About the Owner

We have been at Monkstone for 20 years and we love it. It's great for walking and we take our little terrier dog Millie on to Dartmoor everyday with longer walks every weekend to coastal footpaths. Brentor is a lovely little village and nearby Tavistock town a great place to shop. It has everything we need and is a really friendly market town with a famous indoor Pannier Market and lots of individual shops many selling the local food products. We converted Monkstone Cottage from a barn to a cottage about 10 years ago and enjoyed making it comfortable and luxurious for holiday guests. The views are wonderful overlooking Dartmoor from all directions. We are nearby and always happy to help with your holiday.

Honeysuckle Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, cosy little cottage with large private garden, perfect for wildlife watching. Thanks to our equally lovely hosts Roger and Jeanette for a very welcome Cream Tea after a long journey and the offer of help/advice should we need it. Local attractions - Monkstone Cottages are on the doorstep of Brentor (St Michael's) - a 15 minute walk and spectacular panoramic views; Lydford Gorge (even more spectacular); Widgery Tor (great walk & option of lagoon for a swim) at Lydford. Eating out - would recommend The Warren Inn, highest pub on Dartmoor. Good food, friendly service, very interesting history. Would definately recommend & hope to return to Honeysuckle Cottage.

Lovely cottage just as described

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a couple of nights over the Bank Holiday weekend. As mentioned in other reviews there was a cream tea and milk awaiting us whihc is a lovely touch. The cottage is ideal for investigating the Tavistock area of Dartmoor.

Perfect country cottage on Dartmoor.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Honeysuckle Cottage over a long weekend in April. The location is superb being quite remote but within easy reach of facilities. The cottage itself was ideal for the two of us and dog. Clean, comfortable, warm and with everything you need, we will certainly make a return visit and recommend to others. Owners are very friendly and welcoming.

Stunning location

  • 4 of 5

Very cosy, clean and comfortable. The cottage was well equipped and had everything we needed. The bathroom is very compact. The owner was away during our visit but left easy instructions and a cream tea. The cottage is in a great location for exploring both coasts and other local attractions.

Gorgeous, luxury cottage with fantastic attention to detail and

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a long weekend and we're very pleasantly surprised! The cottage is very small and intimate (we stayed at Honeysuckle), and perfect for a short break for two or a week holiday. There was great attention to detail- we were greeted with a cream team, and fresh milk, flowers,tea and other little touches that made everything wonderful! The fire was already laid ready to light, and the owner gave us a great over view of the local area an ld some ideas for our stay. We definitely would return and hope to visit again as soon as possible!
