Set in the very pretty village of Buckland Monachorum, a few miles from Yelverton is Netherton Cottage.

Inside you'll find a lovely open-plan living space, where you can stretch on the sofas in front of the roaring woodburning stove.The dining table with seating makes a wonderful social space for enjoying a meal or sharing a bottle of wine whilst the well fitted kitchen houses a feature Aga and everything you'll need to whip up a delicious meal.

At the end of a busy day, retire to one of two peaceful bedrooms, a very spacious first floor double with a kingsize bed, day bed and ensuite shower room or a ground floor room with a kingsize bed.

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

Dine alfresco in the 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 Trusts Buckland Abbey is a little over 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 Netherton Cottage.
