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 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.
