    Its central location is perfect for visiting all corners of Devon and only half hour from Cornwall. Meldon reservoir is within walking distance, leading to direct access to the moors and Yes Tor. The setting is peaceful and tranquil with beautiful flower gardens, free range chickens, wildlife and views of the moors opposite. There is a spectacular view of Yes Tor from the master bedroom and the big double bed is divine! The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, leading onto a private patio, dining area. There is a very generous welcome pack, including free range eggs, which we appreciated having arrived quite late. The owners have created a really welcoming and relaxing holiday home here and it's evident that a lot of care and thought have been given to ensure visitors' experience is perfect. Thank you.

Take a short drive into Sourton Down where you can enjoy an evening out at The Pump & Pedal pub, hire a bike, or grab any essentials you need from the shell garage. Nearby is the town of Okehampton which offers tours of a medieval castle, as well as great walking paths and picnic sports with pretty flowers around the castle gardens.
