Heather Cottage situated at the very edge of the lovely Mid Devon town of Okehampton in central Devon is in a delightful and very convenient location, on the old tramway. It is part of a large Victorian house but totally independent having its own gateway entrance and parking area and Garden.
It boasts a large light and modern kitchen, a cosy sitting/dining room area with gas woodburner, large TV and CD player, music system, modern comfortable sofa. We are WiFi connected, so if you simply can't leave your work at home, you can connect from the cottage and garden!
Don't forget open use of ceder wood hot tub throughout your stay!
The Victorian style bedroom is large and luxurious with deep comfortable mattress.
Okehampton, itself, has all the usual amenities of general shopping but highlights such as three supermarkets including Waitrose, as well as independent grocers and butchers. The local Arts Gallery dedicated to local quality artworks (for which you are automatically given 10% discount on all items!), auction rooms, cinema, small museum, Okehampton castle, swimming pool/leisure centre, 2 separate golf courses, mountain bike courses in the woods, and the granite way cycle path that runs beside the working steam train line from the restored Okehampton station. The Youth hostel just moments away offer over 30 activities at a discounted rates for all Heather cottage visitors, not to mention the pubs, restaurants and cafes dotted about the town.
Heather cottage is surrounded by our large private gardens; in which is situated the cedar wood hot tub on a beautifully situated wooden terrace looking down over the town and its Victorian park. Two small stony rustic ponds create a Dartmoor stream ambiance of running water (that can in fact be turned on and off as you wish).
Heather cottage is actually on the old tramway, now a secluded leafy footpath that takes you directly to the moor from four different points. Adjacent to the tramway is the well known railway station (Tourist attraction only) with occasional seasonal steam trains and link to the granite way cycle path with its miles of off-road cycling.
Eastlake farm riding stables is close by from where you can ride across Dartmoor. As well as being within walking distance of the youth hostel which offer a whole host of outdoor activities such as archery and river gorging.
At Heather cottage you may feel like you are in the middle of the countryside but you are literally 8 minutes walk, through the beach tree covered paths above the town park to Okehampton centre. With the joys of feeling cut off from the world whilst still having access to all your everyday conveniences.
All in all, Heather cottage is perfectly designed and located for an easy comfortable and relaxing holiday.
