Clifford Barton Holiday Cottages - 2 bedroom cottage (sleeps 5) nestled in the heart of the beautiful wooded Teign Valley on Dartmoor - next to National Trust's Fingle Woods (850 hectares of footpaths, wildlife haven, mountain biking), set in 50 acres private nature reserve with 2 acre lake. Private fenced garden. Great location for kids and adults for walking, cycling, wild swimming, golfing and fishing.
The cottage was beautiful, so comfortable and well equipped. The cake and apple juice on arrival was a lovely touch. It was warm and cosy - I wish our wood burner was as good as the one in Mardon! The birds on the bird feeder were a delight. Overall a great location, great cottage and great experience.
We were delighted to find Butterdon cottage every bit as attractive as it looks in the pictures on the website. Despite some bad weather during the week it was generally snug and cosy, though the larger bedroom wasn't as warm as the double one and could perhaps use some supplementary heating during the colder months. The location is perfect for walkers, with a beautiful wooded private valley literally on the doorstep, and Fingle Woods and the River Teign just down the lane. The garden birds were also a highlight - the feeder outside the living room window provided lots of entertainment. Altoge...more
