Moorview Cottage - Peter Tavy, Nr Tavistock, Devon, Dartmoor, England - Sleeps 5

Moorview Cottage

Moorview Cottage sleeps up to five guests in three bedrooms and is a granite barn conversation that is located on the outskirts of Dartmoor National Park, in a small tranquil hamlet. Open all year round, the cottage is perfect for those who enjoy being outdoors with lots of opportunities to explore the area by foot, bike or even horse back.

Whilst affording a rural peaceful position, Moorview Cottage is easily accessible to the many attractions of the South West such as the world famous Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, spectacular Lydford Gorge (NT) and award winning RHS Rosemoor with its contrasting hot and cold stream gardens.

For those of you who prefer to stay locally, the surrounding area has much appeal. Dartmoor offers an abundance of tracks and trails for walkers with direct access out onto the moor straight from the cottage. Dartmoor is renown for its ancient Tors and you can walk to White Tor, Boulters Tor and Stevens Grave, and for cyclists, Sustrans 'Route 27' passes the front door so don't forget to bring your bike or hire one. Fishing and pony trekking are also available locally.

The popular 15th Century Peter Tavy Inn is just twenty minutes walk away along the lane and a great place for a long leisurely lunch or supper. A little further away, but still within easy walking distance (one mile cross country or a three and a half mile drive) is the Elephants Nest giving you a choice of places to eat and sample the local ale.

The ancient market town of Tavistock is five miles from Moorview Cottage, offering a museum (great place to find out about the local area and its history), good selection of cafes, pubs and shops for stocking up on provisions. Visit the pannier market where you will find a good choice of local produce or the farmers market if you are then when the twice monthly event takes place. For those seeking entertainment, Tavistock Wharf hosts live music and arts events as well as having a theatre and cinema.

Whether you choose to explore the area by foot, bike, car or horse back, there is plenty of wildlife to see including the native Dartmoor ponies and also sheep and cattle that graze freely.
