About 2½ miles from North Bovey, the last ¼ mile via tarmacked drive, a south-facing detached cottage beautifully converted from a barn in front of the owners' farmhouse (no other houses nearby). The cottage and its sitting-out area (tables/chairs) immediately to the front have wonderful long views over gentle rolling moorland and meadows - a wildlife haven (marsh fritillaries during May and June). Camp fire available from late July to October and you can camp out under the stars. Thirty-two acres of farmland to wander (stock permitting). Inside, modern and well finished with beams, natural colours, good fabrics - no chintz here. The accommodation is over three levels. Entrance via lower ground floor to lobby; utility room (washing machine, sink). Generous-sized bedroom (6' zip-linked double or twin) with free-standing bath in window recess with uninterrupted views to Easdon Tor; shower-room (suite). On the middle floor, large contemporary open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer) with, at one end, woodburner, welcoming sofas, TV/DVD and large glazed door to outside. Small cloakroom with loo (washbasin). Steep ladder stairs to another large double bedroom (6' zip-linked bed or twin) on the third floor under the eaves with glazed end wall overlooking the living area; pretty en suite shower-room (suite). Use of owners' tumble drier.Spring water. A beautiful and original conversion in a wonderfully tranquil, timeless spot.

The West Country region

Dartmoor: "the last great wilderness in Southern England". Great rock-tors top many of its often heather-covered hills. Marvellous for walking, riding, tor-climbing, picnicking, kite-flying, pony-trekking and, if you're at all energetic, not seeing other people. Just off its edge, amid woods, valleys and farmed hills, are many pretty villages (sometimes thatched) and very lively small towns. All is protected from caravans, tents and most ugliness by being in the Dartmoor National Park.

The half of the moor north of the B3212 is the highest and wildest; no villages within it, almost no cultivation. The southern half has the most spectacular tors, best wooded river valleys, a few villages (like Widecombe, Buckland) in green-field 'oases'. The moor's eastern edge is the softest, most wooded, most popular: Chagford, Moretonhampstead, Lustleigh and Bovey Tracey are among its best villages, and the river Teign is an exceptionally beautiful river valley. The Dart(s) – two of them rise in the moor's middle and join at Dartmeet – is/are equally beautiful all the way to the sea at Dartmouth. Very lovely, too, are the valleys of the rivers Avon, Erme, Walkham and Tavy; Tavy Cleave, on the latter, is the western moor's most dramatic place. The quality of a pub can change so quickly we hesitate to recommend, but there are plenty of them; and of places to ride or pony-trek.

Dartmoor

North Bovey: postcard-pretty village (good food pub, medieval church) with tree-shaded green in the beautiful wooded valley of the mini river Bovey, two lane-miles from the spectacular open moor around Manaton or Moretonhampstead. Bovey Castle (hotel, good restaurant, golf), about 2 miles.
