  • “The cottage is picture postcard perfect, more than adequately equipped and set in beautiful gardens in a beautiful part of Devon.”

    There are walks from the doorstep, Dartmoor with the coast a short drive away and numerous attractions. We were torn between exploring the area and wanting to stay at the cottage which offers comfort and is the perfect place to completely relax. The owners clearly take great pride in the cottage and, as well as arriving to a complimentary bottle of prosecco and chocolates from them we received a phone call checking we had arrived okay and had everything we needed.

    There are walks from the doorstep, Dartmoor with the coast a short drive away and numerous attractions. We were torn between exploring the area and wanting to stay at the cottage which offers comfort and is the perfect place to completely relax. The owners clearly take great pride in the cottage and, as well as arriving to a complimentary bottle of prosecco and chocolates from them we received a phone call checking we had arrived okay and had everything we needed. Anyone who stays there will fall in love with this idyllic cottage and gardens. It is superb.

The property

Picture perfect Appletree Cottage is a semi-detached, thatched cottage set within the Dartmoor National Park, nestled beneath Haytor in the very pretty and peaceful hamlet of Higher Brimley.

From the rose filled cottage garden with its thatched summerhouse and apple trees, are outstanding far-reaching views towards Bovey Tracey and the Teign Valley.

Inside, the cottage is filled with character and period features, including thick cob walls, original leaded windows, beamed ceilings and stone fireplaces housing two woodburning stoves.

Perfect for a romantic getaway or a break with friends.

Views over the garden from the window seats in the lounge are just lovely, and, in the very well equipped kitchen there is a large farmhouse table for enjoying meals together.

Also on the ground floor is a cosy snug, and the bathroom and on the first floor are two comfortable double bedrooms, one of which has a king-size bed.

About the location

BOVEY TRACEY

Newton Abbott 6.5 miles; Teigmouth 10 miles; Exeter 15 miles

Nestled in the valley of the River Bovey is this stunning little town known as "The Gateway to the Moor". Bovey Tracey got its name from the meandering river that flows through it, with 'Tracey' representing the family that were the lords of the manor after the Norman Conquest. It has a great history with heavy involvement in the English Civil War which resulted in the name of the town's pub "The Cromwell Arms" which serves real ale and good food. The history of the town can be discovered in the Heritage Centre, with the Dartmoor National Park Authority also nearby. Bovey Tracey offers a selection of shops and cafés along with the stunning Mill Marsh Park and the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery which offers guided tours. The town comes just outside of the Dartmoor National Park which provides seemingly endless walking and cycling paths along with incredible scenery. The market town of Newton Abbot sits nearby, offering a fantastic day out with charming buildings and a good range of amenities. The beautiful city of Exeter is also within driving distance, and if a day at the seaside is what you're after then take a trip to Teignmouth.
