    “Your listing of the gallery failed to state/show that a huge communications tower is literally only approximately 7m from the property and that the shower and toilet block for the caravan park is actually attached to the side of the property.”

    This did not prove a problem at this time of year but in peak season I would imagine this could be a noisy intrusion as would the caravan park BBQ area which is situated by the property garden fence. The communication tower is horrible looming over the rear and ruins a nice setting had we known this we would not have booked the gallery.

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

OKEHAMPTON

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 (where Tourist Information can be found) and Okehampton train station, which has been restored to its 1950s glory running trains along a scenic route to Meldon the highest station in southern England. The town also has spectacular views across Dartmoor, 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.
