The owners, Jill and Dave (Duffy) were very welcoming and friendly when we first arrived and helped us with local information. Lovely area, cottage comfortable and well equipped. Would definitely recommend.
MRS KENNEDY September 2022
The cottage is gorgeous. Very cosy and clean, with just about everything needed provided. It also had a lovely private garden with plenty of seating to enjoy the nicer weather. It was a bonus to be able to do some lovely walks direct from the cottage.
Mrs Foster September 2022
Beam Ends is a very comfortable cottage. Well presented with everything you could need. Owners are very friendly, offering advice on places to visit and condolences on the weather ! Easy access for walks on Dartmoor and not too far from coastal towns. Several good pubs nearby, including the Rock Inn a few doors down which is lovely for a special treat. Would highly recommend.

Lovely to hear that you had a good holiday exploring Dartmoor despite the weather being a little less than ideal! Having support and local advice from the owners must make for an enjoyable visit to the area. Thank you for the brilliant review, so useful for anyone planning their visit in the future. Sarah R.

Mrs Gaskell August 2022
Beam Ends is an old Dartmoor cottage with an interesting history. Lovely quiet location close to Haytor and surrounding moorland. Homely, comfortable and well equipped. The shady patio area proved its worth during the heatwave and owners also allow access to their own extensive garden. Owners, Jill and Duffy, were extremely welcoming and keen to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. They were on hand to give advice on local amenities if needed. Delicious home made cake and a bottle of cold lemonade ready for our arrival. A wonderful and relaxing holiday.
Mr Mitchinson July 2022
This was just an amazing place to stay, quiet, friendly and set in a fantastic location.
Ms Kelly May 2022
Don't take a big car! The cottage is in a pretty village but the lanes leading to it are extremely narrow... you get used to it though. The pub nearby (The Rock Inn) was excellent with award winning dining and Hay Tor itself was within walking distance. It's a lovely place to be. Heartily recommended.
Mr Mullard September 2021
This was an extremely comfortable cottage and we were made very welcome by the owners, who were very helpful and friendly and keen to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect.
Miss Truman August 2021
As above: Jill and Duffy were lovely hosts and went out of their way to make sure the holiday was special, especially for our little boys. The garden was like a wonderland for them to explore and being so near to magical Haytor Rocks was fantastic.
Mrs Robinson July 2021
The property was fabulous lovely owners next door who could not be any more accommodating. Beautiful view great pub close by could not fault this holiday cottage.
Mr Fear June 2021
Everything was absolutely fine - Jill and David were the perfect hosts and gave us the run of their garden but allowed us to get on with out holiday. well equipped, comfortable and very convenient for numerous walks and visits on Dartmoor. Also has the benefit of an excellent Inn just yards away.
Mr Harvey June 2021
Very friendly owners, cottage clean and lovely comfy bed. Situated in a peaceful village with good walks and pub nearby.
Ms Cowan May 2021
We have had a great break, and the accommodation was first class. Jill made our stay very enjoyable - there was even a cake waiting for us, and dog treats! We couldn't have asked for a better property or host. The cottage is perfectly located - great walks are on its doorstep, and there's a pub close by too.
Mrs Walker May 2021
Beam Ends is cosy and quaint but with good heating, shower and kitchen so an ideal base camp in the changeable weather. Nice to have friendly, helpful landlady next door keen to make out stay as comfortable as possible. Incredible location just a 10 min walk from Haytor and local pub 50m away. Can highly recommend and make sure you also visit Ullacombe Farm Shop and Cafe (0.7 miles away) as the food and cake is superb.
Mr Walker April 2021
Lovely cottage, great location in south east Dartmoor just a few hundred yards from the moors. Highly recommended!
Mrs Cripps August 2020
This was a lovely cosy cottage and Jill and Duffy were friendly and helpful hosts. The location is lovely, in a sheltered valley just off the moor with good connections to amenities.
Mrs Barringer-Capp September 2019
I would highly recommend Beam Ends as the ideal cottage to stay in for a wonderful, relaxing holiday and the perfect location to explore Dartmoor and the surrounding area.
Mrs Turner September 2019
We would stay again without any hesitation. A lovely cottage in a great location and delightful owner.
Prof van Elferen July 2019
Beam Ends was the best cottage we've stayed in bar none. It is very clean, comfortable and cosy, and, as it is situated right by Haytor, a fantastic starting point for Dartmoor walks. The cottage is located on a quiet road (we slept so well here!) and has amazing views. We enjoyed the cottage's well-tended garden and the house plants inside. There is a very good pub on the road and other great pubs in the vicinity. The owners were super welcoming and had left us a cream tea in the fridge as well as doggy treats for our little border terrier Trixie which was such a lovely touch. I can't recommend Beam Ends highly enough!
Mr Lugthart May 2019
This is a lovely, atmospheric, house, on a great spot, with lovely owners. Jill and David were helpful when needed. Walking nearby is great. In the village is no shop, but we went to Ullacombe Farm, nearby, for organic bread, dairy, etc. The beds were good, and its great to have a nice bath. The sitting room is quite small, with the entrance door, but you can sit with 4 on the 2 sofa's. The space with the eating table is nice, with lots of light through the big skylight. Cream tea was there for a start, and a big vase with roses in our bedroom. Wonderful! Lots of love from Lex, Mirjam, Maria and Joeri.

