Located just outside Tavistock on the approach hills to Dartmoor, The Woodshed (UK10114), a detached barn conversion, and The Pumphouse (UK10115) a cosy detached former pumphouse, are located separately in the grounds of the owner’s home. Both cottages have their own unique character and charm, and each has a wood burner in the living area, adding to their cosy and warm feel. Along with private sitting-out areas, guests are invited to wander the well-maintained grounds. There is a large pond in the grounds where guests can sit and enjoy the surroundings. The historical town of Tavistock is close by and has a wider range of shops and amenities as well as its famous pannier market.
During your stay, there is much to see and do. Dartmoor has a number of highlights including Prince Town, Post Bridge and Haytor to name but a few. A visit and walk around Burrator Reservoir is also a must. There are National Trust sites at Castle Drogo and Lydford Gorge, both making for enjoyable days out. Towards the coast there is the historical naval city of Plymouth with The Hoe and Barbican areas to enjoy. Around the coast, there are many coves and beaches waiting to be explored. There is horse riding, golf and fishing all available locally. Beach 21 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile.
The properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 6 guests.

    Much smaller than suggested in pictures. Very little headroom on balcony with only 2 foot headroom to roof if lying on left hand side of bed! No draining board made washing up difficult, and no work surface for food preparation other than dining table. Lovely location and grounds, and weather was warm enough to sit outside most of the time. Great for dogs.

    Ideal base for walking on Dartmoor we even saw a kingfisher on the lake by the Pump House. Great for dogs too.
