Get away from it all and come to The Bothy for an unusual and special treat, you will be pampered with a delicious welcoming hamper, a charming range of fragrant soaps and lotions, high quality towels and linen and a bottle in the fridge too! This absolutely gorgeous little detached cottage, 16th century in origin, is a truly romantic hideaway! Buried in glorious countryside and surrounded by 4 acres of wild, informal but beautiful gardens and woods, recognised by the National Garden Scheme, the cottage is alongside the owners’ home, has its own large private area of garden, is very tastefully decorated with delightful personal touches and has an extensive library. Close to Dartmoor National Park, famous for its rugged beauty, the Two Moors Walk and the glorious Teign valley, where a visit to Castle Drogo is highly recommended, the cottage is also close to the A30, giving easy access to the whole South West.

Please note: Access to The Bothy is via an unmade track.

Please note: Due to the steep stairs this property may not suitable for those with walking difficulties.

Delightful cottage with so much character. The owners were very friendly and helpful without in any way being intrusive. I like to know some history about where I am staying and the area, so for me something in the guest information book would have been interesting and welcome. Access to the property is better via Spreyton. Many thanks.

Absolutely the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed at. The setting was amazing. 4 acres of beautiful gardens. Very well equipped, extra bonus was the fantastic collection of books available to borrow and read.Would love to come back at some stage.

We had an amazing short break. The Bothy was truly magical we felt the photographs didn't do it justice. Michael and Richard were very friendly and helpful and made our overall stay very enjoyable. Keep up the amazing work. We can't wait to come back!
