Honeysuckle Cottage

Honeysuckle Cottage is a characterful self-catering holiday cottage, one separate part of a 16th Century Grade 2 listed Medieval Devon Hall House. Touching the edge of Dartmoor National Park and only a 15 minute stroll up to one of Devon’s most famous landmarks, the 1100ft high, 13th century Brentor Church, Monkstone makes the perfect holiday base for exploring Devon and Cornwall.

About Mrs Jeanette Emmett

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.

Mrs Jeanette Emmett purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Mrs Jeanette Emmett chose West Devon

We bought this house and grounds because we wanted to be on Dartmoor with space and views but also to be near to a town for shopping. We love it because there is total peace and quiet yet it is convenient for the town.

What makes this cottage unique

No other place in the area has such stunning views.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

A lovely warm welcome to Dartmoor. The cottage is small but has everything you need. It was warm and cosy and just right for a quiet break after a busy Christmas. Friendly and welcoming hosts. Highly recommended.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 stars review it was lovely to meet you. I am so glad you found so many interesting things to do in the area and want to come back to do even more. With Dartmoor on the doorstep and Tavistock, which was recently voted the best market town in England, only 5 minutes drive away a weekend is never long enough to see everything. We will look forward to seeing you again in the future.

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.
