Perfect family getway
We have just come back from a weekend away with friends at this property. What an absolute gem. We had 2 children and our friends had 1. Its perfect for all the family, with 4 good sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Tastefully decorated with the added bonus of a log burner. The kitchen has everything you need and the owners even put some milk in the fridge and some scones with cream and jam! Yummy! It's in a great location to explore Dartmoor but very close to Tavistock. Highly recommend and we will definitely be booking this place again.

Wonderful cottage, location and host
This is a real gem of a cottage. The location was perfect - on a farm smallholding (with chickens and ducks for our daughter to feed outside each morning). It's only a mile or so outside Tavistock with all its amenities but feels a world away - it's right at the end of a country lane so no passing traffic (the road is tarmac and in good condition right up to the farm entrance, only the final 100m or so is unsurfaced but still no problem for our car). The hosts provide annotated maps showing recommended local walks - it's only a minute or two from the farmstead to the open moorland from where you can walk down to the beautiful rivers Tavy and Walkham below. We were also able to ride our bikes from the cottage via a couple of country lanes direct onto the excellent Drake's Trail all the way to Plymouth. The cottage itself also surpassed our expectations. The kitchen, lounge area, bathrooms and bedrooms were all attractive and well equipped. There's a shed at the back where bikes can be stored and there's also a games outhouse and very big trampoline. The hosts were also great. Both before, during and after our stay Jacqui answered all our calls / messages very promptly and helpfully. She was also there to welcome us on arrival (from a suitable social distance), and the cream tea that was there to welcome us was very, very good. All in all, a great, great week away - a real tonic in a time of Covid. Thanks Jacqui!

Home from home
Had a wonderful week. Very peaceful. The house is well equipped for a family of 8. Even the rain didn?t spoil it.

The great outdoors
Had a fabulous long weekend in the heart of the Devon moors. The barn overlooks the river valley and there are some fabulous walks without the need to get in the car. Tavistock and Plymouth are in easy reach. The accommodation is first class and the cosy warmth of the woodburner was very welcome after a bracing walk. The hosts could not be more friendly and nothing seems too much trouble! We shall definitely be returning as the moors will be even more stunning in the springtime.

Wonderful Stay in Beautiful Accommodation & Surroundings
Have stayed here on many occasions for weekend breaks. The location is set with wonderful views over the countryside. The accommodation is very spacious and homely with very comfortable beds and furniture. The large living and dining areas provide plenty of room for everyone to spend time together. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need & everything is extremely clean. The owners go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful comfortable stay. If you are looking for clean, spacious comfortable accommodation in a beautiful location, then this is the place. Highly recommended!
