  • "Ludgate Cottage is an an excellent location."

    Paths onto the moor and up to Haytor Rocks from the garden gate. The house is warm and comfortable with a well equiped kitchen. Communication with the owner is very good. This is an ideal location to explore Dartmoor and South Devon from and I would highly recommend staying here

    Mr HardingSep 2021

  • "Lovely cottage and a great opportunity to get out on the moors every day."

    One thing that impressed us was the attention to detail and the little things that show extra thought, like the cake waiting for us, and the fact that the kitchen was really well kitted out. We're definitely thinking of booking again.

The property

Below the striking Dartmoor landmark of Haytor is this semi-detached cottage, close to the small village of Haytor Vale.

With amazing views as far as the sea, this is a wonderful place for walking, cycling and touring the magnificent scenery.

Head up the steps to the front door and through the hall you will find two downstairs oak-floored bedrooms with a bathroom.

The big airy sitting room with characterful beams is upstairs for those absorbing views, together with a kitchen fitted in oak and black granite with a dining area.

The grassy garden opposite the cottage faces south and has a picnic table for alfresco meals, and you can store bikes in a garage.

The focal point of this friendly cottage is clearly the surrounding moorland which is perfect for enjoying the great outdoors and gazing at the panoramic views.

Welcoming little towns and villages like Bovey Tracey and Widecombe-in-the-Moor have plenty of eateries and places of interest to explore.

Ludgate Cottage is a fine place for discovering Dartmoor and Devon’s countryside.
