Trafalgar Lodge Cottages

These two romantic Sticklepath cottages are situated in the pretty Dartmoor village of Sticklepath. Both very different, yet as comfortable and welcoming as each other, one of these Dartmoor cottages is a characterful, detached barn conversion with high beamed ceilings, wooden floors, rustic-style furnishings and a woodburner, while the other is a bright and airy, self-contained apartment adjoining the owner’s home, set high on a grassy knoll overlooking the village. Both these Sticklepath holiday homes have an open plan living area, an en-suite bedroom, a private patio area and use of the owner’s large garden, and if booked together, guests can enjoy the differing delights that both of these Dartmoor cottages have to offer. Surrounded by stunning grounds awash with whispering pine trees, this is a wonderful place to relax, unwind and enjoy a gentle stroll to admire the magnificent views. Sticklepath is a pretty village with traditional country cottages lining the main street, a couple of pubs, a village shop and the renowned Finch Foundry (NT) which is open to visitors giving demonstrations of the fascinating 19th century water-powered forge in working order. Sticklepath is surrounded by ample opportunities for country pursuits including magnificent Dartmoor walks, cycling on the 30-mile Tarka Trail, pony trekking across the wilds of the moor and fishing on the local lakes. A short drive from this Sticklepath cottage will take you to a variety of visitor attractions including Dingles Steam Village and fairground museum, Castle Drogo (NT) dramatically situated above the River Teign, and the Museum of Dartmoor Life in the market town of Okehampton.

About the location

STICKLEPATH

Okehampton 5 miles.

Situated in the heart of Devon, the small village of Sticklepath lies on the Northern edge of Dartmoor alongside the river Taw. As well as a village shop and pub, Sticklepath boasts one of the interesting exhibits of industrial archaeology in Devon. Finch Foundry (National Trust) was renowned for years as producing the finest sharp edged tradesman tools in the West country. Three massive waterwheels have been restored and visitors can see the dusty noisy working environment just as it was in the 19th century. From Sticklepath there are plentiful Dartmoor walks on your doorstep and the Tarka Trail runs through the village which can be explored on foot or by cycle. There are several nearby reservoirs that can be fished including Fernworthy, which is close to the pretty Dartmoor town of Chagford, and provides excellent bird watching as well as a circular lakeside walk. Sticklepath and its surrounding villages also run several events during the year, some of the more popular ones include: The Sticklepath Summer Ball, The Sticklepath Fireworks Display, and The South Zeal Folk Festival.
