    “This short break was organised in haste, therefore we had concern about the quality and standard of accommodation available.”

    Thankfully this anxiety proved needless. Thank you.

The property

Yelverton 2.5 miles.

Set in the village of Buckland Monachorum, a few miles from Yelverton where you will find all your local amenities, is this charming detached cottage, Tregona.

This heart-warming retreat rests near the edge of the Tamar Valley AONB, steeped with breath-taking country sites.

Entering the property, be welcomed to an open-plan living space, boasting stunning apex beams, laminate flooring and a range of contemporary furnishings.

Sink into the Sofas and unwind with the TV and DVD player so you can look forward to breaking open the popcorn and watching all your favourite classic films after a long day.

There is an oak dining table with seating for up to two people, a wonderful social space for enjoying a romantic meal and sharing a bottle of wine.

Discover a lovely glossy white fitted kitchen, housing all the necessary appliances for whipping up some delicious meals, with some added extras such as the dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Retire to the king-size bedroom once you start to feel tired, where you can continue with some of your favourite shows on the TV, or simply get your head down for the evening.

The bathroom comes fitted with the choice of a bath or a shower cubicle, so you can prepare for your day in style.

Dine alfresco in the rear garden area during the summer months, or take a warm cup of tea out here and watch the sunrise whilst reading a good book.

If you can tear yourself away from this superb base, venture towards the nearby ancient market town of Tavistock, home of the cream tea.

Discover a wide range of eateries for sampling some traditional local delicacies, whilst also boasting a wonderful Pannier Market which has been running without fail for over 900 years.

Enjoy a riverside walk alongside the River Tavy, passing by the old Abbey walls; take a seat at one of the picnic tables and enjoy a spot of lunch during the summer months.

Tavistock Museum is a Grade I listed property, which offers fascinating displays and is run entirely by volunteers.

Surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the Tamar Valley and Dartmoor National Park, there is no shortage of walking and cycling routes for a romantic walk.

Tregona is perfect for a romantic getaway for two to the heart of Devon.
