Whilst perfect for families looking to explore Dartmoor and Devon, this cosy yet spacious holiday cottage is also ideal for couples or friends seeking a relaxing escape, encompassing long walks on Dartmoor and evenings spent relaxing in front of the fire. The holiday cottage is in a truly picturesque setting and is often the subject of visiting artists and photographers. Despite being only a stone’s throw from the village shop, tea room and award-winning village pub, there is an array of scenic walks for all abilities literally from the front door. With Lustleigh’s unique location in the Wrey valley you can take in the spectacular views along the famous Lustleigh Cleave one day followed by a relaxing riverside walk the next musing over the thousands of people and cart horses to use the “packhorse” bridges through the centuries – it really is an ideal location for keen walkers and ramblers. Within the village you’ll find : • The Dairy – a well stocked shop with lots of local produce as well as all the essentials; • The Cleave - award winning pub offering a warm welcome, fantastic food in a relaxed and jovial atmosphere; • The Primrose Tea Rooms – one of the best Tea Rooms in Devon with an enchanting garden; • The Orchard - for younger guests there’s a children’s play area in the Orchard, a magical place to explore where it’s all too easy to believe in Dartmoor Pixies.More

About the neighbourhood
Lustleigh is one of the quaintest villages in the National Park with a thriving and welcoming community. It is also one of the few villages on Dartmoor to boast a varied and well-stocked shop, an excellent Tea Rooms, an award-winning pub and a garage, in case of a little car trouble. Even though all are a short stroll from the cottages’ front door you’ll need to allow an extra 5 minutes as a local is likely to stop you for a chat – it’s just how life should be.
Getting around
With it’s easy road access, Lustleigh is an ideal base to explore both South and North Devon. The nearest train station is Newton Abbot where you can hire a taxi to Lustleigh or arrange to collect a rental car in advance of arrival. Bus services are quite limited on Dartmoor and we therefore recommend having your own transport if possible.
