Description from owner


Great Burrow Cottage (Sunday Times "50 Coolest Cottages in Britain and Ireland") is a detached former Linhay found in the heart of undulating West Devon countryside, in the grounds of Grade II listed Great Burrow Farmhouse. It has stunning uninterrupted views of Dartmoor. French doors lead to a private patio and large tranquil gardens with wildlife ponds, free-range chickens, a beautiful cob and stone barn, ancient oak trees and sweeping views of Dartmoor's wild northern tors. The breathtaking North Cornwall coast is only 30mins away ( surfing, Bude sea-pool, miles of sandy beaches). A heat exchange system provides constant hot water with underfloor heating that keeps the cottage really cosy and a woodburner too for that added snug feel. The contemporary bathroom has a slate floor and large bath with a deluge shower above. There are great walks directly from the cottage taking in streams, forests and valleys. Enjoy a camp fire round the firepit, as the sun sets on Yes Tor; laze in the hammock under the tall willows. There are table tennis and darts in the adjacent barn, or in the cottage large flatscreen TV with DVD, Freeview, Wifi, books and binoculars! We are pet friendly.

Getting around

There are limited buses so a car is really the best way to get around or walking the bridal paths from the cottage. We can always give advice on where to go and you can message us anytime for top tips on pubs, walks etc. WE are dog friendly with two spaniels of our own and can help with dog- friendly beaches etc

Interaction with guest

We are next door if you need anything but the cottage is very private and secluded. We are happy to give advice on places to eat, walk and play! In the cottage is a folder of fun things to do which we are always adding to with the help of our guests.
