Huckworthy is a charming cottage set in the beautiful Dartmoor countryside. The cottage is so well equipped with everything needed for a perfect stay and the owners (who are lovely) are very helpful being nearby but it also feels extremely private. The local pub was open again which was fantastic and it all felt very "normal" given we were there on the first weekend that Covid restrictions relaxed. Can't recommend this cottage highly enough.

Another lovely stay at Huckworthy. The hosts are truly lovely people who go out of their way to ensure you have the best time. Thanks to them!

January 2020

Only met the owners briefly, but they were very friendly and welcoming - It really is a lovely cottage, we had a fab few days away! Finished to a high standard, extremely clean and all the little touches made it a special stay. Cannot fault! Thankyou so much!

Ps- The roads to the location are quite small and bumpy, luckily I live in the country side so am used to it, but if you're used to city life, i can imagine it to be a little stressful!

We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed a few days away in this idyllic retreat. We do appreciate that, if not used to them, the beautiful little Dartmoor lanes may seem a little rugged but undoubtedly add to the charm of the area. Alison, Customer Support

Lovely break over New Year. Cottage very comfortable and well equipped. Beautiful walks straight from cottage. The goodies awaiting us on arrival were very much appreciated, really nice touch. I would definitely consider staying here again.

September 2019

Beautifully finished barn conversion with access to plenty of walks in Dartmoor direct from the property.

Lovely setting and well equipped warm little cottage. However the approach to the cottage is by VERY narrow roads and these are not suitable for larger vehicles. Damage from the overhanging hedgerow is Unavoidable and We scratched our car several times and also had to reverse for approx half a mile down a one track windy road to give way to tractors etc on more than one occasion. This should be mentioned as it can affect your enjoyment and stay and it may have meant we either took a smaller car or decided against it. Would have been perfect if not for this issue and it will unfortunately stop us from returning I’m afraid. If this is not an issue for you then the cottages all look lovely and are well decorated and kept and are in a remote quiet setting off the beaten track.

Thank you for your review of Huckworthy - we're pleased that you found the property to be nicely decorated and well equipped. We do appreciate that some of our properties are located a little off the beaten track and the narrow country lanes can be a little daunting if you are not used to them. We have updated our property description to state that the approach lane is narrow. Alison, Customer Support

Beautiful location. Extremely well furnished cottage. Luke and Masha plus Tess were so accommodating. We had a great time walking out from the cottage.

May 2019

Don't tell anyone else about the cottage as it will get too booked and we want to stay again.

A beautifully finished and superbly equipped cottage in a gorgeous location. Ideal for walks from the door step and exploring the West Devon area. We loved our week here and already planning a return visit.

April 2019

I think everything has already been said about this property and we concur with all the comments, its simply fabulous and the location is idyllic, another Classic Cottage we will be only too thrilled to return to.

December 2018

A lovely getaway cottage to stay in.

Try the walk to Princetown, great when the weather is good!!

November 2018

Huckworthy lived up to our expectations. It was very tastefully decorated, modern, clean, and warm (it was November outside!) Finishing touches on our arrival were welcoming, flowers, croissants, wine and fruit. Overall a comfortable stay, a mile or so to nearest pub and post office, and Tavistock only 4 miles away. Owners very pleasant and didn’t disturb us, but we knew they were close by if we needed anything. A wonderful break.

October 2018

We had a lovely stay at Huckworthy. The position of the cottage means you could walk on to Dartmoor every day and see new places. We loved how cosy it was with the fire and underfloor heating and enjoyed our evenings in watching tv and eating local cheese and chutneys that we picked up from Tavistock. It’s an amazing place that is the perfect size for two people. Thank you for a brilliant holiday.

October 2018

A fantastic stay, very modern and well maintained property. Very friendly owners and awesome location.

September 2018

A beautifully presented cottage in an ideal location for Dartmoor and other places of interest. Welcoming host. Would highly recommend.

August 2018

If you want a relaxed comfortable stay... Look no further!

February 2018

We had a perfect long weekend at Huckworthy - the cottage is very well presented and spotless, and also very well equipped. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and would love to return soon.

January 2018

Luxury accommodation in beautiful surroundings Owners very helpful 5 stars all round

November 2017

Overall, an excellent cottage experience for us. Huckworthy is very well situated within Dartmoor - all of the main attractions are within a 30 minute drive. The cottage itself is warm, comfortable, modern, well equipped and a great place to totally relax.

September 2017

It is the best cottage we have been in and we found Luke and Masha very friendly and helpful. Luke helped me when I had a blow out and not only helped me change the wheel but also gave me clear directions of the local ATS garage. We would definetely go back and Luke did show us the other cottages in case more family wanted to come. We went out in the day and usually relaxed and cooked local food in the evening. Although my holiday seems long gone I will have warm memories of this one for a long time to come. Thank You

September 2017

Luke and Masha were the nicest hosts and made us feel very welcome. Their attention to detail was most impressive, with lovely touches to greet us on our arrival; flowers in every room, a lovely bottle of wine and a tasty selection of cheeses and milk. We would highly recommend!

September 2017

Charming, modern and spotless

September 2017

Possibly one of the best cottages we have stayed in. Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. Very high spec. Lovely touches on arrival at the cottage of wine, fruit, cheese, milk, home made bread and flowers. Quiet location and plenty of places to visit not too far away. Supermarkets within 10 minute drive.

August 2017

It exceeded our expectations. Everything was first class! The cottage is beautiful, the owner couple was lovely and helpful, all the animals were lovely, the place is an oasis for stressed-out urbanites.

July 2017

This is a beautiful high spec property - it was like staying in a 5 star hotel! a fantastic location especially if you are planning a walking holiday - great walks on your doorstep and so peaceful. I highly recommend it.

February 2017

Huckworthy cottage was a beautiful hideaway, we spent most of our time relaxing in the cottage. What was a brilliant surprise is that the local supermarket is only 15 minutes away and the owner also have a book stocked full of recommended local shops. The cottage held the heat really well there wasn't a single time we got cold. We also did a bit of stargazing and you won't be disappointed it was amazing. I can't recommend this place enough, it's a perfect for a retreat to the countryside.

December 2016

Huckworthy has been elegantly and efficiently equipped to a first class standard which makes a stay in this unblemished location both relaxing and memorable.

October 2016

It is a lovely modern cottage in a beautiful location just inside Dartmoor National Park. Long walks right from your front door and close to Tavistock and Yelverton. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering so we ate in every night! Would highly recommend to a couple looking for a small romantic hideaway.

October 2016

This is a lovely hideaway, tucked into the valley with easy access to walking and cycling on Dartmoor. The rooms are immaculate and we received a great welcome.

September 2016

On arrival Luke & Masha were there to greet us and explain the set up,and after a long drive it was a lovely to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and put our feet up and relax in what is a beautifully thought out country cottage " Top Marks"

June 2016

A lovely little cottage set in woodland perfect for any couple who enjoys tranquility. Encompasses an exceptionally clean, modern setting within the surrounding countryside. Very thoughtful owners whom provided their own produce, fresh fruit and bread, wine and flowers upon arrival. They were also very private, but accessible if need be, respecting us but also being friendly. Additionally, a folder containing local restaurants, takeaways, walks etc was provided upon arrival helping us organise our stay. Also, a fantastic internet connection for somewhere so remote. Highly recommended!
