Polished oak floors (rugs) in living areas and bedrooms and polished granite tiles in all bath/shower-rooms; stairgates. Each cottage has its own small enclosed lawned area at the front (picnic table). Stabling for two horses available (good riding country). Unfenced lakes on route to moors (caution small children). Stylish and comfy, a lovely moorland location.

Dartmoor: "the last great wilderness in Southern England". Great rock-tors top many of its often heather-covered hills. Marvellous for walking, riding, tor-climbing, picnicking, kite-flying, pony-trekking and, if you’re at all energetic, not seeing other people. Just off its edge, amid woods, valleys and farmed hills, are many pretty villages (sometimes thatched) and very lively small towns. All is protected from caravans, tents and most ugliness by being in the Dartmoor National Park.

The half of the moor north of the B3212 is the highest and wildest; no villages within it, almost no cultivation. The southern half has the most spectacular tors, best wooded river valleys, a few villages (like Widecombe, Buckland) in green-field ‘oases’. The moor’s eastern edge is the softest, most wooded, most popular: Chagford, Moretonhampstead, Lustleigh and Bovey Tracey are among its best villages, and the river Teign is an exceptionally beautiful river valley. The Dart(s) – two of them rise in the moor’s middle and join at Dartmeet – is/are equally beautiful all the way to the sea at Dartmouth. Very lovely, too, are the valleys of the rivers Avon, Erme, Walkham and Tavy; Tavy Cleave, on the latter, is the western moor’s most dramatic place. The quality of a pub can change so quickly we hesitate to recommend, but there are plenty of them; and of places to ride or pony-trek.

Lydford: village (two good food pubs, farm shop, church) on Dartmoors western edge, famous for its gorge/waterfall (Nat. Trust, very beautiful walk deep in woods) and ruined medieval castle. Granite Way cycle trail; trout fishing in the Lyd; riding stables locally. Sea/beaches, about 25 miles, north or south coasts. Roadford Lake, 9 miles. Tavistock, 5. Brentors tor-top church, 3.
