Interaction with guests
I'm normally pottering around as we live next door, so when you arrive, keys will be in the door and scones will be ready for you to munch on after your long journey to get here! I'm always around either in the house or the Gallery so I'm on hand if you need or can be busy if you dont need me.

We had a great time at Hof cottage. The cottage is very cosy and has the perfect size for two. It was spotless, all new pieces of furniture, a small but fully fitted kitchen and a large shower. Siobhan was the perfect host, very helpful...More

Cute, cosy and comfortable digs, ideally placed in a hidden gem of a village. The hosts are terrific, too. Highly recommended.

About the neighbourhood
Northlew is a pretty former market village with many Grade II listed buildings /thatched cottages, surrounded by stunning scenery around the foothills of Dartmoor.The village can be found approx. 7 miles north west of Okehampton with its castle ruins (and Waitrose!) and 5 miles west of the ancient town of Hatherleigh (and its Ruby market every Tuesday). Bude and the North Cornish coast is 24miles west. The exclusive Dartmoor town of Chagford is 22 miles east, Launceston (15miles) and the pannier market town of Tavistock (18 miles)- to the South. Northlew is therefore in the middle of no-where but is central for everything!We have 1 general store where you can buy essentials, a post office on Fridays, a lovely pub - The Green Dragon where you can enjoy a good pub meal and local ales &... more

If you are coming via A30 its best not to take the first exit to Okehampton but the 2nd one- Sourton cross exit. Turn right onto A386 follow for a mile or so to first roundabout after the Manor hotel, turn right , keeping on the A386 you come to another roundabout where its signposted left to Northlew. Then after following the road for 200yards or so, 2nd left turn- again signposted Northlew and & the Grange. Follow this road for next 4-5 miles and you will arrive at Northlew. There is parking for 1 car at HOF Cottage.
