  • "What a beautiful cottage, absolutely spotlessly clean, beds were so comfy, it was lovely having breakfast in the little courtyard which was a sun trap."

    We had a fab holiday, it helped having mainly good weather so we were able to enjoy the many lovely walks from the door with our dog. Lovely village with two lovely pubs and a well stocked shop. A big thank you to Eva for the welcome pack for us and Laila our dog. Would definitely recommend.

  • "A lovely cottage for two adults and our dog, modern and spotless inside, with an extra-special generosity of welcome to make the stay feel very special."

    A lovely location with just a minute on the pavement to access a glorious river valley and up onto Dartmoor.

The property

Hobbs Cottage is nestled in a row of 19th century workers' cottages in the friendly village of Sticklepath, near South Zeal and Okehampton.

Located at the bottom of wooded Skaigh Valley in Dartmoor National Park, this period property is ideally located for adventure.

With its untamed beauty, Dartmoor is one of England's most rugged national parks where you can discover ancient stone circles, granite tors, wild moorland and encounter herds of wild ponies.

This very pet-friendly property is the perfect place for a family or a group of friends with two well-behaved dogs to explore the splendour of Dartmoor and its stunning surroundings; within walking distance of two pubs, a village shop and multitude of beautiful walking paths.

Enter through the front door to find a welcoming living room to your right complete with woodburning stove and Smart TV, ideal for relaxing after a fun filled day.

Continue through to the bright, traditional style kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook up your favourite dish and then serve to your guests at the dining table that seats four people.

If you don't want to cook there are several recommended options for dining-out within walking distance.

The cottage is equipped with a barbecue and outdoor dining set for those long, warm summer evenings.

Mucky pups can be comfortably cleaned up in the outdoor dog bath with hot and cold running water.

For cyclists, secure and spacious bicycle storage is available, accessed from your courtyard at the rear of the property.

When bedtime beckons, head upstairs where you’ll find two well-presented double bedrooms and a beautiful tiled bathroom in which you can refresh after the day’s activities.

If you can tear yourself away from relaxing at Hobbs Cottage, you can explore right from the doorstep, including the spectacular and wild moors and many National Trust locations.

Stop off after a long walk at one of the pubs or the tearoom and you’ll also find a well stocked village shop offering all the essentials.

Nearby attractions are Finch Foundry, Castle Drogo and Rosemoor RHS Gardens, and to really appreciate the spectacular beauty of nature, visit Cosdon Hill, Belstone Tor, go horse riding at Mary Tavy or cycle to Lydford Gorge.

Cyclists will find the Granite way and the Wray Valley cycle paths gentle and pleasing and there are plenty of more challenging routes out across the moors.

Explore the beauty of Devon and Cornwall easily with a stay at the charming Hobbs Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
