This immaculate single storey cottage is in an incredible setting and sleeps up to two people in one bedroom.

Foxgloves is an immaculate, single storey cottage just a short walk from the River Tavy and Lopwell Dam. The breathtaking Lopwell Dam and nature reserve can be found on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park and the location is nothing short of idyllic - a haven for wildlife. The Bere Peninsula Cycle Route runs nearby, and the Tamar Discovery Trail begins at Lopwell, offering excellent walking and cycling in a stunning rural landscape.

The cottage shares with the friendly owners two acres of grounds, which were formerly part of Lord Roborough's 6000 acre estate. You are welcome to explore or simply enjoy the beautiful views from the private patio. Inside, Foxgloves is beautifully finished, and thoroughly well done - a perfect choice for that 'special occasion'.

The lounge is warm and spacious and the kitchen well equipped, though you may be tempted by the delicious lunches served at The Old Pump House cafe on the banks of the Tavy nearby.


Brilliant Foxgloves
Well named . Many foxgloves in this beautiful location. Idyllic spot , fully and expensively equipped and and maintained. Heather and Alan are a lovely couple. Totally recommended.

What a beautiful place
What a beautiful place, just a short walk down the hill to Lopwell Dam and a 5 minute drive to Dartmoor and it's ponys .Heather and Alan were great hosts ,they have a great place here at foxgloves, set in a wonderful garden of their own home with many different types of tree and shrubs all creating a year round peaceful setting where you can just chill out especially on the seat under the magnificent copper beech and take in the view down over the river tavy . Fifteen minutes drive and you are in Plymouth or the other way and you are in Tavistock with its Pannier Market and a lovely walk along by the river .Just a short drive and you are in Cornwall with its many harbours and attractions .Heather and Alan recommended a lovely pub in the nearby village of Peter tavey where we had a really nice meal from their well varied menu .We look forward to our next stay here .
