The Bothy is an idilic place to relax, enjoy and explore all that Dartmoor offers. The Bothy is clean and practical if it rains the layout is suitable for towelling off a wet dog and placing wet clothes in the washing machine. The garden across the small road is lovely to spend time in as is the small courtyard garden. The bedrooms are comfortable with added bonus having an en-suite attached to both. The kitchen and lounge area is also cosy and comfortable. We weren’t blessed with good weather but managed to enjoy trips out dodging the rain...when we did stay in the surroundings of the Bothy made it bearable. We would like to thank Tim & Sarah for sharing this stunning place and for being near when needed but not overally attentive ... so it felt like home from home. This is our second stay and we will be returning next year! Trudy Surman-Roper & Nigel Roper

A beautiful, comfortable and well equipped cottage in a very peaceful location. Great base to explore the Dartmoor and South Devon.

This property is exactly as described and was a ideal place for us to stay to see Dartmoor. The owners were very helpful and everything met our expectations. We had our two Collie dogs with us and it was perfect for them as they could sleep in their beds in the entrance corridor without having to go into the main cottage. We could walk them very easily in the small paddock and woods literally about 4 yards from the entrance with a beautiful stream running through. There are, of course, many places to walk both us and the dogs all over Dartmoor! The cottage is warm and snug with a woodburner for the colder days (it was early April when we visited) and is extremely well fitted out throughout. The Kestor Inn is about a 3-4 minute walk and does a very good carvery on Sunday lunchtime plus good pub food at other times just check opening times in the off peak season. All in all we had an excellent break there and please pass our thanks to Tim and Sarah.

Lovely cottage in an excellent location - especially for walking! Great to be on the moors within a few minutes drive.
