River Garden Cottage, Dartmoor National Park, Devon England

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Positioned in a quite private lane, just off Buckfastleigh high street, River Garden Cottage provides a bright, relaxing, characterful home, ideal for exploring the wonderful Devon countryside by day before returning for cosy evenings in by the log burning fire.

Stepping into the open-plan living, kitchen and dining area, you'll find an abundance of exposed stonework, oak flooring and beams, matched with rustic and original furniture and fittings.

A short distance from the cottage is a private lawned garden, with a seating area over looking the fast flowing River Mardle.

We provide a parking permit allowing use of any of the four near-by town car parks. There is also a private parking space with a narrow access for a small to medium sized car approximately 100 meters from the cottage

Had a very enjoyable stay. The owner was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had.

The welcome pack was a really nice touch.

Would definitely recommend staying here.

Everything you need and plenty of wood for wood burner. Hot shower, comfy beds. Nice touches with the complimentary Jams , bread and OJ. Good find, cheaper than hotel and more home comforts.

Well situated, cozy, clean and beautifully decorated.

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Devon from Hampshire for the weekend as one member of the party was taking part in the River Dart 10k swim. We do know the area quite well from holidaying in the area in the past. The cottage felt very welcoming on entering, It has been nicely decorated and was very comfortable, especially the beds! It was a lovely touch to find some local bread, butter and jam in a basket on the table and some milk in the fridge on arrival. We did find the car parking space a little bit of a challenge at first but used the parking permit for the other car so not really a problem. All in all a very comfortable stay and I would certainly recommend.
