  • “We had a wonderful time.”

    Tavistock is beautiful and the house is absolutely lovely, perfect for a larger family group. The lounge is comfy and cosy for watching TV and movies (the new Smart TV is a great addition), and having the dining room for meals, board games and chatting as well is great. The home feels spacious but friendly. The kitchen has good equipment for cooking your own meals. The bedrooms are large with plenty of storage space. ...

    Tavistock is beautiful and the house is absolutely lovely, perfect for a larger family group. The lounge is comfy and cosy for watching TV and movies (the new Smart TV is a great addition), and having the dining room for meals, board games and chatting as well is great. The home feels spacious but friendly. The kitchen has good equipment for cooking your own meals. The bedrooms are large with plenty of storage space. I have noted some recent negative reviews and would like to make clear this was not our experience at all. The property cleaner contacted us early in the week to make sure we were ok with everything and not experiencing the same issues as previous guests (we weren’t), which was a kind touch. For an older, countryside home it is in excellent condition. There was a mild smell from the drains in the utility which I’m sure I wouldn’t have even noticed if not for reading previous reviews and is in my experience pretty common in older rural houses after there has been period of heavy rain. It didn’t bother us or impact on our holiday at all. The location is great, just outside of the town centre but an easy 15-20 minute stroll in, with access through the estate down to the river and old canal which makes an excellent route for a countryside walk or run. There is a corner shop 5 minutes walk and a larger Morrison’s 20 minutes walk. And just a short drive (10 - 15 mins) to beautiful Dartmoor. We had a wonderful time as we have done staying in Old Berkeley before and will definitely come back again. This has become a home away from home for my family and I look forward to our next trip!

The property

This detached house dating from the 1920s is situated in a cul-de-sac on the hill looking over the Devon town of Tavistock.

Light and comfortable, it is a friendly base for couples or families to enjoy discovering Devon and Dartmoor.

The front door to the hall then takes you into the attractive sitting room with its open fire and bay window giving views of the garden.

On sunny days, head on through into the sun room.

Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room or in the breakfast room off the kitchen, which has a handy table for four.

A large utility room with shower room completes the ground floor.

The views over the town from the two double bedrooms which you will find upstairs are charming, and there is a pretty little single bedroom too, which shares the family bathroom.

To the front of the house, you have an enclosed garden with pretty plants, small fenced pond and a terrace where you can enjoy alfresco meals at the table and chairs.

For eating out, wander down into Tavistock town centre where you will find a choice of restaurants, as well as the leisure centre, theatre, pubs and shops.

From the town, the 21 mile Drakes Trail heads off to Plymouth, a great way to get to the city by bike or on foot.

The city’s amenities are 15 miles by road, and in just another five miles you reach the lovely sandy beaches of the South Hams.

With golf, horse riding and National Trust places to visit at Lydford Gorge, Saltram House, Buckland Abbey and Cotehele, there is plenty to keep you occupied when you enjoy a holiday at Old Berkeley.
