5 Guests

3 Beds

Melrose Cottage is located on Station Road in Okehampton. At one end of the road lies Dartmoor, with access (about ten minutes walk away) for hiking, biking and exploring. At the other end of the road (about five minutes walk away) is the centre of Okehampton, boasting numerous pubs, coffee shops, restaurants, supermarkets, a cinema and other amenities.


Melrose Cottage itself is nestled away, set back from the road in a quiet location, with plentiful off-street parking. Secure bike storage is available.


Upstairs is an open-plan living space, with a stunning bright conservatory dining room, a modern, well-equipped kitchen and a living area to relax with a coffee and magazine or watch a bit of telly. A small balcony can be accessed from the living room. The entire space benefits from high ceilings and is awash with natural light.


Downstairs, you have a spacious king size master bedroom, a double bedroom and a single bedroom. There is a larger bathroom with a bath (including shower over the bath), in case you want to have a relaxing soak after your Devon adventures. There is also another, smaller bathroom with a shower.


Melrose Cottage is family friendly. For those with younger children, travel cots, high chairs, stair gate, and plastic cutlery and crockery can be provided.

Unfortunately the property is not suitable for dogs (although we do love them and have our own) – sorry about that.
