"An idyllic haven set in the most wonderful surroundings"

As avid walkers, we wanted to find a base to explore Dartmoor. We stumbled across Tilley's Cottage, of which now we are so grateful! Set in the most hospitable village of Moretonhampstead, with its friendly pubs, quality of food and general amenities, it offers top class accommodation, and really does feel like a 'home from home'. The owners are keen to ensure that your stay is a pleasant one and have gone to great lengths to document local features, restaurants, places of interest, etc. - but also, are only a phone call away should you need them. We have enjoyed Tilley's Cottage so much that we have recently booked our third stay!

"Beautiful, cosy and well kitted out cottage in the heart of Dartmoor"

My family and I (5 adults plus 2 little dachschunds) thoroughly enjoyed a week's stay in this beautiful cottage set in charming Moretonhampstead.
It really did feel like a home from home. The kitchen had all the mod cons, the house comfortably accommodated 5 of us and we loved the log fire in the evenings.
The location was also a huge positive with a fantastic butchers just next door and the post office and co-op across the road plus plenty of lovely little pubs and a yummy tea room serving the best scones ever!
The parking situation was fine as we found residential parking just up the road but there is also a car park which charges a couple of quid for the day if it's busy in peak season.
We found Tilley's cottage was a perfect base to go and explore beautiful Dartmoor with it's tors, cute villages and pubs as well as being within easy reach of Exeter and Tavistock if the weather isn't so great.
We really enjoyed our break at Tilley's and will certainly intend on going back there if we ever venture across to Devon again.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about the property etc.
