    About this property

    Complimentary Welcome Hamper
    A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

    S44796 is an attractive barn conversion situated in a small hamlet in one of the finest areas of the Dartmoor National Park. Despite the secluded location, it is ideally located for exploring both Devon and Cornwall as the A30 is only a short drive away.
    The delightful ancient stannery town of Chagford, 2.5 miles offers excellent shops, restaurants and pubs as well as the famous, Gidleigh Park Hotel (2 Michelin Stars). Along with glorious walking, riding, beautiful gardens and historic sites in the area, there is so much to do all year round. The National Trust's Castle Drogo can be glimpsed from the house. Should you ever tire of the dramatic, compelling landscape of Dartmoor, then Devon's oldest seaside town Exmouth, the gateway to the Jurassic Coast, which boasts two miles of sandy beach is an easy 30 mile drive and a World Heritage site. The coasts both North and South are easily reached.
    The spectacular surfing beaches of North Cornwall and Devon are also easily accessed, as is Exeter, Devon's capital city and home to the magnificent Exeter Cathedral. The shortest journey time from London Paddington to Exeter St Davids is 2 hours and Exeter is just over 18 miles away from the property.

    "Lovely property, everything you could ever need provided, warm and very comfortable, excellent communication with property owner Louise. Would definitely recommend."

    "S44796 is a beautiful cottage, tastefully decorated and very well equipped. It is located in a picturesque area and has a very relaxing atmosphere. There are a variety of places to visit in the locality to suit all ages and interests. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!"

    "Beautiful , high speck house in a quiet and relaxing location. It had everything in terms of equipment one could wish for. The owner couldn't have been more helpful or obliging. Our only gripe was that we had one real, functioning shower between the 4 bedrooms. The 2 other bath connections had no real pressure. That did not take from our overall satisfaction, however but made us hesitate about giving 5 stars."

    "A beautiful cottage with excellent quality of furnishings, bedding etc. Ideal for a family get together for my husband's 70th birthday. Very quiet position and lovely outside area and garden. This would have been 5stars but the water system did not have any pressure in the two bathrooms. The bath took at least half an hour to run and the hand held shower could not be used as no pressure. This led to 8 of us having to use the cloakroom/shower which worked fine but was not ideal. Apparently we should have contacted the owner to report this whilst we were there but we managed with the one shower and our contract was with RR anyway who I reported this to on our return and they investigated this with the owner and handled the problem very efficiently to my complete satisfaction."

    "We stayed at S44796 at the start of April. The house was fabulous for us - me, my husband and our 4 children (7yrs, 6yrs, 3yrs and 1yr). It was immaculately presented on arrival, including the delicious Victoria Sponge we had read about in previous reviews!! There were plenty of towels, lovely White Company toiletries, a welcome hamper with lots of very helpful items, tissues in most of the rooms and incredibly comfortable beds! Our children loved playing in the garden and our baby was kept busy and entertained with the toy basket. The owner had checked with us prior to arrival whether we needed stairgates and they were up for us when we got there. The highchair and cot were both in very good, clean condition as well. Everything was clean and beautifully presented! The owner was absolutely lovely as well. We loved the location - very pretty area and we did a lot of exploring each day.Such a great holiday and we would definitely stay again - and would certainly recommend a stay at S44796!"

    "An absolutely beautiful break with lots of fantastic walks in very scenic countryside. A warm and cosy cottage to return to, the hamper and cake on arrival a lovely touch. Thank you."
    The Coombes & Marsden families
    "We have stayed in quite a few cottages through Snaptrip as we know they are of very high quality. We chose the above cottage for a family break over the new year and were not disappointed, the standard of accommodation was excellent, fantastic upstairs living room area that had so much space for everyone including a tiny 18 month old who loved being able to run up and down, stair gates provided and locks on cupboards meant Mum could relax and leave him to it. So much is provided from the lovely hamper in the kitchen to the toys and games for kids and adults and with an endless supply of logs you had to tear yourself away from the cosy lounge. Despite the awful weather we managed to have some great walks and visit lovely villages on Dartmoor, our location meant we were close to everything Dartmoor has to offer. Louise 'the owner' was very helpful with suggestions for local pubs and even gave us a takeaway menu for a curry house that would deliver ( amazed they got through with all the local flooding). We will definitely return to S44796, maybe a springtime visit. Thanks for a great stay!"
