Taking its name from the nearby bridge over the Walkham river, Huckworthy is a truly idyllic couple's retreat. Granite steps lead you up to the front door and private garden area, with views down the valley.
Designed for two, Huckworthy offers a light and spacious open plan living-room with a large comfy sofa and wood-burner. The fully equipped and stylish kitchen with adjacent dining-area has all you need for long lazy lunches and romantic suppers. Two steps lead you down to the bedroom with a king-size bed, and there's a step up to the sparkling and contemporary bathroom with a bath and a separate rainfall shower.
Down a quiet narrow lane edged with ancient stone walls and lichen-covered trees, Walkham Valley Cottages offer a really lovely retreat. The Owners, who run a smallholding from the main farmhouse, have gone all out to provide the most gorgeous and stylish holiday cottages. High quality beds, sumptuous linens, oak and slate flooring with under-floor heating throughout, stunning bathrooms and well-equipped kitchens – every comfort has been borne in mind to ensure that you have a truly luxurious stay.
The cottages are all quite separate from one another with their own private garden areas. You also have access to 13 acres of fields and orchards, assuming you are happy to share them with the rare breed Dartmoor Whiteface sheep that call it home. The breathtaking beauty of Dartmoor is all around you. So whatever your preference, sitting back in the garden with a glass of wine in hand and relaxing, off-road cycling, trekking on horseback across the moors, walking, golfing or fishing, all is close by.
