About Monkstone

A delightful holiday cottage that on the outskirts of Dartmoor National Park, within just fifteen minute's walking distance up to Brentor Church, which dates back to the 13th Century and is one of Devon’s most famous landmarks sitting in an elevated position at 1100ft high.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside and located at the end of a private drive, the cottage sits in the ideal location to escape the pressures of every day life and enjoy some relaxation time. During the summer months you can relax amongst a riot of colour in the private garden whilst marveling at the magnificent sunsets and soaking up the peaceful countryside setting with a glass of wine! In the cooler months, enjoy a day discovering Dartmoor's many delights, then put your feet up and relax in front of the flickering flames of the log burner.

Picturesque Lydford Gorge (National Trust owned) is just a short drive (five minutes), or head in the opposite direction to Tavistock's bustling market town which offers a great selection of excellent food shops for stocking up on local produce and a popular Pannier Market.

For those wanting to travel further a field the cottage is a good base for exploring all of the attractions of both Devon and Cornwall with their beautiful sandy beaches, quaint fishing villages and lovely rolling countryside.

This delightful retreat is perfect for couples and is ideally situated half way between the North and South Devon Coasts and just five miles from the border with Cornwall offering world renowned gardens such as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan within one hour's drive.

For the more active guests, there are plenty of sporting activities to enjoy including off road cycle paths, golf, pony trekking, gliding and the hills and valleys of Dartmoor to explore on foot.

Three miles to the north lies the pretty village of Lydford, with its Norman castle keep, the Lydford Gorge (where you can explore the deepest parts of the gorge along parapet paths and suspended walkways) and the Saxon Castle Inn, which serves bar meals and offers restaurant dining.

Whether you are looking to simply relax or want to explore this beautiful area, Monkstone is an ideal destination.
