Suzy, left, purchased Moorland View in 2007as a run-down cottage in dire need of some TLC. She commissioned a raft of local traditional craftsmen including blacksmiths and thatchers to restore the 300-year heritage of the Grade II listed building, and after 18 months, launched it as a  luxury holiday cottage in 2009. 

Guests come for a traditional English country cottage experience in the peace and quiet of the beautiful Dartmoor countryside. Both the cottage and village setting are incredibly romantic and Moorland View has seen countless engagements, weddings, honeymoons, minimoons and anniversaries. 

Suzy works as a travel journalist and photographer for the national press. She is The Daily Telegraph's Devon expert and writes the paper's annual destination guide to the county.
