Horrabridge

The holiday cottage is located in Horrabridge, a riverside village twinned with Tilly-Sur-Seulles in France. It is located right next to the beautiful Dartmoor National Park in the county of Devon and the bridge itself is the oldest in West Devon.

The village spans the four parishes of Buckland Monachorum, Whitchurch, Sampford Spiney and Walkhampton and the name Horrabridge means "bridge on the boundary". The medieval bridge which spans the River Walkham in the centre of Horrabridge has a salmon leap and is the oldest bridge in West Devon.

With a combination of old world charm and modern facilities Horrabridge serves as an excellent base for your Devon or Cornish holiday. From the village there are peaceful views of fields and hills with sheep grazing and in warm weather children swim in the river close to the bridge.

Tavistock

Tavistock Golf Club is a ten minute drive from Moor's Edge Cottage. Its unique features include being located in an area of outstanding beauty, thin soil makes the greens lightning fast but they also drain quickly and allow year-long play, and nature provides its own hazard with patches of gorse and bracken. http://www.tavistockwharf.com

The Wharf, Arts and Entertainment Centre is in nearby Tavistock. It has been described as one of the Jewels of Tavistock. Built in the eighteenth century The Wharf has been converted into an arts centre with theatre, concert hall, cinema and art gallery, plus coffee shop. http://www.tavistockwharf.com

The market town of Tavistock can trace its history back to at least AD 961. Tavistock is the main town of Dartmoor's western moor and is an exceptionally attractive town, owing much to some fine Victorian architecture and its picturesque location on the banks of the River Tavy. There is no shortage of shops and cafes, plus Tavistock is home to the purpose built Pannier Market - a must for every visitor. For other details see http://www.devonguide.com/Tavistock/.
