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 contemporary feel but still retaining plenty of character including beams. 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 (National Trust). 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.

Lovely cottage, we had a wonderful week. There are other cottages next door but there is very little light pollution at night and it’s peaceful surroundings. You will have to drive to amenities though.That didn’t bother us as we were out every day exploring Devon and the closer parts of Cornwall. Would book again in future

Little Nymett was perfect for our requirements. Ideally situated for accessing north and south coasts and Dartmoor. The cottage is chacterful yet contemporary and very well furnished and equipped. There was a very nice welcome pack of goodies on our arrival. The visits from the very friendly family cat were especially enjoyed!
