You will find us nestled within the quiet hamlet of Dippertown not far from the ancient,colourful market towns of Tavistock, Launceston and Okehampton. The cottage backs on to miles upon miles of un spoilt countryside and woodlands for you to explore, so you will have plenty of opportunity to relax and unwind at leisure. With easy access to both the rugged dramatic north coast,the soft sandy beaches of the south and the quiet magic of the moors: Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor and Exmoor. You can explore a county steeped in history. Passion Flower cottage is perfect for couples looking for a romantic break away. The luxuriously appointed property is centrally heated with a wood burning stove in the lounge making it snug and cosy. There is an LCD screen TV and DVD,a couple of radios and a bookcase...You will find us nestled within the quiet hamlet of Dippertown not far from the ancient,colourful market towns of Tavistock, Launceston and Okehampton.

About the neighborhood
The cottage backs on to many lovely woodland walks with a labyrinth of public footpaths taking you into the woods and you are able to follow Elder brook that flows through our grounds right into the woods.There is a pine forest close by and endless walks across fields where you can enjoy the spring lambs,cattle,pheasants and if you are lucky some deer.In the village of Lifton there is the award winning Lifton Hall Hotel who serve wonderful Sunday roasts and also have a fun quiz night every other Tuesday.The Arundell Arms is also another good place to eat in the village.In Lifton you will also find the Lifton Farm shop which is a real treat-an ideal place to stock up on vegetables,fruit,meat and wonderful cakes.
Getting around
Passion Flower is in a very rural location and a car is essential for getting out further afield.We are situated in what the locals call the 'golden triangle',right in the middle of Okehampton,Tavistock and Launceston-all being old market towns and of great interest from an historical point of view and for what they can offer the visitor in terms of shops,cafes,museums,cinemas and theatre.
