Historical Devon Cottage

Dating from 1704 and Grade II-listed, this former farm-labourers’ cottage is has immense historical charm and character, with a thatched roof, wood-beamed walls, exposed stonework, flagstone floors, inglenook fireplace, original date plate and pretty walled cottage garden. Even the original hooks remain, which were originally used for hanging and cooking meat.

Idyllic Dartmoor Village Location

Moorland View is in North Bovey, one of Devon’s prettiest thatched villages, comprising an oak-shaded village green, clusters of thatched stone cottages, 13th century church and friendly thatched village pub, The Ring of Bells. North Bovey is surrounded by sheep-filled pastures, ancient woodlands and tinkling streams, and is incredibly peaceful. The only sounds you’ll hear are distant church bells, birdsong and the occasional clip-clopping of horses’ hooves.

Contemporary Rustic-Chic Decor

The cottage has been decorated in a modern rustic style, with many pieces made by Dartmoor artisans or purchased from local antiques markets. Decorative ironwork was hand-forged by the village blacksmith and baskets, rugs, pottery, chopping boards and textiles were specially commissioned from local craftspeople. There are several quirky pieces on display gathered from farming friends in the village, a display of touching postcards written from North Bovey in the early 1900s.

Cottage Luxuries

Everything for a blissful self-catering break is provided, including wellington boots for countryside strolls, his and hers’ mountain bikes, firewood to last a week, glossy magazines, a Sonos music system, television loaded with Netflix and Amazon Prime, gorgeous library of hardbacks, scented candles and marshmallows for toasting on the fire.

Blissful Days and Cosy Nights

Wake up to far-reaching views of lushly-forested hills grazed by wild horses (binoculars provided). Whirl away days exploring Dartmoor National Park’s gorges, fairytale castles and ancient hamlets. Shop at eclectic antiques markets and breathe lungfuls of fresh sea air on Devon’s sandy beaches. Evenings bring starry skies, candle-lit dinners in rustic country pubs, deep, foam-filled baths, crackling log fires and a sumptuous king-sized bed layered with luxurious linen.
