Compass Cottage

Nestled in the pretty hamlet of Higher Brimley within Dartmoor National Park, Compass Cottage oozes charm and character as well as being a convenient base from which to explore both Dartmoor and the South Devon coastline. Situated just 1.5 miles from the welcoming market town of Bovey Tracey, this semi-detached thatched cottage enjoys elevated views across the Teign Valley. From the doorstep, numerous walks or bike rides can be enjoyed along the country lanes and across the National Park to several of the most spectacular local Tors (Haytor only 1 mile) or alternatively Widecombe-in-the-Moor or many of the South Hams and Torbay beaches are a short drive away.

Compass Cottage offers quintessential, characterful and comfortable accommodation. Thick walls, beamed ceilings, a country style garden and a superb granite fireplace inset with a wood burning stove to snuggle up in front of are just a few of its delights. This idyllic retreat will appeal to both families of three as well as couples.


To the front of the cottage, there is a small pretty garden with a patio area and garden bench. From the rear parking area approximately 12 uneven granite steps lead down to the cottage back door through a delightful sunny country style enclosed terraced garden which is grassed and planted with mature shrubs. Guests may use the summer house, and the rear garden also boasts two recliners, a bench as well as a table with chairs for al fresco dining.
