About Mrs Jeanette Emmett

We have been at Monkstone for 20 years and we love it. It's great for walking and we take our little terrier dog Millie on to Dartmoor everyday with longer walks every weekend to coastal footpaths. Brentor is a lovely little village and nearby Tavistock town a great place to shop. It has everything we need and is a really friendly market town with a famous indoor Pannier Market and lots of individual shops many selling the local food products. We converted Monkstone Cottage from a barn to a cottage about 10 years ago and enjoyed making it comfortable and luxurious for holiday guests. The views are wonderful overlooking Dartmoor from all directions. We are nearby and always happy to help with your holiday.

Mrs Jeanette Emmett purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Mrs Jeanette Emmett chose Tavistock

We bought this house and grounds because we wanted to be on Dartmoor with space and views but also to be near to a town for shopping. We love it because there is total peace and quiet yet it is convenient for the town.

What makes this cottage unique

No other place in the area has such stunning views.
