Foodie Heaven

Tavistock has regular farmers markets but as befits somewhere that has been recently voted both Best Food Town and Best Market Town in the UK – there are some wonderful food shops: Crebers the Grocers, Country Cheeses which Mary Portas raved about in the Telegraph Magazine, a great fishmonger who comes down from Clovelly on Tuesdays and Saturday, Vines selling a wonderful green grocer and provisions, proper butchers who sell excellent locally reared produce or de la Torres which specialize in North African and Mediterranean food.

Consequently the kitchens at all our cottages are extremely well equipped to satisfy the most exacting of chefs who enjoy cooking with excellent produce with a local provenance.

If you want great food but would like someone else to prepare it for you, we work in partnership with De La Torres who make fresh pasta which we organise to be there for your arrival.  Please look at their website for further details and say that you are staying at one of the Dartmoor Holiday Cottage Co. cottages so we can arrange collection/delivery for you.

We are spoilt for choice when eating out and we are happy to recommend and organize bookings at the many excellent local restaurants. These include the EndsleighThe Horn of PlentyThe Cornish Arms, the two Michelin Star Gidleigh Park and The Dartmoor Inn at Lydford.

The Government has said that self-catering holiday homes will be able to re-open for guests from 4th July. 

The health and safety of our guests is our paramount concern so we are going over and above Government guidelines for cleaning and protection from Coronavirus.  We are extending the time between guests departure and arrivals and have doubled our cleaning staff, additionally we have invested in an anti-viral fogging machine*.  By fogging the entire cottage we will ensure the cleanest possible space for your holiday. 

None of our cottages share communal facilities and as you will see on the website the cottages are not only in a beautiful part of the world, perfect to recharge your batteries.   

We have also updated our cancellation policy so if you are unable to take your holiday because of state restrictions on travel you will be able to receive a full refund or postpone your booking without financial penalty.
