About the property

Two large king sized bedrooms, one twin with three en-suite, all with TV's.

Underbow, once a coach house, has been lovingly restored but is still quirky and full of character. Located down an extremely quiet private lane it has ample private parking for two cars. The house has its own first floor, fenced garden that is not over looked and is south facing with views across to Dartmoor. Moretonhampstead is on the doorstep so you can walk 100 metres to its centre for shops, tourist information, cafés and restaurants. If the sun is out the open air swimming pool is right there. The house has everything you could need, a solid wood kitchen with large range cooker, a wood burning stove, full central heating and every bedroom has its very own en-suite, two of these are shower rooms and one is a bathroom. All the beds have 100% luxury cotton waffle duvets and white fluffy towels. There is wi fi and four flat screen televisions (two with integrated DVD players) in the house and it has been filled with masses of books, games and toys as well as everything you could need for cooking up a storm in the kitchen!

What makes this cottage unique

This quiet property benefits from its own private parking for two cars right outside the front door. It also boasts a south facing first floor garden. Both of these are quite rare in Moreton. The parking saves you the hassle and fee of using the pay and display car parks in peak which can get quiet full.

Lovely, well equipped cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Underbow Cottage is a lovely well laid out Cottage. We found it really well equipped and laid out down to every detail. The log burner in the living room was a lovely treat! The location was great for exploring areas such as Dartmoor and Torquay and the town of Moretonhampsted is a stones throw away with cafes, pubs, butcher and deli, co-op etc. I would definitely recommend this Cottage!

Our stay at Underbow Cottage was just perfect in every way.an ideal Christmas retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Underbow Cottage is beautiful, if anything the photographs do not do it justice. Every room is presented and equipped to the highest standard. The 3 bedrooms each have their own stunning ensuites, which made the stay so comfortable and convenient. There is plenty of space to accommodate 2 couples easily.

The village is lovely and situated In an ideal location, great for exploring Dartmoor and Devon. There are plenty of good places to eat and drink nearby., while the cottage is so well equipped for cosy nights in cooking and relaxing.

I would wholeheartedly recommend the cottage to anyone. It makes a wonderful base, perfect all year round. Truly a gem.

Fabulous cottage in good location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time at Underbow. A really cosy cottage with comfy beds, fabulous furnishings and probably the best equipped kitchen we've ever found in a rental. Great location too being on the edge of Dartmoor with its walking trails, fabulous scenery and pretty villages but also within 30 minutes of the city of Exeter and other seaside towns nearby. Some good pubs locally and a superb deli in Moretonhampstead. Also great food at the Chagford Inn about 15 minutes away. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Perfect Cottage in the Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Just had a great time in this perfect cottage. Very homely, the beds were super comfy and the kitchen was fully equipped and easy to use. The town of Moretonhampstead had lovely pubs and eateries full of friendly and welcoming people. This area is a perfect base to be in good travelling distance to other beautiful destinations in the South hams. We even ventured down to Padstow in Cornwall where we visited Rick Stein's fish and chip shop! (about an hour and a half drive), WELL WORTH a visit! Overall we had a fabulous holiday and little Lenny the chihuahua loved every minute of it too! Would definitely return, The Costello family.

Moretonhampstead is an ancient market town situated on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in Devon. It sits in the shelter of hills on three sides and the beautiful Wray Valley on the fourth. No matter which road you take you cannot fail to be impressed by the breathtaking views. The town is about 15 miles from the cathedral city of Exeter and 40 min from the beaches. The town offers visitors opportunities for hiking, cycling, and pony trekking, fishing and just relaxing. There are a variety of cafes, pubs, local shops, tea shops and a wonderful Deli. There is also a heated outdoor public swimming pool open during the summer. There are many NT properties close by, one of them being Castle Drogo, only 7 miles away and the miniature pony centre for children is only 5 min away. Bovey Castle and Gidleigh Park are very near for a special treat.
