    “Acorn Cottage had everything we needed for our stay.”

    The cottage was lovely, comfortable and in a very quiet location. It was also convenient for visiting the surrounding areas.

About the property

300 yards from the pub in the very pretty hamlet of Meavy, is Acorn Cottage.

Four steps up from the quiet lane in which it sits and you're into the porch where you can kick off your walking boots, beyond which is a good-sized living room with a handsome open fire.

The dining room is lovely, a perfect space to get together and recount the day's adventures before retiring to the sunny conservatory to while away the evening.

Upstairs are three gorgeous bedrooms - two doubles and a twin sharing a family bathroom.

At the rear is an enclosed garden with a neat lawn, table and chairs, shrubs and potted plants.

Right on the edge of west Dartmoor, Meavy has a good pub serving delicious meal and around its little green and ancient oak tree, rural scenes from the 'War Horse' movie were filmed.

At nearby Yelverton, there are shops and a good golf course, whilst Burrator Reservoir offers walking and fishing.

The market town of Tavistock which has an indoor pool and cinema and the city of Plymouth with shops, theatres and historic Barbican are both about 8 miles away.
