A traditional thatched,cob cottage in Petrockstowe, Devon, England - Peaceful, Location, 1 Mile From The Tarka Trail, 3 Miles From Sheepwash And 6 Miles From Rosemoor RHS gardens
An 18th Century thatched character cottage,whch was totally rebuilt 30 years ago. The Living room has exposed beams, inglenook fireplace (wood burner) and bread oven. A brand new kitchen is now fitted and our new extension is now complete which has added a separate,and very light, dining room to the cottage.
The stairs lead from the living room up to three bedrooms – a pretty double with en suite shower-room (suite), a small sn
igle bedroom and one with a double and a single bed. The second (main) bathroom is on the ground floor. A new paved outdoor sitting and dining area leads up from the small paved area outside the new dining room,giving fantastic views across the Torridge valley with Exmoor in the distance.
We now have a separate cabin,which is fully insulated and heated and has a single bed,plus exercise bike,and electric piano,so that if you feel the need to escape the rest of your group, you can!
Petrockstowe is a little far-from-beaten-track village (pub) in farmland a mile from the Tarka Trail. River Torridge (fishing), 2 miles; Fishleigh Estate (location of original ‘Springwatch’ series), 3 miles; Sheepwash (famous fishermen’s pub), 3; Hatherleigh (market town), 4; Rosemoor RHS Gardens 6, Dartmoor, 11; sea/beaches at Westward Ho! or Instow, about 15, or surfing at Bude, 20.
The village is very quiet and, as the cottage is next to the church,you will hear the clock chime. We have oil-fired central heating and the village ,and cottage is unique in this part of Devon as we have high-speed broadband. Our Smart TV has all the catch up services,plus Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Okehampton and Great Torrington have a range of shops and Hatherleigh,your nearest large village has a Co-op,and a very good butchers. There are geat walks/cycle rides on the Tarka Trail and our favourite seaside,with good surfing and cliff w,alks is at Bude ,40 minutes drive
Although we love dogs,I am sorry but we can`t accept them as guests as I am allergic to most dogs and all cats..We do have 2 bikes but they are very old and only suitable for short outings,but do feel free to use them

no nickname said... 15 May 2014 Happy Renters Cott Lane Monks Cottage, Petrockstowe, England, EX20 3HH, United Kingdom Date of Stay 3 May 2014 Helpful votes: 4/0 The cottage was all that we had hoped for; quaint and old (nostalgic of my childhood) yet warm, cosy and with all modern conveniences. We felt at home immediately. The neighbours went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Our celebration meal at the Laurels was delicious but we missed the warm open fire of the pub in Sheepwash. Petrockstowe was very central for day trips to (1) Cornish coast: Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac were wonderful. (2) Dartmoor and Dartmouth (3) Exeter (4) Walking the Tarka Trail. The cottage was very well equipped and we were able to entertain friends and family and cook up a big meal
