Discounts available for longer stays . Come and spend the festive season in this thriving Devon town with a fantastic range of gift shops on the edge of Dartmoor... Get away from it all on top of a tor after the exclusive shopping Ashburton offers! Enjoy a log fire in one of the many pubs on the moor. Visit nearby Exeter, Plymouth, or moorland towns such as Chagford and Moretonhampstead.Guest Access: a kitchen-diner-living room, an en-suite double room, a designer garden, on-road parking. A mezzanine platform with double bed and roll top bath. Interaction with Guests PLEASE NOTE- 3 nights MINIMUM stay.. I live in the apartment at times, please contact me with the dates you wish to book and I'll tell you if only one room or the whole apartment is free. When I'm here, I'm happy to recommend services, restaurants, nice walks and places to visit. I can do breakfast and possibly an evening meal on request. Having the whole apartment on a self-catering basis is also possible and happens over summer and festive seasons...The Neighbourhood: A fantastic range of boutique shops, cafes, bars, convenience stores, delicatessens and restaurants. Dartmoor on the doorstep. The beach, Exeter and Plymouth all a half hour drive. Totnes a 20 minute drive. State of the art skate park for young people in the town, and open air swimming pool in summer.Getting Around: Taxis to and from Exeter airport, bus or taxi available from Newton Abbot or Totnes train station. The moor is great for walking, cycling and horse riding, even kayaking. Buses can take you up onto the moor. I can collect from the train station for a small fee. Other Things to Note: Three nights is my minimum stay - this apartment is my home and I pack up my things went I rent it, mostly in holiday season. There are lots of lovely pubs to enjoy on the moor, many with open fire places in winter. Try the Rugglestone Inn in Widecombe in the Moor...More
