Very comfortable and clean cottage with everything we needed for our stay. Welcoming hosts, who helped us with local information and suggested interesting places to visit during our stay. Local pub is very near and very good, and there are shops and other amenities nearby, as well as scenic walks and beautiful countryside.

Lovely place. Lovely village. Well placed for exploring the area. Pub almost crawling distance! Stunning walks all round. Welcoming and friendly host. Well appointed and very pretty cottage. Easy access for less mobile. Couldn't ask for more for our short break.

“.....and Flosi came too!”

My wife and myself spent a few days at the lodge in mid April and Flosi our dog was a welcome visitor too!

We had a really good time in this well appointed property, nicely decorated and superbly located. We have been visiting Dartmoor almost every year for the last 26 years and have stayed in a number of location and used various accommodation and I think I can fairly say this has been the nicest both from the quality of the accommodation and the location. It's in the heart of the village of Buckland Monachorum, and to make things even better the weather was lovely.

The property has great facilities including wifi and a cafetière (most essential) , very comfortable bed, well appointed bathroom with a nice shower. It was also good that items like salt and pepper and washing up liquid were provided.

Andrew and Carol were very friendly and of course so was their dog.

The local pub The Drake Manor Inn was just across the road which always seemed to be busy and provided us with a meal one evening.

I would really recommend this accommodation its on the edge of the moor, close to Plymouth and the coast, and in a very nice part of Devon.

Liked best: The location
Liked least: It was very hot for the days we stayed and as the lodge had night storage heaters there was a delay in being able to turn down the heat, however, this could be because I'm not used to night storage heaters

“Beautiful cottage in lovely village”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Very welcoming hosts. Lovely spacious, modern, comfortable cottage with a very good pub opposite. Buckland Monochorum is a pretty little village in a picturesque area with lots of walks, ideal for the dog. There appears to be a regular bus service which connects to Yelverton from where you can travel to Tavistock or Plymouth. Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and hope to go back again.
