Please note that the upstairs rooms have partially restricted height due to sloping ceilings. Outside, there is a small lawned area, and patio furniture and a BBQ are provided. A travel cot and highchair are available. A maximum of two dogs are permitted (there is an additional charge of £25 per week or part thereof). Due to livestock in nearby fields, please keep your dog on a lead at all times when outside the cottage. Although only minutes from the A30, the location is very peaceful and lies approximately 1.5 miles outside Dartmoor National Park, close to the villages of Sticklepath and Belstone. The nearby town of Okehampton has a range of shops and supermarkets, a museum, cinema, sports centre with swimming pool, and a golf course. Dartmoor is unsurpassed for walking, cycling and riding, and there are numerous National Trust properties in the area, including Finch Foundry, Castle Drogo and Lydford Gorge. More

About the neighborhood
Acorn Cottage is located on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park, approximately 3.5 miles from the town of Okehampton, known locally as 'The Gateway to Dartmoor'. The area is famous for its beautiful rugged landscape and is an outstanding area for walking, cycling and horse-riding. The nearby villages of Sticklepath and Belstone boast three pubs and three cafes between them. Nearby National Trust properties include Finch Foundry, Castle Drogo and Lydford Gorge. There are also numerous beautiful gardens locally, open under the NGS Yellow Book scheme. Other activities include golf and swimming, either in the public baths in Okehampton and Tavistock, or at one of the many wild swimming locations on Dartmoor.
How to get there
I will send you detailed directions of how to find the property when you confirm your booking. Public transport is very limited, as it is a rural location, so it is recommended that you come by car. Acorn Cottage has its own parking space, with parking for additional cars also available (please advise in advance if you are bringing more than two cars).
