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.
Mardon Cottage could not have been more perfect for our stay- the kids loved having their own little play loft full of toys and books, as well as a barn with ping pong and other activities. The parents loved not needing to occupy the kids at all! We could relax in the backyard and watch the bird feeder with a cup of tea. There was plenty to keep us just busy enough on our holiday- a walk around the little lake on the property, or a nice easy bike ride (even our 3 year old managed it!) to the lovely local pub.

We chose Butterdon for a late winter/ early spring weekend break for the location - peaceful, remote, good walking and cloae to Exeter where our daughter is studying, so she could join us for the weekend. It was ideal! The cottage was charming and had everything we needed. Vicki and Gavin were welcoming and helpful. It’s a great area for walking andvery dog-friendly.
Quiet and picturesque - perfect place to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Caban was comfortable with a great little wood burner for a chilly evening. Outdoor fire pit was a good size for cooking and to warm up after a long day of walking. Surrounding area has plenty to offer - we enjoyed exploring a few of the local walks through Fingle woods, Castle Drogo and Moretonhampstead. A welcome book was provided to inform of many more walks/activities which are available.
