Clare Head purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Clare Head chose Manaton
Gratnor Cottage was inherited by my in-laws. My self, my husband and brother in-law have now taken on the running of Gratnor. It is such a unique place, the first time I came to the cottage was on a hot summers day in 1989, Julian my husband (then friend) invited me to one of his legendary cottage party as I walked down the path through the woods I wondered if I was in the right place, as I rounded the corner I saw the cottage it was like something out of a fairy tail, it feels totally remote and you can feel the stress of modern day living draining away as soon as you arrive. we as a family have spent some very happy times here,I like the fact there's no TV. We walk,talk,read and play games. There is such an abundance of wildlife,Fox's,badgers,deer,barn owls are just some of the regulars.
What makes this Cottage unique
Although Gratnor feels remote its in a great location for exploring Dartmoor, the moorland villages of Ashburton, Bovey Tracey, Chagford and Widecombe-in-moor are all within a 10 minutes drive. If you love the countryside and particularly enjoy the wilderness and wildlife that Dartmoor offers, Gratnors the place to come, its a walkers paradise you just walk out the garden and your on the open moor, and when you come back you have the wood-burning stove to cosy up to. Its such a special place over 70% of our bookings are return visitors.
