    “Everything that we had read about ...”

    Everything that we had read about the cottage was spot on and more as the owners had left home made scones and clotted cream along with milk and wine for us as a welcome pack. However it was the location and surroundings that were truly were breath taking. Our visit here was memorable for so many good reasons not least that fantastic power shower in the main bedroom and the excellent wifi reception which was helpful when planning our daily adventures around Devon and Cornwall!

About the location

LYDFORD

Tavistock 6 miles; Okehampton 6 miles.

Nestling among mature woodland on the western slopes of Dartmoor, the historic village of Lydford is a jewel in this area of outstanding scenic beauty. To the north, just half a mile away, the high tors come right down to the village edge, while to the south the River Lyd winds its way through Lydford Forest on its tumbling course northwards. Lydford village has an interesting medieval castle and nearby Lydford Gorge (National Trust) with its peaceful woodland walks and White Lady waterfall is a must. The village also has a Post Office, pub and award-winning restaurant. Whether walking the moors, fishing, watching the amazing wildlife or just visiting the many attractions of this stunningly beautiful area, you'll never be lost for something to do. The moorland market towns of Tavistock and Okehampton are both a short drive away.
