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 with the daily catch from Plymouth, butchers selling locally sourced 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 offer a range of high quality seasonal home-made dishes. An example menu which can be pre-ordered for your arrival or prepared for you during your stay.

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, Hugh Fernley Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen and The Dartmoor Inn at Lydford.

Or for a relaxed night in here are some of the options from our in-house menu...

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 the Corona Virus.  We are extending the time between guests departure and arrivals and have doubled our cleaning staff, additionally we have invested in a 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 they are also located in an area of the country which has been relatively unscathed by this.   

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.
