    Welcoming owner, who lives adjacent to The Milk Parlour. Gardens are an absolute joy, a bonus and a pleasure to enjoy with excellent space for dogs to roam safely. Ideal base and comfortable safe haven to explore Nth Dartmoor and local tourist attractions and beauty spots. Would definitely book here again. Have used Helpful Holidays numerous times over the past 25 - 30 years and appreciate that current times are difficult and different. However, e mail messages and text messages pinging on my mobile at 1.00am in the morning ( numerous times! ) from the middle of our week onwards reminding us how we should leave the property before we depart at 0900hrs on our last morning we found at best distasteful, distracting and annoying, especially given the stupid times they were consistently sent. Would recommend turning mobile on silent at night from middle of anyone's holidays onwards and assume this is a reflection on changes since being owned by Sykes Cottages? Might make us consider using again as never experienced this approach in all the years of previously using Helpful Holidays and never had any issues with the condition we have left properties in on departure previously.

The property

This detached cottage converted from an old milking parlour is situated amongst farmland in Sampford Courtenay.

With a charming garden, this is a calming cottage for a relaxing break to recharge your batteries.

Head on in to the open plan living area, all big, bright and beautiful, where you can watch TV, sit back and gaze over the garden or open the doors to the sunny patio on a fine day.

You have a handy bedroom on the ground floor, or take the stairs from the sitting area up to the gallery, a quiet area to read or play board games, then through to a twin bedroom which is made private from the sitting area below with a curtain.

All around the cottage are lovely gardens, well tended and a special place to wander and spot a wide range of plants and wildlife around the ponds and brook.

Stroll beyond to the good village inn, just ¼ mile along a lane, to enjoy an excellent menu, or the bustling town of Okehampton offers a choice of eateries as well as a cinema and leisure centre.

You can coarse fish nearby or head to Dartmoor for excellent walking or off road cycling.

With its central location, The Old Parlour is a brilliant place for soaking up the peace or touring the countryside and coast of Devon.

About the location

SAMPFORD COURTENAY

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.
