    “This was a get away from it all holiday and this location met all we wanted.”

    Would describe as comfortably rustic. Probably not for people with limited mobility.

The property

This pretty semi-detached thatched cottage is situated on the Dartmoor Way lane in the pretty little peaceful village of North Bovey.

Dating from the 17th century and Grade II listed, it is a charming and atmospheric place for a family or friends to enjoy the splendid surroundings.

On the ground floor the sitting room is wonderfully traditional with wood burning stove in a massive inglenook fireplace, ancient beams and window seat with valley views, plus a kitchen area.

Step down through a cute little doorway to your dining room.

Generations over history have wended their way up the steep winding stairs to the two cosy bedrooms, now with modern family bathroom.

Outside, there is a long wooded garden with a shaded seating area which you access across the neighbours driveway, and lovely rural views.

To explore further, head down the lane to stepping stones across the River Bovey, a pretty little tree-shaded spot to dream and watch fish and dragonflies.

Beyond this are lovely walks in all directions, in the foothills of open Dartmoor.

For friendly pubs for eating out, Moretonhampstead and Manaton are just the ticket.

Little Gate Cottage is a smashing base for enjoying peace and tranquillity in a wonderfully unspoiled village location.

Ring of Bells Inn in walking distance.
