Kilworthy Rise Annex is under 10 mins walking distance of the historical award winning market town of Tavistock and an ideal place to stay for those wishing to explore the town facilities while benefiting from staying in a rural location. The Annex affords you the freedom and privacy you would expect from staying in an apartment with the advantage of the warm welcome and support you would expect from staying in a hosts home. A self serve breakfast is included and provided in the kitchenette.
“We stayed one night because we were going to an event in Tavistock. The place is a little converted outbuilding, maybe once a garage. It's spotlessly clean and Jane went to a lot of trouble finding vegan breakfast items. It's about 10 minutes downhill to town and a steep walk back but definitely doable. It's very quiet and has everything you need for a short break.”
A great barn conversion with wonderful views of Dartmoor , fully fitted kitchen with wood burner . the garden is fenced all around making it safe for children and pets with seating and a sun canopy.Great for Dartmoor walkers, amazing country side beautiful surroundings, full of history plus are own national trust Lydford gauge, local pubs ,Farm shop,dog walks, also the granite way bicycle route, plus you can walk onto Dartmoor from the barn.
“Wonderful detached converted barn with all the amenities you could want and dog friendly. There is a wood burner, very decent shower and a wonderfully comfortable bed and decent towels. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a washing machine, fridge/freezer, bike storage, private garden and patio, and stunning views. Lydford itself is only a smattering of houses but has a pub in easy stumbling distance and a castle (free to enter) and church to explore. Lydford gorge (national trust) is just round the corner although it was closed 2 out of the 3 days that we were there and most of the gorge was closed off for the winter season. Lydford forest is just down the road and is very pretty and safe to let dogs off the lead. Kim was great and checked that we were OK and was very welcoming. We'll definitely be going back in the spring/summer.”

“Steve and Suzie are really lovely people. They were very welcoming on arrival and made me feel right at home. Their cottage is beautiful and in a lovely setting. My room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The cottage is in a very quiet location so I slept really well. Suzie made me a delicious breakfast each morning and offered to drive me places for a small fee instead of getting a taxi as the taxis are very expensive. I honestly don’t have one bad thing to say about myself, I thoroughly enjoyed it and they even gave me a bag of their freshly picked tomatoes to nibble on my long journey home. Very lovely and thoughtful people! I highly recommend staying here.”
