This cosy property is an excellent choice for a romantic break away by the ocean, also close to many of the great range of visitor attractions in the area.

This delightful destination is great for couples and their canine who want to get away fully from the hustle and bustle of town and city life. From this tranquil spot, you have access to the 32-mile long traffic-free Tarka Trail, which will take two legs and four on a winding route north towards the sand and surf of the Devon coast, or you can journey south to explore the wild tors of Dartmoor.

Adjoining the owner’s house, this one-bedroom annexe features a light and spacious open-plan living space with a cosy wood burner to curl up in front of, either on the sofa or on a favourite blanket or bed. The living area opens out onto a patio area and shared garden where you can wind down after a long day outside. The village of Langtree is just 1.5 miles up the road.

Further afield, the historic port town of Bideford lies 10 miles to the north, with high street shopping and riverside walks along the River Torridge, while 3 miles further you will find the sandy beach at Westward Ho!, where your hound can frolic in the foam or chase balls across the golden sand as the sun sets over the Atlantic. Alternatively, head south for 25 miles and you will reach the town of Okehampton and the northern edge of Dartmoor, where untold adventures await you and your four-legged friends on the legendary tors.

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

The nearest pub, The Green Dragon, is now closed. Sat Nav users should put Langtree as their destination and then follow the directions as given.

The accommodation was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The owners were very helpful and generous. Unfortunately we chose the worse week of the year with Strong gales and heavy rain so ended up being grounded for 3 days mainly because it was a long slow walk to where the car had to be parked and the mud, parking was next to a field gatewayRead more. On our part, we went for a rest and not necessarily sight seeing so achieved what we went for. Hide

Lovely and relaxing stay at truly scrumptious cottage! Very welcoming hosts and an insanely beautiful garden, with a view of tiny birds grabbing some tasty treats. The area is super peaceful and quiet with the rare tractor going by but barely audible. Lots of fun activities no more than 25 minutes drive away. Would love to stay again.

Everything you could need in the cottage, including instructions. Owners very welcoming and some lovely scones and prosecco waiting on arrival. Location is very rural and if you are not going to stay in the cottage then you will need to drive to shops/beach etc. Local pub not the best but plenty of other venues a short drive away.
