    “Very homely.”

    Lovely beds and bedding. Good shower and plenty of hot water.

    Lovely beds and bedding. Good shower and plenty of hot water. Kitchen well equipped. Lounge has plenty of comfy furniture. Pool was well used and a added plus to this accommodation. Views to die for. Very remote so need transport. Good walks on the moor. Good dry weather was a bonus for us. All round excellent relaxing autumn break .

About the location


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.
