Lily Pad Cottage provides a great base for exploring Dartmoor's stunning national park. Cosy and welcoming, Lily Pad offers self-catering for two on the ground floor of a big Victorian property on the outskirts of the Okehampton, conveniently close to the A30. The cottage affords a sun-trap of a front garden that is secure and pretty in the warmer months with flowering plants and herbs you can pick for cooking. There is also a small courtyard to the rear of the cottage where guests can enjoy a romantic and private alfresco meal and guests may have the use of a hot tub privately.
Beautifully refurbished, Lily Pad Cottage perfectly combines the traditional style of a Victorian home with modern living and comforts, including a stylish kitchen well equipped for self-catering and a big shower room. It enjoys a private position within an extensive garden beside a country lane, with an easy walk to the river which meanders its way up onto Dartmoor.
Conveniently located, Lily Pad Cottage is just a four minute walk up onto the moor and an eight minute walk into the centre of town with its intimate cinema, Waitrose, choice of pubs and restaurants and shops including a quality butcher and bakers. There are also three great antique shops, the Museum of Rural Crafts, two golf courses, wooded trails and the Granite Way for mountain bikers (bike hire available from nearby Devon Cycle Hire), The Arts Gallery brimming with local arts and crafts and the medieval castle just outside the town.
Okehampton is centrally located in Devon and provides a perfect base from which to explore both the north and south coasts. It is ideal for visiting the many attractions that both Devon and Cornwall have to offer including The Eden Project which is only a one hour drive away. Whether you enjoy walking, bird watching, cycling, exploring or simply relaxing, Lily Pad Cottage has immense appeal with excellent amenities close by.
