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.

Head out onto Dartmoor with its miles of scenic walks, or perhaps drive down to the sea at Dawlish and enjoy a good old-fashioned day at the beach. There is so much to see and do locally for guests staying at this two-bedroom property which sits alongside two others in the village of Hennock, just 13 miles from Exeter. Perfect for couples or small families, you can explore the local area then come home to snuggle by the wood burner or fire up the BBQ (on request from the owners).

A traditional Devonshire cream tea awaits guests on arrival at this homely property - a welcome treat for those who have had a long drive. Sit in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner to enjoy your scones, or open the patio doors and eat them on your patio seating area to make the most of the sunshine. In addition to this space, there are also shared gardens for guests to enjoy, as well as a shared games room with a dart board and table tennis, perfect if you’re feeling competitive! There is even a paddock perfect for letting your four-legged friends stretch their legs.

Dartmoor is not only a haven for wildlife but is also steeped in folklore and tales of fairies, witchcraft, and ghosts. Nearby, Ness Cove lies 12 miles to the south of the cottage was once the stomping ground of pirates; today, visitors still approach the secluded beach via the atmospheric smugglers’ tunnels. The market of Bovey Tracey has a good range of shops, as well as places to eat and is 3 miles away. Exeter, 13 miles north, has a wider range of shops and eateries, a magnificent cathedral, and several parks.

Sarah, Ken and the dogs were extremely welcoming. The property was lovely, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The games barn is fab! The small touches made us instantly feel at home, beautiful fresh flowers, a delicious cream tea and treats for our dog! The property is in a valley surrounded by woodland and beautiful views. Just down the laRead morene is the local pub (dog friendly) serving great homemade food - we ate there most days! The locals and landlord were very friendly also. Hide

Sarah and Kenneth have done everything to make you feel welcome. The cottage is nicely furnished - comfy beds - and well equipped. The gardens are lovely, the games room amazing. Table tennis, pool, darts, books, puzzles, table games, CD, DVDs - even guitars to have a session. So no need for kids to be bored.

Lovely, clean cottage with peaceful surroundings and great dog walks. Great games room to keep you occupied if you find some spare time.

The cottage was very well equipped & comfortable. The owners seemed to have thought of everything, even providing plenty of wood for the log-burner. The property sits in a valley & very secluded, good walking in the area & excellent for doggie guests.

The cottage is in a great location(despite very narrow lanes) with amazing views. Bird feeders outside attracted lots of different birds. Nice welcome with delicious scones and fresh roses a nice touch. Local pub with great food.

Reviewed by Ash 15th April 2019

The cottage was smaller than I thought but as there was only 3 of us (plus a dog) it wasnt too bad. I think if my wife had accompanied me, it would have felt quite cramped. Its a good base to explore the region but beware that the roads around the cottage are very narrow. The newly built games barn is excellent with plenty of choice be it pool, tabRead morele football or just listening to some music. Plus the surrounding countryside is very tranquil Hide

Lovely relaxing environment. Excellent games room facility and delicious homemade scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam waiting for us on arrival.

Reviewed by Mary 29th September 2018

In a quiet spot on the edge of Dartmoor, great for walking (public footpath at bottom of driveway) and star gazing. Fabulous views from the top of the drive. Lovely cream tea, milk, breakfast items and dog treats in cottage on arrival. Very pleasant and helpful owners. Good for couples and small families, best for smaller dogs but lots of exercise Read morespace for larger ones. Hide
