Lovely cottage, great location

  • 4 of 5

Very sweet cottage in lovely location with easy access to Dartmoor and the friendly village of Horrabridge. Almost perfect...more comfortable pillows would have made it get 5 stars.

A Quiet Lovely Retreat

  • 4 of 5

A great location with a helpful and friendly host. The cottage was clean and well equipped and fresh eggs from the hens a pleasant addition. Although the microwave was not working when I arrived this was replaced next day by Julie. I really enjoyed my stay as did my dogs. Direct access to Dartmoor meant that exercise for the dogs was immediately on hand. The only slight niggle was the extremely hard bed but managed to overcome this with the use of the additional duvets which I put under me.

Thanks Julie for a great break. I will revisit if I come to Dartmoor again.

Perfect weekend away

  • 5 of 5

I booked this lovely cottage as a surprise for my partner for our anniversary. A few days out of London with our dog was exactly what we needed. We arrived very late on the Friday night but everything was ready for us to just dump our stuff and climb into bed (in absolute darkness i may add - bliss!). We woke the next morning to lovely country stillness. The hosts were brilliant and brought us some fresh eggs their chickens had laid that morning and tomatoes off their vines, delicious. We spent the whole weekend relaxed and comfortable exploring the moors, using the masses of guide books / leaflets that were in the cottage and cuddling up watching TV in the evenings. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend away. Thank you Will and Julie for making our anniversary special. We will definitely be back i am sure.

Location

Special interest holidays:

On Dartmoor there is so much to do including; Walking, horse riding, climbing, cycling, canoeing, letterboxing (great fun) and Geocaching!

Distances:

Plymouth is the nearest city and is just 12 miles away and it has a real metroploitan buzz. Steeped in history and linked to SIr Francis Drake and the Pilgrim Fathers, it also has a great harbour and lots of things to do. Check out the superb marine aquarium, go ice skating, or visit Drakes Shopping Mall. The village of Horrabridge is a 5 minute walk down the hill. The nearest town of Tavistock is a 10 minute drive.

Further Details:

Staying at Monkswell you will be in easy reach (3.0 miles) of visiting the dramatic landscapes of Dartmoor used in Steven Spielburgs latest film The War Horse.

Monkswell is on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park so it is well placed to explore the 368 square miles of outstanding countryside.

There are some excellent pubs nearby that include; The London Inn & the Leaping Salmon. Just a short drive away there are more great pubs including The quaint Whitchurch inn, the Peter Tavy Inn, Elephants Nest and a number more on Dartmoor.

Lydford Gorge is one of Devon's gems...it's the deepest gorge in the whole of the south West, and it's surrounded by ancient woodland.

The river Lyd at this stretch is fast flowing, and the gorge features two "must see" attractions - the White Lady Waterfall and Devil's Cauldron.

Dartmoor is great for kids. In addition to everything else that you can see on this page, you can also go to Pony centres, Dartmoor zoo, Farms,

do a Dartmoor tresure trail

(after purchasing trail books), Donkey park, Dartmoor Prison museum, Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre and much more!

As well as seeing Dartmoor ponies across the moorland, you can also ride horses across many parts of Dartmoor. Cholwell Riding Stables at Mary Tavy is situated between Okehampton and Tavistock. Rides are available across Dartmoor, novice and experienced riders taken, qualified tuition, hard hats. Experienced escorts open all year.

On Dartmoor, there are a number of options for fishing that can include fly fishing and river fishing for Salmon, Trout Aand Sea Trout. You will need permits to fish and we do have contacts with guided fishing tours as well so there are quite a few options for keen anglers.
