  • “We chose Heather Cottage to rest and relax in what we thought were tranquil surroundings as we are both key workers.”


    However, we had to endure Network Rail working a stones throw away from the cottage at Okehampton. The first week they worked 7 days a week from 7.30am until 19.00, with heavy machinery lifting railway tracks and sleepers. The 2nd week they worked through to 3am!!! While this is out with your control, we strongly feel we should have been warned that this work was taking place. It’s just like arriving at your apartment in Spain to find a construction site next door. You wouldn’t definitely make a claim against your travel firm!

About the location


Exeter 23 miles.

Okehampton is a busy market town on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park and near the highest and most dramatic areas of the moor, where Yes Tor rises to a height above 2000 feet. To the north of Okehampton are some beautiful rolling Devon hills where small farming villages nestle amidst woods and fields with plenty of gently flowing rivers. The fabulous Roadford Reservoir offers a multitude of watersport activities and fishing opportunities. Okehampton has a prominent medieval castle overlooking a wooded river valley, the Museum of Dartmoor Life (where Tourist Information can be found) and Okehampton train station, which has been restored to its 1950s glory running trains along a scenic route to Meldon the highest station in southern England. The town also has spectacular views across Dartmoor, access to fabulous walks and Simmons Park where you’ll find a children’s adventure playground. This area of Devon has plenty of farm shops and country inns serving good food where visitors can spend time relaxing and unwinding amongst unspoilt countryside.
