We also have a lounge suite that seats five so again you may need take an additional chair into the lounge for larger groups. We have found with our family the kids often prefer to lay around on the carpet :)!! We try and upkeep the property regularly and we have just replaced most beds and all mattresses are new this season. Although all bed linen is provided, we do not provide towels or tea towels. We will have everything under the kitchen sink. so no cleaning materials or cloths etc are needed. Due to the size of the kitchen we do not have a dishwasher. There is a fridge that has a small ice box in it. A new cooker and hob and a microwave. We are situated just outside Dartmoor National Park in the beautiful conservation village of Sampford Courtenay and surrounded by miles of lanes, footpaths and farmland. The property has been entirely renovated by us and primarily for our own use. Consequently, you will find 3 Part Harvey's comfortably furnished as home, not a business, and a thoroughly special place to stay. We have an excellent pub a few hundred yards away called the New inn . The owner and chef used to work in a Michelin restaurant so food is excellent! Please do not come here looking for karaoke and clubhouses. However, if you love English rural life, enjoy high or low-adrenaline outdoor pursuits and appreciate log fires and cider - you will feel immediately at home. We only let a few weeks a year . When we first moved here, 20 years ago, our kids were very small. There are loads of organised or (as we prefer) rather more disorganised things to amuse them too ! The area is absolutely full of history, prehistory, natural history and cool ways to explore them all. We still take our own holidays down here, so please feel free to contact us to ask why.More

Excellent location for visiting all areas of Devon & Cornwall situated in a beautiful 17th century village. Only 9 klms from Okehampton for supermarkets and all your general needs. The cottage is very well equipped & the local pub is just a short walk away.
