The Details...

Soak up the mysterious beauty of Dartmoor’s wild, untouched scenery, from this Grade II-listed hideout in the quaint village of Lustleigh. Nestled amongst flourishing fields and rich, rural landscapes, Uphill Coach House is a tranquil retreat for couples, friends and families. Follow the ancient trails through Dartmoor National Park, admiring the alluring valleys, tumbling waterfalls and crumbling castles. Craggy stone tors pierce the dramatic, open moorlands, and are joined by rare and beautiful wildlife darting amongst the magical, soaring woodlands.

Uphill Coach House is in the heart of this magnificent parkland, and was once a working coach house for the adjacent manor building. Beautifully restored to maintain its original 19th Century features, it is now a luxurious country escape with contemporary home comforts. Look out for its thick timber beams and its rustic floorboards or its exposed stone walls and sink-in furnishings. Handmade throws and underfloor heating are on hand for those cold, winter months, while the private, south-facing garden is perfect for catching some summer sun.

The main living accommodation can be found on the first floor of the coach house and includes an open-plan living and kitchen area and two en-suite bedrooms. There’s a modern, county kitchen with plenty of mod-cons, overlooking a farmhouse dining table and a cosy sink-in sofa. Massive windows capture captivating views and flood the room with warm, natural hues. There are DVDs, books and games to keep you entertained, along with walking guides and maps to help you plan out your days.

Two peaceful, en-suite bedrooms are set at either end of the living area, one with a sumptuous king-size bed and one with two comfy singles. Both are finished with soothing colours and plush, designer bedding, while the master en-suite bathroom even has a quirky open ceiling.

Days can be spent immersed in the wilderness of Dartmoor National Park, walking its endless trails and foraging in the towering woodlands. Protected castles and country estates are folded into the landscapes, along with windswept beaches, pretty woodland and historic market towns. The sleepy village of Lustleigh is just a short stroll across the fields and has a thatched, local pub and a charming Devonshire tearoom. Bovey Tracey and Ashburton are also just a short drive away and are famed for their independent antique stores and gallery displays.
