“Wonderful House in a Gorgeous location.”
Reviewed February 25, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We had a fabulous Holiday in Down Cottages . Set in magnificent secluded grounds. It is well equipped, extremely comfortable and cosy. It is well situated, with Chagford a short drive/ walk away and lovely walks on Dartmoor from the doorstep. Very friendly and helpful owners. Would definitely stay again.

Down Cottages is a wonderful home from home. Set in magnificent secluded grounds. It is well equipped, extremely comfortable and cosy. It is well situated, with a shortage walk from Chagford and lovely walks on Dartmoor. A delightful place with hospitable owners. We will certainly return. Wendy and Robert

“Beautiful house in a stunning setting”
Reviewed September 7, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Even though it can accommodate up to 5 Down Cottage still presented big value for money with just three of us staying here. The house is very tastefully furnished with a lovely dining room downstairs, a comfy sitting room upstairs and plenty of space. It is set in beautiful grounds of Dartmoor oak woodland and formal gardens, and far reaching views of the Dartmoor island hill of Meldon. Only a mile to Chagford. Can't wait to stay again!

Delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the surrounding area. Just to say though as helpful information for future travellers, Down Cottage can sleep a maximum of 4 guests in 2 bedrooms, as opposed to 5 guests.

“Beautiful setting!”
Reviewed August 25, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Beautiful location. Down Cottage is close enough to Chagford for convenience, but in the countryside with all the gorgeous vistas and quiet surroundings. The cottage is well appointed, clean, and the owners were attentive when needed but clearly respectful of privacy. They also have beautiful dogs, and for someone such as myself, a dog lover, this was a benefit!
Walks on the grounds down to the river are quite special.

Chagford was a surprise and delight. From the shops, church, locals and dining all very welcoming and superb! Transportation recommendations; Dartmoor Safaris, owner Cyril, for day trips on Dartmoor and all areas. Local taxi, Peter, number available through Down Cottage.

Highly recommend Down Cottage, Chagford and especially Dartmoor!

“Relaxing and comfortable in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed June 28, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a wonderful week at Down Cottage in early June. The cottage was very comfortable and in a stunning setting. We were lucky to have perfect walking weather during our stay and we made the most of this by exploring the moor and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
The owners were particularly hospitable, made us feel at home and allowed access to their beautiful garden. All is managed and maintained to a high standard.

“Live like royalty”
Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is more a castle than a cottage, with every comfort and elegant furnishings. Very spacious. The views and the expansive gardens are incredibly beautiful. We were encouraged to explore and hike, as well as to soak up the sun from the kitchen patio, in privacy. Set on a narrow country lane with mature trees, a rocky river, and birdsong, it is also near a friendly and gentrified village with all the facilities and supplies needed.
