Luxury Dartmoor cottage on quiet private lane. South facing garden, own parking

Family-friendly cottage in Newton Abbot with water park
Underbow Cottage is situated inside Dartmoor National Park. It is a detached property on the far end of a quiet, dead end lane. Previously, it was a five bedroom, former coach house. In 2015 it was lovingly restored by an interior designer. The latest photos are from spring 2019, so it's kept to a high standard. However, it's still quirky and full of character. It was changed to a three bedroom with three ensuite bathrooms. Hence, it's spacious, and light whilst allowing everyone privacy. The view from the top floor across Dartmoor is stunning!

There are three bedrooms -two rooms with kingsize beds and a twin room with two single beds. All the beds are fully made up with 100% luxury cotton waffle duvets and white fluffy towels.

In the solid wooden kitchen there's everything you need including a new large Rangemaster (Aga) cooker(7 ring gas hob/2 fan ovens) and masses of John Lewis crockery, glasswear and cutlery. The kitchen is well stocked with all sorts of kitchenware to make cooking easy.

The sitting room has a wood burning stove to pump out masses of heat and there's full gas central heating radiators throughout the rooms, so everywhere is inviting and cosy. There is wi fi throughout and four flat screen televisions (two with integrated DVD players) in the house. It has been filled with masses of books, DVD's, puzzles, board games and toys. There's even a set of train tracks, a wooden farm, and doll's house in the top floor cupboard.

Underbow has its own first floor, sunny south facing, fenced garden. It's not overlooked and has stunning views over Dartmoor. It is located at the end of an extremely peaceful, private lane but is only 200 metres from Moretonhampstead's centre.

Parking is a premium in Moreton but Underbow has ample private parking for two cars, three at a push, as you tumble out the front door. Well behaved dogs will be considered only if requested on booking. There are plenty of circular walks straight from the door.

Underbow's central location, in the bustling working village of Moretonhampstead, belies its quiet location. If you fancy eating out there are lots of cafes, restaurants and pubs to choose from. If you want an indulgent treat Bovey Castle or Gidleigh Park are only a few miles away. Moreton has a supermarket, tourist information centre, chemist, pottery, hand-made shoe shop "Green Shoes", felt coffin maker "Bella couche", car museum, art gallery "Green Hill" and gin distillery "Papillion" - all less than 300 metres away from the cottage. Most importantly Dartmoor National Park is on your doorstep. If the sun is out Moreton's open air swimming pool is right there. There's so much to do for an enormous range of tastes and of course the Tourist Information is right there if you need any help.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and DVD players. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit, bidets and hairdryers. Guests can surf the web using complimentary wireless Internet access. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

Home from home
An endearing cottage in a welcoming town on the edge of Dartmoor. Great place for adults and dogs. The cottage has everything you might want, including sharp knives, comfort, and a wonderful Harry Potter convenience under the stairs. We enjoyed the food at the Hart and the Union pubs. Have a good appetite before you go. Make sure you have the ice cream and visit the butcher - pies recommended. Dartmoor gin is made here and generously a bottle was placed in the cottage for us. Such fantastic hosts. Thank you

Beautiful cottage in lovely location
This has possibly been one of my favourite rentals in Devon. The cottage was immaculately presented and fully equipped for all your needs. Lovely views from the bedrooms and comfortable beds. We were a party of two teens, 2 adults, a dog and 2 elderly parents. Having our own bathrooms was brilliant as well as a downstairs toilet - very useful. The kitchen was well equipped, although we ate out most of the time. Only a short walk into the village where there is a handy Co Op and a pub serving good food, including a great Sunday roast, yet the property itself is down a very quiet little lane. 5 star!

A well-equipped property conveniently situated. Would return in a heartbeat.
We had three generations in our party and all guests loved the property and the surroundings. A treat - and home from home. Thank you.
