About the property

Yelverton 3 miles.

Tucked away in the quiet village of Milton Combe rests this delightful whitewashed holiday home, Rose Cottage.

Boasting a traditional and homely interior and set within the picturesque landscape of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Rose Cottage offers an idyllic base for two couples looking to explore the delights of the Devonshire countryside.

Stepping into the attractive dwelling you're welcomed into the country-style kitchen/diner, fit with all the amenities necessary to rustle up some tasty treats to enjoy perched at the intimate breakfast table, or head through to the adjoining living/dining room to gather around the dining table with your loved ones, planning your next adventure as you indulge.

The sociable space boasts eye-catching rustic character, decorated with wooden beams, exposed stonework and a warming woodburning stove, inviting you to nestle in on the sumptuous sofa to enjoy a movie night.

Head outside and cross the road to the separate garden, perched on the hillside and offering a tranquil setting to enjoy a refreshing glass of wine under the canopy of the stars.

As the day draws to a close, head back inside and prepare for bed with a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles in the family bathroom, conveniently located on the ground-floor, before heading upstairs to rest your head in one of the two spacious king-size bedrooms, both beautifully-appointed with a light and airy décor, one of which benefits from it's own en-suite shower.

Take a break from doing the cooking and head into the heart of Milton Combe to indulge in a delicious meal at the quintessentially English pub, The Who'd Have Thought It Inn, serving fresh local produce and cask ales sourced from Devon and Cornwall.

Venture further afield to the nearby village of Yelverton, home to a family-run pub housing three unique bars along with a well-stocked convenience store, perfect for picking up any forgotten essentials.

History buffs will enjoy a visit to the beautifully-maintained National Trust house of Buckland Abbey, dating back 700 years.

The thriving market town of Tavistock is within easy reach, where you can enjoy breath-taking views across the rooftops from the Grade II listed Tavistock Viaduct, test your swing at the 18-hole Tavistock Golf Club, and if you time it right, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the stalls of the farmers market.

Outdoor adventurers are spoilt for choice with the scenic landscapes of Dartmoor National Park and the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep, ready to be explored.

With all of this and more, enjoy a countryside retreat with a stay at Rose Cottage.
