Self Catering on the edge of Dartmoor
Things to do
Sally's holiday cottages are ideally situated for walkers, cyclists and horseriders and for exploring Dartmoor National Park.
Lydford Gorge, Lopwell Dam, Buckland Abbey, the Garden House at Buckland Monachorum and the historic market town of Tavistock with its award winning farmers market and pannier market are among the many local attractions.
Coast and beach
The north coast for surfing and bodyboarding and the sandy family beaches at Looe and Whitsand Bay on the south coast are also within easy reach.
Cycling & Walking
The National Cycle Route 27 ('The Granite Way') passes through North Brentor close by The Smithy and Thorn Cottage. Also Drake's Trail, a 21 mile walking and cycling route from Tavistock to Plymouth, offers scenic routes over Gem Bridge and through Grenofen Tunnel.
There are excellent pubs within a short drive. We can personally recommend The Peter Tavy Inn and The Castle Inn in Lydford. The Royal Standard in Mary Tavy and the Mary Tavy Inn are both within walking distance of The Smithy and Thorn Cottage. The 16th Century Who'd Have Thought It Inn is just a short stroll from the Bolthole.
