Having stayed in many cottages throughout Europe and the UK I can say that this is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. The cottage was very well designed and equipped, we felt home immediately we arrived. The owners Masha and Luke got the information / meet & greet just right. The location is perfect, great relaxing walks from the front door, and very short drives (5-6 miles) to some interesting locations like The Garden House, Tavistock and walks along the river Walkham further down stream. Dartmoor is not a part of the UK we have visited, it very nice without being too "touristy" so we will certainly be back.
Huckworthy is a charming cottage set in the beautiful Dartmoor countryside. The cottage is so well equipped with everything needed for a perfect stay and the owners (who are lovely) are very helpful being nearby but it also feels extremely private. The local pub was open again which was fantastic and it all felt very "normal" given we were there on the first weekend that Covid restrictions relaxed. Can't recommend this cottage highly enough.
Another lovely stay at Huckworthy. The hosts are truly lovely people who go out of their way to ensure you have the best time. Thanks to them!
Lovely break over New Year. Cottage very comfortable and well equipped. Beautiful walks straight from cottage. The goodies awaiting us on arrival were very much appreciated, really nice touch. I would definitely consider staying here again.
Beautiful location. Extremely well furnished cottage. Luke and Masha plus Tess were so accommodating. We had a great time walking out from the cottage.
Don't tell anyone else about the cottage as it will get too booked and we want to stay again.
A beautifully finished and superbly equipped cottage in a gorgeous location. Ideal for walks from the door step and exploring the West Devon area. We loved our week here and already planning a return visit.
We stayed in Huckworthy cottage for 8 splendid nights. Excellent facilities on a wonderful farm. Approached via Devon's beautiful lanes, really quiet and peaceful. Ideal for walking and visiting gardens and national trust properties across Devon. It was easy to visit both north and south coasts and Dartmoor is on your door step. We walked to Burrator reservoir from the cottage. Enjoyed a gig at the Wharf in Tavistock and had an excellent meal at the Bedford hotel. You must visit Lee Bay near Ilfracombe, Appledore and Bideford are wonderful on the north coast, Devon guild of crafts at Bovey Tracey is a must, and Overbecks NT overlooking the Salcombe Estuary has sublime views and a wonderful garden. But our favorite is The Garden House at Buckland Monachorum.
We got married in Tavistock and booked all three cottages over the week of our wedding in July 2018. We had the most amazing week – Luke and Masha (and Max too!) are the perfect hosts and couldn't have done more for us. We could not recommend these cottages more. The setting is beautiful, the cottages are immaculate and the owners are the loveliest people you could meet. It was the perfect week, made even more special by Luke and Masha, and we wish we could do it all again :)
A fantastic stay, very modern and well maintained property. Very friendly owners and awesome location.
A beautifully presented cottage in an ideal location for Dartmoor and other places of interest. Welcoming host. Would highly recommend.
If you want a relaxed comfortable stay... Look no further!
We had a perfect long weekend at Huckworthy - the cottage is very well presented and spotless, and also very well equipped. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and would love to return soon.
Luxury accommodation in beautiful surroundings Owners very helpful 5 stars all round
Overall, an excellent cottage experience for us. Huckworthy is very well situated within Dartmoor - all of the main attractions are within a 30 minute drive. The cottage itself is warm, comfortable, modern, well equipped and a great place to totally relax.
It is the best cottage we have been in and we found Luke and Masha very friendly and helpful. Luke helped me when I had a blow out and not only helped me change the wheel but also gave me clear directions of the local ATS garage. We would definitely go back and Luke did show us the other cottages in case more family wanted to come. We went out in the day and usually relaxed and cooked local food in the evening. Although my holiday seems long gone I will have warm memories of this one for a long time to come. Thank You
Charming, modern and spotless
Possibly one of the best cottages we have stayed in. Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. Very high spec. Lovely touches on arrival at the cottage of wine, fruit, cheese, milk, home made bread and flowers. Quiet location and plenty of places to visit not too far away. Supermarkets within 10 minute drive.
It exceeded our expectations. Everything was first class! The cottage is beautiful, the owner couple was lovely and helpful, all the animals were lovely, the place is an oasis for stressed-out urbanites.
This is a beautiful high spec property - it was like staying in a 5 star hotel! a fantastic location especially if you are planning a walking holiday - great walks on your doorstep and so peaceful. I highly recommend it.
Yes, 'Huckworthy' Cottage has been beautifully restored and gratefully saved! Architecturally stunning both on the inside as well as the outside, with all mod cons and sumptuously comfortable, but it was also the owners who made us feel welcome, especially with their little touches, like the flowers in all the rooms, the 'Mr & Mrs' card, the bowl of fruit, the cheeses, the milk and most importantly, especially after the drive, a bottle of red!
We know we didn't explore as much as we should have, especially with a Chocolate Lab, but after our wedding it was the most perfect retreat and what we needed!
We will be back, hopefully this year in October, for longer with newly acquired extended family and will explore more this time, even on walks from the actual Cottage! As it's situated within Dartmoor National Park, peacefully secluded, down a quiet quaint lane but easily accessible and never far away from whatever you're looking for and/or to do, you'll feel like a local before you know it!
Thank you so much again!
Huckworthy cottage was a beautiful hideaway, we spent most of our time relaxing in the cottage. What was a brilliant surprise is that the local supermarket is only 15 minutes away and the owner also have a book stocked full of recommended local shops. The cottage held the heat really well there wasn't a single time we got cold. We also did a bit of stargazing and you won't be disappointed it was amazing. I can't recommend this place enough, it's a perfect for a retreat to the countryside.
Huckworthy has been elegantly and efficiently equipped to a first class standard which makes a stay in this unblemished location both relaxing and memorable.
It is a lovely modern cottage in a beautiful location just inside Dartmoor National Park. Long walks right from your front door and close to Tavistock and Yelverton. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering so we ate in every night! Would highly recommend to a couple looking for a small romantic hideaway.
This is a lovely hideaway, tucked into the valley with easy access to walking and cycling on Dartmoor. The rooms are immaculate and we received a great welcome.
Lovely stone cottage converted to a very high spec, spotlessly clean, and beautifully furnished, they have thought of everything. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, without being at all intrusive, and you arrive to a great welcome collection of home made provisions and wine. The area is beautifully scenic, remote and peaceful, though with plenty to do if you feel energetic. We didn't! Thank you for a great holiday.
On arrival Luke & Masha were there to greet us and explain the set up,and after a long drive it was a lovely to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and put our feet up and relax in what is a beautifully thought out country cottage " Top Marks" Martyn & Jane
A lovely little cottage set in woodland perfect for any couple who enjoys tranquility. Encompasses an exceptionally clean, modern setting within the surrounding countryside. Very thoughtful owners whom provided their own produce, fresh fruit and bread, wine and flowers upon arrival. They were also very private, but accessible if need be, respecting us but also being friendly. Additionally, a folder containing local restaurants, takeaways, walks etc was provided upon arrival helping us organise our stay. Also, a fantastic internet connection for somewhere so remote. Highly recommended!
