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.

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.
