About the property

A charming character cottage in a tranquil Dartmoor village setting

A delightful escape for two. Adjoining the owners' home, this lovely cottage is full of character and charm featuring a light and airy living room with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a stone fireplace with a gas log-effect stove. There is also a galley style kitchen, a modern downstairs bathroom with bath and shower. Upstairs there is a galleried double bedroom, again with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams; please note that the stairs are quite steep and would not be suitable for those with mobility problems. WiFi available. Guests are welcome to relax and enjoy the south facing garden. In addition, there is off-street parking in front of The Forge. We regret that pets are not accepted in this property. There is a second one-bed cottage available - The Lodge at Bedford Cottage (property number 1783378)

Peaceful stay in Devon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I realy enjoyed our stay at this cottage.It was extremely comfortable and homely and catered for all our needs.The owners were very welcoming and accommmodating.

The property is situated in a pretty village which has an excellent Inn which we enjoyed on several occasions, and the adjacent moors made for some excellent walking.

We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anybody.

Cosy comfortable hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, ideal for two, with everything you need. Immaculately clean and with very welcoming owners Carol & Andrew there if you needed them. Lovely village with excellent local pub only 50 yards away. We were so lucky with the weather (Indian summer), but would happily stay in winter. So much to do within easy reach, and thanks to Carol & Andrew for laying on the lunar eclipse for us!
