Description

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. The regional town of Okehampton is close by and is considered the gateway to Dartmoor National Park. The town also provides a good range of shops and amenities.

    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. 😊😊

    Fantastic break in a beautiful house. It really is a peaceful break that was perfect to take the dog to. The house was extremely clean and offers all modern conveniences. We have already recommended the accommodation to our friends who have been looking for a cottage break with their dog
