A last minute break found us at Hound Cottage on Holwell Farm, on Dartmoor, an area we had not previously visited. The cottage was delightfully well equipped with a large, open plan, kitchen and dining area, with an adjacent lounge/television area nestleling around the cast iron wood burner.
Three very comfortable bedrooms were complimented by one ensuite and one separate bathroom.
We were greeted by owner Philippa and a new arrival, a day old donkey.
We were blessed with two beautiful days, one walking the moors and Tors and the other visiting Becka (y)? Falls, with the obligatory lunchtime pub visits (highly recommend the Rugglestone Inn at Widecombe where we also fell into a craft fair)
All too brief a visit and whilst our friends stayed on for an extra day, we decided we really ought to return soon.
