  • “Lovely light cottage with huge bathroom and beautiful large conservatory.”

    . ...

    . We even had Alpacas in the field behind. We had fab weather and visited Lydford Gorge, Noss Mayo circular walk, Endsleigh House Gardens.....stunning.... £8 .....pay at Reception to get a sneak peak at inside and had coffee on the terrace on our return. You must visit The Garden House.....charming valley garden with good lunches and teas. Buckland Abbey gardens too. Boscastle..... walk out of Car Park along river and up onto coast path to Lookout and back down to harbour to miss the crowds and have an ice cream in NT shop....delicious. Minor issues were no dishcloth ,tiny scissors in kitchen and Welcome booklet needs to be more professional and not just hand-written. Please get a Mira shower as they are robust and don’t leak. Some flowers or pot of jam or something to welcome you would be nice. A great holiday........

The property

This semi-detached stone cottage is set in the hamlet of Kelly near Lifton in Devon, close to the Dartmoor National Park.

Retaining a wealth of character throughout with comfortable accommodation, this is a great place for a family holiday or get together with a group of friends who wish to explore this beautiful area.

On entering you will notice the character of the property including original slate floors, beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls.

Entry is through the conservatory with seating, making it a great place to relax, looking out to the large garden and to the views over the countryside.

This leads through to the well-equipped kitchen with a dining table next to a woodburning stove, making a good social space for planning the day’s activities.

The sitting room has plenty of comfy seating in front of a welcoming woodburning stove; lovely on those cooler evenings catching up with friends or family.

Upstairs from a small landing there are two traditional bedrooms with lovely views and a family bathroom.

To the front of the property is an enclosed lawned garden and to the back is a pretty patio garden with plenty of seating and a summerhouse to enjoy the countryside views afar.

The small hamlet of Kelly is a short drive from the village of Lifton, which has a full range of facilities including a village store/Post Office, a church and a good range of pubs to enjoy.

A 20 minute drive takes you to the former market town of Launceston which is on the Devon/Cornwall border.

Launceston has Georgian buildings, ruins of a Norman castle, shops, cafes, restaurants, a museum and a church.

For something different why not take a trip to Dartmoor National Park with plenty of paths, tracks and open moorland for you to explore on foot, bike or horseback as well as being a great place to try out new activities, such as climbing and geocaching?

Within driving distance is the ancient stannary town of Tavistock and the seaside resorts of Bude and Padstow for a good day out.

Whatever you decide to do, 1 Arthur Cottages is a wonderful place for exploring these two great counties at any time of the year.
