Larksworthy Cottage description

Holiday home
Larksworthy Cottage is a pretty, thatched cottage in the village of North Tawton. The cottage has a king-size double bedroom, where an airbed is also available by prior arrangement for added flexibility, and a single bedroom. Downstairs is the bathroom, along with the kitchen, dining room and sitting room with a woodburner. Outside is roadside parking on a first come, first served basis and a garden with furniture, while the shop and pub are just a short walk away. Larksworthy Cottage is ideally placed for enjoying Dartmoor, heading to Okehampton or enjoying either of Devon's beautiful coastlines.

North Tawton is situated just 8 miles north of historic Okehampton. Nestling between the high, rugged tors of Dartmoor and the wide sandy beaches of the North Devon coast, it boasts thatched cottages and quaint pubs and restaurants.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Gas central heating with woodburner. Electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, WiFi. Fuel, power and starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Travel cot and highchair. Roadside parking outside cottage on first come first served basis. Enclosed garden with furniture and BBQ. Sorry, no pets and no smoking.

What a lovely property. As soon as we arrived we felt very welcome. The house was brilliantly equipped, like home from home. The standard of decor was fabulous, a real cottage gem. Wood burner , beams, character and wonky floors, loved it all. We took our dog and young son with us, both very well catered for. Surrounding area was lovely and a great base to travel around many attractions. We will be returning but maybe when our very old dog has passed on as she wasn't allowed in cottage alone but struggled with being out all day everyday (not a criticism at all of the owners rules) . Thanks for a fabulous holiday.

Our family (2 adults +12 year old) spent an October half term at Larksworthy, exploring Dartmoor and beyond. Both the cottage and the county lived up to expectations. Larksworthy is equipped with all that we needed (and much we didn't; plenty of baby kit) and updated to a comfortable, tasteful standard making it an ideal base for walkers, National Trust site visitors, and coasts are even accessible. The cottage would even suit a mid winter break to write or create. We look forward to going back. A cozy, warm, thatched cottage, full of character, making it ideal for an autumn break. In fact it would suit any time of year. Oh, and North Tawton is a working rural village providing many amenities on the door step.

We loved the cosy feel of the cottage, peaceful retreat, waking up to the sound of birds and sheep and no noise. It was in a great position that was central to going out and about into Cornwall as well as other areas easily. The log burner was used most evenings, making it even cosier to snuggle up. We Will definitely return another time.

This property is exactly what you want for a hideaway from everything. A great place to lock yourself away and enjoy what is best about living in the countryside. It has all the amenities you require and is just so peaceful. The cottage is located within easy walking distance to the local basic shops and in a short car journey you can reach all the essential shops and supermarkets that you will need.

The cottage looked homely and welcoming when you stepped into the spacious living room. There was everything you needed, clean with all modern amenities. The owners were helpful and communicative advising on all needs. The cottage is in a tranquil location but close to village for everything you needed. Handy for the moors and both coasts accessible for day trips. We stayed for a week and found it a great base.

The cottage was gorgeous. Being able to light the wood burner and warm the whole house was lovely. Corner suite was so comfortable as was the bed.

The cottage was perfect for us, we couldn't have wanted anything more! The location was great for the places we wanted to go, the village shop more than sufficient for our daily needs and we had no problem at all parking.
