    Mr Powell

    “Honestly the best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in.”

    Very clean, tidy, well presented and thought out, and well resourced with everything you could possibly need for a stay on Dartmoor - long or short. Great quality throughout, comfy bed, warm, quality furniture, wonderful grand piano for those who play. The hosts are spot on - welcoming, helpful, there if you need anything but otherwise leave you to your privacy. Extra bonus of 2 lovely dogs and 2 hilarious ducks, if you are lucky enough for them to deign to visit you as they 'do their rounds' ...

Extra bonus of 2 lovely dogs and 2 hilarious ducks, if you are lucky enough for them to deign to visit you as they 'do their rounds' in the garden. Lovely private garden, off road parking, quiet, comfortable and a real gem. Easy in to Tavistock, Oakehampton, Moretonhampstead, if you need anything ( launderette in Tavistock if absolutely necessary) easy out onto the moors and wilderness. Great local farm shop for supplies, not too far from some amazing coastlines and sitting in the middle of the best of all worlds - coast, woods, moors, towns, amazing rivers - its got the lot. Wonderful base and a true home from home. Cannot recommend highly enough.

The property

In the centre of Lydford, converted from the top floor of a barn, tucked quietly within the owner's?

acre of garden is Townend Barn.

Surrounded by original sculptures and artwork, this is a wonderful retreat from the hurly burly of the modern world.

Inside is lofty and open-plan with ceilings to the apex, oak floors and a clever marriage of old and new furniture creating an intimate, cosy atmosphere.

The living accommodation, dining area and sleek fitted kitchen, feature notable artwork and sculptures, a wood burning stove and a handsome fully tuned Steinway grand piano.

A heavy curtain separates the pretty, comfortable double bedroom with a beamed ceiling.

Outside a sloping gravel path leads to your own lawned garden with a table and chairs.

Lydford, on Dartmoor?s western edge has two good food pubs, a farm shop and is famous for its National Trust gorge and waterfall, and ruined medieval castle.

You can cycle or walk along the Granite Way, fish on the river Lyd or ride a horse across the moors from local stables.

Further afield the market town of Tavistock has plenty of shops, restaurants, an indoor pool and cinema.

Equidistant between the north and south coasts, the sea and beaches are about 25 miles away.

About the location

LYDFORD

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.
