Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5
As well as having beautiful wooden beams, stone fireplaces and cozy rooms, the cottage was tastefully furnished and decorated. Everything was very clean. The owner was friendly, eager to help. and provided abundant kitchen utensils, bedding and other things to make us comfortable for a few days.
Moretonhampstead is a charming, accommodating village. There are shops, pubs, a small supermarket and walks onto the nearby downs. Tilley's Cottage is close to the centre, convenient for everything.
We've no hesitation in recommended the cottage to friends and are already starting to think about our next visit there.

cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5
Tillys cottage was just as beautiful in the flesh as in the photo's, it was very clean and well maintained, The cottage was so warm and cosy and we loved the wood burner. The complimentary scones and clotted cream where a lovely touch and also very delicious. It had everything that we needed and the layout was perfect. We already have recommended the cottage to our friends and family and will be definitely be returning to tillys cottage again.

The perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5
We opted for a relaxed holiday in Devon to avoid the UK airports and all the hastle that goes with flying.

Tilly's cottage made our choice one of the best decisions we've ever made. The cottage exceeded our expectations in every respect - comfort, location, functionality - it was a joy to spend time there - the only challenge we faced was whether to head off for a Dartmoor walk (and cream tea) or to stay in and relax (the sofa is very addictive!)

We enjoyed the latter as much as the former. We had 2 great evening meals at the White Hart hotel (the staff were really friendly and efficient) and our 15 month old daughter shuffled around the lounge area to her hearts content. Michael Howard's Deli / Butchers counter next door did some good business out of us during our stay and we were very impressed. We also had some gentle strolls around Moretonhampstead and ended up in one of the cafes or pubs for some well earned refreshment.

We will definitely be recommending Tilly's cottage to family and friends and hope to return very soon.

Superb

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is better than the photos...the attention to detail and the amazingly lavish upholstery and furnishings outstrip any hotel I've stayed in. Our 4 & & year old loved the nooks and crannies to hide in in this character property. The surrounding countryside is stunning for walks. There is tha added bonus of a first class deli next door , a co-op 100 metres away and three pubs within 400 metres so all very handy.

VERY cosy and welcoming with everything on the doorstep. We could walk from the door towards Dartmoor and there are numerous well signed walks with the added benefit of being able to dry our wet boots and anoraks in the warm boiler room on our return and then sit by a roaring fire! Ideal for 2 couples with different TV tastes and even an extra sitting area upstairs for reading in peace! We had an excellent meal at the pub a few metres from the cottage and the next door deli is the best ever, which made eating in a pleasure as well. We had had concerns about the car beforehand, but it worked well leaving it in the nearby village carpark.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay in Tilley's Cottage, the cottage itself is extremely clean and very well equipped with the utmost comfort in mind.

It's location is fantastic for exploring Dartmoor and further afield.

The deli next door is an absolute winner, their sausage and bacon sandwiches are a great way to start a day of exploration!

The owners are very friendly and have provided a great information pack within the cottage, along with a contact number for themselves.

We will be recommending Tilley's Cottage to our friends and can't wait to visit again ourselves!
