Springfield Cottage, Devon, UK
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Find peace, relaxation and comfort and a touch of luxury in this beautiful, old Dartmoor cottage.
Springfield is a detached, cob property situated on the edge of Old Liverton, near Bovey Tracey, within Dartmoor National Park.
The original building probably dates from 1600s and there are deeds from 1800s with the age of the property producing its own character and charm. There are original beams and there is a wood burner in the lounge fireplace.
The garden has fruit trees, lawns, beautiful plants and flowers and a pond with plenty of fish trying to avoid the local herons.
Springfield is on the outskirts of the older part of Liverton, locally known as Old Liverton, and benefits from views looking up over the Dartmoor woodland and towards Haytor, which is just a few minutes drive away.
The location, being just 1 mile off the A38, means it benefits from being in some of Devon's most beautiful scenery whilst being accessible to major road networks to allow you to travel to all the other fabulous areas that the South West has to offer.
This area is particularly great for ramblers, walkers and cyclists and at the same time allows you to experience most other activities that you could want in a holiday including relaxation!

"A perfect Honeymoon!"
Well what can we say!.... Simply beautiful, we'll kept and a tranquil retreat with exceptional standards. It was better than a boutique hotel, the owners had a real eye for detail and it became our home and our Oasis. It's a must stay (and if you do, make use of the BBQ and dine at The Rock Inn).
The happy newly weds !

"Awesome cottage, lovely holiday."
This is a fantastic holiday cottage. It is charming, luxurious and is set in a perfect location on the edge of Dartmoor. The garden of the cottage is splendid – we enjoyed most mornings eating breakfast out on the patio soaking in the beautiful surroundings. It is close to local attractions and within easy access to the Devon's many quaint towns and lovely coastline. The owners Quentin and Tracey are incredibly friendly and attentive. Upon arrival we had a hamper of food and drink which was an amazing gesture. I recommend you stay at this cottage it is well worth a visit.

"Summer sun and smart living on the edge of Dartmoor"
I cannot recommend Springfield Cottage enough. We were looking for a break in the country near dartmoor but wanted to avoid the soulless, turgid rental you often find as holiday lets. For us 'home from home' comforts were a must, as was cleanliness and atmosphere. Springfield Cottage delivered.
The house is located in a old village of Livington, just on the edge of Dartmoor below Hay Tor. A perfect location, away from hustle and bustle but surprisingly convenient to get to, being just a few miles from the main A38 to Plymouth. The village is quiet and the period cottage is set in pretty gardens giving it an almost 'chocolate box' appearance. Perfect. The theme is carried on inside with great charm and character, however, there's nothing that's worn, old or tired in the cottage! Every piece of furniture, every fixture and fitting of the decor are spotless and of a very high quality. Inside, Springfield Cottage is six star quality.
We had a fantastic week. The cottage is in a great location, easy to get to and from anywhere and with plenty of parking, even space to keep our bikes. Of course, the sun shone as well which made it even better.
I wholeheartedly recommend Springfield Cottage. Its a real gem.

"Amazing cottage with beautiful garden"
A great place to stay on the edge of Dartmoor with easy access to Exeter, Plymouth, the coast and of course the moors.
The cottage itself is finished to a standard I can only wish my own house was! Everything was catered for and the owners couldn't do enough to make our stay brilliant.
The garden was in full bloom with fresh fruit on the trees and was a great spot for a late summer barbecue.
There was a secure outhouse where we could keep our mountain bikes and parking for two cars (although a tight spot to get the second car on to).
The house had fresh flowers in it when we arrived and the quality of the furnishings far exceed our expectations (very different to places we've stayed at in the lake district).
A great week and one we'd like to repeat again.
