Tranquil cottage amidst farmland. Beautifully quiet. If you want to get away from it all this is the place to stay, though Okehampton is only a few miles away. It is also extremely close to the edge of Dartmoor for walkers. Tavistock only 30 minutes drive away. And a welcome cream tea was left by the hosts upon arrival. Great value for money!!

A lovely, comfortable cottage in a very peaceful setting but within easy reach of the local town and Dartmoor.

Lovely cottage that is in a good location. Very well equipped and comfortable. Lovely views and generally very peaceful apart from a couple of nights when a dog was barking very late at night and into the early hours of the morning.

The farmhouse was everything that we could want on a family holiday. Our young boys had plenty of space to run around, were fascinated by the sheep and cattle, and loved playing cricket with Finn, the loveable farm dog. The accommodation was great - like a home from home - easy to relax in, which was exactly what was needed. Location wise as well iRead moret fitted the bill. Easy access to the moors and great walks, and the beaches from north Devon to South Devon to Cornwall were all an easy drive away. Hide
