Peter Tavy on the western edge of Dartmoor off the A386.
Two excellent pubs in this area, one the Peter Tavy Inn, the other the Elephant's Nest at Horndon.
Tavistock town is a 10 minute drive away where you will find a colourful indoor market,
and sports facilities. Check out the swimming pool page for more information.
Camping fans will appreciate the attractive campsite right on the river's edge at Harford Bridge.
3 miles out of Tavistock and new my website, Susie Pope offers bed and breakfast in a wing of her lovely home. I loved it
and immediately added it to my honeymoon suggestions page. A beautiful dual aspect double room with a cute smaller twin room
beyond. Private bathroom recently updated. Your own front door, that opens on to the sunniest of balconies overlooking the pretty
garden, full of established trees, primroses, bluebells, daffodils and plenty of birdsong going on as I walked round. Breakfast
is served within the house in a cosy little sitting room. Walks out on to the Moor and foodie places around. Very nice indeed.
B&B £70 for two per night. For 2 rooms £80 for 2 singles. As a family suite - £70 for the main bedroom + £15 for each twin bed
Old fashioned courtesy in a quiet country house. Lovely garden especially at rhododendron time. Off road parking, and an easy drive to Tavistock. The Peter Tavy Inn is just up the road for handy evening meals. Dogs by arrangement but not in the house.
Children Accepted, Dogs Welcome.
B&B is £30 with no supplement if taken as a single room. Children over the age of 10 are welcome to stay.
2 bedroom and 3 bedroom timber clad lodges in this quiet quality campsite in a most picturesque setting alongside the River Tavy
A delightful family run site which has 125 pitches for camping + touring caravans, some static caravans and these 2 upmarket
lodges. I went along to see inside them in cold January this year and was very impressed. They are modern, warm and spacious, light
and spotlessly clean. Very swish indeed. Well equipped with everything from microwave to outside folding chairs to make the most
of the relaxing verandah. Cox Tor has a family bathroom with shower and bath, and there is an ensuite shower room in the double
bedroom. Electricity and bed linen included - just bring your own towels and tea towels. The kids will love
the playpark and the riverbank. Everyone loves the resident ducks. Fly fishing available. I was very impressed - Jill
Children Welcome, No Dogs.
This barn conversion with good views gets plenty of repeat bookings. Room for 6 plus a baby. Ruth Boswell told me that the barn
is very family friendly rather than chic accommodation, and looking at the prices I see that it is very competitively priced
The highest charge in the school holidays is just £599 and as low as £270 in low season. Babysitting on offer and stair
gate, highchair and cot on request. Bed linen is included in the price but towels are extra. Some electricity (90 units)
is included in the rental then charged. Rob and I went over to say hello and loved it. Do read my review to see big
photos and exactly what I think of everything, including the much loved goats.
Sensible pricing throughout the year. Budget priced accom with lots going for it. Last minute break could be possible - ring!!
A holiday let for 4 full of granite and wood. Some electricity foc and an energy log boiler. Well behaved dogs welcome.
I have just visited this accommodation and it's friendly owners. It's a good cheap and cheerful cottage where a baby is welcome.
High-chair, cot, stair gate and babysitting on offer. And no charge at all for up to 2 dogs. Off road parking for 2 cars. Own certified
water supply. Ruth and Chris are totally into self sufficiency and will readily explain their sustainability projects -
PVs, solar thermals, log boiler system and methane gas collection. My husband was completely fascinated by it all.
Prices on the website for last minute breaks. And no charge at all for up to 2 dogs.
A newly appointed ground floor holiday cottage within a short walk of open Moorland. Two king size double rooms each with en-suite
shower rooms. So perfect for foursome parties who both fancy a master bedroom. Up to the minute kitchen with flash contemporary
gadgets. Original exposed beams in the large fab sitting room which has a wood burner, flat screen tv and great views. All very swish
and tickety boo. I will be visiting with the camera hopefully before Easter. In the meantime take a look at the website to see....
