***Introductory rates***

A cosy retreat on the edge of Dartmoor, within reach of the sea with an open plan living, kitchen, dining area with mezzanine bedroom and downstairs shower room.

There is also a small enclosed garden a short walk from the apartment for use by guests. This is a lovely little spot for relaxing with a glass of wine or enjoying a barbecue in the sunshine.

The Nook is the prefect base for walking, climbing, golf (on the Wrangaton Golf course next door), equestrian activities, lounging on the beach or visiting local attractions in Dartmoor, Plymouth, Totnes or the English Riviera.

The Nook is part of a unique development in a former Victorian hospital building. It is a cosy bolt hole for exploring the beautiful Devonshire countryside. The moor can be directly accessed on foot from the village and a short walk will lead you up onto the moor for spectacular views across the South Hams to the sea in one direction and Dartmoor in the other.

The West Country region

Dartmoor can be accessed directly from Moorhaven. Dartmoor is great for walking, climbing, riding and geocaching. The top of the Ugborough Beacon can be reached in less than an hour by most. From the top you can look North over Dartmoor and in the other direction, across the South Hams to the sea. It is possible to walk across to the Western Beacon from here and explore quarries and evidence of the mining common in the area in years gone by. Alternatively there is a parking area 5 minutes from The Nook that can be used as a base for picnicking on the Western Beacon.

?For those of you who enjoy a stroll and ice-cream on the beach, Bigbury-on-Sea and Burgh Island are just 12 miles away. Burgh Island can be walked to over a sand bank causeway at low tide. A hydraulic sea tractor that will drive you across for £2 if you mistime the tides. The island is home to The Pilchard Inn, a pub that has been serving fishermen and locals for over 700 years and the Burgh Island Hotel, a striking art deco building that was once made a home from home by Agatha Christe and Noel Coward to name just two of its notable guests.

The English Riviera is also a short drive away. On the way stop off in Dartington home to Dartington Crystal, Dartington Cider Press and Dartington Hall, a National Trust property. Next you will pass through Totnes, where you can visit a castle as well as numerous quirky shops and cafés including Totnes Cats Café where you can stroke a cat whilst enjoying tea and cake. If you have any time remaining you will reach Torquay and Paignton. There is plenty for the kids here, with Paignton Zoo, The Living Coasts museum, Bygones museum, Kent's Cavern to name a few of the attractions.


Ivybridge is just over a mile away. A picturesque village straddling the Erm. Take a walk along the banks of the river or enjoy a coffee over looking it. There are regular markets championing local produce and crafts, a leisure centre, library and a number of pubs and take aways.

South Brent is a few miles in the opposite direction and there are a couple of nice pubs, cafés and shops.

Cheston Farm Equestrian Centre is 1 1/2 miles away. Holiday livery is available, as are riding lessons.

Wrangaton Golf Course is 5 minutes away for keen golfers.

"A very good location"

Very clean, peaceful and cosy flat, we spent 2 days there and would be happy to return during an other trip. Perfect location for tourists to walk on Dartmoor park or to discover by car South Devon.… More

"Perfect getaway, ideal location to explore the south west"

The Nook was a lovely place to stay, nestled near Dartmoor but close enough to major towns and just off the dual carriageway! The owners were lovely and accommodating, and they really have thought of everything. The accommodation is nicely decorated and very comfortable! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud! It is an ideal location to visit many attractions around the Southwest, Dartmoor Zoo is a particular favourite! Would definitely recommend to family and friends! Will be back :)

"A beautiful retreat inside and out."

My husband and I stayed at The Nook with our two children (5 and 9). It was suprisingly comfortable with 4 people there, and we had the most wonderful week. The Nook is clean, comfortable and cosy, the owners are friendly and helpful and the surroundings are so very quirky and beautiful.
We spent our time exploring Dartmoor, taking the Torpoint ferry over to Cornwall and spending time in Plymouth. There was so much to do and we had the most marvellous week.

The Nook is perfect as a base for walkers and day trippers or as a cosy hide away from the typical UK weather.
