    “The Old Byre, Dousland is a beautifully presented and well-maintained holiday cottage.”

    Such personal touches as wine, cake, flowers, chocolates, Christmas Tree were all really appreciated. The cottage facilities are excellent; comfortable bed with lovely linen, really well equipped large kitchen accessed from the outside (very useful for wet feet and paws!), woodburning stove and double-ended bath really made our New Year stay exceptional. ...

    Such personal touches as wine, cake, flowers, chocolates, Christmas Tree were all really appreciated. The cottage facilities are excellent; comfortable bed with lovely linen, really well equipped large kitchen accessed from the outside (very useful for wet feet and paws!), woodburning stove and double-ended bath really made our New Year stay exceptional. Dousland is situated close to Burrator Reservoir and south Dartmoor which provides endless opportunities for walks. The hosts; Jill and Simon, were friendly, helpful yet discreet. Would not hesitate to recommend and would love to return.

The property

This smart little cottage is situated less than a mile from the small Devon village of Dousland on the south-western slopes of Dartmoor.

Next to the owners?

farmhouse, the accommodation has been beautifully renovated to an excellent standard.

On the ground floor is a good sized sitting room where you can curl up with a good book beside the cosy wood burning stove.

Whilst cooking or eating at the dining area in the kitchen, you will be distracted by the fabulous views of the horse in the paddock and the dramatic hills of Dartmoor beyond, tempting you to step out on to the patio which has a barbecue for alfresco meals.

Upstairs is the big and beautiful double bedroom with its romantic bathroom.

As well as your patio, you are welcome to use the garden beyond where you may spot wildlife around the pond or take on a boules challenge.
