Description from owner


The quirky cottage was originally the Ticketing Hall within Tavistock Railway Station. It has been restored and transformed into a 5 Star Gold (Visit Britain 2011/2012) holiday cottage for four people.

We are situated in the perfect location from which to enjoy beautiful views over Dartmoor and Tavistock, the market town is just a short stroll away. Facilities include Wi-Fi, Sky TV, I-pod docking station and ample parking.

The cottage accommodates four people within a double room and a twin bedroom with en suite. The family bathroom features a luxurious cast iron double ended bath. The cottage also has its own section of the original platform, with the Victorian decorated ironwork and beautiful canopy, under which a BBQ can be enjoyed.

The beautiful Victorian tiled entrance porch sets the scene for the rest of the house, which has retained a feel of the old station. The lounge is a showcase for the wonderful original fireplace, vaulted ceilings and a twisting staircase which leads to the two bedrooms.

This cottage is ideal for a family holiday, a break with friends or those seeking a retreat within an authentic and unusual Victorian listed building.

PROUD WINNERS OF VISIT BRITAIN GOLD AWARD 2011/2012 and Bronze Green Business Tourism Award.

The decadent Refreshment Hall (sleeps 6) and the elegant Porter's Office (sleeps 4 + 1) are also available for self catering holidays or short breaks.
