About this listing

Off the beaten track yet within easy reach of local pubs, The Gamekeeper’s Cottage is a self catering retreat for solo adventurers or couples looking for a romantic luxury getaway in North Devon, close to Dartmoor and the beautiful North Devon beaches.

During the day open up the French doors and relax in the garden on luxury sun loungers, listen to the bird song and enjoy the peace and quiet. In the evening snuggle up in front of the fire pit in the garden or in the cosy sitting room in front of the log burner.

The Location

The Game Keeper’s Cottage is perfectly located for many great spots in North Devon. From the stunning white sands at Saunton Sands to picturesque seaside villages such as Appledore, Clovelly and Bude to the world famous Dartmoor.

Dartmoor offers beautiful walking trails, wild swimming spots and cycle tracks, as well as the popular activity of letterboxing. It’s a great place to view the many vistas of Devon from the top of one of the 160 tors that dot the landscape.

Guide books and walking routes are available at the cottage, and we are also happy to recommend our favourite spots.

On the doorstep of the Game Keeper’s Cottage are some lovely walks that take in local sights, such as Buckland House, and give stunning views across to Dartmoor on a clear day.

The Tarka Trail is a 10 minute cycle away and provides a lovely, accessible cycle track that travels from Braunton to Meeth. RHS Rosemoor and The National Trust’s Castle Drogo are also close by and are popular with locals and visitors alike.

The popular market town of Okehampton is around 30 minutes away where you’ll find local amenities including a Waitrose.

A visit to Lundy Island is a must while staying during the summer months. A boat trip can be organised from Bideford or Clovelly. During the trip you may be lucky enough to see seals, dolphins and puffins.

Great Torrington is 15 minutes away which is situated on an inland cliff top with steep drops to the River Torridge which has lovely riverside walks.

Bustling towns to visit all within 30 to 60 minutes away are Barnstaple, Exeter and Tavistock. Offering shopping, places to eat and historical buildings.

Please note:

The hosts have two dogs, they’re well trained and won’t come into the cottage or private garden –  but you might see them whizzing around the garden from the comfort of the Game Keeper’s Cottage. They also have two cats, three chickens (but no roosters!), and a rabbit.

Check in and check out are on Mondays and Fridays in low season and only Fridays in high season.

  • The Perfect retreat away from it all. We loved it here. Debbie and Des are so thoughtful and nothing is too much trouble.
