The property

A charming whitewashed thatched dwelling, Vineyard Cottage rests in the quaint village of Winkleigh, offering five guests a beautiful getaway to Devon.

Vineyard Cottage boasts a wonderful mix of traditional and contemporary interiors, is just an easy stroll to the village centre, and is a great touring base for Devon and North Cornwall.

Be welcomed into this picturesque property after you've admired the exterior, and head inside to find a beautiful dining room to greet you, with delightful finishing touches all around to create a lovely setting for mealtimes.

Discover a traditional stone inglenook fireplace in the heart of the sitting room, with a woodburning stove set in the centre for warming winter evenings, and an array of soft seating to relax on following a busy day, as well as a Smart TV to keep all entertained.

From here take a few steps up into the kitchen to find stylish fitted units and subway tiling housing a host of excellent appliances, including a handy dishwasher.

Make some drinks and snacks in here on a summer evening and take them outside into the enclosed courtyard to unwind in the last of the sun at the pretty bistro set.

Once the sun has set, head upstairs to find your elegant sleeping spot, comprising a king-size with a decorative fireplace, a single room with thoughtful decoration and a twin room boasting a built in wardrobe, each adorned with quality linens and furnishings.

Freshen up in the family bathroom where you'll find a bath with a hand held shower and an overhead shower, perfect for bathing little ones or taking a long hot soak.

Enjoy being just a short walk from the closest shop and pubs in the delightful village of Winkleigh, notable for being voted the 'best place to raise a family in the UK' in recent years, you can feel the community spirit for yourself as you meander the streets and browse the local businesses.

Venture down to the fringes of the Dartmoor National Park to the town of Okehampton to see the medieval ruins of Okehampton Castle, take walks along the River Okement, and sample delicious food from one of the cafés or restaurants here.

Head further into Dartmoor to find an array of diverting attractions, including the National Trust's impressive Castle Drogo built in the 1930s in a medieval style with turrets, gardens and a lovely café, or admire the sculptures in Stone Lane Gardens.

The Dartmoor National Park is excellent for walking and is home to a number of tors, with Yes Tor being a popular choice for hiking and offering fantastic views over the landscape.

Visit Cornwall's northern coast at Bude where you'll discover a great selection of sandy beaches for surfing, swimming and sunbathing, from Summerleaze Beach in the heart of Bude with the Bude Sea Pool, to Widemouth Bay further south or Sandymouth Bay up north.

Spend an afternoon having fun at the War Horse Valley Country Farm Park, home to horses, alpacas, pigs and sheeps among the residents, with a farm trail to walk, tractor rides to enjoy and a wealth of history to learn about too!

Other delights in the area include walking with alpacas, an RHS garden, the River Torridge, and the River Taw.

Winkleigh is a small rural village in the heart of Devon's rolling countryside and offers a shop, post office, butcher and a cafe, plus two pubs, one which offers food and the chance to sample traditional ciders and scrumpy from the Winkleigh Cider Company. A van which serves delicious fish and chips also comes to the village twice a week. Winding lanes, high hedgerows and a more gentle pace of life characterise the area.
