    “Wonderful cottage, location and host”

    This is a real gem of a cottage. The location was perfect - on a farm smallholding (with chickens and ducks for our daughter to feed outside each morning). It's only a mile or so outside Tavistock with all its amenities but feels a world away - it's right at the end of a country lane so no passing traffic (the road is tarmac and in good condition right up to the farm entrance, only the final 100m or so is unsurfaced but still no problem for our car).

    This is a real gem of a cottage. The location was perfect - on a farm smallholding (with chickens and ducks for our daughter to feed outside each morning). It's only a mile or so outside Tavistock with all its amenities but feels a world away - it's right at the end of a country lane so no passing traffic (the road is tarmac and in good condition right up to the farm entrance, only the final 100m or so is unsurfaced but still no problem for our car). The hosts provide annotated maps showing recommended local walks - it's only a minute or two from the farmstead to the open moorland from where you can walk down to the beautiful rivers Tavy and Walkham below. We were also able to ride our bikes from the cottage via a couple of country lanes direct onto the excellent Drake's Trail all the way to Plymouth. The cottage itself also surpassed our expectations. The kitchen, lounge area, bathrooms and bedrooms were all attractive and well equipped. There's a shed at the back where bikes can be stored and there's also a games outhouse and very big trampoline. The hosts were also great. Both before, during and after our stay Jacqui answered all our calls / messages very promptly and helpfully. She was also there to welcome us on arrival (from a suitable social distance), and the cream tea that was there to welcome us was very, very good. All in all, a great, great week away - a real tonic in a time of Covid. Thanks Jacqui!

Highertown Farm Cottages

Tavistock 2.5 miles. A stunning pair of cottages converted from a barn, now standing side by side across a courtyard from a farm in Devon, within their own private enclosed gardens and surrounded by paddocks grazed by ponies, sheep and chickens. Situated on a slope above the West Devon Way, in a tranquil, rural setting a mile and a half from Dartmoor National Park, the cottages offer an escape to the countryside for a family or group of 10 to 12. The cottages have amazing, far-reaching countryside views towards Dartmoor and are just two and a half miles from Tavistock. There is a popular pub just one and a half miles away serving food, and a wide range of independent shops, along with the award-winning Pannier Market, in Tavistock. Moorland, woodland and rivers are within direct walking and cycling distance from the barn, or you could simply relax with a good book and do some birdwatching. For those seeking excitement, there are a host of outdoor adventure activities to explore nearby and the property is located closely to Drake’s Trail, which is part of the National Cycle Trail Route 27. The property joins the trail between Brunel’s Genofen Tunnel and the Gem Bridge, an iconic new centrepiece of the Drake’s Trail. The route covers both short and long distances and is suitable for children and adults of all abilities. War Horse was filmed nearby and there are plenty of tors to discover on Dartmoor, either on foot or horseback. The waterside city of Plymouth is a short drive away, with activities for rainy days including a visit to the National Marine Aquarium, The Pavilion’s swimming pool and ice rink, the historic Barbican and a couple of theatres. Set amongst some of Devon's most natural, unspoilt countryside, a stay in this cosy, rural escape will leave you wanting to return for more.
