Grooms Cottage has been sensitively adapted from its previous use as an annexe to a well-known hotel and blends perfectly into its tranquil woodland setting. It is also admirably suited to being the venue for a large party renting the two cottages together, as Carriage House, in the building adjoining Groom's Cottage, has comfortable seating for up to 12 people.

Hidden away in a woodland clearing in the idyllic grounds of a private country house, the cottages are an oasis of complete peace on the south east edge of Dartmoor National Park.

The setting belies their easy access to the huge variety of attractions and amenities of this popular holiday area. The Moor itself offers walking, riding and fishing amid spectacular scenery, whilst unrivalled coastal attractions are less than an hour by road – beautiful cliff walks, hidden coves and exhilarating sailing in famous estuaries such as Salcombe and Newton Ferrers. The cities of Exeter and Plymouth are also easily reached, as are countless excellent restaurants and a particularly wide variety of places of historic interest, many of them National Trust properties such as Compton Castle, Killerton House, Cotehele (just over the border into Cornwall), and the very unusual and interesting Castle Drogo, right in the Moor itself.

A particular bonus for guests is that game fishing (salmon and sea trout) can be arranged on a private, productive and highly regarded stretch of the River Dart, which passes through the grounds. The outstandingly beautiful area of woodland and riverbank (an SSSI) below the cottages is also available for guests to walk and picnic in - a rare privilege.

The Davenport family, May 2016

Thanks again for another fabulous week at Groom’s cottage - we had sunshine everyday with temperatures of 10-12 degrees - we all - dogs, children, grandchild, enjoyed the comfort and warmth of the cottage at the end of each day.

Mrs Jones & family, March 2016

Fantastic location. Beautifully furnished, spacious cottage

Lovely location on a country estate accessed by a private road through the woods. Downstairs a very well equipped kitchen and large eating area with a spacious lounge with cosy fire. Upstairs: 3 spacious bedrooms with amazing bedding and duvets and 2 bathrooms. Plenty of room for 2 adults plus 3 teenagers and very well located to explore Dartmoor.

Absolutely fantastic. Bowled away by cottage, grounds, scenery - the best Dartmoor has to offer...and we only live 25 miles away!! A definite place we want to return to.
