East Underdown Cottages
Nestled in the middle of rolling Devon countryside and on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, East Underdown is the perfect place for a family holiday or a quiet romantic getaway. The three cottages were converted from 17c barns. Walkers enjoy a choice of trails within minutes of the cottages. For families, there is much to do within a short drive. While we enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside, we are three miles from the A30 and very accessible to the rest of the South West. All guests have unlimited access (8a-10p) to our indoor, heated pool with current machine and sauna. There is a fenced, green play space for children, and even big kids enjoy our games room with a snooker table, darts, table tennis, table football. The cottages have their own private patios with picnic tables and barbecues.
Great Cleave (4 bedrooms) sleeps 8

Great location for exploring the area and relaxing. The facilities are exceptional
We stayed in other cottages in the UK and have to say this is the best. We would recommend it to anyone that is not handicapped. Amenities far exceed others. Great area for relaxing and exploring the area. The owner is exceptional.
Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting
We had a great stay, and our daughter loved the pool. Beautiful place to stay.
Comfy, cozy and clean as a whistle! A1
Four of us spent a family reunion week in the Little Cleave cottage in Royal style.
We couldn't have asked for more. Our cottage was spacious, well appointed, warm and home-like; the adjoining patio was pretty and private, a perfect spot to use the BBQ and enjoy the outdoors.
Although the setting was very quiet and idyllic, access was good and the local pub in a village 5 minutes drive from the property served excellent fare at very reasonable prices in a fine old world atmosphere.
It was a pleasure to make the acquaintance of our welcoming hostess and we would love an opportunity to share her little piece of paradise again.
Beautiful cottage, perfect location.
The cottage was exactly what we were looking for; beautiful and cosy, dog friendly, easy to find, and a short distance from the moors. We loved it, and would definitely stay here again.
4 night stay during February Half Term at East Underdown Cottages in Drewsteignton, Devon
Lovely cottage and owners who can't do enough for you. The cottage was very well appointed and cosy with a lovely wood burning stove. Small kitchen that worked fabulously well as it was well designed. The cottage felt very homely. One important bit is that the furniture was really comfortable, i.e. beds and sofas. It sounds silly, but this is important, especially if you suffer from a bad back, like I do. In the past we have stayed in places where you get up in the morning and are in agony as the quality of mattresses, beds is so poor.
Great little pool and little sauna. It was lovely to have a games room, too. Location is in very easy reach from Exeter, Oakhampton and it is not far to the coast, plus there are numerous walks and National Trust places very close by. Excellent little holiday. Thank you!
Activity and Interests
Dartmoor National Park is one of the last wilderness areas of Britain -- moorland landscape, wild ponies, ancient settlements -- great walks. Also easy access to Exmoor, and either the rugged seascapes of North Devon and Cornwall or the milder Channel shores of South Devon. 3 miles from Chagford (old town known for its shopping and nearby walks), 10 from Exeter, 8 from Okehampton. We are within 10 miles of three 18 hole golf courses including Bovey Castle. Only an hour from the Eden Project. Children love the Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhampstead (5 miles) and the House of Marbles at Bovey Tracey (12 miles). Five minutes from the last castle built in England -- Castle Drogo. 13 miles from Exeter and Exeter University.
On a typical day at East Underdown you could talk a short walk up the road to the ancient stones of Spinster's Rock, lunch at one of the many local pubs, relax with a swim and sauna before cuddling up by the wood burner (or hanging out on the private patio).
