Location description from owner

The England 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.

“Excellent short break”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Nook, it was well located and equipped with everything you could need for a short stay. The kind owners even posted back a bracelet that I forgetfully left behind!

“Absolutely perfect”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2014

We were really impressed by the Nook - it's a very small cottage but incredibly well laid-out; very cozy and comfortable. Well-situated right on the edge of Dartmoor. Great value for money!

“Perfect getaway, ideal location to explore the south west”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2014

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.”

Reviewed 26 Feb 2014

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.
