This peaceful cottage is the perfect base for enjoying the beauty of South Devon. Set in an elevated position in the grounds of the owners’ smallholding, you can meet the animals and explore Dartmoor.

Escape to a hilltop hideaway in South Devon for tranquil surroundings, spectacular countryside and views that will take your breath away. Elevated above a working smallholding, take in the sights of Dartmoor National park on the horizon as you explore the grounds and meet the resident animals. Adventure wherever your feet will take you, across moorland treks or around stunning riverside villages, rounding off your day snuggled in front of your own cosy wood burner watching films and savouring a relaxing tipple for two.

Peaceful and inviting, this detached single-level property is placed in an ideal setting for a romantic break. The open-plan living space is decorated in neutral soothing tones, with serene lighting, comfortable sofas and a wood-burner. Enthusiastic cooks will adore the well-equipped kitchen, especially with the temptation of fresh produce available on-site, including seasonal vegetables, fresh eggs and preserves. Dine a deux at the table, or head outside to the shared lawn and BBQ area for an al fresco supper. The double bedroom and en-suite shower room are a welcome sight, simply irresistible after a busy day, having left your muddy boots and coats in the separate outbuilding.

Almost on your doorstep, Dartmoor National Park offers a variety of bridleways through wooded valleys, craggy tors and crystal clear streams less than a mile away. Pause at a quaint hamlet in South Brent, 3 miles away, admiring the remains of watermills and a windmill, or enjoy a hearty lunch at the local pub. The River Dart meanders by and picturesque little villages are studded along the riverbank such as Stoke Gabriel (10.5 miles away), as well as the bustling market town of Totnes (6.5 miles away).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A very comfortable, spacious and well-equipped apartment, in a very peaceful, quiet location. There was no noise from the A38, nor any early morning noise from the little farm. Host Steve was truly excellent, he attended to any issues immediately and gave excellent advice for daily outings. Highlights were Pomeroy castle, and the "riviera" towns anRead mored beaches to the south (Dartmouth, Salcombe, Bigbury etc), which are 40 mins away. Our supplies were obtained locally from the Co-op at South Brent. Hide
