Welcome to lovely Penny Cottage! Stunning south facing views of rolling hills. Comfortable and homey annexe cottage with its open plan kitchen/dining/living room, and garden space for outdoor dining and relaxing. Located in quaint Devon village (EX67HR) with many beautiful from-the-door walks and walking distance from local friendly (award winning!) pub and church. Truly a place to escape and have a wonderful time. Very kid friendly village with play park and woodland.

The space

Penny Cottage adjoins the main house (Pound Cottage) in which we live. Downstairs, there is an open plan kitchen/dining/living room. There are large sliding doors maximising the beautiful view. Outside, there is a small patio garden for dining and relaxing in. The annexe garden is connected to the garden of the main house, which is not for guests' use but does add to the sense of space and beauty. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering (note there is no freezer or dishwasher). It also has a washing machine. Upstairs, the bedroom and bathroom are located (these have velux windows and are very bright but do not have the view). The main bed is a double and can be separated into twins (it has a special zip feature that means it becomes a proper double, not two twins simply pushed together). There is also a single bed in a mezzanine area. For those requiring more than three beds, an additional single futon bed could be provided. Alternatively, the sofa in the living room can be converted into a sofa bed. There is ample cupboard space for storing clothes. The bathroom is modern and bright with a large walk-in shower.

Guest access

A home from home with parking for two cars, its own garden, kitchen, washing machine and bathroom.

Interaction with guests

We live in the adjoining house and will be available most of the time if needed. We can provide lots of ideas and inspiration for things to do and places to see. A warm welcome on arrival, and if desired, a friendly dinner all together may be possible.

Other things to note

The house is ideal for three (e.g. two in the king size/twins and one in the single). One extra could sleep on the sofa bed in the living room if desired. As the annexe garden adjoins the main garden, we ask that guests remain in their garden space and maintain respectful sound volume.

Fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tony and Fran's cottage. It's set in a beautiful location and the cottage was clean and comfortable - you couldn't ask for more.

Gorgeous cottage, well equipped, light airy and clean. Great view from the house, set in spectacular Dartmoor. And a warm welcome from our hosts and their neighbours. Highly recommended.

This house is super equipped, there was no need for us to bring anything extra for the kitchen, plenty of pots, pans and utensils. They even have a bread maker and rice cooker. There isn't a TV which is clearly stated when we booked, so we brought our own! My only disappointed was that the internet was temperamental but aside from that, we had a great time down in Devon. Fran and Tony are superb hosts!

Penny Cottage is absolutely delightful, the perfect mix of character with modern amenities. The accommodation is very clean, comfortable, spacious, especially the bedroom and the bathroom is simply gorgeous. The view is breathtaking and we enjoyed relaxing,listening to music and reading whilst gazing at the the view through huge glass doors. The kitchen is well equipped and the washing machine was much appreciated! We enjoyed having our breakfast on the sandstone paved patio also overlooking the view. There are some absolutely beautiful walks located in and around the village and the Bridford Inn is a lovely friendly and welcoming county pub with great pub grub! Tony and Fran are warm, helpful, friendly and couldn't be more accommodating especially with our various requests. Nothing was too much trouble and our family had a memorable and enjoyable holiday where we created many new memories. Fran was a font of information in regards to places to visits and things to do. We recommend Drago Castle loop walk down to Fingle Bridge, Chagford Village, Dunsford Steps Bridge walk and the walks located in Bridford itself.

Excellent! A fantastic view, comfortable accommodation and truly helpful and friendly hosts. The location is great for exploring Dartmoor and further afield while the village and surrounding countryside is worth coming for itself. Not to mention a great pub serving good food with a friendly atmosphere.
