During the winter months, I am happy to offer special rates for mid-week four-night breaks, Monday to Friday, please just ask for a price.
Child and pet friendly, Furzeland Down Cottage sits on the edge of the Walkham valley, within Dartmoor National Park. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and also within a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The kitchen is aimed to please those who enjoy cooking, you will find everything from an electric whisk to a wok, with a good selection of sharp preparation knives, bottle openers and vegetable peelers.
There's plenty of glassware, from champagne flutes...

Interaction with guests
I will be on hand to welcome you on the day of your arrival and often at home or at the end of the phone line if you have any queries during your stay. If you arrive late I can give you the key safe code. Guests sometimes text me for suggestions of what to see or do...such as where to get a steam railway ride, the best rock pooling beaches, where to get the best Chinese takeaway or fish and chips and so on.... On the morning of departure I am also available to take back the key and wish you a safe onward journey.

The ancient Stannary town of Tavistock was recently voted best market town in England and is a few minutes drive away. It has a very interesting indoor pannier market, Abbey ruins, restaurants, bistros, cafes and pubs, a lovely river walk, eclectic shops, indoor pool and arts centre.
It is the largest town in West Devon, with fine architectural buildings built by the the 7th Duke of Bedford.
We are 25 minutes from Plymouth with spectacular views across the Sound and the Barbican being a particular draw.
Just across the road from the property is the national cycle route 27, where you can cycle or walk to North Devon in one direction and Plymouth in the other. Then there's 368 square beautiful miles of Dartmoor National Park to discover.
