A 7 night stay in this wonderful house was not long enough! Applegarth is very well equipped, tastefully decorated and extremely spacious. Even with 12 adults there was room for everyone - we particularly liked the huge dining table. Great views too, the quaint church opposite and the hills beyond. The outside area was larger than expected and we were lucky enough to get some sunshine and take advantage of it! The house is in a great location both for exploring Dartmoor and the spectacular coastline. Christow village is charming and has a lovely traditional pub, The Artichoke Inn, where we were always given a warm welcome and a hearty meal - not to mention sampling the fine beers and wines! Would do it all again!
