    the two couples who stayed at this address were welcomed to the property - flowers, fudge, fruit basket awaited us, the log fire burning brightly. This was very well received as the journey had been fairly difficult with the amount of traffic and heavy rain all the way. One of our party, elderly, and having a stroke some years ago, collapsed during the morning in the downstairs bathroom. I ran to the property owner, and used his phone for a 999 call for an ambulance, the owner of the property was able to explain exactly how to get to the house, as it was difficult up a long rough lane. He then stayed with the patient talking trying to wake him, taking pulses and listening to breathing. He was superb staying almost 1.5 hrs until ambulance staff arrived taking over. Thankfully our friend was fine again by the afternoon, Mr and Mrs Thomas were friendly, and helpful, allowing us to take our two dogs into a field with less mud after the heavy rain. They adjusted the central heating almost immediately after asking for assistance with this. The property is very nice, beds very comfortable. Good book selection, and paperwork on local amenities. Yes we would consider a summer visit, to be in superb countryside and wonderful views, where our grandsons could help feed the resident pigs, horses and chickens. We know the area well, so for us no difficulty in driving up to the property, We also came home with home killed pork and beef which was on sale from the owners. Yes a very good property, with kindly owners where nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Carole Duckett,

The property

Tavistock 4 miles.

An immaculately-presented detached barn conversion on a traditional Dartmoor hill farm, where they breed pigs and cattle, in an isolated position, within the Dartmoor National Park, a mile from the small village of Peter Tavy, and close to the market town of Tavistock.

In a rural setting up on the moor and with magnificent views of Dartmoor, this cosy cottage, which dates back to 1900 is ideal for a peaceful getaway close to excellent walking routes.

Boasting an attractive interior with oak flooring, exposed beams, luxurious soft furnishings and a stone fireplace housing a woodburning stove, this Tavistock cottage retains much original character and charm.

The open plan living area opens out to a private enclosed sunny garden, a quiet place to read and relax; whilst indoors, the woodburning stove will ensure that guests are always warm, whatever the season.

There is a very spacious mezzanine king-size double bedroom, along with a bathroom on the first floor, whilst on the ground floor is a twin bedroom and shower room.

From inside you can admire the panoramic views and on the farm itself you can enjoy completely, uninterrupted 350 degree views of the surrounding moor.

Also from this lovely holiday home there’s almost zero light pollution, with the Milky Way frequently and clearly visible.

WhiteTor Farm is home to a number of small farm animals such as New Zealand Kunekune pigs, Pygmy goats and chickens, guests can take part in animal tasks such as daily feeding and egg collecting if they wish.

This property has direct access to Dartmoor, without the need to cross roads and is a walkers and dog lovers paradise, plus just a ten minute walk away is a Bronze Age settlement, and there are standing stones within reach.

Also a number of famous Dartmoor sites are a short walk or drive away.

Reached by a drive up the side of a moor, Tavistock has a good range of shops and some renowned restaurants and pubs, while the slopes of Dartmoor are on the edge of the town and are very popular with walkers.

With National Trust properties and outstanding gardens in the area, along with sandy beaches within an hour's drive, this delightful cottage is the ideal base to get away from it all and for exploring this stunning and wild part of Devon.
