A beautiful too short break in a fabulous cottage. The decor, attention to detail and setting is perfection. We loved it so much we have booked again for a much longer break next year.
If you are thinking of booking I would say do it, it's worth every penny. Suzy has thought of everything and more.
A special, special place.

Me and my husband recently returned from a short stay at Moorland view cottage. We loved every moment from the journey in to Dartmoor, to opening the door through to the cottage. The cottage was perfect in every way, from the decor to all the little touches, I loved everything about the cottage, every time I think back to our time there I can't help but smile. We had such a relaxing stay, it was lovely to wake up to hearing birds chirping and the church bells ringing. North Bovey is such a sweet little village , lots of nice walks to go on and the local pub the ring of bells is defiantly worth a visit , very friendly staff and the locals too are very welcoming and the food was great! .Suzy was very helpful and friendly throughout the entire booking and we can't wait to book again!

This cottage is stunning. Prefect in every way. We stayed here for our mini moon straight after our wedding. It was just what we needed. The village is lovely. Cottage very well kitted out and very clean. Everything has been thought of. We enjoyed spending cosy nights in, in front of the fire watching films. The bath is amazing !!! We walked over to Bovey Castle using the wellies provided. The information book in the cottage gave us lots of ideas of things to do. Highly recommend, can't wait to go back Thank you for a lovely stay X

My husband and I stayed at Moorland View in early October for our first wedding anniversary and everything, from initial contact with Suzy to directions and finding the key, was smooth and professional. As soon as we walked through the beautiful cottage door, we were so impressed and wowed with everything such as the welcome pack to the décor throughout the property. It was everything we could have asked for and after a day exploring the delights of Devon, we were excited to return to the cottage each evening. If you're looking for a cosy, luxurious stay, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for making our first anniversary a romantic, magical time Suzy and Linda.

It's hard to know where to start here as there's so many different aspects of my stay that I enjoyed. Overall I'd say that it's the attention to detail that stood out to us.
The cottage is stunning! The design is elegant, quirky, comfortable and romantic all at the same time. You discover little treats throughout your stay...and I don't want to spoil it all by giving everything away bt details such as wellies being left for guests, marshmallows and squewers left by the fire and a free membership to Bovey Castle are just some of the thoughtful touches Suzy has in store for her guests. The linen, products on offer in the large bathroom and big fluffy dressing gowns all make you feel spoiled and well cared for. Even the instructions that we were sent beforehand gave us tons of ideas for how to make the most of our stay in the cottage & the local area...which brings me on to the surrounding countryside.
Sadly we were only able to stay the weekend at the cottage but next time we will definitely aim for a longer visit of four nights so we can properly unwind and make the most of our time. Walks,bike rides and a meal at the fantastic pub on the green are a must, as well as a cream tea at Bovey Castle. The countryside around the cottage is stunning and we wish we'd had time to do a few more walks! We didn't travel by car and didn't need one but next time we'd love to visit some of the recommendations on Suzy's list that were a little further afield. One little extravagancy we certainly couldn't have missed out on though was our lunch at Gidleigh Park! It's pricey but worth every penny as the food,service and setting is fabulous. Just make sure you book well in advance!
Moorland View is a unique cottage, in a unique location. You can curl up in front of the fire with a book and glass of wine, spend hours rambling through unspoilt countryside, indulge in fine dinning or high quality pub food or be pampered at the nearby Bovey Castle spa. It's not an escape you will forget...at least we won't. For me Suzy has got the balance of luxury and village authenticity just right. Thank you.

Not a stone out of place. The attention to detail was far superior to staying in any kind of hotel. We just loved the fireplace, the kitchen, the bedroom, the view, the garden, the wellies, the pub, i could go on... Well done Suzy.

We booked Moorland View Cottage for our mini-moon and are already planning to return! The cottage is absolutely beautiful, every detail thought out and presented to a very high standard. Most communication with Suzy was by email and she was very prompt which was great. When we arrived at the cottage the heating was on and the lights were on dim which was so cosy and inviting. There was also a bottle of wine some olives and a card on the dining table. Such a lovely personal touch. We cannot fault a thing. The slipper bath and log fire are amazing! The welcome pack is a great help and the guest passes for Bovey Castle are a great bonus. The local area is really quiet and so beautiful. A car is definitely needed to get around although the narrow country lanes are a challenge. Moorland View is a luxury cottage with a home-from-home personal feel.

Highly recommend this beautiful cottage! Gorgeously decorated inside with so many perfect little surprises and details. The bath is wonderful and the beds are very comfy. The village pub is worth going to and Bovey Castle is worth a visit (free membership with cottage), lovely pool and grounds. We reccomend the gorge walk from Castle Drogo (map and details in cottage), very beautiful and 2 hours approx. we couldn't have wished for more out of our stay, truly relaxing! Worth knowing before you go-we couldn't get any mobile phone signal in the village. Thank you Suzy for a wonderful time!
Normally I am not stuck for words, but this holiday left me so relaxed, it is proving difficult.
It's a completely different pace of life when compared to London. Small village, narrow roads, surrounded by more small villages and incredible scenery. We still had an amazing week despite the weather being hit and miss: from the 360 degree views at Eastern Tor then relaxing at Bovey Castle spa using the free guest passes, the local villages of Moretonhamstead and Chagford are close enough to nip in and out of, and top up the supplies. Best places for food nearby: the Ring of Bells and the White Horse was so good we went twice, to both.
The cottage itself if brilliant. The attention to detail was noticeable throughout, and when the sun disappeared, the (several) bottles of wine and local ales enjoyed by the fire was hardly a bad alternative to chilling in the garden. Spotify and speakers throughout, his and hers mountainbikes, 2 big bedrooms with one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in and a bathroom with one of the biggest baths I've ever stepped foot in.
In the week we were there we even managed to fit in a couple of day trip excursions to Blackpool Sands, Dartmouth Castle and we capped it all off with what is now officially the best Fish and chips in the country at the Rockfish Grill.
You can tell you've had a good stay, when you're already planning your next visit. I highly recommend this. If you're looking for a break from the city life or just want to relax - you will not be disappointed.

This beautiful cottage is absolute 5* luxury. A romantic hideaway with perfect peace & quiet. Everything that you would need is at your fingertips. Fabulous bedding, towels & toiletries. Log fire, board games, wifi, surround sound music in the important rooms (take your ipod) Sky TV, Blue Ray DVD. The local pub is a must, great company and great food. Also if you have the time take a drive to Topsham, brilliant individual shops & antiques on the quay and Bovey Castle hotel & spa is amazing.
Would throughly recommend to all, the perfect escape from the rat race a little piece of heaven in Devon
