A special place that used to be an old bakery full of character with a wood burner in the lounge/diner, a good sized bedroom with kingsize bed, spiral staircase, original beams in the kitchen & a sweet garden with sun trap behind the house to enjoy.

The space

This is a special place with a wonderfully quirky, cosy yet spacious feel to it. Great place for a couple or single person wanting to explore the area and/or recharge some batteries and escape from life's busy schedules. Also would be a fun place to come with a young family although will need to bring a stairgate! Plenty of space for a cot, travel cot, child's bed or z-bed, all which can be provided and made up if requested.

Guest access

Guests have full and sole access to the house and private garden although neighbours have open access to certain paths and areas close to the backyard/garden.
Due to this being a cottage, some of the doorways are under 6 feet high so care needs to be taken if you are tall!

Interaction with guests

I enjoy meeting guests but if not possible a key will be left in a key safe. Will need to communicate clearly to arrange key collection as password will change from time to time.

Other things to note

The mid-terraced cottage is situated on one of the main routes into South Brent village centre and is opposite a Napoleonic wall as the road narrows...
Free Parking can be found 150 metres away after stopping on a single yellow line to unload luggage 20 metres from the house.

Great base to explore Dartmoor. Cottage is lovely and fully equipped, pubs and shops just out the door, and Wendy is friendly and helpful.

A really lovely cottage, beautifully decorated, very homely. Totally fell in love with the wooden floorboards and feel of the place - a great space to spend some time in and relax! Kitchen was full of equipment and there was plenty of wood for the fire. Had to park a little way from the house but gave us the chance to see the local waterfall! Shops nearby and so are lots of other attractions. Wendy and Chris were very welcoming, leaving delicious jam and bread to welcome us. Caring and communicative hosts who we would be happy to airbnb with again!

We'd throughly recommend this place. We had a great stay, the cottage was spotlessly clean and had just about every kitchen utensil one needed to hand. Bathroom is lovely and the squishy white towels made it feel just like a posh hotel. Wendy is a wonderful and thoughtful host, who went out of her way to make us and our small child comfortable. The toys in the cot (and the plug socket covers) were a lovely touch. If you're looking for a cosy home from home with some lovely quirky cottage characteristics - this is certainly the place to stay. We will definitely be booking again. Thanks Wendy - you're a star!

Had a lovely few days away in a welcoming warm cottage that was comfortable, clean and relaxing. A Home from home trip. Definitely worth a stay as on the out skirts of Dartmoor, and central to the A38 Thank you

A beautiful and very well equipped cottage. I wish our house was this organised and beautifully decorated! South Brent is a great place to stay, with a very good selection of shops for such a small town. Wendy was a fantastic host and went out of her way to help us.

A lovely cottage in south Brent - very homely and clean with a good bed! I slept like a log! A lovely break away from it all - thanks Wendy! Alex

Wendy is a very lovely host. she welcomed us with a big smile, and a fresh loaf of bread. We also got a lot of useful tips what to do in and around south Brent, and how to reach the city via public transport. this has been very helpful. the cottage as such is sooo cozy, furnished with everything one might need during holidays, even for people who prefer self-catering. the place is ideal for two people exploring Dartmoor, and so is south Brent. It has been a brilliant stay in the cottag, which I can only highly recommend.
