This was our 9th visit to Dashel cottage,the perfect peaceful dog friendly getaway in the middle of Dartmoor. Located centrally for many beautiful dog walks, welcoming pubs and tea rooms.
This is a fantastic holiday rental and the owners, who still live on the farm, could not be more helpful.
Place is clean and a great base to explore Dartmoor.
We will be back next year!!!!!
Nestling in its own little personal valley Dockwell Farm’s cottages – Brimble and Dashel – can justifiably be described as an idyll. Away from the hurly burly of busy everyday life this has to be one of the few places left in England where the stars can be seen with total clarity and noise plays no role in the visitors’ lives. The bucolic joys of the location are enhanced by a friendly husband and wife team who, while leaving nothing to chance in terms of the quality of service, do not intrude or fuss over those seeking a restful time. The hosts’ attention to detail is exemplary including such features as: A comprehensive, easy to follow welcome pack (reading it is strongly recommended); well equipped kitchen facilities with every type of utensil anybody could wish for; top quality lined Roman Blinds; libraries that are well stocked with readable books; a wide selection of board games; free WiFi access; washing machines; table tennis; dishwashers; microwave ovens; TV with the widest channel choice I have ever experienced; imaginatively equipped with quality furniture; a private garden; and walls blessed with beautiful prints and pictures. I could list more but, on top of all this, the Hosts even provide a powerful torch for those wishing to walk after dark to listen to the owls and other nocturnal wild life. So, one might say in many ways staying here is home-from-home but I am certain many will decide that Dockwell Farm is much better than home – well mine anyway!
Many thanks to Venetia & Norman for their kindness (they will know what I mean). If we manage to get down that way again in the summer we will definitely rebook. Beautiful place, Highly recommended!
