Okehampton, the gateway to Dartmoor National Park is close to this thatched cottage, with beams and inglenook fireplace, with easy access to Castle Drogo.

A comfortable and cosy thatched cottage forming part of a wing of the owner’s impressive 15th century thatched house. The holiday cottage has been presented to ensure a modern feel but still retaining plenty of character including beams and inglenook fireplace. The cottage is spread over two floors with a large living/dining area and kitchen, and then up stairs is a double bedroom and a bathroom. Situated outside the village of North Tawton, the cottage makes an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding Devon countryside.

    A perfect place to get away from it all and chill out. A beautifully renovated cottage with all the modern conveniences. Lovely secluded little garden to relax in after a days activities.

    Happy Cottage is a charming little cottage but felt very spacious. We loved the welcome basket with a tasty cream tea, bread and milk. The dogs had a tasty treat waiting too. We bet Pippa and Derek on arrival and found them a very lovely couple, they have made Happy Cottage a very warm, welcoming and homely place to stay. The decor and furnishings are all to a very high standard. The location is very good as it is quite central for reaching all of Devon, both coasts are only 40 minutes away. We would definitely stay again. We had a great 3 night break with our two dogs.

    Amazing cottage to stay at. Such a warm welcome from Pippa and a delicious cream tea waiting. The cottage was spotless and the fire was loaded and ready to light. And the bed was soooooo comfy. Will definitely return and would recommend to anyone.

    Spent Christmas at Happy Cottage and it was wonderful. Beautifully decorated with a real Christmas tree. Welcome pack included mulled wine and mince pies. The bed was so comfortable and the cottage was very well equipped and extremely clean and comfortable. Highly recommended

    Pippa and Derek made us very welcome from the moment we arrived. The cottage was beautiful, there was a lovely goody basket of scones, butter, jam, clotted cream & a loaf of bread, even two lovely biscuit bones for Ruby and Elsie 🐶🐶. We had a lovely time at Happy Cottage, everything about the cottage is presented so well. Each evening we lit the log burner, for that added cosyness, Ruby & Elsie enjoyed sitting on the rug in front of it. We shall definitely stay at Happy Cottage again. Well done to Pippa and Derek for such a lovely cottage. 😊😊

    Stayed for 3 nights for romantic birthday getaway. Pippa and Derek have gone to great lengths to make Happy Cottage the perfect getaway and it shows. Everything was first class and we both loved it. The thatched roof and open fire were the highlights for us. If you want a quiet peaceful getaway in lovely surroundings with superb hosts look no further than happy cottage. oh and meet the dogs they wonderful. Many thanks we are already planning to book again for longer.
