Situated within 40 beautiful acres, the property is a warm, traditional, detached converted stone barn, offering luxury, peace, tranquillity and stunning views all around. The property is the sole holiday home on the estate, so you don't have to share the lovely gardens and grounds with anybody else!

There are many great features for everybody. Relax and unwind by the Willsworthy Brook in the secluded guest gardens or enjoy some lovely walks and picnics around the grounds. There is your own stretch of the splendid River Tavy to enjoy (with single bank fishing rights). You can even take a dip in our rock pool, the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer’s day or why not try your hand at Clay Pigeon shooting, which is available onsite. In the evening you can take in the stunning views of Dartmoor and gorgeous sunsets from the courtyard seating area.

The estate also has a stable yard and an infamous Shetland Pony named Jerry, who is perfect for younger guests to pat and groom. Alternatively, you can explore the moors on horse back as there is a horse and pony trekking centre just ten minutes drive away. If horses aren't your thing, why not take an Alpaca for a walk at Lydford Gorge Alpacas.

Nearby is the award winning market town of Tavistock with its famous pannier market and plethora of shops, pubs and restaurants. The beaches on the south coast of Devon and Cornwall are easily reached. Nearby attractions include National Trust properties such as Lydford Gorge and Castle Drogo or visit Becky Falls and historic Plymouth, with its Hoe, Barbican and National Marine Aquarium.

All of the cottage accommodation is located on the first floor, except for the twin bedroom which is located on the ground floor. The great benefit of this arrangement is that each and every room has a wonderful countryside view. Luxury bedding, soaps and fluffy towels are provided, as is free unlimited Wi-Fi.

A perfect stay

By Nisha C on 03-Aug-2021

I would thoroughly recommend a stay at this stunning cottage where you get an experience rather than just a place to stay. The cottage is on 40 acres of ground which has paddocks and a river that you can swim in. Close to the cottage are stables where you can go and pet the horses and a peaceful lake. You could never leave the grounds and have a very fulfilling and restful stay. Mike and Sofia were on hand to answer any questions and they gave us a great tour of the land. Sofia makes the best lemon drizzle cake I've ever had and we got to eat eggs laid by the hens nestled near to the cottage. If this all sounds very idyllic, it's because it is! The view from the courtyard as we ate dinner was like no other. The cottage is in a great part of the world with easy access to the main sights of Devon and only a stones throw away from Cornwall. We can't wait to come back.

Wonderful Cottage in the countryside

By Christopher B on 18-Jul-2021

Fantastic cottage with the main living area and two bedrooms on the first floor, a further bedroom on the ground floor. The private guest garden was amazing and the only noise is from the birds and the trickle of Willsworthy Brook at the bottom of the garden. There is also access to other areas of the owner's estate including a plunge pool on the river Tavy, a duck pond and lots of areas to sit and admire the views across Dartmoor. A fabulous place to stay along with a very friendly and helpful owner.

Lovely place and location

By Mike R on 22-May-2021

Set on the edge of Dartmoor this peaceful place was exactly what we needed. Spotlessly clean and warm it was a great base for walks to the pub and beyond. Homemade cake was delicious and the guided tour of the extensive grounds was amazing. The hosts were lovely the animals friendly and the location fantastic whatever the weather.
