Single holiday let sleeping up to 4 guestsWe have used our own experiences of staying in holiday cottages to help us to refurbish Old Style Cottage. So... you will find it spotlessly clean and well thought-out! It has all the charm you would expect from a 17th Century, Grade ll listed, thatched cottage, and is set in the little village of Jacobstowe, near Okehampton. Dartmoor and the Tarka Trail are close by and it is an ideal place from which to explore the coastlines and countryside of north and south Devon, and Cornwall.
All the original features of this delightful cob and thatch farm cottage (beams, window seats, fireplace with bread oven etc) have been enhanced by the convenience of a modern kitchen and bathroom, and we have included those small details which we have so often found missing when staying in cottages (hooks on the bathroom door, somewhere to put your toilet bags etc.) We live next door and want you to want to return!
