About Tight Corner Cottage

This gorgeous white washed thatched holiday cottage, with a blue stable door, is the epitome of an ultimate rural retreat set in the pretty village of Petrockstowe in Devon. The minute you step through the door at Tight Corner Cottage you will feel instantly at home. The farm house style kitchen, exposed beams and thick stone walls provide plenty of character, whilst the skilfully crafted handmade beds and tastefully decorated rooms ensures you have a cosy and comfortable holiday in this charming cottage. Sleeping four guests in a double and twin bedroom is it ideal for families or couples looking for a peaceful self-catering break.

Petrockstowe is a small village surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are plenty of walks from the front door and a village pub, perfect for refuelling at the end of the day. Just a few minutes away you will find the infamous Tarka Trail, with thirty miles of traffic free paths, perfect for walking or cycling. You can hire a bike at Torrington Cycle Hire or bring your own and store them in the outbuilding at the cottage. Less than twenty minutes away, the market town of Okehampton sits on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Explore the miles and miles of footpaths and bridleways or head to the National Trust’s dramatic Castle Drogo or find out more about Dartmoor’s industrial past at Finch Foundry.

When you are ready to venture further afield there are plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. Beach lovers can head to the coast to explore the wide sandy bays and plethora of watersports activities on offer. Bude, Croyde, Saunton Sands and Westward Ho! are popular spots for surfing or the sheltered bay at Watermouth Cove near Ilfracombe is a great place to have a go at Paddle Boarding. Alternatively, simply pack your flip flops, fishing nets and buckets and spades and enjoy a traditional family day by the sea.

If you are looking for something a bit different, book a tour at the family run Alder Vineyard where you can find out more about winemaking in Devon as well as enjoying a tipple or two of their award-winning produce. Or head to Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre, a working museum of fairground rides dating back to the 1900s. With ghost trains, dodgems and candy floss on tap, there is plenty of fun for all ages here!

Plan a new adventure every day, or simply relax and unwind in this tranquil corner of rural Devon. Tight Corner Cottage is a gorgeous holiday home at any time of the year.
