About Wendy Head moortoseacottages
We are Mark, Wendy & Ellie and we live on Dartmoor in Devon with our hens and ducks. We owned holiday cottages in a nearby village for 12 years, then took a break to bring up our daughter. We had the opportunity to purchase property in Rock, Cornwall which have been successful as holiday rentals. We have now converted the barn which was the site of the original Manor House before it burnt down. It has a 'home from home' feel which is important so you can relax and enjoy your holiday. We have added things we have collected over the years to make it feel homely for our guests. If you wish to plan a two centre holiday we aim to provide short breaks at both location except in high season. We are nearby if needed but Cowshed has a private garden giving full seclusion for relaxation. We have several properties if you would like a two centre holiday moortoseacottages
Wendy Head moortoseacottages purchased this Barn in 2007
Why Wendy Head moortoseacottages chose Moretonhampstead
We have lived on Dartmoor for many years and love the countryside, walks and the relaxed way of life. There is something for everyone, walking, cycling, sightseeing, National Trust property and access to the coast is within an hour. The Cowshed was converted during 2014 so provides a modern living space in a character building with lovely country views and a peaceful setting. A real get away from it all location yet still providing great places to eat and many places to visit. Cosmopolitan Exeter with its cathedral and beautiful old buildings, some still housing high street shops, is well worth a visit. Tour around Dartmoor in the car, on two wheels or on foot with a map! There are reservoirs, tors, rivers and woods as well as lovely villages usually with excellent tea rooms too.
What makes this Barn unique
We are conveniently located between Moretonhampstead and Chagford, both thriving moorland villages with lots going on. There are good pubs and restaurants, range of local shops, potteries and art galleries, swimming pools and a sports centre and immediate access to the moor. Within a few minutes by car you will be out on the open moor, head to Princetown to see the famous Dartmoor prison, see ponies along the way or stop for tea at Postbridge or Two Bridges.Cross the moor towards Hound Tor and Haytor and of course Widecombe-in-the -Moor with village green, tea rooms, pub and onto Dartmeet, more teas and good river parking. We can provide guests with local knowledge of where to go, especially the little gems that locals keep to themselves! Riding, fishing, cycling, shooting and many other activities can be accessed locally and if we know what you would like to do we can source some information for you and even book activities. Some bikes available, do please ask. The beaches at Teignmouth and Torbay are within a hour's drive, a little further are the stunning beaches and resorts of the South Hams, Dartmouth and Salcombe, Bigbury well worth a day trip. Tour over the moor to Princetown to see the prison and beautiful views and on to Tavistock with its bustling indoor market and unusual shops.
