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. These Sticklepath cottages make a fantastic base for exploring all this area has to offer and more.

The cottage is fantastic, great location, owners on site were incredibly friendly and helpful. We will definitely book again at this location. We thought it looked great on the website but the pictures don't do the property justice.

Mr Harper, Andover, March 2014

Good location, perfect for a cosy short stay. Owner very helpful and very willing to please.

Mr Baily, Alresford, December 2013

The venue itself was much larger than expected, and they had made it especially homely for Christmas with a tree. It was quiet and peaceful in beautiful surroundings, exactly what we wanted.

Miss Cant, London, December 2013

A beautiful location with plenty of places to see and things to do.
