Live among the spectacular beauty of Dartmoor, with its roaming sheep, cattle and ponies. Private garden with patio and barbecue area, luxurious accommodation, close to the ancient market town of Tavistock and within an hour of the beach.
West Blackdown Cottage is a haven of peace and tranquillity, in a setting idea for walking and exploring Dartmoor. With no street lights to keep you awake and pollute the night sky, we are still within easy access of market town facilities, shops, galleries, and wonderful pubs/restaurants. We will be on hand to help you find feet, and have a great selection of maps and guide-books to help you plan your stay. The cottage is old but the guest accommodation offers high-quality, tasteful up-to-date facilities.
You will have your own private accommodation, with loads of parking outside the property, and a private garden for your enjoyment. There is storage space for bikes if required. There are some steps within the property and in the garden.
My husband Robin and I are usually around to offer help for our guests, and will always make sure that we can be contacted if we are off-site for a while.
Whilst our location does appear remote, the village does have a bus-service and we are within walking distance of a village shop/post office and some pubs.
West Blackdown Cottage is in a beautiful, quiet location, surrounded by wildlife, with livestock grazing just outside the front door. We simply ask our guests to follow the country code, close all gates to the property ( unless you want highland cattle in your garden ! ) and, of course, no smoking in the cottage.
