“We had a wonderful week at Little Torside.”
Caroline and Alex are perfect hosts - so friendly and welcoming. We were greeted with the lightest Victoria sponge cake baked by Caroline. We also found a perfectly chilled bottle of white wine in the fridge and eggs from their chickens. The cottage is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Mary Tavy has easy access to the moors and when we were not out on the moors we were relaxing in the wonderful garden. Highly recommended.- Ms Smith, June 2018

Above a little lane near the church in the Devon village of Mary Tavy is this pretty semi-detached Dartmoor cottage.
Smartly transformed from a former miner’s cottage attached to the owners’ home, it is now a peaceful retreat for walkers and couples.
The open plan living area has a small wood burning stove, making it a lovely place to enjoy meals and curl up at the end of the day.
When you are ready for a peaceful night’s sleep, head up the steep stairs to the pretty double bedroom which looks over countryside and has an adjoining bathroom for leisurely soaks.
The gardens to the front of the cottages is your own space, with a lawn and terrace with table and chairs for gazing at the views of the woodland valley.
Walk the western slopes of Dartmoor from here and make sure you take in the amazing church perched on Brentor, with its fabulous views.
Head down too to Tavy Cleave, one of Dartmoor’s most stunning sights.
Mary Tavy will provide you with a shop, pub and café, or go a little further to the historic market town of Tavistock which is full of interest.
With Plymouth city just 18 miles away and Devon and Cornish beaches just 25 miles, Little Torside is the perfect bolthole.
