    Mrs LightAug 2021

  • "We had a lovely relaxing holiday in this fabulous cottage, in a peaceful location with amazing views over the Devon countryside."

    The cottage is very clean, well equipped and spacious and the owners are very welcoming and helpful. Chagford is a special little town with independent shops, cafes and pubs. Dartmoor and it’s towns are very easily accessible and we visited several National Trust places nearby during our stay.

  • "Lovely property in a beautiful , peaceful location ."

    Marvellous walks directly out of the property Michael and Ghislaine are the kindest hosts you could wish for. Be prepared for some very narrow lanes as you leave Chagford for Yelfords.

    Mrs EdwardsJun 2021

  • "Yelfords cottage is in a perfect location to explore Dartmoor."

    We visited in late May 2021 and found the owners to be very friendly and helpful - greeting us and showing us around the lovely, well-equipped cottage - detailing the appliances and describing walks that started from our doorstep. From that point, they were unobtrusive, but fast to respond if we contacted them with any queries. After each day’s excursion, we would dine, play board games in the lounge or have barbecues in the sunlit courtyard - often watching huge buzzards soaring over the hills and woods of our scenic surroundings. We must have covered 70km+ on foot exploring the north east area of Dartmoor and it was great to return to a beautiful, light and spacious cottage with fantastic views and fascinating watercolour paintings that appear to have been painted by the owners or their family. We do not hesitate to recommend Yelfords Cottage as a wonderful place to stay and we would happily book future stays there. Christiana Royal Wootton Bassett

The property

This detached cottage is situated two miles from the Devon town of Chagford, in a rural spot within the 15 acre grounds of the owners’ house.

Comfortable and welcoming, it is a fine cottage for families or friends to enjoy.

The porch and large hall lead through to the bright sitting room with its slate floor, wood burning stove and French windows giving splendid views to the moorland hill of Meldon and access to a little patio.

The dining room also has French windows to the patio, where you can enjoy a barbecue.

The large kitchen is well equipped, and you have a useful downstairs shower room.

The master double, one of three wood-floored bedrooms, has an en suite shower room, as well as use of the family bathroom.

The garden is enclosed and sheltered by a rhododendron hedge.

From the cottage, head out on a twenty minute walk to the open moors, with its tors and ponies and sheep, and there are other lovely countryside walks from the door.

Chagford offers a choice of shops and inns, as well as a seasonal outdoor pool and tennis courts, and the cathedral city of Exeter is just 17 miles away.

Sandy beaches are a 20 mile drive.
