Set within Dartmoor National Park and nestled within a beautiful hidden valley, this property offers peace, relaxation and the perfect base to explore the moors and south coast.

Step straight out of this property’s front door and walk through the woods and out onto Dartmoor’s rugged landscape: an outdoor lover's paradise. There are plenty of walks to be had, and even caves to explore, before returning to the homely surroundings of this apartment at the end of the day for al fresco sundowners in the shared seating area, followed by a cosy DVD by the wood burner effect electric fire to end the day.

 

Whether you want to enjoy a walking holiday or are simply looking for somewhere to get away as a couple, Bluebells is a great choice. Situated alongside two other holiday properties, this ground-floor apartment is approached via a set of external steps which lead up to the apartment’s light-filled open-plan living area, next to which there is a king-size bedroom. Outside, there is a shared seating area to be enjoyed, as well as a shared games barn with table tennis and a dart board. For guests travelling with their pet, the paddock is an excellent place to exercise dogs.

 

The Dartmoor village of Hennock where this property is situated stands high on the Teign Valley looking down upon Teign village. The main reason visitors come here is to get to know the beautiful surroundings and take walks on Dartmoor. One such walk leads to the picturesque Canonteign Falls only 2 miles from the property, England’s highest manmade waterfalls which are surrounded by peaceful landscapes, including seven scenic lakes. Fancy a day off from outdoor pursuits? Head 12 miles south to the coastal town of Dawlish for a day at the seaside, or perhaps spend a day in the cathedral city of Exeter which lies 13 miles north of the apartment.

We would highly recommend Bluebell Cottage, we spent a very relaxing week in early June. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome by Sarah and Kenneth and nothing was to much trouble, the cottage was very clean, well equipped and comfortable.
