Vacation Rental Description
Homeleigh is a 19th Century cottage in the centre of the peaceful Dartmoor village of Bridestowe. It retains many of its original features with large, stone fireplace and oak beams in the spacious living room. The small, secluded garden comes complete with patio and picnic table. Just a stone's throw from the local pub and shop, the cottage has views of the open moor only a mile away. Conveniently positioned just a few miles from the market towns of Okehampton, Tavistock and Launceston, the village is a perfect spot from which to explore the delights of Dartmoor National Park, while the beautiful north coasts of Devon and Cornwall are only 45 minutes drive away. Bridestowe lies on the National Cycle Network and is very close to the Granite Way - a delightful Cycle Path on the old Okehampton to Tavistock railway track. The historic village of Lydford with its famous gorge and castle is only 3 miles away. The cottage has oil-fired central heating and the added advantage of a cosy open fire for those colder evenings.
