Traditional thatched cottage located in the attractive Devonshire village of Ashwater, within a half-an-hour drive of Dartmoor National Park and some of Cornwall’s best-loved beaches.

This cottage enjoys a fantastic location within walking distance of village amenities, including a village shop and welcoming pub. Its proximity to the Cornwall/Devon border means that visitors can make the most of the huge array of attractions offered by both counties. Dartmoor, with its miles of scenic walks, is within a thirty-minute drive to the east, whilst to the west, the Cornish Atlantic coast offers sandy beaches, such as those at Crackington Haven, pretty harbour towns such as Boscastle, and the historic site of Tintagel, home to the legendary King Arthur. A little further afield, within an hour’s drive, there is plenty more to see and do, including the Launceston Steam Railway, the attractive fishing village of Looe, and The Eden Project. Fishing, sailing and walking can be found at the nearby Roadford Lake and Tamar Lakes.

This cottage offers guests a glimpse of life in a traditional cottage, whilst still offering modern creature comforts. The main living space is a cosy lounge with exposed beams, a sunny window seat, and a huge inglenook fireplace, which now houses a warming wood burner-effect electric fire. There are also comfortable sofas and a TV/DVD. The kitchen/diner has the same cosy atmosphere as the lounge, with its beamed ceiling, and farmhouse-style kitchen units. There is a kitchen table which comfortable seats four, as well as an oven, hob, fridge with ice compartment, washing machine, and a microwave. The bathroom is located on the ground-floor, and offers a shower-over-bath and WC. Steep cottage-style stairs lead to the first-floor accommodation where there are three bedrooms. The first of these is a double room with an en-suite shower and WC. A twin room has been prettily styled with wooden floorboards and a feature fireplace, and finally there is a lovely single room with views over the village green. Guests should be aware that due to the style and age of the cottage, there is some reduced head-height in the bedrooms, due to the sloping ceilings.

Outside, there is a delightful, enclosed patio area to the front of the property, with a picnic-style table and benches. There is roadside parking just in front of the property.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Whilst the cottage was very pretty, some of the kitchen pots, pans and crockery were dirty and we had to wash them before eating. The drain smell was horrible and meant we were bugged by insects drying to air it out. The smell was worst in the kitchen which is not what you want when eating!

Comfortable beds, well equipped, good location. Best in spring or autumn.

Lovely picturesque cottage, comfortably furnished and really well equipped - especially in the kitchen. The four of us were very comfortable. The village is very small - one pub which we did not go to but which has good reviews. For anything else you need to drive - no shops in walking distance. However, area is pretty with the nearest beach about Read morea 25 minute drive away at Bude. Hide

Nice clean, cool in hot weather. Was everything we needed. The communication from the owner was excellent. Local Pub not that good.

Reviewed by Jeanette 16th June 2018

Would willingly paid an additional 10 on the holidays to have a welcome pack there on our arrival, also better up to date info of cottage and amenities. De-humidifier would have been good as some times seemed damp.

A delightful cottage full of charm and character - right down to all the crockery and amenities within the cottage. Very tastefully decorated throughout. The main double bed was so comfortable - we slept like logs ! The Village is peaceful and when you meet the neighbors they are friendly and helpful. If you are over 5ft 10" beware of the beams - wRead moree had a few bumps to the crown mainly coming in and out of the inner doorways - but hey, its a cottage, its what you'd expect- you learn to "duck"!
