Five Star Plus! This cottage is everything described and more! Beautifully situated, sympathetically restored and equipped with luxuries you don’t expect from a holiday cottage.
We were greeted by the owner who made us feel welcome and ensured we were aware of all the treats the cottage had in store for us… from wet room, touch sensor lighting, underfloor heating, star ceiling (yes really) to the most efficient wood burner that seemed to light just by looking at it!
The high standard of the cottage doesn’t detract from its cosiness. Nestled on the edge of Dartmoor, easy to access and just remote enough to allow you to unwind and enjoy the tranquillity of the setting. As if the cottage didn’t have enough to offer, the owners also left some wonderful welcome gifts, unexpected and very much appreciated.
Owlacombe Bridge Cottage genuinely surpassed our expectations and will not disappoint.

Top notch! This is a stunning house, beautifully restored by the owners, who have an eye for detail and have thought of everything. Owlacombe Bridge Cottage is luxurious and comfortable at the same time, with beautfiul furnishings and an extremely well-equipped kitchen - you will want for nothing here. There are wonderful Dartmoor walks straight from the house or you can get in the car and go further afield. Sunday lunch at The Rock Inn, Haytor, was delicious. We will book again for next year as soon as we can.

Stunning, would highly recommend this property. It’s the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Thoughtful welcome pack, beautifully furnished, in a secluded but peaceful location.

This cottage is so delightfully situated among trees and wildlife, with the sounds of a brook across the quiet road. Owls hooting at night, the occasional bat, beautiful stars, daytime squirrels and birds, and the best occasional twilight visitor, a gorgeous red fox. He does have the beginnings of mange, though, but hopefully with treatment he'll continue to stop by. The cottage itself has everything anyone could possibly need for a relaxing, peaceful holiday, everything fitted out to such a high standard. The skylight in the first floor bedroom is so perfect for falling asleep while gazing at the stars, and you can do the same virtually on one of the ground floor bedrooms! It was fascinating to read the history of the cottage as well; I very much appreciated the book detailing the history and renovations. Such a wonderful place that I originally booked for just five nights and finished by staying for three weeks! I cannot wait to return to this lovely place!

Wow! This cottage has been restored to such a high standard - all very high-tech and luxurious - a wonderfully relaxing place to be. Fairly remote in terms of location and mostly without phone signal but that didn't bother us at all (the cottage does have internet connection however). There are plenty of things to do, places to walk the dog and places to eat within a short drive. A table tennis table in the separate garage was an added bonus which the children absolutely loved. The owners left some lovely goodies upon arrival which made us feel thoroughly spoilt too. Owlacombe Bridge Cottage is probably one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in. We were sad to leave frankly!
