This was our second stay at Higher Manor, and all was as perfect for us as last year. The space is just right for a couple with a dog, and the garden area allows for exercising without any risks. We had glorious weather for a week, and enjoyed walks on and around Dartmoor, as well as excellent meals at the Peter Tavy Inn and Elephant's Nest. A greaRead moret place to stay to explore west Dartmoor. Hide

We spent Christmas in this lovely modern, spotless property. Plenty to see and do locally...excellent if you are into cycling/walking and on the days where the weather was dreary we were more than happy to stay indoors as it was so cosy, warm and relaxing. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends. As we went in Winter with it getting dark earlyRead more, the village pub was a little too far to walk to comfortably - this wasn't a problem for us at all but something to bear in mind for others maybe.
