Starlings is a beautiful luxury retreat for two, offering style, comfort and the most breathtaking panoramic views across the beautiful Devon countryside. Nestled perfectly between two great moors, Dartmoor and Exmoor, this gorgeous cottage is the ideal retreat for those looking to treat themselves to the great outdoors during the day, and the beautiful indoors of Starlings at night.
This stunning cottage is peaceful and welcoming, with endless walks and trails at your disposal which lead off from your doorstep. Heading off in a different direction each day is a must, enjoying the beautiful mature trees and the dazzling wildflowers on the way, all of which bring the valley and surrounding countryside to life in spectacular style. Watching the wild deer and foxes in the evening as they come out to graze is rather special too; such magical sights and sounds to enjoy all day/night long.
This cottage is a great all year round retreat. It boasts a wonderful cosiness, enhanced by under-floor heating in the ground floor living areas and a sumptuous king-sized bed to retire to at night. Not forgetting waking up to the incredible views out over the grazing farm animals to the beautiful countryside beyond; all the makings of a very special and well-deserved breakaway.
The owners live on site, however Starlings and its gardens - facing away from their home - are not overlooked and are very private so you will have all the peace and quiet you would expect in such a tranquil setting.
Not only are you surrounded by your own piece of heaven, one of the best things about this location is that it is easy to get to from the main routes into Devon. A magical scenic drive to the wilds of Exmoor National Park is a must, or head off in the opposite direction to the magnificent moors of Dartmoor. Or perhaps a stroll to the welcoming pub nearby sounds more like the ticket. You have all this and much more right on your doorstep in this fabulous spot.
The nearby market town of Tiverton with its 12th Century castle is well worth a visit, as is the gothic mansion of Knightshayes Court and its beautiful formal gardens. Exploring Exmoor National Park, with its unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, is a must.
A little further away is the wonderful market town of Dulverton - perfectly named as the 'Gateway to Exmoor' and a lovely place to visit for a day out.
All in all, this beautiful cottage is surrounded by glorious and unspoilt Devon countryside. This stunning natural backdrop is magical all year round. Retreating to Starlings following a day of adventure is such a welcoming treat. This beautiful home-from-home offers the perfect nest to snuggle up and relax in whilst planning tomorrow's adventures.
