  • “Cottage was lovely.”

    No parking space. Surrounding area full of narrow lanes so getting around was difficult

The property

Surrounded by natural wonder and stunning scenery, Rookwood is a delightful base for families and friends to come together and explore the beauty of Dartmoor National Park.

This highly desirable area of Devon is ideal for those seeking peace and idyllic pristine countryside.

Step inside the stone white-washed cottage to be greeted by antique furnishings and English country cottage style.

Take a seat in front of the woodburning stove, taking centre stage in the traditional inglenook, or bring a book along and take a seat the modest dining table to enjoy the tranquility of the area.

Moving through into the kitchen/diner you will find that the stylish interior continues, with sleek cream white units and an impressive red Rangemaster cooker, this room is the perfect place to enjoy a home-cooked meal together and some quality family time.

When the evening draws to a close, take comfort in one of the two zip/link king-size bedrooms, one with its own en-suite shower room and the other being serviced by a ground-floor bathroom with luxurious freestanding bath and separate shower.

This pretty cottage ensures that everyone has a snug spot in which to relax, encompassed by a wonderful decor.

Enjoy summertime alfresco meals in the rear courtyard garden before heading out to explore the local area.

Drewsteignton enjoys a range of good pubs nearby and some excellent eateries.

After an afternoon rambling in the National Park or nearby Teign Gorge, why not take an evening meal by the river or in the nearby town of Chagford, where you'll find quaint shops and boutiques.

Further afield, the cathedral city of Exeter offers plenty of retail therapy and family-friendly attractions, whilst the beaches of the south coast can be reached with a short drive.

Rookwood is the ultimate choice for your country getaway to this wonderful area of Dartmoor in Devon.
