Property code: HIGHM

First floor studio apartment, located within the boundaries of Dartmoor National Park, with access to fantastic walks directly from the front door, just three miles from the town of Tavistock.

A walker’s, stick chaser’s, adventurer’s delight! This first-floor studio apartment sits next to the magical moorland of Dartmoor National Park so hop out of bed and step straight off the property, into the great outdoors where sticks are waiting to be fetched and chewed. Local pubs welcome both two and four-legged members of your family and are waiting to spoil you all with delicious food and tasty treats.

Entrance to the apartment is via an external set of steps which leads straight into the gorgeous open-plan living space. The sleek, contemporary kitchen is a great space for you to cook up a storm and perhaps rustle up a special holiday dinner for the dogs as they observe with noses in the air! Dine in style at the table or take your plate outside and enjoy an al fresco meal in the outdoor seating area. On milder evenings unwind with a glass of wine outside whilst your furry guests are free to chase their tails and tire themselves out before bedtime. a beautifully decorated bedroom with en-suite is a calming place to rest your head, and for the remaining four-legged family members, a fluffy rug in the lounge area is a welcoming spot to curl up in before trotting into bed.

Only 4 miles from home, the market town of Tavistock has plenty to see and do including a peaceful canal walk. If you and your clan enjoy waterside wandering, then the National Trust property of Lydford Gorge is a 9-mile drive. Here, the deepest gorge in the South West awaits and is home to a spectacular 30-metre waterfall.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Our apartment was fabulous. Spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending to friends. Perfect base for exploring Devon and into Cornwall. The Peter Tavy Inn is highly recommended and they've got social distancing down to a tee.

Lovely 1st floor apartment in a well converted barn with excellent views. Really well equipped kitchen, spacious living area and comfy sofa and bed. Little seating and cooking area with BBQ outside by the car parking space. We were able to take both dogs which was ideal. Would book again.

We had a lovely break in Devon, which was helped by the weather. The accomodation allowed our dog which was great and it was clean and had everything we needed. The owner was also friendly.

Stayed here for the Christmas week, 2019. A lovely welcome when we arrived - Christmas tree up, box of chocs and a bottle of bubbly in the fridge!

Stunning cottage in a lovely location. Our host was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, places to visit are in abundance and reasonably priced. Good idea to be a National Trust or English Heritage member to save cash big time. We would happily stay again .
