Description from manager

This immaculate single storey cottage is in an incredible setting and sleeps up to two people in one bedroom.Foxgloves is an immaculate, single storey cottage just a short walk from the River Tavy and Lopwell Dam. The breathtaking Lopwell Dam and nature reserve can be found on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park and the location is nothing short of idyllic - a haven for wildlife. The Bere Peninsula Cycle Route runs nearby, and the Tamar Discovery Trail begins at Lopwell, offering excellent walking and cycling in a stunning rural landscape.

The cottage shares with the friendly owners two acres of grounds, which were formerly part of Lord Roborough's 6000 acre estate. You are welcome to explore or simply enjoy the beautiful views from the private patio. Inside, Foxgloves is beautifully finished, and thoroughly well done - a perfect choice for that 'special occasion'. The lounge is warm and spacious and the kitchen well equipped, though you may be tempted by the delicious lunches served at The Old Pump House cafe on the banks of the Tavy nearby.

Amenities: Underfloor heating. Electric cooker, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer. TV/DVD, WiFi. Bed linen and towels included free of charge. Off road parking for two cars. Extensive garden shared with owner and private patio. Regret no pets. No smoking. Pub 1 mile. Shop 3 miles.

Region: Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Town: Surrounded by Dartmoor, the South Hams and the South Devon coast, Plymouth offers both heritage and beauty. Wander the narrow streets with their shops, restaurants and art galleries and down to the Barbican quayside. Visit the Hoe with its view across the harbour and where Francis Drake played bowls as the Armada sailed into view. Tour the Plymouth Gin distillery, watch a show at the Theatre Royal or go to the National Marine Aquarium. There are boat trips around the Sound and Naval dockyards, watersports at the Mountbatten Centre and the city centre shopping. The tors of Dartmoor, beach resorts of Torbay, stately homes and gardens and coastal scenery of South Cornwall can be reached in under 45 minutes.
