2 miles from the centre of Lydford (½ mile from gorge/tea room, 1¾ from pub), with direct access to the open moor for walking/horseriding, two stylish, semi-detached, 'upside down' cottages cleverly converted from a barn within an original farmstead (no farming now), alongside the owner's farmhouse.

The cottages are extremely smart and comfortable, furnished with flair throughout to include many interesting and unusual artefacts, fabrics and pictures from the owner's world travels. Original high beams retained. Polished oak floors (rugs) in living areas and bedrooms and polished granite tiles in all bath/shower-rooms; stairgates. Each cottage has its own small enclosed lawned area at the front (picnic table) and views from upstairs over the former farmyard to moorland beyond. Stabling for two horses available (good riding country). Stylish and comfy, lovely moorland location. Great for two family parties to share (interconnecting doors if required).

Batavia (arrowed): at entrance level, generous open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer) with smart cream Shaker units, granite worktops, TV/DVD and big picture window (moorland view). Steepish stairs down to two double bedrooms looking to Dartmoor – one with 6' bed, and the other with 5' brass bed and en suite shower-room (suite, power-shower). Bathroom (suite plus bath-power-shower).

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

Lydford: village (two good food pubs, church) on Dartmoor's western edge, famous for its gorge/waterfall (Nat. Trust, very beautiful walk deep in woods). Trout fishing in the Lyd; riding stables locally. Sea/beaches, about 25 miles, north or south coasts. Roadford Lake, 9 miles. Tavistock, 5. Brentor's tor-top church, 3.

"Peaceful retreat and fully equipped cottage"

Batavia was a lovely cottage, clean, well appointed, friendly welcome from family dogs and very comfortable 6ft bed. Location could not have been better. Great for cycling, walking and horseriding. … More