Really lovely property which was in excellent order and perfectly laid out. Great little bolt hole for a family of 4 in a great location. Jill and Duffy were also really helpful and there if we needed anything. We had a fabulous week! The Davis’s (Oxfordshire)
Mr Arnold June 2018
The house and the place is a dream. You feel like in a myth
Mrs Norman May 2018
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Well equipped and very comfortable. Will be returning soon with our dog to explore more of Dartmoor.
Mrs Earp May 2018
Love this cottage and area, can't wait to go back. Mr & Mrs Morrish's hospitality is outstanding.
Mrs Chapman September 2017
This is a great place to stay for a holiday. Close enough to Bovey Tracey for shopping and we tried the little community shop in Ilsington which would be great in an emergency. Walking distance to the Moor and reasonable drive to the coast, National Trust properties. The cottage has a useful utility room for boots and raincoats which we certainly needed as it rained, if only for a short time every day we were there.
Mrs Best August 2017
The cottage is situated in an amazing place. Beam Ends is a cosy, comfortable cottage which is ideal for walkers, the scenery is breathtaking. Haytor Vale is a quiet, tranquil place that we will visit again.
Mrs Earp May 2017
A wonderful spacious cottage, child and dog friendly, lovely village. Very friendly hosts who couldn't have been more accommodating. All-in-all a wonderful time had by all. Even the weather!

Mrs Allison June 2016
Lovely cottage in a beautiful but very convenient spot for visiting all parts of the moor or simply walking and with great hosts. A very good holiday away from the hustle & bustle.
Mrs Gagnier May 2016
Beam Ends was everything we hoped for in a Devonian cottage. Just the right combination of traditional charm with modern day comfort. The location was superb, close to the moors but also towns and the sea.
Mrs Collins September 2015
What a great cottage. We had a wonderful week, helped by wonderful weather! Beam Ends was spotlessly clean, with very good bed linen and towels and well equipped kitchen. It was a pleasure to return to the cottage every day and the owners live next door and their relaxed and friendly style shows in Beam Ends. Highly recommended.
Mr West August 2015
Very comfortable and cozy cottage
Mr Blunn August 2015
Rooms were a good size. Lovely patio area and access to the garden and the valley. All appliances were in very good condition and easy to use. Lovely to have flowers and plants in the rooms. Parking was right outside. Set in a super area to explore. Village was very quiet and peaceful.We were given a very friendly welcome by Jill and David. The cottage was very comfortable and had a lovely feel to it. We all slept well and felt comfortable spending time there in poor weather. I would recommend it to others. Thank you.
Mr Coffey August 2015
It was a fantastic cottage and a brilliant location. Quiet in the Dartmoor countryside with dark skies and fresh air Perfectly relaxing. Such lovely hosts too. Helpful and friendly without being over obtrusive. Always there for you - why they even left us with a cream tea and a bottle of Prosecco to start with - and popped round with a beer on the terrace on a warm summer evening. What more could you ask for! It is a wonderful cottage. We will be back!
Mrs Holland May 2015
This is a great little cottage. Perfect for our family with two young children. Wonderful location, friendly owners, clean,comfortable house full of nice touches. We had a lovely holiday and hope to return...
Mrs Townley August 2014
Lovely cosy cottage, very helpful owners and very quiet and peaceful. Secluded but within easy reach of plenty to do.
Ms Rolston August 2014
We loved this cottage.
Mr Leach April 2014
Duffy & Gill are wonderful owners and make friendly, un-intrusive neighbours. The cottage is perfect for long walks across very interesting areas of Dartmoor. The village is sweet and the shop just 5 minutes by car. The Rock Inn does excellent meals although it can work out to be more expensive than you might initially think. Fabulous area, great holiday, lovely cottage. We want to come back! Another classic holiday from Classic Cottages. Thank you.
Dr Schmidt August 2013
We enjoyed the week in Beam Ends. The well restored house with all necessary modern facilities and friendly owners was for us a very good place to explore the wonderful surronding of Hayter and Dartmoor! We can recommend this place!
