Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
1½ miles from Brentor, an 'away from it all' detached bungalow with terrific huge sky open views (no one else in sight) across meadows to the Lyd Valley and Dartmoor. It is double glazed and insulated and surrounded by its own garden with a 6 acre field at the back (sheep in late autumn/early spring) with deer and unusual birds (red kites, black pheasants, yellowhammers) around. Large, raised covered patio with big picnic table/benches and great views (sunsets, starlit nights), barbecue, a little hedge-sheltered suntrap area with bench, lawn with children's swings and, in an annexe, a games room (table football, darts, toys/games), and bicycles (at your risk).
Inside, very comfortable, cosy and attractive. Four steps up to front door. Living room with huge window with time-wasting views, open fire, TV/DVD; dining room; kitchen (dishwasher, combi-microwave, oil-fired Rayburn, larder fridge) with table/chairs and step down to lobby (for coats/boots) and utility room with back-up electric cooker, Belfast sink, washing machine, tumble drier, freezer, and shower-room (wet-room suite, shower seat). Three bedrooms – a double (5' bed), a twin, and a single with pull-out truckle bed. Small bathroom (bath plus bath-shower, washbasin); separate loo. Spring water. Best for maximum of 5 adults or 4 adults, 2 children. A great value getaway.

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.
Brentor: hamlet (ancient cottages, church) on the western side of Dartmoor. Its even older church clings precariously to the summit of a massive volcanic outcrop with probably the finest views in Devon; Iron Age earthworks defend the site. Lydford, 3 miles.
