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.
Drewsteignton: exceptionally pretty village (licensed PO/shop, restaurant, church) on a ridge a mile from the most spectacular part of the river Teign valley (wooded river-bank and heathland walks). Marvellous scenery; fishing; extraordinary Castle Drogo (Nat. Trust); Chagford, 3 miles; the open moor, 6; Exeter, 14.

"Perfect location, Perfect cottage, Perfect holiday - what more can we say!"
This cottage was so comfortable we felt at home within minutes of walking through the front door. Every thing had been thought of... if you wanted it you found it right down to dog blankets! The location is absolutely perfect for visiting Dartmoor and of course our dog had the time of her life both at the cottage and walking miles and miles across the moors.
Thank you very much for your kind comments, I am so pleased that you and your canine companion enjoyed your holiday at Rookwood Cottage. I very much hope that we might see you again in the future.
