This spacious cottage has cosy underfloor heating throughout. Its secluded location offers peace, quiet and privacy with expansive views of the Devon countryside. Okehampton offers a choice of supermarkets, independent shops and fresh local produce. Antique hunters will enjoy browsing the antique shops, and vegans and vegetarians may want to investigate the local vegan café which is dog friendly. In Sampford Courtenay itself is a gorgeous thatched pub with a Michelin chef booking recommended. Known as the gateway to Dartmoor, there are plenty of hiking opportunities from Okehampton, including the highest hill in the UK south of the Brecon Beacons. Bikes can be hired locally for the Granite Way, and if guests bring their own bikes, they can explore The Tarka Trail and some cross Dartmoor opportunities for more serious cyclists. For a traditional picnic lunch stop at the Cheese Factory or the Cider Farm nearby. Worth a visit is the Museum of Dartmoor Life, Okehampton Castle & Finch Foundry. The ancient town of Tavistock has a large indoor market and the A30 provides easy access into Cornwall for day trips to the coast, the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Llanhydrock House.

We were impressed with the quality of the property, its fixtures and appliances. It was also spotlessly clean. Nicky was on hand and available for any queries. We also found the location ideal for walks nearby - Belstone was a great place to get onto the moor and a couple of minutes by car.

Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean with everything you could want for a perfect holiday. Nicky even went to the trouble of putting in a bottle of wine, homemade cake and flowers for our arrival, plus 4 dishes for water and feed, plus treats for the dogs. Wont place to stay in a great area. We thoroughly recommend.
