Description

Enjoy many family attractions and activities from this spacious Devon longhouse which exudes period charm.

This 300-year-old, granite, thatched Devon longhouse lies detached in a timeless hamlet in the Dartmoor National Park, 3 miles from Moretonhampstead, surrounded by ancient woodland and rolling hills. To the front is a large, south-facing lawned garden with table and chairs - a wonderful place for stargazing at night - enclosed by a sturdy stone wall displaying long-unused bee boles. The property has many original features and a wood-burning stove, but has also been updated for today’s lifestyle; it is spacious and is in an ideal location for families and friends to get together for a holiday or a celebration. Moretonhampstead is a friendly, busy, ‘gateway-to-Dartmoor’ village with shops, good food pubs, church and an outdoor swimming pool; heath-topped and surrounded by hills, it has good walks locally and has reservoir/river fishing close by. Its fascinating history goes back over 1000 years to Saxon times. In addition to having many of its own attractions, it is the ideal base to explore some of Britain’s most spectacular and beautiful countryside including moorland and the coast. For the active, Moretonhampstead boasts what many find to be a surprising range of sporting facilities and the great expanse of Dartmoor presents any rambler with unlimited options. No part of the National Park is more than a one hour’s drive away and most of the well-known beauty spots are considerably less. For those with other interests, there is the historic naval city of Plymouth, Devon’s Roman capital; Exeter with its magnificent cathedral; the many famous coastal resorts including Torbay, and the serene countryside of North Devon - all accessible within an hour. Set alongside the River Teign on the western edge of Dartmoor, Dunsford Nature Reserve offers wildlife and scenery so rich and varied that you will want to visit many times, and in every season. Admire the large areas of oak woodland glades, bracken-covered valley slopes, exposed rocky outcrops and the River Teign, which supports an abundance of wildlife from butterfly to bluebells, fallow deer to pied flycatchers. Golf at Bovey Castle is 2 miles, the popular Miniature Pony Centre is 2½ miles, Chagford is 5 miles and Exeter, 13 miles, Whatever the time of year, Moretonhampstead has something to offer! Shop 3½ miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Improvement points first - There are no shops nearby but that was ok for us as we knew about the location before hand. But maybe an issue for others if they are looking for a shop or pub ect within walking distance. There were afew damp patches and the kids playroom smelt of damp but am sure the time of year contributed and with a good airing this would be ok. Everything else - Lovely cottage. Lovely garden and setting. The room we slept it (top room) was comfy with a fab bath. The cottage was spacious and cosy. Great coms with the owner before hand. My only wish was that we could have vacated the cottage later than 1000 the day of leaving as felt abit rushed in the morning making the cost of stay alittle pricey. Lunch time would have been nicer enabling us to eat breakfast and relax into leaving. I would stay again easily. Honest review from an honest person.
