  • "Just lovely, would move in tomorrow."


    Mrs BaileyNov 2021

  • "Absolutely Fantastic"

    Mr HaywardOct 2021

  • "Everything about the property and location was so much more then expected."

    The only issues were the ensuite shower went hot and cold and was not possible to use, so all 10 of us had to share the main shower. The access route is narrow and the bushes could be damaging to new vehicles like mine. Otherwise we were happy with everything and will consider booking again

  • "For 10 people the facilities were a bit tight"

    Mrs AllenAug 2021

  • "The house had everything you could think of and more."

    Very comfortable and clean. Lane to house a bit narrow but well worth the trip.

    Mrs BritoJul 2021

  • "Rockmead is equipped over and beyond what you normally get at holiday rentals."

    Everything was in working order. The family made allowances for us to enter earlier ( we had 2 grandkids under 3). I loved it all. The location. The large gardens. The hamlet. The atmosphere.

    Mrs OttwayJun 2021

  • "The cottage is in the most beautiful little village and was spotless."

    Could be improved with the furniture and the art etc being updated.

    Miss ButcherJun 2021

  • "Rockmead is a beautiful stone property in a stunning location."

    My family including dogs and a three year old had a great week despite indifferent weather. The house was spotless and extremely well equipped. The area is beautiful and walks from the door were much appreciated. Guides on every aspect of the house and suggestions for things to do were provided and very helpful. Highly recommended.

    Ms KrasnoMay 2021

  • "Rockmead was warm cosy and peaceful."

    It rained nearly every day of the 2 weeks we were there, so we spent alot of time at the cottage. The beds were comfortable and the bedding of a good standard..The cottage was very clean and well presented in terms of everything we needed. The sitting room has too much furniture with 3 very large sofas and a huge dining table.and many dining room chairs. The sofas look comfy but are extremely deep and seating is hard, so not comfortable sitting. The 2 upstairs bathrooms while serviceable, and lots of hot water, really need updating..We discovered a leak in the the small bathroom, with water running down the pipe behind the pedestal, this is a long standing leak as the pipe is discoloured. There was water on the floor when we arrived which we thought had just been mopped. We dried it, but when using the toilet at night my slippers were soaked by water on the floor from the pipe. Mortonhampstead has a good Coop and provides local groceries, or choice of 3 supermarkets at Oakhampton . Abundant wildlife in the garden.and the moor is a wonderful wildlife and animal resource. Overall we had a peaceful relaxed stay.

    Mrs RobinsonMay 2021

  • "An exceptional cottage."

    It was beautiful and so was the garden. Wonderful walks and very peaceful. The cottage had absolutely everything that we could have needed. The wildlife was amazing and we particularly enjoyed watching and listening to the owls.

The property

If you want to get away from it all, and return to nature, then this big detached house in the peaceful, ancient moorland hamlet of Lettaford is ideal.

Set quietly at the end of a hedgerow lane, separate from the few other houses, the Two Moors Way leads past the door to the open expanses of Dartmoor, inviting you to walk and dream.

Natural wood and granite have been carefully preserved to create a characterful and welcoming living space, with a wood burning stove in the living room with its big dining table, and floor to ceiling windows in the kitchen, from where you can wander out to the lovely garden, maybe with a refreshing glass in hand to start the barbecue for an alfresco supper.

With two downstairs bedrooms and two upstairs, you are spoiled for choice of sleeping accommodation, ensuring a good night’s rest after wandering the moors and watching the children play on the swings and slide in the garden.

With amenities of shops, inns and good eating places in the friendly town of Chagford three miles away, this is a magical place for families to relax, play and watch the moon and the barn owls.
