Drewsteignton, Dartmoor National Park, Devon, England
Nestled in the middle of rolling Devon countryside and on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, East Underdown is the perfect place for a family holiday or a quiet romantic getaway.

The three cottages were converted from 17c barns. Walkers enjoy a choice of trails within minutes of the cottages. For families, there is much to do within a short drive. While we enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside, we are three miles from the A30 and very accessible to the rest of the South West.

All guests have unlimited access (8a-10p) to our indoor, heated pool with current machine and sauna (£1/hr). We have added free Wi-Fi. There is a fenced, green play space for children, and even big kids enjoy our games room with a snooker table, darts, table tennis, table football.

The cottages have their own private patios with picnic tables and barbecues...

We took a party of 17 people for Easter, using all 3cottages. Barbara our hostess was great: very helpful and kind and always cheerful. The weather was not particularly kind to us, but it did not seem to matter, lots of fun was had with volleyball in the lovely warm pool and a lot of fun using all the games...

Management response:

You are very kind. Many thanks.

About the neighbourhood
Dartmoor National Park is one of the last wilderness areas of Britain -- moorland landscape, wild ponies, ancient settlements -- great walks. Also easy access to Exmoor, and either the rugged seascapes of North Devon and Cornwall or the milder Channel shores of South Devon. 3 miles from Chagford (old stannary town known for its shopping and nearby walks), 10 from Exeter, 8 from Okehampton.

We are within 10 miles of three 18 hole golf courses including Bovey Castle. Only an hour from the Eden Project. Children love the Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhampstead (5 miles) and the House of Marbles at Bovey Tracey (12 miles).

Five minutes from the last castle built in England -- Castle Drogo. 13 miles from Exeter and Exeter University. On a typical day at East Underdown you could talk a sho...
