This pretty single-storey cottage is part of the history of the lovely mid-Devon village of Iddesleigh. The Old Coach House was just that in days past, but it is now a cosy and welcoming holiday cottage a short stroll from the famous Duke of York pub. This is War Horse country and there are fabulous walks through the unspoilt countryside as well as the nearby Dartmoor National Park. The main accommodation is all on the level with one room leading through to another but there is also a spiral staircase to a little mezzanine area in the eaves. The Owners have put two futon beds up there to create a relaxed space or as a bedroom for children.
With a wood-burning stove in a huge fireplace at the heart of the cottage this is a great place to stay all year round. A dog is welcome so you will be able to make the most of this peaceful rural location. On a clear day you will have glimpses of Dartmoor in the distance tempting you to visit its wild moorland and unique granite tors. If you simply want to stay put, watching village life around you, there is a small seating-area just outside the cottage. Set right on the edge of the village green, we hope that guests will enjoy this space as their 'garden' too.

Looking back at the living/dining area from the kitchen. The light pours in from every angle in this charming house.
A very useful mezzanine provides extra room to escape to, which also provides flexibility of accommodation. Through the door, there is a WC and wash-basin for extra ease.
There's very tasteful and relevant decor.
Just up the hill across the village green is the delightful Duke of York Inn. Great for a spot of food and a refreshing beverage.
The Old Coach House is simply stunning, especially with its new thatch.
Down the side of The Old Coach House lies the path to the Tarka Trail. Endless exploring to be done in this beautiful part of the world.
