    A great place to stay to explore Dartmoor and this part of Devon. This small studio place has everything you need. The owners are very helpful. You can explore right from the backdoor with walks along a peaceful river bank, along an old railway or across the moors. A great place to be based. Reliable WIFI.

    Everything I needed for a fabulous Christmas get away, including a Christmas tree! Lovely clean, modern, comfortable and cosy apartment. Great to be straight onto footpaths from the back gate and easy links to Tavistock and the rest of Dartmoor. Able to be independent but not completely isolated. Owners very accommodating and friendly. A great base to which I would have no hesitation in returning.

    This was our first experience of self-catering and we found it it very much to our liking. We would certainly return again in the future and most certainly recommend Magpie's Rest

    Perfect little apartment for a couple visiting Dartmore, Tavistock and the surrounding area. Easy access to walking and cycling trail. Apartment was sparkling clean, very comfortable bed, good shower, excellent kitchen and equipment. Devon scones, jam & cream were a lovely touch. Warm welcome from Nick. While we did not take our dog, pets are welcome. We will definitely return.

    Central position for visiting the Plymouth corner of Dartmoor, lots of National Trust properties to visit with good walks around. The Frame trail 27 is out of the back gate. Friendly owners who care about their guests 10 out of 10

    The owners were really friendly and helpful and the flat, though small, was very clean and had everything we needed. It is ideally placed for visiting Dartmoor and Plymouth and also the north and south Devon coasts. The only slightly negative thing was the road outside which was very busy and with the windows open could be quite noisy. This didn't affect our enjoyment though, we had a really great time and would happily return.

    Lovely apartment with everything we needed. Really nicely done out with a great shower, comfy bed and very clean. And a welcome cream tea and bottle of wine. In a great location with direct acces onto the Drakes Trail and a good local pub. Very nice owners.
