In North Bovey, a very pretty, 17th cent., Grade II listed, semi-detached, thatched cottage on the Dartmoor Way. Step down from the porch and you can follow the lane until it becomes a track and then stepping stones across the river Bovey and beyond. More walkers and horse riders pass than vehicles. To one side of the cottage, accessed across neighbour's drive entrance, is a long, narrow, secluded wooded garden with paved area (table/chairs) looking across Easdon Down and surrounding hills.

Door into living room with huge granite inglenook (woodburner), ancient beams, cosy window seat looking down the valley, TV/DVD and kitchen area (slimline dishwasher, microwave); to one side of the inglenook, a narrow doorway (5'10' lintel) with 2 steps down into little dining room with glazed door to front of cottage. Steepish half-turn stairs up to two bedrooms ' a double (5' bed), and one with two single beds (limited clothes-hanging space). Smart bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). Outhouse with washing machine, tumble drier. A smashing get-away-from-it-all cottage in an enchanting village; only 100 yards to the good food pub.

The Devon 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.

North Bovey

North Bovey: postcard-pretty village (good food pub, medieval church) with tree-shaded green in the beautiful wooded valley of the mini river Bovey, two lane-miles from the spectacular open moor around Manaton or Moretonhampstead. Bovey Castle (hotel, good restaurant, golf), about 2 miles.
