Holiday Rental House
Great Burrow Cottage (Sunday Times '50 Coolest Cottages in Britain and Ireland') is a detached former Linhay found in the heart of undulating West Devon countryside, in the grounds of Grade II listed Great Burrow Farmhouse. It has stunning uninterrupted views of Dartmoor. French doors lead to a private patio and large tranquil gardens with wildlife ponds, free-range chickens, a beautiful cob and stone barn, ancient oak trees and sweeping views of Dartmoor's wild northern tors. The breathtaking North Cornwall coast is only 30mins away ( surfing, Bude sea-pool, miles of sandy beaches).

The contemporary bathroom has a slate floor and large bath with a deluge shower above. There are great walks directly from the cottage taking in streams, forests and valleys. Enjoy a camp fire round the firepit, as the sun sets on Yes Tor; laze in the hammock under the tall willows. There are table tennis and darts in the adjacent barn, or in the cottage large flatscreen TV with DVD, Freeview, Wifi, books and binoculars! We are pet friendly.More

Interaction with guests
We are next door if you need anything but the cottage is very private and secluded. We are happy to give advice on places to eat, walk and play! In the cottage is a folder of fun things to do which we are always adding to with the help of our guests.

My husband and I escaped to Great Burrow Cottage for a week over Christmas, and we'd be hard pushed to find anywhere more relaxing, restorative and idyllic. Mary and Justin are superb hosts; attentive when needed, quick to respond, yet leaving you to enjoy all...More

This wonderful rustic cottage is located down a very quiet country road. It sits among beautiful trees, chickens scratch around the garden and their cat would come for a visit every now and then. It is everything we could have wanted. Private with amazing views...More

About the neighbourhood
Dartmoor, Bodmin moor and Exmoor are all within easy driving distance whilst fifteen minutes drive away is the castle town of Okehampton and the Cathedral city of Exeter about 30 minutes. The market towns of Tavistock and Launceston are also within easy reach. Dartmoor offers horse riding, cycling, walking and great pubs whilst the North Cornwall coast has miles of sandy beaches, fascinating rock pools and stunning cliff top walks. In addition there are excellent golf courses, water sports, and fishing. We can give you more tailored information when you arrive but have listed a local selection here. Dartmoor was designated one of the National Parks of England and Wales in 1951. The public is able to roam freely on its 369 square miles of unenclosed, open moorland, with around 600 miles o...
Getting around
There are limited buses so a car is really the best way to get around or walking the bridal paths from the cottage. We can always give advice on where to go and you can message us anytime for top tips on pubs, walks etc. WE are dog friendly with two spaniels of our own and can help with dog- friendly beaches etc
