A187 - The Wesley
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
in the heart of Tavistock, on a quiet road moments from the centre, are five splendid apartments recently converted from a chapel. We let two. The conversion has been done to a very high finish and the apartments are wonderfully light, hugely spacious and very comfortable. A trouble-free, relaxing and thoroughly modern place to stay in this interesting and thriving town. The Wesley: stairs from communal hall to small lobby. Smartly fitted kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob/electric oven, granite worktops and granite-topped breakfast table seating 6. Along the hall, huge living/dining room with beautiful original stained glass windows, vaulted ceiling adding to the sense of space and light, comfortable seating, TV, MP3 player and dining table seating up to 10. Also on this level, two bedrooms – a double and a room with two singles, both with original stained glass windows, and smart bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). Stairs up from the hall to huge mezzanine bedroom (fully glass-screened) with a 5' double plus two single beds under the eaves and en suite shower-room (suite) with partly sloping ceiling. Outside, and a bit of a trek up steep steps, is a small piece of garden with great views over Tavistock towards Dartmoor.

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.
Tavistock: fine ancient town on the river Tavy on the edge of Dartmoor, evolving around an abbey founded in 974, and Sir Francis Drake's home town. Lots of interesting shops, pannier/farmers' markets, pubs, restaurants, wharfside theatre (also films/live music), leisure centre. Golf, 1½ miles; horse riding and cycling routes within a few miles. Nat. Trust places (Cotehele, Buckland Abbey, Lydford Gorge, Saltram House) nearby. Plymouth, 9 miles.
