In the heart of the traditional little Dartmoor village of Holne is this charming Victorian cottage, only 100 yards from the village shop, Church House Inn and tea room.
Originally the village forge, it now nestles with its neighbouring cottages to make a cosy and welcoming home for families or couples to explore Dartmoor and the south coast.
As soon as you enter the front door, you will feel at home in the cosy sitting room with its open fire and oak floor with rugs.
A pretty little twin bedroom leads off this room, with two more double bedrooms (one with access to one side) found up the stairs.
Back on the ground floor, a low doorway leads into the kitchen, another snug room warmed by its electric Aga during cooler months and a back door to open on sunny days.
You'll find the smart bathroom on the ground floor too, a smart place for a leisurely soak after moorland walks.
With a neat gated garden to the front and an enclosed garden to the rear with small lawn and furniture, there are handy places to sit out with a cuppa.
There's a wide choice of activities to enjoy, with horse riding within a few miles, fishing in the River Dart, the sea at Torbay just 15 miles away and of course fantastic walks over the surrounding countryside and moorland.
Lazy Bear Cottage is a lovely traditional cottage for a relaxing Devon holiday.
Two x double bedrooms (one king size) upstairs with WC and basin. Downstairs twin bedroom. Ground floor bathroom with bath, WC, basin. Living room with open fire. Kitchen with dining area.
