Great Cleave is the largest of three 4 star cottages at East Underdown. The cottage was once part of a threshing barn which dates from the 17th century. This modern barn conversion of upside down design retains many of its original roof beams and trusses in the high ceilings of the sitting room (15ft to the apex). This creates on one side a double bedroom and the other a gallery which is popular with children. The gallery also has a futon which can be an additional bed.
There are 4 double bedrooms, (3 on the ground floor) 3 bathrooms (one is an ensuite shower room), dining/living area which can accommodate up to 16 diners (the capacity of all 3 cottages), gallery seating area, Freeview, DVD, VCR, fully equipped kitchen including range master double oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, woodburning stove (wood provided).

My wife booked this place for a short three night stay over Xmas with her family who are all Devon based. The accommodation is spacious and well appointed - it worked perfectly for us and Barbara was very helpful throughout.

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...
