Tarka Cottage is a characterful cottage sleeping six people and two dogs located in the centre of a quiet village called Sticklepath which on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. The three-bedroomed cottage used to form part of a farmhouse and has been renovated to retain many of its original features including large inglenook fireplaces, stone floors and wooden beams. Downstairs there are two living rooms – one with a solid fuel stove and the other with a woodburning – which provide alternative sitting areas for the whole group, a useful cloakroom and a spacious kitchen/diner with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, small table top freezer and a washing machine. Upstairs, all of the three bedrooms are of a good size and have lovely views over the surrounding countryside. One has an en-suite bathroom while the other two share the use of the family bathroom which has a separate shower cubicle. Outside there is a large communal garden with garden furniture.
Tarka Cottage is a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre of Sticklepath which is known for the Finch Foundry with its 19th century water-powered forge. The village also boasts two pubs – both serving delicious food and both welcoming dogs – a village store and a coffee shop. Oakhampton, with its wide variety of shops, restaurants and cinema is just three miles away and a car journey to the city of Exeter will only take half an hour. The cottage is perfect for walkers and cyclists with the Tarka Trail right on the doorstep. The Tarka Trail is one of the country’s longest traffic-free paths for walkers and cyclists – it follows the route of the old Southern Railway track which halted at Instow Station, linking the village with Waterloo Station in London.
