Slate Quarry Farm Cottage description

Holiday home

Also in the cottage are a fitted kitchen with breakfast area, dining room with electric stove and sitting room.

Situated on the edge of Dartmoor, Slate Quarry Farm Cottage is a lovely family cottage all year round.

Northlew is a Devon village on the edge of Dartmoor. It has an attractive main square surrounded by traditional buildings, some of them thatched; just off the square are a pub, useful community shop and Post Office. The village is 5 miles west of the ancient town of Hatherleigh, consisting of cob and thatch cottages situated in the heart of rural Devon. Hatherleigh lies in the Torridge Valley just seven miles from the edge of the Dartmoor National Park, and is a wonderful central location for the coast to coast long distance trail, which includes the popular Tarka Trail. The town itself offers a varied selection of interesting craft shops, country inns and cafes.

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?

Slate Quarry Farm Cottage is in a quiet position, well off the road, in rolling Devon countryside, easily accessible and within easy reach of Dartmoor and the coast.

The property was very good indeed. There was plenty of space on the ground floor with a comfortable sitting room and good-sized eating/general room as well as a large, well-equipped kitchen - all of this was on one level. The countryside setting was attractive and peaceful whilst less than a mile from the local village. Highly recommended all round.

The owners made us feel at home from the first day. The pigs, alpacas and chicken were a lot of fun. Set in a wonderful place with stunning surroundings.
