This beautifully renovated cottage offers the perfect combination of style, luxury and comfort. If you and your friends or family are looking for a picture-perfect retreat, both inside and out, you have found it!

Nestled on the outskirts of Dartmoor, the location is very special too. If relaxing on a summer's day is your desire, the sprawling enclosed garden, equipped with patio furniture and sun loungers is simply perfect, or perhaps a glass of something tasty around the fire-pit as the sun goes down sounds rather special, this fabulous setting is magical whatever time of the day.

Wildlife lovers, you will be in your element. Your very nosey neighbours range from deer and foxes to a whole host of birds including owls.

Venturing out to explore the nearby hotspots is a must. You have the delightful villages of Ilsington and Ashburton within a short car journey, offering fabulous eateries, welcoming watering holes and a range of fabulous shops to suit all tastes. Or slightly further afield you have the glorious sandy beaches in Shaldon or Teignmouth or the stunning Cathedral City of Exeter, all of which are definitely worth a visit.

Returning to Owlacombe Bridge Cottage perfects the most special of days. Lighting the wood-burners, cosying up on the sumptuous sofas or cuddling up in one of the super-comfy beds, whatever you desire this exceptional cottage offers it all.

This dog-friendly cottage is a real Devon gem. The beautiful interiors, fabulous colour schemes, hand-crafted woodwork and some very special touches ensure that you will be 'wowed' the moment you step through the door.

However, not only are you staying within one of the most luxurious cottages Dartmoor has to offer, access to the A38 is exceptionally easy; exploring is made very simple and stress-free. Visiting some of the iconic and popular villages and towns such as Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Brixham is a doddle, and very much worthwhile as each of these beautiful places has something very special to offer.

You also have a fabulous selection of beautiful beaches within a reasonable car drive away. Teignmouth is a traditional seaside family beach with perfect sand for sandcastles, and there are several cafes along the promenade for fish and chips or an ice cream. Shaldon is a popular choice for a number of water sports including sailing, fishing, swimming, canoeing and rowing.

However why venture out at all when you are located within one of the most spectacular and sought-after locations, Dartmoor. With the numerous pubs and cafes littered throughout the moors, paddling in the streams and rambling aimlessly followed by a spot of lunch in a nearby pub is the perfect day out for all ages.

Owlacombe Bridge Cottage is the ideal dog-friendly venue all year round. With its fully enclosed garden, external CCTV and full house and garage alarm system, you can unpack and relax with total peace of mind, in one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots in the country. Whether you seek rest and relaxation or adventure and attraction, this stunning cottage offers it all.
