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.
Due to the current situation the home cinema system in the games room will be available through a rota basis organised with the owner on arrival. The outside areas, games barn and laundry facilities will be available where social distancing guidelines can be adhered to.
