Your south-facing annexe is a homemade addition to Pat and Dave’s 1730s miller’s cottage and as cosy as can be for two. Walk straight into fields, woodland and Dartmoor National Park for hiking, exploring Tors and discovering 3,000-year-old bronze age hut circles; cycle route 27 passes close by for a challenge, off-road biking is equally exciting and you’ll find plenty of wild swimming spots (ask Dave if you don’t).
Wander the garden, help yourselves to home-grown veg in season, take part in cider making in autumn, enjoy Pat’s homemade cream teas all year – and when they are laying, eggs from her hens. Dave’s sculptures are dotted about the romantic garden and you can visit his studio – you’re welcome to paint there too. It’s a generous-spirited place.
There’s a walk from the cottage to the church on the hill, St Michael de Rupe, from where the views and the sunsets are amazing; it’s a ten-minute walk to the Peter Tavy Inn, for a pint afterwards. Lovely to hurry back to your homely space, light the wood-burner and be together.
