    “A very wet October half term probably wasn’t the best time to be at Hedgelea.”

    Four people’s wet weather gear quickly filled available coat hooks but the house was warm, well equipped, with comfy beds and great views. The owners provided a welcome cake and lots of ideas for things to do, and were super-quick to sort out a heating issue part way through our stay. Cleanliness was exemplary. ...

    Four people’s wet weather gear quickly filled available coat hooks but the house was warm, well equipped, with comfy beds and great views. The owners provided a welcome cake and lots of ideas for things to do, and were super-quick to sort out a heating issue part way through our stay. Cleanliness was exemplary. The ‘but’ comes from the very rural location and the openness of the property. I found access daunting - all routes are on very narrow, rutted, single track Devon lanes which made journeys in and out nerve wracking. I didn’t find the garden was ‘enclosed’ enough for dogs. There is stock fencing on some boundaries and a fence/gate on one side of the house, but the bank to the main road is not secure and one side of the house is completely open. My dog was able to get into the neighbouring field (luckily empty of animals) on arrival day so we had to keep her on a lead for the rest of our stay; responsible but not relaxing.

    - Mrs Inwood, October 2020

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback, we spoke with the owner who says - Having spent seven years renovating Hedgelea and three years preparing the cottage each week for new guests we were so glad to hear you appreciated all our efforts inside the cottage. Regarding the enclosed garden, we will be adding a gate over the winter to make the immediate garden area fully enclosed so that dogs can be let off the lead and owners can relax. As for the Devon lanes and in particular the last half a mile or so as you approach Hedgelea, we agree whole heartedly that this stretch is in poor condition and we will continue to petition Devon Highways to improve the situation. Despite the points raised we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. - Sykes owner relations

The property

This detached single-storey cottage is situated in Bondleigh hamlet two miles from North Tawton.

In a secluded setting with lovely views yet with easy access, it is a brilliant base for forgetting your worries and exploring Devon.

When you step indoors you will be struck by the carefully restored original features such as stripped wood floors combined with modern comfort.

From the neat slate-floored kitchen with its old fashioned pantry, and induction cooker, head through to the dining room where the original range has been preserved as a nostalgic feature.

Whilst you eat, you can admire views across countryside and the Taw Valley to the hills of Dartmoor.

The living room has the open fire you would wish for in this timeless spot, complemented by an up to date music system and TV or entertainment.

Sweet dreams end the day in the three comfortable bedrooms with little to disturb a peaceful night.

An enclosed garden surrounds the cottage, a quiet place to sit with a good book on the terrace or stretch out on the lawn, or wander the wild meadow paths which meander on to little lanes to Woodland Trust-maintained Clapper Cross Woods.

North Tawton is a good practical town with a range of shops and pubs and a scrumptious fish and chip shop, or head into Okehampton, slightly bigger and with cinema and leisure centre.

A walk or cycle ride on the car-free Tarka Trail is a must or take your boards to the surf beaches at Saunton Sands and Bude.

With its central location, Hedgelea is a smashing cottage for a holiday to unwind.

About the location


Winkleigh 3 miles; Okehampton 7.5 miles.

The charming country town of North Tawton quietly rests amidst lush green fields, high hedgerows and winding lanes, just eight miles north of historic Okehampton. Nestling between the high, rugged tors of Dartmoor and the wide sandy beaches and rolling surf of the North Devon coast, this delightful town boasts picturesque thatched cottages and quaint pubs. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and cycling, with many pretty little villages dotted throughout the area, and several excellent coarse fishing lakes and rivers, quality golf courses, and a number of National Trust properties within easy reach. There are few better spots from which to experience the joys of beautiful Devon.
