Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
An excellent cottage a mile from Cornwood, in the grounds of a beautiful estate which is yours to enjoy: 120 acres including woodland (opportunities for den building and adventures), the Piall River (brook fishing) and formal gardens (formerly Nat. Gardens Trust) with many unusual trees, hornbeam hedges, azaleas, rhododendrons; large pond (unfenced); tennis court. Own private, enclosed courtyard (barbecue, garden furniture) with views to Rook Tor and Penn Moor beyond. Very well converted from a shippen, the cottage is attached to an 18th cent. stable block. Mainly pine furniture with good quality and colourful fabrics, lots of pictures; homely and very comfortable. Porch; large, beamed living/dining/fitted kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas cooker – well away from the living area) with woodburner (logs included), TV/DVD/video, long pine dining table and Welsh dresser. Upstairs (stairgates), three bedrooms – the master double (5' bed, ceiling to apex), a twin, and a children's twin room, lined with material from an Egyptian tent with canopy over the beds and exciting play area (VDU/DVD). Bathroom (suite plus bath-power-shower and hand-shower) and shower-room (suite). Spring water. WiFi available in owners' house. Riding stables within walking distance. A very welcoming place.

The West Country region
Dartmoor: "the last great wilderness in Southern England". Great rock-tors top many of its often heather-covered hills. Marvellous for walking, riding, tor-climbing, picnicking, kite-flying, pony-trekking and, if you're at all energetic, not seeing other people. Just off its edge, amid woods, valleys and farmed hills, are many pretty villages (sometimes thatched) and very lively small towns. All is protected from caravans, tents and most ugliness by being in the Dartmoor National Park.
The half of the moor north of the B3212 is the highest and wildest; no villages within it, almost no cultivation. The southern half has the most spectacular tors, best wooded river valleys, a few villages (like Widecombe, Buckland) in green-field 'oases'. The moor's eastern edge is the softest, most wooded, most popular: Chagford, Moretonhampstead, Lustleigh and Bovey Tracey are among its best villages, and the river Teign is an exceptionally beautiful river valley. The Dart(s) – two of them rise in the moor's middle and join at Dartmeet – is/are equally beautiful all the way to the sea at Dartmouth. Very lovely, too, are the valleys of the rivers Avon, Erme, Walkham and Tavy; Tavy Cleave, on the latter, is the western moor's most dramatic place. The quality of a pub can change so quickly we hesitate to recommend, but there are plenty of them; and of places to ride or pony-trek.
Cornwood: village (pub, shop, church) on the sheltered southern South Hams edge of Dartmoor. Many prehistoric hut circles on the open moor above, around the beautiful river Yealm. Ivybridge, 3 miles. Plymouth and the sea at Mothecombe (unspoilt, sandy beach) or Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers (yachts, very pretty), all about 8 miles.
