Bedroom with kingsize (5ft) bed and new and very comfortable pocket-sprung mattress, kingsize duvets, both medium-weight and lightweight, pure cotton bedlinen, wardrobe, chest of drawers, hairdryer. Double French windows opening onto the garden with views up into the canopy of a wonderful old oak tree, draped in lichen.


Fully equipped kitchen with new electric oven and ceramic hob, new fridge with freezer compartment, new microwave, toaster, cafetiere. 


Bathroom with bath, new electric shower and washbasin. Separate WC with washbasin. All linen and towels are provided (but please bring your own beach towels).


All electricity and heating (electric storage and convector) and constant hot water are included in the rent. Electricity is from 100 per cent renewable sources.


Broadband is available just outside the front door - and usually just inside! Mobile reception is generally OK. 


Outside there is masses of space for sitting outside and enjoying the sunshine and birdsong - garden furniture provided - or for sitting in the shade of the wonderful old oak tree outside the cottage. Although the cottage is attached to the main house, it is otherwise completely independent from it and is very private and not overlooked (or walked in front of!).


Car parking is at the top of a short shallow slope that leads down to the cottage. There is one shallow step at the entrance to the cottage. The cottage inside is all on one level.


The cottage has a number of Devon guidebooks, field guides to birds, wildflowers and trees, lots of leaflets from surrounding tourist information offices, and Ordnance Survey maps for walking (Explorer series) and driving (Landranger series) for South Devon and Dartmoor.


The cottage is non-smoking throughout. It is not suitable for children. As this is a nature reserve, we do not allow dogs.
