  • "A really lovely holiday home, particularly if you have a dog as they are made very welcome."

    ..great views, big garden (plus extras such as sunloungers, fire pit etc) very spacious feel, clean and a very comfy bed! The garden and short walks from the door were perfect for my senior doggo but the Pegasus trail is just 5 mins away and another public footpath in the opposite direction if you want to walk for miles! Very well equipped too, will definitely plan a return trip - thanks!

    We were very comfortable with the lovely wood burner and luckily had our own logs as only an initial supply is provided. Our dogs enjoyed the very safe garden.

    Gill and Derek are lovely and Gill went the extra mile bringing us some potatoes for our dinner when she learnt that we had none. Thank you both x

  • "We booked a week's stay at View The Gallery for New Year 2023."

    When we arrived, the barn was warm & welcoming along with a homemade cream tea from Gill, which was lovely & much needed plus a beautifully decorated Christmas tree! Unfortunately we picked the worst week in history to stay, as we endured sideways rain for the majority of our holiday but that didn't dampen our stay! The facilities were great, being able to store & cook all of the food we wanted, a huge bathroom with more than enough hot water (& lovely towels too!), Smart TVs (which we had to make use of given the weather on some days!), nice secure garden for our dogs to wander around in & private parking. The town is a short drive away with a great choice of supermarkets & shops. The barn is situated in a rural area so was fantastically peaceful with easy access to Dartmoor! Visit Meldon Reservoir, you will not be disappointed! We had our perfect New Year despite the weather & will definitely be back again! Thank you Gill & Derek for your kind hospitality!

Very well equipped kitchen including dish water and washing machine. The bedroom was large with plenty of storage. The bed was large and very comfy. The bathroom was large with both bath and separate shower. Plenty of towels. We loved the terrace at the front although it was too wet to sit there. The sun room with art equipment was lovely to sit in and look at the view. The enclosed garden for the dog was the best we have had out of all the places we have stayed previously. Including the enclosed dog walking field just a few yards away. Very impressed. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend. Gill and Derek are very welcoming and family.

  • "This is a lovely cottage with wonderful views, great facilities and fantastic hosts."

    The only thing that didn't quite work for us was the fence as there is a gap at around the 4 foot height. For the vast majority of people with dogs, this wouldn't be a problem, but unfortunately we have a Houdini rescue dog on our hands who was able to climb up and through the gap. It did mean she had to be kept on a long lead all weekend which was a bit of a shame as we were looking forward to her having a run around. But I don't want to criticise the hosts who were amazing and we are well aware that our rescue dogs do need a little more security than most dogs. If the gap in the fence was increased to the top of the fence post, we'd definitely be back. I just wanted to share this incase there is anyone else with a Houdini dog interested in booking the cottage. If your dog is not a climbing escapee artist, then we could not recommend this place enough!

  • "We had a lovely relaxing stay at this cottage."

    Wonderful views across the highest tors in Dartmoor. Great base for exploring NE and NW Dartmoor. Only 45 minutes to Bude on the coast which is worth a visit. The cottage had a delightful cream tea on arrival and the owners were very helpful and friendly. We had lots of wildllife to enjoy including Mr Mole, Sheep, geese, wild rabbits and a horse in the paddock. The cottage had all we needed for a comfortable stay including a log fire which was cosy. The small criticism was that the Christmas tree had a coating on it to stop the needles falling inside the cottage, and unfortunately this gave off a pungent smell like linseed oil in putty. This did cause breathing issues for me as I have asthma. Plus there were a few cobwebs in the rafters. But these are minor issues as the tree was for Christmas time at the cottage and not there all year round. The memory foam mattress takes getting used to as it can cause overheating during rest but still comfortable. There are occasional noises to accept as the property has public toilets on the outside wall of the property for the use of the campers. But overall the holiday experience was great and relaxing and I have already recommended the cottage to friends. Great base for exploring and great to have an enclosed garden to use in the summer plus great for pet dogs to run around in safely . It was great to have everything on the ground floor and the water is really hot for baths plus large bathroom with good shower and toilet. Great to have heated towel rail too. Nice and clean with nice soaps and plenty of towels. Just need to vacuum up the cob webs from the rafters plus check under the leather cushions on the sofa bed to vacuum a bit of dust, but apart from that it was a great cottage

The property

This unique Devon retreat is off the usual beaten track, with fabulous far reaching views across green meadows where horses peacefully graze, towards Dartmoor.

Situated adjacent to a small caravan site with only 5 pitches, and close to a golf course and fishing site, this cottage offers a quiet bolthole for walkers, cyclists and countryside lovers.

The cottage is detached, spacious and flooded with light.

There are also some superb reminders that this lodge was an art gallery in the past, with stunning local artwork available to purchase if you feel tempted.

The open plan living space with cosy woodburning stove looks out to the moors, as does the superking double bedroom which is sure to give you a comfy nights sleep.

After a day in the countryside, relax on the patio in your little private garden and fire up the barbecue for some local Devon produce.

Close by is the small town of Okehampton with plenty of amenities, including a heritage railway and the Granite Way cycle track & which has the added benefit of being able to hire good quality bikes at Sourton.

Walkers can enjoy the many fantastic routes nearby over Dartmoor National Park.

This is a wonderful escape from the hurly burly.

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 and Okehampton train station, which has been restored to its 1950s glory: The Dartmoor Line now operates a service between Okehampton and Exeter every hour, 7 days a week. The town also has 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.
