About the property

2 bedroom stone, mid terraced cottage with many original features

A mid terraced property with a fully enclosed garden. The terrace is built side on to the road and we are the second property in. Downstairs there is a well stocked kitchen with handmade units and a belfast sink as well as a dishwasher and washing machine. The lounge diner has a large stone fireplace with wood burner and window seat. There is a television and DVD player and free wifi. The floors are solid stone or wood, making it ideal for dogs. The downstairs ceiling is lower than a more modern property but an average person has no problem walking around without bumping their head!

The stairs lead to three rooms and a bathroom on the first floor. The main bedroom has a double bed, the second room has two single beds and the third can be used as a small playroom. There is room for a travel cot in the main bedroom, (not provided). The bathroom has an electric shower over the bath. Towels, (including beach towels), bed linen and tea towels are provided.

There is a small, sunny garden with garden furniture and a barbecue. There is ample parking outside on Bond Street. The cottage is in the village of Cornwood, which is inside the boundary of the National Park. From the village centre there are views of the Moor which is only 2 kilometres away, a pub and a small shop. Ivybridge is the nearest main town where you can find everything you need for a stay in this most beautiful part of the country.

About Lynnette & Tony

We are a family of five living near Bournemouth. Our roots are in Kent and London but we decided to move to the South West as it is a pretty part of the UK. We often spent our summer holidays on Dartmoor, and when an opportunity arose we decided to buy ourselves a property their for us to use.

Lynnette & Tony purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Lynnette & Tony chose Dartmoor

Cornwood is a very friendly, welcoming village ideally situated at the southern tip of Dartmoor. The cottage is attractive and homely and within walking distance of the moor itself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed our stay at your cottage, we used it as a base so we could do five days walking. You have a nice place with lovely neighbours. We could have had better weather but you can't book the weather



Once again thanks !!

Lovely quaint cottage clean tidy comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Very clean well cared for property with lots of character. Comfortable bed although a smallish double. Well stocked and equipped kitchen. Comfy sofa large telly and a lovely little garden.

Small down sides-log burner doesn't kick out much heat it all goes up the chimney. Not for tall people over 5'10 (hit head on ceiling twice!) and be careful on the cottage stairs.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We like to think that you only need to bring the minimum away as we know how packed a car can get with the whole family in it! To that end we have equipped it with everything we think might be used. We also encourage people to let us know if there is anything else they would like included.

Birthday long week end

  • 3 of 5

Getting family together in this cosy little cottage near Plymouth . Very nice place to stay, nice walks and places to go.

Watch out for speedy drives down narrow lanes though....

clean tidy and we'll maintained

  • 5 of 5

We used the cottage as a base while walking on dartmoor, the cottage was all that we could have wished for!!

Tony and Lynn were at the end of the phone should any problems occur but this was never used as all was perfect.

the neighbours were very friendly and helpful, if we ever decided to return we would try to get this property again

We used the local pub on the last day of our visit the landlady was very friendly

the village is for cautious drivers if visiting drive slowly the lanes are quite narrow but safe
