Moorland View Cottage
Dartmoor National Park
Devon TQ13 8RA
The M4 from London, the M6 from the North West and the M1/M42 from the North East link up with the M5 to Devon, from where you can join the A30 to Moretonhampstead, our nearest town. North Bovey is a five-minute drive from here. If you're using a sat nav/GPS, plug in Moretonhampstead, our nearest town, as your destination. From Moretonhampstead, turn into Pound Street, opposite the Co-op, and keep following this single-track country lane for about 1.5 miles until you get to North Bovey. Once you’ve passed the 'North Bovey, please drive carefully' sign, take the first turning on the left (opposite a grassy island with a tree in the middle). Moorland View is the third terraced cottage on the right, with two lollipop-shaped bay trees outside and a dark purple door. This is the back entrance, where there is space for one car. There's more free parking on the village green.
Regular services leave London Paddington and London Waterloo for Exeter St Davids. There's a taxi service at Exeter St Davids station (01392 666 666; appletaxisexeter.co.uk), with cabs costing around £35 one-way to North Bovey. Due to the remoteness of the cottage, we recommend hiring a car. Abbeyford Car Hire deliver vehicles to Exeter St Davids station (01392 214242, www.abbeyfordcarhire.co.uk).
The nearest international airports are Exeter (a 40-minute drive away), Plymouth (50 mins), Bristol (1hr 50 mins), London Heathrow (3hrs) and London Gatwick (4hrs).
