Surrounded by stunning and dramatic moorland scenery of the Dartmoor National Park, Enthurst Cottage is a welcoming holiday property and is tucked away in the picturesque Devon hamlet of Didworthy near South Brent.  Located to the southern fringes of Dartmoor, walking, riding or fishing opportunities are in abundance; and whilst Didworthy may charmingly be off the beaten track, it’s only within a couple of miles of the thriving village of South Brent which is home to several well know traditional pubs, tea rooms and shops. Alternatively the sandy beaches of the South Hams or popular shopping days in Exeter or Plymouth are a short drive away making Enthurst Cottage an ideal base from which to enjoy a holiday.

Ideal for both families and couples, Enthurst Cottage offers homely accommodation with a warming open fire in the lounge, a modern kitchen, two bathrooms and lovely gardens.  Set amongst extensive grounds, the property is a wing to the owner’s home, and yet the entrance and garden are privately positioned.  

Available during the months of May to September, the superb detached leisure complex offers a heated swimming pool, hot tub, changing room with shower as well as a full size snooker table, air hockey table, table tennis and gym.  Please note: The pool and leisure complex is shared only with the owners and their family who are very respectful of their guest's privacy and will only use the pool and leisure facilities whilst guests are out for the day. 


Front door opens into spacious and light entrance hall with dining table to seat 6.  Large dual aspect lounge with open fire, sofa, two armchairs, TV, SKY and DVD player.  Sizeable well equipped modern kitchen with built in electric ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and breakfast bar with two chairs.  First floor: Bedroom 1 with 5ft king bed with built-in wardrobe and chest of drawers.  Family shower room with large shower, wash basin, toilet and bidet.  Bedroom 2 with 5ft king bed, TV, mirror fronted built-in wardrobe (please note that this bed is positioned against a wall with access to just one side).  Bedroom 3 with two 3ft single beds and built-in wardrobe.  Family bathroom with bath, wash basin and WC.  

Available during the months of May to September there is a detached leisure complex. Facilities include a heated swimming pool, available between the hours of 9am and 8pm (14m by 6m and 2.4m deep) with diving board. Please note that this pool is not a baby or toddler's bathing pool.  Guests may also use the hot tub, gym and games room with full size snooker table, table football, air hockey table and table tennis.

Please note: The pool and leisure complex is shared only with the owners and their family who are very respectful of their guest's privacy and will only use the pool and leisure facilities whilst guests are out for the day.

Excellent stay. Great hosts and excellent leisure facilities.

September 2018

Nice and welcoming, only thing we had an issue with was the beds were not very comfy and very squeaky. Nice private location, wasn’t bothered by anyone and public footpath just up the lane was fab! Would go back :)

Thank you for a wonderful week in Enthurst Cottage and for being so warm and welcoming. The gardens are just lovely and it was fantastic having access to the pool, gym and games rooms. We had a lovely time exploring the area and lazing around in your cosy cottage.

Lovely property every thing one could wish for including a pool and gamesroom ,good walking up to the moor and down to the village highly recommended on all counts,we will probably use again in the future.

July 2017

We enjoyed our stay , owners were very welcoming, the cottage was very comfortable and it was great to have the pool and games rooms to ourselves, We were sorry to leave before Tigi had her kittens but hope they arrived safely. It was also good to have some basics in the kitchen on arrival, as well as cream, scones and jam on arrival, there was a supply of tea, coffee , sugar t salt, pepper, cooking oil, foil, clingfilm and washing up tabs. Useful to have and irritating if you have to buy for a holiday let period.
