With accommodation on two floors the annexe (attached to the owners home) has a private entrance and hallway, a bright open plan lounge-diner-kitchen upstairs, with oak floor, vaulted ceiling and beams. Downstairs there is a bedroom with oak floor and super-king bed, and a separate wet room. The annexe has it's own parking space & is centrally heated. The owners utility room and colourful garden are available for use together with patio table & chairs. All bed linen & towels are provided. The property would provide spacious and comfortable accommodation for 2 adults but there is room for a cot or small extra bed in the bedroom and there is a double futon in the living room. You will receive a warm welcome on arrival at Wisteria Cottage including a cream tea with clotted cream from the nearby farm. Scorriton lies in a walkers paradise surround,ed by the stunning scenery of Dartmoor National Park, a beautiful place in all seasons.
I retired in October 2013 & moved here from Portsmouth with my husband for a complete change of lifestyle.
Maggie Mayes purchased this cottage in 2013
Having had some great holidays in Devon we decided that this was the place to come for retirement & we moved here in October 2013. The cottage is in the perfect place for us, nestled in the Dartmoor countryside, in a small friendly village, with amazing views and walks all around yet within easy reach of the coast, shopping, theatres etc.
We are keen walkers & love the peace, tranquillity and beauty of Dartmoor in all seasons. We have been here over a year now and can tell where to find the best walks & places to eat. We can definitely recommend the Tradesmans Arms in the village where you will find a warm welcome & very good food. The pub & the village hall frequently hold events such as jazz bands and quiz nights & the farm provides milk & clotted cream.
I stayed for four weeks at Wisteria Cottage as I was studying on a Cookery course at nearby Ashburton. The cottage was within easy commuting distance from Ashburton and I passed Buckfast Abbey every day on my commute- how cool is that?
The cottage was perfect for me. It was warm, cosy, well equipped and a peaceful haven after a hectic day's cooking. The village is picturesque and very well placed on the edge of the moors. I went walking in the evenings and at weekends and visited the welcoming pub on a few occasions.
The owners Dave and Maggie were the perfect hosts. They were welcoming and always there if I needed them but respectful of my privacy. They even ate my food! Dylan the dog deserves special mention for doggy friendliness.
Ashburton is a wonderful foodie town and I enjoyed visiting Totnes and Buckfastleigh when not cooking.
I can highly recommend the cottage and I am tempted to come back- this time for a proper holiday!
A lovely little clean cottage, a warm welcome and afternoon tea on arrival
Lovely area for walking or cycling and lots of places to visit by car
Some of the roads are a bit narrow but are pass able
Maggie and Dave are a very pleasant couple, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, but if you prefer privacy they're happy to leave you to yourself.
The cottage is situated in a lovely peaceful spot with moors around, great pub (foodwise, we're not drinkers) and a small dairy farm (the kind where cows actually graze in the meadows) next door. There are some wonderful walks starting right from the doorstep, what more can you wish for?
We stayed for a week with three young kids and it was spacious enough for all of us.
Overall we enjoyed our holiday immensely and would thoroughly recommend both the owners and the property.
Wow. What a fantastic week we had over New Year at Wisteria Cottage in Scorriton. Completely spotless cottage, two exceptionally helpful owners in Maggie and Dave, always happy to give local area advice and brilliant walking route suggestions. We were even met with a tasty cream tea on arrival!
The bed was superbly comfortable, the shower powerful and hot and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook a nice dinner.
Don't expect to get great mobile reception, although there is a great wi-fi to connect to and we actually enjoyed being able to escape to the beautiful surroundings and not be constantly glued to our phones!
A brilliant place to go and re-charge your batteries, we had horrible weather so weren't able to get out walking much, but there were plenty of brilliant indoor attractions nearby - we had great fun on the South Devon railway and at the Butterfly and Otter Sanctuary! And plus the rain added to the cosiness of the cottage for quiet nights in.
Very much hoping to come back in the summer and experience much more of the beautiful surroundings in some better weather, but for now, we had a brilliant stay at Wisteria Cottage and are gutted to now be back at work!
Many thanks to Maggie and Dave,

Photos don't tell the whole truth. We were disappointed to find that the cottage sits on a rough track with a row of terraced houses immediately opposite. Front view was of a Wheelie Bin and storage shed. Large bedroom, super bed but upstairs rather cramped. We'd be concerned for anyone who sat on a chair at the top of the stairs - definitely a safety issue. The owners were charming and very helpful and coped kindly with our dogs. We had everything we could need and it was very clean. We had a good meal at The Tradesman's Arms. The staff were friendly and allowed our dogs to sit under the table. I would suggest the cottage is suitable for 2 adults and is a good base for walks and visits to many places of interest.
We couldn't have found a better place to spend a holiday with our dog. Maggie and Dave are so welcoming, discete and helpful. The lovely cottage offers all the comfort one may expect. We loved the peace and quiet of Scorriton, blessed with a fine pub providing excellent meals. But above all, we enjoyed the numerous walks in a breathtaking environment. What a wonderful week it was.
