Why Nikki Webber chose Dartmoor

Tilley's Cottage has lots of character and is warm and cosy even if the weather is not kind but you are in the perfect location to tumble out of the door and buy whatever you fancy, walk around the historical trail, swim in the summer just over the road or head out to a selection of places to eat really good food. If you do decide to go further afield Moretonhampstead is known as the gateway to the Moor so you can just leave the front door, turn left and don't stop...Dartmoor is right there!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage is absolutely fantastic and really homely. We didn't want to leave!! The little extras really make a difference and it is really clear that you think of your tenants and what would make the stay enjoyable. We would deffinately be recommending this cottage to our friends.

Centrally located

  • 4 of 5

A very well equipped cottage. Good quality linen and towels and the kitchen was thoughtfully stocked with tin foil etc. The cream tea left for us on arrival was a nice touch.

The butchers/ deli next door has some lovely food, pies takeaway etc. The large supermarket opposite has everything you need. The downside of this is that It can be a little noisy as people are constantly stopping outside to go to the shops and early morning deliveries are made.

If you are tall and aren't used to low beams be prepared for a few sore heads!

Cosy Cottage

  • 3 of 5

The property is a cosy cottage in the town of Mortonhampstead with easy access to Dartmoor and the surrounding area. The cottage is on the road and therefore there is noise from the road and deliveries to local shops but as long as you're an early riser this isn't much of a problem. There is no parking possible on the road, other than for 30 minutes, but a car park is nearby, costs around £3 per day. The property sleeps 6 but is probably more suited to 4 adults, having 6 adults felt a little squashed and tricky to all fit on the sofa at the same time. The wood-burner was a nice feature and the open-plan design enabled us to all be together even when the cooking was being done.

Owner's Response: Sorry to see three stars for the fist time in 9 years of guests. Firstly Tilley's is small for six adults which is why with EVERY six guests I let them know in advance, as was the case with this guest, in writing, so they are aware. However with six adults dividing up the rental it represents very good value for money. The parking is free for one car as I supply a parking permit but additional cars can always find road parking for free at the rear of the cottage about 2 mins walk away (which is where I park!) The advatages of being in the heart of Moreton for both adults and children, with the outdoor pool, have been so often commented on and how generally the town is quiet and people sleep well but I have installed secondary glazing on the front 1st floor bedroom just to assist with this. However it is in the heart of the little town by the shops, restaurants and amenities and this is as described on the site and seen in the images. It is the main reason people book and have always commented in the visitors book how usuful the location was for both Dartmoor and not having to drive in the evening.

Quaint and cozy and close proximity to all Dartmoor locations.

  • 4 of 5

The common areas were spacious for our party of six adults. We could have used a few more kitchen towels and bath towels but we were very satisfied with our accommodations. We easily settled into the cozy and inviting decor. Recommend to those who desire location in heart of Dartmoor.

Lovely cottage in a small pretty village

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in August at the cottage. My husband, two teenagers and myself were very happy with the cottage. It was clean and tidy with everything you could need for a stay including cleaning products, dishwasher tabs, towels, books to read and games to play. The cottage is on the main road but we did not find it too noisy at night as there is very little traffic. Everything is convenient, with a co-op and butchers a few paces away and two really good pubs with fabulous food just a few yards up the road. The people in the village were really friendly and helpful too. Overall our stay was fabulous and we would think about visiting such a beautiful area and great accommodation again in the future. Also Nikki was really helpful in her communication before our stay so we knew exactly what to expect.

Delightful cottage in a wonderful village

  • 5 of 5

I loved Tilly's cottage and you will too. It is right in the heart of a wonderful village called Mortenhampstead. Everything you require for a Devonshire experience is waiting for you. The cottage was cosy, clean and welcoming, everything you read about on the website is true even the lovely scones with jam and cream Nikki so kindly left for us. Wifi was easy, the appliances were all modern and worked well. Out the back door is a little seating area and the people passing by wave and smile and even stop for a chat. Everything you need to have a delightful stay is on your doorstep, good grocery stores are steps away, pubs, tea rooms and friendly locals with sweet dogs to pet. We had our own transport but local transport is readily available a short walk up the street which will take you to Exeter and Dartmoor. Check out the solar heated outdoor pool as well. I can't say enough good things about the place, enjoy your stay!

Tilley’s Cottage is the perfect base for family holidays or friends to get together. Moretonhampstead is an ancient market town situated on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon. It sits in the shelter of hills on three sides and the beautiful Wray Valley on the fourth. Dartmoor is on the door step and 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 & the miniature pony centre for children is only 5 min away. Bovey Castle and Guidleigh Park are very near for a special treat.
