Beacon Cottage is a spacious, substantial detached house with a bright and light interior situated just a 2-minute walk from Dartmoor National Park on the edge of Ivybridge.

Being just a 5-minute drive from the A38, Beacon Cottage is a lovely base for those wanting to explore the wider region. This is a lovely, family-friendly house, perhaps ideal for visiting relatives in the area, summer holidays, or a cosy winter break with the open fire in the living room and central heating.

    The best of South Devon is easily accessible from this very comfortable house situated within yards of the moor and close to the expressway and the facilities and welcome ensure that it is always a pleasure to return.

    We were a family of 4 staying in the cottages over the Christmas period, the house was decorated and very well presented. The property is south facing with lovely views of the farms and landscape, with a bird feed and cows complimenting the view. The weather was not the best, but the size of the property made it possible to relax indoors with the children, enjoying the fireplace and the sitting areas. This must be one of the best equipped properties we have been to, with all the necessities and quite a few added luxuries. Rooms are generously sized and have great views as well. All in all a great week away....to be honest during that week I looked to extend our stay, but it was already taken!

    Our second visit and hopefully not our last. This place never disappoints. It is a home you dream of owning and living in. Everything you could wish for.

    Beacon cottage is superbly situated on the edge of Dartmoor, ideal for walking or visiting the many attractions nearby. The cottage is really kept and equipped, clean and spacious. The garden is big enough for children to play in, although the weather meant we couldn't make much use of it. The boys loved the games room and spent quite a while playing on the table football, although they loved coming back in for the recliners! Some local walking information would have been helpful - we ended up buying a book of short walks for Dartmoor - as it wasn't until our second to last day that we were told we could walk up the small lane behind the cottage to get onto the moor. We found everything we could want in Ivybridge, which was even in walking distance for us, and ordering a Tesco delivery meant that we didn't have to worry about shopping or bringing food. The cream tea was most welcome, as was the fudge that we didn't get to see. The beds were comfortable and the property was warm. In all it was a splendid holiday, even if we did get the standard damp Dartmoor weather and we all ended up with colds. We would definitely return and would happily recommend a stay in this lovely cottage.

    Beacon cottage is a spacious, comfortable home with three good bedrooms and a spacious lounge with amazing views. Situated on the fringe of Dartmoor there are wonderful walking tracks literally from the doorstep. The property is very well equipped and the kitchen works well with an Aga in addition to a conventional oven and conventional hob. An open fire in the lounge made a stormy evening a cosy experience. A very enjoyable stay.
