated for us to explore the local area. During our stay we visited Dartmoor, Exeter, Brixham & Paignton. All within a short drive.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were great to deal with and we were more than happy to be greeted by a lovely cream tea upon arrival (it didn't last long). The house was very clean and comfortable in a beautiful little village on the moor. We found the house well equipped and the recent renovations really made it a great place to stay. A quick walk up the hill to the local pub was a fun night out with good food and drink. There is a small shop just past the pub on the right where you can pick up a few supplies (if needed) but pay attention to their hours. We will return.

Devon is arguably the most beautiful of the westcountry's counties with its two contrasting coastlines, the north a mecca for surfers and the more tranquil south ideal for families. With its distinctive thatched villages hiding in the folds of rolling green hills, its farming heritage still evident in the herds of dairy cattle and native sheep that graze the open common land, there is nowhere more picturesque or tranquil. The fishing villages that hug the coasts have barely changed over the centuries and look out over beaches of fine sand and characterful harbours. The jewel in the county's crown is Dartmoor National Park.

The village of Christow, just within the eastern boundary of the Dartmoor National Park is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful area. Located in the delightful Teign Valley, the rugged moorland is only a short drive away. There are walks from the doorstep, a number of beaches within easy reach and the historic and well regarded cathedral city of Exeter is only 20 minutes away with its full range of shops and restaurants. The main road links to Cornwall and the South Hams are also easily accessible. Christow itself is a sweet Devon village boasting a shop, post office and traditional pub. Little Beck is situated in the lower part of the village close to the 15th century church and open playing fields where there are 3 modern tennis courts guests can make use of for a small charge.
