  • "We have stayed at Fox Hat several times before."

    It's just off the high street but very quiet, so the location is ideal. Free parking for up to 2 hours is available nearby and the municipal car park is just around the corner (£3 a day). A pleasant and well-presented place to stay.

  • "The most cosy cottage we loved our stay!"

    Comfy bed, every facility you found wish for and the best location. We will be back!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We see you have already booked for a return visit and we look forward to having you back! Property Owner

  • "We had the best few days staying in this delightful cottage right in the middle of Chagford."

    It is warm and cosy, very well equipped and within walking distance of great pubs, cafés and shops. There are wonderful walks from the front door and it's also easy to get out onto the moors nearby. Thank you for the milk and delicious cake, and for leaving a ball, towel and bowl for our dog

  • "We had a brilliant stay at FoxHat Cottage!"

    It was perfect for our little family of four. Very cosy downstairs but with adequate space, while the upstairs was unexpectedly spacious and well laid out. We can't wait to come back to Chagford to stay again. The lemon drizzle cake on arrival was a lovely touch as well!

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We look forward to having you back. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage in the heart of the village."

    Very well equipped kitchen - everything catered for. Milk and cake on arrival was very much appreciated. Super sized comfy beds and great size main bedroom. The only negatives for us was no wardrobe in the smaller room - maybe a suitable cupboard could be put on the spacious landing. The en-suite shower needed the sealant along the bottom of the sliding door replaced as it didn’t look very nice - also some grout in the other bathroom. Only minor things but the grout did look dirty. Other than that a really lovely week with friends.

    Thank you for your feedback. This year we are delighted to have received 100% positive feedback until now. Whilst your negatives comments are only very minor they are noted and we have had a close look at the items mentioned. In the second bedroom we have a chest of drawers and plenty of hanging space in the recess with hooks and hangers. The landing is open and airy and we feel a wardrobe here would not be appropriate. We are extremely proud of our high standard of cleanliness thanks to the lovely Rachel and Maddy who look after our cottage and after close inspection could not find the defects to grout and sealant mentioned.

    Charming cottage and very convenient. Would have liked a colander and a steamer.

  • "As I wrote in the guest book, this was the most well-appointed cottage I have ever stayed in; I couldn't fault anything, from the comfort to the provision of kitchen equipment."

    Also, I found everyone so welcoming & friendly wherever I went in the town, & the choice of eateries, whether cafe or pub, was amazing, as was the food quality. I love the choice of independent shops, & the local information provided was most helpful. Well done to the owner.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We love Chagford and so happy that you did too. Property Owner

  • "A beautifully presented cottage."

    We tried to work the heating but ended up turning radiator’s down as very hot. Golden retriever puppy had his crate in the kitchen by radiator and he loved it! He wasn’t allowed anywhere else in the cottage (our decision) but all pubs etc made us so very welcome. We would love to come back - especially if you do plumb the washing machine in. Great location but hard to find in the dark

    Thank you for your constructive feedback. We have asked the heating engineer to look at the heating controls. Happy to say that the washing machine is now up and running. We look forward to having you back sometime. Thanks again and best wishes. Property Owner

    Our weather was stunning & we will definitely be booking again. As described a truly quaint chocolate box cottage.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Great to have returning guests. We look forward to having you to stay again. Property Owner

  • "This was our third visit to Chagford, but not for about 18 years."

    We are pleased to say that things have changed very little and Dartmoor is as magical as ever. The cottage had all we needed and was comfortable and well equipped. We would very much like to revisit next year. We have heard that a washing machine is to be installed which would be most helpful - especially for those staying for more than one week. And finally, many thanks to Madeleine the caretaker who helped us with the television.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to confirm that a washing machine is currently being installed and look forward to you returning as guests in the future. Property Owner

    Fox Hat cottage was a delight. So very comfortable and super clean. Warm and cosy with plenty of hot water at the ready after a day of walking. Perfectly placed right in the centre and close to our favourite pub The Globe. Always a warm welcome there. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

  • "We really loved the location and amenities of Fox Cottage during our three day stay."

    If staying longer (for example a week) we would have needed a washer/drier as clothing tends to get muddy and wet after walking on Dartmoor. This is the only thing that would prevent us from booking again.

    The pump for the heating is quite noisy in the morning but apart from that I couldn't fault it, will definitely be booking again

  • "We were exceptionally pleased with the standards we found at Fox Hat Cottage, and spent a highly enjoyable weekend."

    Excellent facilities, and cleanliness. Chagford is a great little town, with a lovely selection of pubs/hotels and shops. We had some lovely meals out, and some excellent times sat around real log fires. The establishments were not expensive for meals or drinks. A drive up and around Dartmoor was time well spent, as were evenings around the log burner at Fox Hat Cottage. We would highly recommend.

  • "Chagford is a beautiful village well appointed with pubs, shops & restaurants."

    Our accommodation was in the centre of the billage so no driving required after parking up. Fox Hat Cottage is charming & well equipped, however a washing machine would be beneficial for a longer visit & the log burner stove needs slight maintenance on the lower door to aid efficiency. Yes, we will definitely be back & wonderful that we could bring our dog with us as well . Thank you for the welcoming cake, milk & well stocked beverage cupboard.

The property

This cosy, thatched cottage is located just paces from the vibrant town square in Chagford.

Here you'll find an array of independent boutiques and galleries welcoming pubs and quirky cafés.

Together with its characterful interior, Fox Hat Cottage provides a charming base for enjoying the amenities and local walks right from the doorstep.

After a day rambling on the moor, settle down in front of the woodburning stove and catch up on your favourite shows from the Smart TV.

Allow the chef of the group to get acquainted in the kitchen, assisted by an electric oven and gas hob among the appliances, while the rest of the group can prepare the dining table with crockery and cutlery.

Move upstairs to discover two bedrooms, both with superkingsize or zip/link beds which can be arranged as twins for ultimate flexibility.

When you’re ready to explore, you won’t have to walk far to reach a surprisingly large range of traditional pubs serving delicious food, along with many more restaurants to sample after a long walk on the riverbank.

Prepare a picnic and head for a relaxing stroll around Fernworthy Reservoir, or for a unique day out with the kids, the Dartmoor Llama Walks is a great experience with these adorable and gentle creatures.

Explore the Dartmoor National Park further and expect to find wild, open moorlands and deep river valleys, making it a haven for any outdoor enthusiast!

Explore Castle Drogo, a National Trust gem, with its magnificent gardens sitting high above the Teign Valley, while further afield lies the Cathedral city of Exeter, filled with rich history, culture and art.

For a getaway you won’t forget, a visit to Fox Hat Cottage is a must.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
