Cottage
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, large tranquil gardens with our Scandinavian wood-fired hot tub, 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). A heat exchange system provides constant hot water with underfloor heating that keeps the cottage really cosy and a woodburner too for that added snug feel.

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. Bathe in the hot tub, cook on the camp fire round the firepit, watch the sun sets on Yes Tor; laze in the hammock under the tall willows or play table tennis and darts in the adjacent barn. In the cottage is a large flatscreen TV with DVD, Freeview, Wifi, books and binoculars! Dogs (and pets) are welcome by arrangement at £20 per stay.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
