The Retreat, is perfectly positioned to explore the beautiful South Hams, Dartmoor and further afield. Nestled within the village of Harbertonford, this 200 year old stone-built cottage offers comfortable accommodation for families and couples all year round.

The village boasts a thriving shop and a pub within walking distance, and provides easy access to many characterful and interesting towns including Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. The bohemian and eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and cafes in Totnes provide an interesting day out, or Totnes weekly market sees fresh local produce and artisan crafts in the market square. The yachting ports of Salcombe and Dartmouth are just a short drive and offer plenty of history and sightseeing. Alternatively the stunning beaches of the South Hams provide entertainment for the whole family, through the sunny summer or bracing winter months.

It was a really lovely holiday which was enhanced by so much to do in the area and good places to eat. A great base from which to explore. Appreciated the guest book with suggestions/comments from previous guests. Will be returning!

Had a great week's holiday for 2 people and dog. Great location and lovely village. House super - just courtyard that let it down. Love Totnes and Dartmouth and Dartmoor. Super dog friendly beaches nearby.
