    Miss Fardell

    “Although only a short drive from the A30, this cottage is situated on a peaceful country lane leading down to the moor.”


    The cottage was elegant and brilliantly equipped - nothing had been left to chance. The mattress on the king size bed was firm and fabulous - and ensured good sleeps. The beautiful and well-tended walled garden was happily secure enough for even the most adventurous of springer spaniels who spent many happy hours hunting the flower beds for squirrels whilst I lazed on the bench reading books. Genuinely dog-friendly, there is a stair-gate ensuring dogs can't accidentally explore upstairs and a roomy utility room where dogs can enjoy their own space. Peace of mind for everyone. Ideally suited to those who enjoy walking and those who appreciate the beauty and quiet of Dartmoor, the cottage offered a warm and cosy haven after a morning yomping across the moor.

The property

Set in peaceful countryside, this lovely cottage converted from a traditional Devon linhay is a wonderful place for walking a spectacular area of Dartmoor.

The quality fabrics, carefully chosen colours and original paintings create a haven which is relaxing and characterful.

On the ground floor the large open plan living area is a sociable space, leading through French windows to the garden patio.

The two bedrooms upstairs are restful, with beams and views of fields from the pretty double.

Surrounded by a granite wall, the garden is a welcoming space to sit out, or you can wander further along a track to a meadow and stream where dragonflies dart.

A friendly, traditional Devon inn is just over a mile away, or you can go a little further to the bustling small towns of Chagford or Okehampton, which offer a choice of inns, interesting shops and eateries.

This is a brilliant base for walking Dartmoor and the ancient Mariners?
