    “Dishcombe Cottage is a perfect piece of Devon heaven.”


    Caroline and Luke have converted this old artist's studio into such a beautifully large three bedroom accommodation we booked twice in a three month period. The cottage is stunning, spotless and warm and welcoming. The architect did a fantastic job. We appreciated having the necessities provided upon our arrival. When you're arriving at a cottage after five hours of driving it's nice to know there is body wash provided and hand soap as well as kitchen supplies like olive oil and salt and pepper. Out of the twelve cottages we have reviewed in Devon, Dishcombe is the only cottage where everything you needed to get you started was provided. Eleven other cottages didn't even have hand soap in the bathroom. These other the extras that make Dishcombe unique. The location is picturesque. If you're an artist or if you appreciate a stunning view of rolling hills, this is the place for you to relax. The owners, Luke and Caroline are absolutely lovely and can suggest many fantastic places to visit and walks to go on. Caroline, you make the best brownies ever! South Zeal has all you can look for. The locals are friendly and there are two excellent pubs within walking distance. The Oxenham Arms has a fantastic menu and is an absolute "must see". A big thank you to Luke and Caroline for sharing your cottage with us. Your cottage should fall under the luxury cottage category. Absolutely perfect. Exceeded our expectations.

The property

Situated one mile from the Dartmoor village of South Zeal, this lovely cottage shelters down a private drive behind the owner's’ house.

With big rooms and wonderful style, it is an ideal place for couples or a family to enjoy peace and tranquillity on the edge of the moors.

From a courtyard with cobbles, a step takes you up into the well equipped kitchen with its granite worktops and area for your outdoor gear.

Up another step, you will find yourself in the spacious open plan sitting room with dining area and French windows looking over the landscaped garden.

The three double bedrooms upstairs, two of which can convert to twin, have marvellous views across a valley and use of two lovely bathrooms with shower cubicles.

Chill out and relax around the garden table and chairs which take in great countryside views, or wander across the lawn to woodland and a pond where wildlife thrives.

You are welcome to walk further around the surrounding meadows too.

Head into the village to find two traditional old pubs, tennis courts and a shop, or a little further you can find all the amenities you could wish for in the town of Okehampton or the city of Exeter.

For sandy beaches, you can head to Bude on the north coast or Exmouth on the south coast, each about 30 miles away.

Dishcombe Cottage is a fabulous retreat in an amazingly peaceful Dartmoor spot.
