Tottiford, Trenchford and Kennick reservoirs are about an hour away on foot or a ten minute drive. Also the National Trust estate of Parke in Bovey Tracey is well worth a visit. There is easy access to Dartmoor National Park; highlights include Haytor, Houndtor and Widdecombe-on-the-Moor. Visit beautiful coastal locations in South Devon such as Teignmouth, Shaldon, Torquay and Dartmouth. The cathedral city of Exeter is just half an hour away by road or why not take a scenic railway journey there from Newton Abbot train station.

There are large gardens to explore with additional shared seating areas, an outdoor kitchen (with a wood fired BBQ and pizza oven), a croquet lawn, petanque court and an ornamental greenhouse from which you can observe a large variety of woodland birds feeding throughout the day.  The games barn (with home cinema) has a wood burning stove for cooler days and bi-fold doors which can be fully opened in good weather. Enjoy listening to music on the sound system whilst playing pool, table tennis, darts, table football and traditional pub games with competition standard equipment. Or relax watching your favourite film online or choose a DVD from our extensive collection. As guests you will be welcome to visit the resident alpacas whenever you like.

Bluebells cottage is in a lovely, secluded, wooded valley, though that does mean quite narrow Devon lanes to navigate for a few miles in or out by car. You can walk on footpaths to the local village in one direction, or through shady woodland in the other. The owners are very welcoming and the grounds and on-site services are exceptional.

Lovely dog friendly cottage. Had pretty much everything we needed. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Great fenced dog paddock and dog walks in the woods in the grounds. Useful to note however that there is no fenced garden directly outside the cottage so you cant just let dogs out of the door in the morning or last thing at night.
