During the winter months I am happy to offer special rates for 4-night, mid-week breaks, Monday to Friday, especially for couples and small groups. Please ask.
Furzeland Down Cottage is newly renovated, refurbished and furnished and new to the holiday letting market.
Tastefully decorated in neutral shades it comfortably sleeps seven people (There is a comfortable folding bed for an eighth guest if required, at no extra charge).
There is a 4' 6'' double bedroom on the ground floor, a 5' double bedroom, and a twin bedded room with two 3' singles on the first floor, also a curtained cabin bed in the mezzanine bedroom. This bed would delight anyone but certainly encourage any youngster to look forward to bedtime (it comes with a wind-up torch),
The cottage is set in a beautiful, private location with wonderful views and walks, just five minutes from the ancient stannary town of Tavistock and village of Yelverton and twenty minutes from the City of Plymouth.
This is a great base for foodies, with fabulous walks, horse riding, cycling and sight seeing.
There are lots of great local National Trust properties and beautiful gardens to discover such as Buckland Abbey (home of Sir Francis Drake) or The Garden House which are both at Yelverton, Cotehele at St Dominic or Castle Drogo at Drewsteignton.
Perhaps you'll choose to enjoy a delightful walk through Bellever Forest or Wistmans Wood, taking in the clapper bridge at Postbridge followed by a delicious Sunday roast at one of the many foodie pubs or perhaps a trip to Morwellham Quay or Lydford Gorge. For the children perhaps a trip to The Dragon Archery Centre at Okehampton, or a day at the Tamar Trails Centre for zip wire rides through the woods, biking and canoeing or a family picnic and bike ride around Burrator reservoir.
During the Summer months have a cooling swim in the pool before taking off to explore the area, come back and enjoy a barbecue in your own private garden or a game of backgammon at the pool bar before changing and going out to one of the great local restaurants, bistros or pubs (and if you enjoy yourself too much there are plenty of very friendly, reasonably priced taxis we can recommend to bring you home).
Have fun, relax and enjoy yourselves.
