    “Such a lovely spot, the bungalow was ideal for our stay, warm even in the frosty weather!”

    The dogs loved the garden and the utility was just right for them to sleep in.

The property

Two miles from the small village of Scorriton on the beautiful sheltered and wooded southern slopes of the Dartmoor National Park is Moorside Cottage.

This smart and spacious, detached single-storey cottage is situated off a quiet no-through lane leading to a footpath direct to the open moor.

You can choose to eat either in the dining room or the gorgeous sunny conservatory which looks over the very pretty garden.

There are four lovely bedrooms, a king size double with an en suite shower-room, and a double and two singles which share a lavish bathroom.

Facing south, the cottage garden is private and secluded; children can play on the level lawns while you sit on the sunny terrace or tree-shaded lookout point and take in the stunning long views to the distant sea at Teignmouth.
