The cottage is in the heart of the beautiful Dartmoor village of Dunsford, and is ideal for year round holidays. A gate from the pavement leads into the walled, paved courtyard garden, ideal for outdoor dining.

Upstream from Steps Bridge, the scenery is spectacular with Castle Drogo (National Trust) crowning the gorge above the renowned beauty spot of Fingle Bridge. To the west of Dunsford the road climbs up through woods to Moretonhampstead, 15 minutes, a small Dartmoor town and the open moor. Here there are several restaurants, shops and a small supermarket. Needless to say, the whole area is a walker’s and rider’s paradise. The village itself clusters around the ancient church of St. Mary, and in 2010 won the award for ’Best Kept Village’ in Devon. Dunsford has kept its village shop and Post Office and has a pub and a beautiful walled garden restaurant, where diners can sample tasty day-time meals and pre-book for an evening meal when customers may bring their own wine. The village garage still sells petrol! Lying off the Exeter to Moretonhampstead road, there is little through traffic allowing walkers and horse riders to enjoy the calm of high hedged Devon lanes. Guests will usually be able to park directly outside Lillian’s Cottage, but occasionally a few yards either up or down the road.
