"It's a magic moment where you stumble across somewhere that instantly feels right and you know you'll be back. That happened for us when we visited Lower Willsworthy Holiday Cottage. Nestled discreetly down the most quintessially English country lanes, our welcome to the cottage was just what we'd hoped. Freshly baked cake, eggs laid by the resident ducks and hens and a friendly hello from hosts Mike and Sophia. The cottage is beautifully renovated and has its own private courtyard and garden by the river. We enjoyed lunches in the shade by the stream, with plenty of space for my daughter to run wild. The property is spectacular, with views over Dartmoor and plenty to explore without even stepping foot off Mike and Sophia's land. There's the River Tavy, perfect for a picnic or even a swim, or the lake where two pairs of geese and a pair of ducks were raising young when we were there. Sophia was incredibly generous with her time during our stay - ensuring our daughter had the most magical time grooming Jerry the Shetland pony and getting to know Sophia's stunning horses. The experiences we had during our stay are now some of the most special memories of our English holiday. From start to finish, our stay at Lower Willsworthy was superb. There's plenty to do in the countryside surrounding Lower Willsworthy - walks across Dartmoor, characterful local pubs, Tavistock only a few miles down the road, etc, etc. But for a special experience we'd definitely recommend a visit to Lydford Gorge Alpacas in the nearby village of Lydford. We fell in love with this part of Devon. We'd gone in search of a place where we could recharge and left energised and looking forward to our return. Thank you Sophia and Mike."
