Bentley is a beautiful semi-detached house located in Dartmoor National Park and surrounded by breath-taking countryside. Built in 1906, Bentley was orginally built for a gin baron and received its name from the original purpose of the building as the chauffeur quarters semi-detached with the gardener's quarters.
Traditionally decorated with classical twists, the spacious rooms are comfortable and flooded with natural light. In the living room, a log burner makes for a cosy evening in after a long day exploring the moors and all they have to offer.
The property has 25 acres of land which runs down to the River Dart and straight on to the moors. There is wooded valleys with 400 hundred year old oak trees, a beautiful bluebell meadow in spring as well as private fishing. There is a front garden, a large meadow to the rear of the property with a patio furnished with table, chairs and barbeque and a large roof terrace accessed from the landing.
Bentley is nestled in the heart of Dartmoor's beautiful countryside which in any kind of weather supplies magnificent and picturesque surroundings.

Dartmoor is a place filled with mystery and intrigue, set in some truly breath-taking scenery. With a rich history boasting ancient abbeys, Iron Age hill forts and over 50 years of National Park status, Dartmoor is seen by many as the jewel in Devon's crown. A vast expanse of wild, untamed moorland with pretty, traditional villages scattered around the area, it makes for the perfect place to get away from it all.
With pubs, inns and restaurants dotted around the area, there are so many culinary options, and guided walks offer the ideal way to work off all the great local cuisine! With local attractions including numerous abbeys, stately homes and an interesting tour around an operational cider press (with samples included!) there is so much to do during your stay.
