Cottage
A cozy cottage in the middle of the old village of Bridford. This is a delightful place to take a break, with an open fire in the living room and a woodburner in the kitchen-diner. The main bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there is another larger bathroom too. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern facilities. There are wonderful views from the cottage and lovely walks right from the doorstep. The traditional village pub is only a short stroll away, and there are a host of excellent pubs and restaurants in the neighbouring villages. The local scenery is spectacular! There is fabulous walking in the area and lots of beautiful towns and villages to visit within easy reach....A cozy cottage in the middle of the old village of Bridford.

Scenery cottage is located in the typical Devon village of Bridport, close to Dartmoor and some wonderful walking country. The cottage is comfortable and well-equipped, within a short walk of a good pub with excellent food and real ales. It's the perfect location for a...More

Property is lovely if you can get by without WiFi or phone signal! Fantastic views from the bedroom, friendly neighbors too. Little bit difficult to get to (down a single track road) but well worth it when you get there.

I think we mentioned you had stayed there just before we refurbed it. There are new carpets throughout the entire cottage (April 2016) and have we have redecorated every room . We think you would approve.
