The property

Settled in the heart of the quaint Devon village of Bere Alston, Devon, is this Victorian, terrace cottage, Harmony House.

Within a moments walk from a pub and choice of shops, Harmony House provides a charming base for up to six guests and their dogs looking to escape to this region of Devon.

Internally, the cottage is surprisingly spacious with a touch of nostalgic charm; spend your down time in the lounge, furnished with three sofas so you can all gather to watch a movie on the Smart TV.

Carry the conversation into the kitchen, where the designated chef can get to work a delicious meal, plus there’s a washing machine to help with the laundry.

Enjoy mealtimes in the dining room before heading out to explore the sheltered lawned garden, with tropical planting, bamboo, olive trees, palms and a furniture set from which you can relax upon and take in the scene.

Make your way to the first floor, featuring a super-king-size bedroom, double and a twin room, each neutrally presented.

Less than a 100 yards away is a convenience store, perfect for grabbing the essentials, whilst there is a choice of pubs, takeaways and restaurants in the village.

Those outdoor enthusiasts can join a myriad of walks and trails in the area, including several along the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail, Denham Woods and Denham Bridge, where you can appreciate riverside views.

Six miles away is Tavistock, where you can dine at some of the excellent restaurants, tee off at the Golf Club or pick up local produce from the weekly market.

Take off further afield to the attractions of Plymouth or see the animals at Dartmoor Zoo, before returning to Harmony House and recharging for the next adventure.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


  • Tavistock 6 miles
  • Plymouth 12 miles

Bere Alston is a small Devon village in a beautiful location between the rivers Tavy and Tamar, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village was once a thriving port shipping tin from Dartmoor. Just upstream from Bere Alston on the river Tamar is Morwellam Quay, a tiny harbour where half the world’s copper travelled through in the 1860s, and which is now a popular visitor attraction telling the story of copper mining through history. Trains run between Bere Alston and Plymouth, on the picturesque Tamar Valley line, following the river for much of the route. Bere Alston has a village shop and pub and there are plenty of stunning countryside walks. Two National Trust properties in the area are Cotehele, a Tudor manor house and glorious gardens stretching down to the river Tamar and Buckland Abbey, an estate on the river Tavy with craft workshops and family attractions.
