The Porters Office forms part of the old Tavistock Railway Station and has been lovingly converted into a stylish two bedroom cottage, perched above the market town of Tavistock and with easy access to Dartmoor National Park.

Internally, the property retains many original features including wooden beamed ceilings and original fireplaces. Externally, the old platform has been restored retaining the original roof to form a quirky dining space.

The Railway Station originally dates back to 1890 and was built as part of the Plymouth Devonport and South Western Junction Railway. The station utilises its rugged surroundings and was constructed from materials sourced in nearby Dartmoor. The station finally closed its doors in 1968 and was converted into holiday cottages during 2007.

The market town of Tavistock has plenty going on all year round including a pannier market where the theme is ever changing, farmers markets (voted best in the West) and the famous Tavistock Goosey fair, held on the second Wednesday of October. The town is also home to a selection of cafes and restaurants offering dining options to suit all tastes and budgets.

Located a few miles to the east of Tavistock, Dartmoor National Park is easily accessible and offers scenic walks in breathtaking surroundings. The beauty of the unspoilt wilderness also makes the area popular with artists, photographers and bird watchers.

The Devon region

The warm climate and award-winning beaches enjoyed by South Devon have kept it a fashionable holiday resort for many generations. Torquay, Paignton and Brixham make up Torbay, one of the most popular areas for holidays in South Devon, and the area also includes the coastal towns of Dawlish, Teignmouth and Starcross. South Devon holiday cottages position their guests in some of the country's prettiest locations for a break with a continental feel.

Dartmoor National Park

South Devon hosts dozens of festivals and regattas throughout the whole year. One of the world's oldest shipwrecks was found off South Devon's coast. Pete Goss built his Team Phillips catamaran in Totnes.
