The property

With stunning views over countryside to the sea, this single storey Devon cottage nestles behind a Dartmoor smallholding on the edge of Mary Tavy with an entertaining variety of animals and a gate leading straight on to the open moor.

This is a smashing base for couples, where you will feel right at home as soon as you step into the smart kitchen with handy dining area.

The traditional Devon living continues in the living room, where you will sink into leather sofas beside the cosy wood burning fire and on sunny days French windows open to the garden.

The double bedroom with big bed is pretty and romantic and the large bathroom has a shower as well as bath for soaking tired limbs after a long walk on the moors around the cottage.

Your lawn garden is enclosed and has a patio with table and chairs for outdoor breakfast over the papers or alfresco suppers.

This is an excellent place for simply relaxing, or you can head out to all kinds of fun activities here, especially walking or cycling.

You can even hire bicycles or get your own bikes repaired on site.

The village of Mary Tavy has a pub, shop and café so you don't need to go far for essentials, although with Tavistock town just a few miles away and the city of Plymouth 18 miles away, you may be tempted to explore further afield.

The tor-top church at Brentor is a spectacular sight to visit, and for beaches you're spoiled for choice between the Devon and Cornish coasts about 25 miles away.

The Barn is a super friendly cottage for a break to recharge your batteries.
