Bramblemoor is ideally positioned on the southern slopes of
the Dartmoor National Park, to offer a most varied holiday at
any time of the year. The cottage is detached, being situated
near to our own, yet completely private, with its own
entrance. Both cottages are set within three acres of secluded
grounds, overlooking the steeply wooded Webburn valley, a nature
reserve (A Site of Special Scientific Interest - SSSI), and
backing onto open moorland. The garden is shared with visiting
deer, badgers and a wide variety of birdlife. The owners'
animals (including goats, tame sheep, hens and ducks) are managed
within the Environmentally Sensitive Area Scheme (ESA), organically.
Within a mile are to be found deep pools for swimming in the River Dart,
fishing, and excellent riding stables with trekking facilities. This is
ideal walking country, and guided tours with National Park guides begin
from a spot nearby.
The nearest shopping centre is Ashburton an attractive small Stannary town(5 miles) Widecombe (3miles) has 2 pubs. Poundsgate has its own pub.
Historical interest can be found in Totnes, Dartington and Tavistock,
all within fourteen miles, whilst the larger towns of Exeter and Plymouth
are within thirty minutes drive. Torquay is the nearest sea-side resort
at sixteen miles distance, and the spectacular South Devon coastline can
easily be explored on day excursions.
