    “We booked very last minute, the night before the start of the holiday, and we received an immediate phone call to confirm details, which was reassuring.”

    Were also able to speak to property owner. Once we got there everything was the usual high standard you get from Helpful Holidays, so in that respect it was just as good as expected rather than exceeding expectations. Lovely upside down cottage, really impressed by the amount fitted into the tiny kitchen. The only thing it didn’t have was a pizza cutter, but didn’t need one as has really good knives and sharpener! We really enjoyed this bolt hole for a week and would definitely consider staying again.

The property

In the centre of the popular Dartmoor village of Lydford, this welcoming little cottage has been beautifully converted from a Devon stone barn.

It’s a super place for walkers, cyclists or anyone seeking peace and freedom, with a pub serving excellent food just 200 yards away, a lovely way to end a day exploring the stunning surrounding moorland.

The cottage is a smart gem for two, with the open-plan living/dining/kitchen laid out to take advantage of the space, oak floors and lofty beamed ceiling which soars to the apex, and a cosy wood burning stove for a romantic atmosphere on cooler evenings.

The comfortable double bedroom with its en suite shower-room is downstairs.

A little seating area outside is a lovely place to enjoy sunny evening drinks and a barbecue.

There is lots to explore around Lydford village, from the National Trust gorge with dramatic White Lady waterfall, a ruined medieval castle, tor-top church at Brentor, Cycle Route 27, riding stables and trout fishing in the River Lyd.

Roadford Lake, nine miles away, is a fine place for walking and water sports and the old market town of Tavistock is a fascinating place to wander.

Beaches on the north and south coast can be reached in about 25 miles.

Lot Cottage is a great place for couples to go adventuring or relax.

About the location


Tavistock 6 miles; Okehampton 6 miles.

Nestling among mature woodland on the western slopes of Dartmoor, the historic village of Lydford is a jewel in this area of outstanding scenic beauty. To the north, just half a mile away, the high tors come right down to the village edge, while to the south the River Lyd winds its way through Lydford Forest on its tumbling course northwards. Lydford village has an interesting medieval castle and nearby Lydford Gorge (National Trust) with its peaceful woodland walks and White Lady waterfall is a must. The village also has a Post Office, pub and award-winning restaurant. Whether walking the moors, fishing, watching the amazing wildlife or just visiting the many attractions of this stunningly beautiful area, you'll never be lost for something to do. The moorland market towns of Tavistock and Okehampton are both a short drive away.
