  • Mr Woodman

    “The property was fully up to expectations, although clearly subject to Covid-19 conditions necessitating minor changes.”

    There was a warm welcome from the hosts ( and their pets). The standards of accommodation were high throughout and any reported faults or problems were quickly dealt with.

    There was a warm welcome from the hosts ( and their pets). The standards of accommodation were high throughout and any reported faults or problems were quickly dealt with. It should be clearly borne in mind that this is a working farm and care must be taken when moving around the site. The half mile long driveway was a bit rough unless driving a 4x4.

The property

1¼ miles from Sampford Courtenay, one of prettiest villages in mid-Devon, with its own indoor swimming pool, is this gorgeous thatched, cottage.

Named simply 'The Cottage', this beautiful chocolate box home has been renovated with great care and attention.

Inside the lofty, beamed, open-plan living space has a wood burning stove and French windows to a huge decked terrace - just right for sunbathing or outdoor meals.

On the ground floor are three bedrooms, all with en suite facilities – the master double with a huge bed that demands long lie-ins and easy starts, a second double and a twin.

From the terrace are glorious, panoramic views to Dartmoor over the owners' 205 wooded acres.

Nearby is the popular village inn, a traditional country pub serving excellent food.

Maybe fish for your catch of the day in a local river, or head to the open slopes of Dartmoor for great walking.

The bustling town of Okehampton has all you need for your holiday provisions, restaurants, a cinema and leisure centre.

Centrally located for exploring Devon, The Cottage is a peaceful base in lovely countryside.

About the location


Okehampton 2.5 miles.

Midway between Sampford Courtenay, a sleepy but picturesque Devon village, and Okehampton, a thriving community known as ‘the gateway to the moor’. The whole area is a country lover’s dream. The high tors of northern Dartmoor dominate the scenery and provide a splendid backdrop to Okehampton nestling in a valley where tumbling moorland rivers join before heading to the sea. For miles around, the area is famous for its country pubs that between them provide welcome rest after a day exploring the paths, cycle ways and stunning countryside. On a clear day the view from the top of High Willhays (the highest point south of the Pennines) will take your breath away. Country pursuits and crafts are a way of life and a trip to the Dartmoor Visitor Centre and country museum in Okehampton are musts. Look also at the pretty moorland villages of Chagford, Belstone and Sticklepath to savour a way of life that’s becoming increasingly rare.
