Why Owner chose West Devon

This property, built in the 1880s, is a beautiful character cottage, which is very warm and welcoming. Within a short walk of the Moor, the village and facilities. It is ideally located for walking , exploring and sightseeing holidays. Only 5 miles from the World Heritage Town of Tavistock with its famous pannier market - an indoor market, open 6 days a week. A must for the bargain hunter!

Map

Car: necessary

Situated in the Dartmoor National Park overlooking the village of Horrabridge, Moor's Edge Cottage is five miles south of the market town Tavistock, and within easy reach of Exeter, Plymouth and Cornwall.

Horrabridge has a Church and a Chapel; a public house; a post office and a general store; electrical/hardware and fish and chip shops and a local bakery - all located about ten minutes walk from Moor's Edge Cottage. Horrabridge also has a famous stone bridge over the River Walkham.

Horrabridge

The holiday cottage is located in Horrabridge, a riverside village twinned with Tilly-Sur-Seulles in France. It is located right next to the beautiful Dartmoor National Park in the county of Devon and the bridge itself is the oldest in West Devon.

The village spans the four parishes of Buckland Monachorum, Whitchurch, Sampford Spiney and Walkhampton and the name Horrabridge means bridge on the boundary. The medieval bridge which spans the River Walkham in the centre of Horrabridge has a salmon leap and is the oldest bridge in West Devon.

With a combination of old world charm and modern facilities Horrabridge serves as an excellent base for your Devon or Cornish holiday. From the village there are peaceful views of fields and hills with sheep grazing and in warm weather children swim in the river close to the bridge.

Excellent

This cottage was well equipped. clean & tidy and had everything we needed for our stay. It is located in a very pretty village with excellent facilities, pubs, shops & play areas. Located on the Moor it is within easy distances to Dartmoor Zoo, Tavistock and for exploring. Highly recommend for short stays.
