About the property

Cottage, 1 bedroom, 2 people

Great base from which to explore Dartmoor and West Devon. The Lodge at Bedford Cottage is a new conversion (2013) which has created a single storey cottage in the owners' grounds. Inside it is light, modern and very cosy. The reception area has a solid wood floor, two sofas and a log-effect stove. The kitchen area is well equipped with all appliances. The bedroom has two zip and link 3' beds that can make a large double, or two generous single beds. There is a modern, en-suite shower room. Outside there is a table and chairs and a patio area for you to enjoy the sun. Well-behaved dogs are welcome in The Lodge, provided they are not left alone at any time.

An ideal holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what we hoped for on our extensive tour of England and Scotland. It was very clean, comfortable and offered everything needed for a pleasant stay in Devon. The Lodge at Bedford Cottage offered something I have dreamt of, that is walking distance to a good pub where not only could we enjoy a good pint but a very enjoyable meal in a quintessential English Pub. Carole and Andrew were wonderful hosts not only making us feel welcome but offering essential advice on travel in both Devon and Cornwall with useful tips on places of interest. A week was not enough, We got much pleasure in just sitting in the car up on the moor watching the ponies, cattle and sheep doing what they do best, grazing. An idyllic setting for someone coming from a country such as Australia. Just perfect!
