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.
On Dartmoor, there are plenty of walks for all ages and abilities to enjoy this stunning and dramatic area as well as some pretty villages with pubs and tea rooms. Towards the coast there are many fine beaches and coves including Saunton, Woolacombe and Westward Ho! A trip to Lundy Island can be arranged from Bideford pier. There are numerous places of interest close by including the R.H.S. gardens at Rosemoor, Dartington Crystal and the historic fishing village at Clovelly. Visit the last castle to be built in England at Castle Drogo (NT). There is golf at Okehampton and Ashbury, or you can hire a bike and cycle the Tarka Trail at Great Torrington. Shop and pub 1½ miles, restaurant 6 miles.

    This is without doubt the nicest cottage we have stayed in, immaculately presented, warm welcome with lovely hamper including Devon cream tea, milk, bread etc. Super king size bed with the very best quality bed linen, lovely big bathroom and well equipped kitchen. The owners have thought of everything with superb attention to detail.

    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

    What a fantastic place to stay, Happy Cottage was so clean, cosy and luxurious. Perfect base for touring Devon. Coming back to a log fire after walking on Dartmoor was very welcome. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at Happy Cottage.

    All excellent, apart from the winter surcharge for fuel should be included in the normal booking tariff.

    This is our second stay at Happy Cottage and we loved it just as much as the first. The cottage is extremely well equipped and spotless. It's so cosy and relaxing as it's set in a quiet location. It's home from home, just what we needed and always want to stay for longer.
