Moorland View is a thatched, Grade II-listed two-bedroom cottage built in 1705. Its beautifully preserved original features include wood-beamed walls, an inglenook fireplace, oak doors, flagstone floors and window seats that give way to views of our romantic walled rose garden.
North Bovey is one of the UK's prettiest and best preserved historic villages, with a 13th century thatched pub that serves delicious food and real ales, a parish church, oak-shaded green and wooded river spanned by ancient stepping stones and clapper bridges. It's remote, peaceful and unhurried.

The cottage is in the wilds of Devon's Dartmoor National Park, home of big-sky moors, craggy peaks, thatched hamlets, Stone Age hut circles, wooded gorges, fairytale castles and grand stately homes.
