I''m glad I found it after trolling through many websites and hundreds of places

By Mrs Battson on 30-Oct-2022

If Dartmoor is the area you want to stay in you could not pick a better place but at Walkham or even Dittisham, you will enjoy staying in either property, hidden away down little country lanes a sloping driveway takes you to a ''shall I call it a little hamlet'' or a collection of four properties.

Fantastic stay

By Mrs Awbery-Maskell on 21-Oct-2022

We had a fantastic stay at Walkham, the property exceeded expectations. The owners were very friendly and on hand if we needed anything. A perfect location for a restful break, would highly recommend.

A warm, cosy and beautiful cottage.

By Ms Dunne on 10-Oct-2022

Welcomed with lots of lovely welcome treats - croissants, jam, slippers etc. A warm, cosy and beautiful cottage offering pure solitude & luxury. Set in a lovely wooded area with surrounding fields and easy walk up to the outstanding moors and tors. We were frequently accompanied by Tess the owners dog who we were sad to say bye bye too. Owners lovely & friendly and left us in peace to enjoy the peace, but there if we needed then. Family came to stay in the other two cottages which were equally outstanding. The best! I’m sure we will all be back.
