    “Whilst the owner emailed me the week before we went to advise me about the difficult steep driveway, when we arrived we were quite surprised how bad it actually is.”

    It is fairly steep but the main problem is how rough it is. Any well loaded family car will scrape the bottom. We have a 4x4 so got away with it, but it was still not easy to negotiate.

    It is fairly steep but the main problem is how rough it is. Any well loaded family car will scrape the bottom. We have a 4x4 so got away with it, but it was still not easy to negotiate. The cottage which is nice inside really does need a good clean. We had to get the cleaner out when we arrived as it was filthy. Things need cleaning above ground level. Bathroom in main bedroom smells damp. So overall we were disappointed.

The property

In the tiny Devon hamlet of Wonson near the village of Throwleigh on Dartmoor, this welcoming cottage has been meticulously converted with two attached cottages from a long stone barn beside a friendly little pub which serves good food.

You will be struck by the light and airy living space, where everything has been hand built and thoughtfully designed for your comfort.

Off the kitchen, with its dining area, a utility room has been considerately equipped with space for drying your walking boots and coats.

After your Dartmoor walks, snuggle down beside the wood burning stove in the bright living room, before heading upstairs for a good night’s sleep in one of three bedrooms, all en suite.

Behind the cottage you have your own private enclosed garden with granite table and bench, or enjoy a drink in the little pub garden to the front which has views over countryside to the moors.

This is a perfect place for keen walkers, being on the ancient Mariners’ Way and adjoining a beautiful area of Dartmoor.

The moorland village of South Zeal and town of Chagford offer a variety of welcoming inns, and Okehampton town with its cinema, leisure centre, cycle track and heritage railway is only five miles away.

Moorhaven is a fantastic base for enjoying Dartmoor and traditional Devon life.
