Nestling in a secluded valley in Dartmoor National Park this semi-detached cottage, built in the early 1800s, boasts a beautiful location surrounded by almost two acres of the most stunning countryside including a glorious wildlife pond (please take care with children).
Ullacombe Cottage provides a wonderful base to explore this fabulous part of Devon with the infamous Haytor Rocks a mere two miles away, and only a five minute drive away you will find the charming town of Bovey Tracey, which offers a good selection of shops and restaurants. Not forgetting that the sandy beaches of the nearby towns such as Teignmouth, Dawlish and Shaldon are also a short drive away.
After a full day of fun and adventure, this delightful cottage awaits with its roaring wood-burner for chillier evenings and the superb patio area which is ideal for a spot of al fresco dining. This beautiful cottage is exceptionally equipped for the perfect day or night in, and also offers a private garden and access to the orchard beyond, the younger members of the party who need to let off steam or fancy a game of football will be overjoyed.
Beautiful sights and scenes can be enjoyed from all angles in these beautiful grounds, however if you would like some help planning a more action-packed day, the owners only live next door and are more than willing to help you make the most of your holiday in this very special part of the world.
Your location is quite special. Perhaps cycling, climbing, horse-riding, walking or a spot of geocaching takes your fancy? If so, numerous exciting activities can all be found on your doorstep.
Or why not try some local Devon produce at Ullacombe farm shop and cafe? This extremely popular farm shop sells a whole range of goodies, from fresh bread from the bakers to a vast selection of fish from the fish deli, and a fabulous selection of local ciders, the local sought-after produce is available in abundance. Perhaps a cream tea in the beautiful cafe is more your thing, whatever your preference, this fabulous farm shop is very much worth a visit, especially as it's only a ten minute walk from the cottage.
Dartmoor is home to rare and spectacular sights. Meandering through the gorgeous Dartmoor National Park is a real treat, and with numerous pubs and cafes scattered throughout, each day is different. However, a holiday is not all about adventure and action, taking the time to relax and unwind is crucial, and in this peaceful and tranquil spot it's very easy to do! Why not light the barbecue, pop open a bottle of something tasty, sit back and relax on your private patio whilst the abundance of wildlife puts on a rather colourful and energetic show. Ullacombe Cottage is a wonderful year-round holiday destination for all ages, and with so much to offer you won't want to leave.
