A Special Place for Peace and Tranquillity
A warm welcome awaits you at Peartree Cottage, a charming two-bedroom, self-catering cottage standing in the 2-acre grounds of Howards Gorhuish, close to the village of Northlew, near Okehampton in Devon. Okehampton being the Gateway to the Dartmoor National Park and it's dramatic landscape! We are a family-oriented business, offering comfortable accommodation at affordable rates.
Our cottage is ideal for countryside lovers who just want to get away from it all. It is ideal for those who enjoy cycling, horse riding, golf, fishing, or walking the many footpaths and trails, not forgetting of course, the wonderful South West coastal path, exploring the coves and quaint fishing villages along the way.
You may also rest in the private garden of Peartree cottage or the adjoining wild flower meadow whilst watching the swallows swoop and dive in the summer and the starlings gathering for their winter roosts.
Listen to the wonderful birdsong. Wonder at the skies at night and enjoy the ambience of this beautiful corner of Devon.
There is a separate laundry building in the Old Cob Barn Studio which also provides overflow accommodation for the cottage (i.e., a studio apartment). The garden has a private patio and steps leading up to a lawn with feature shrubs and wonderful colours for most of the year.
It is our pleasure to provide a relaxing space for our guests. We will ensure that they have a truly wonderful, restful, peaceful, and enjoyable holiday in our cottage and its grounds situated in an unspoilt, rural part of West Devon.
Peartree Cottage is regularly assessed by VisitEngland. They have designated us a Gold Award standard and 4-star rating for several consecutive years since becoming affiliated with them in 2012. Our agents, English Country Cottages and Cottages4You, have also awarded us 4-star rating. We have also received their Customers’ Choice in 2016 and 2017 from Cottages.Com. We aim to retain these standards, maintaining excellence in cleanliness and comfort.
We value our environment and surroundings and strive to recycle as much as possible to provide a safe, protected habitat within our wild flower meadow for wildlife, particularly butterflies, bees, and bunnies!
