  • "We had a wonderful stay."

    Slept extremely well. The beds were very comfy and showers worked like a dream. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy, rest, and recharge in your home and beautiful, friendly little village.

    Ms AvcilAug 2021

  • "Lovely clean cottage with great decor and a pretty garden (with steep steps) where we could sit and look across the beautiful tranquil village."

    Good pub for food in the village and easy access by car to local amenities and on to Dartmoor.

    Mrs WentJul 2021

  • "A beautiful cottage in a very pretty little village."

    The owner had thought of everything, the cottage was clean and comfortable. Village pub within walking distance, great food and friendly staff. Would absolutely stay here again in the future.

  • "The cottage was cosy & beautiful, very clean and well equipped."

    It smells a bit musty in the front room but it’s a very old cottage, so almost expected. But it wouldn’t put us off staying again.

    Mr GriffinJun 2021

  • "Cottage was perfectly situated for our needs and we had a fantastic week seeing family and visiting local attractions."

    I would recommend a visit to Buckland Abbey which is on the doorstep!

    Mr JonesJun 2021

  • "Bit disappointed with this cottage."

    There was a strong smell of damp downstairs which made us not want to spend too much time there. Upstairs was lovely. Also garden was not very useable as the steps were treacherous in the wet. We also didn’t like having to walk through the neighbour’s garden to access the cottage. We found the neighbour rather unfriendly too which didn’t help. The cottage was immaculate however and presented to a very high standard. It’s in a good location with a charming pub within walking distance.

The property

Yelverton 2.7 miles.

Set in the very pretty village of Milton Combe is 1 Woodside Cottages.

This stylish, welcoming retreat rests between the Tamar Valley AONB and Dartmoor National Park, both offering breathtaking scenery, superb walks and a range of country pursuits.

Enter to find a smart kitchen with slate floors, lovely big range cooker and everything you'll need to cater for your family.

A dining table with seating makes this a wonderfully social space for enjoying time together over a delicious meal.

The cosy sitting room where you can relax on the sofa in front of the roaring woodburning stove is warm and inviting.

At the end of a busy day, retire to one of two peaceful bedrooms, a spacious double room with a super kingsize bed and ensuite shower room, or a twin room which looks over the garden.

A second shower room on the ground floor means that guests needn't share facilities.

Dine alfresco in the terraced garden during the summer months or simply sit with a good book and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the Tamar Valley and Dartmoor National Park, there is no shortage of good walking nearby.

Head to the Walkham Valley where you'll find rugged scenic panoramas and gentle woodlands, or Lopwell Dam for a host of breathtaking views and colours year round.

For keen gardeners, The Garden House is a horticultural experience and there some excellent nurseries to visit.

The National Trust's Buckland Abbey is a little over half a mile away and is well worth a visit as is the nearby ancient market town of Tavistock which offers a wide range of eateries and a wonderful Pannier Market.

Further afield are the golden sandy beaches of the South Hams and the bright lights of Plymouth - Devon's Ocean City.

Whatever you decide, you're assured of a wonderful break here at 1 Woodside Cottages.
