Cabin in Dartmoor: A quaint cabin with a breathtakingly beautiful view. This humble abode looks out to the famous Haytor and it positioned in the most peaceful paradise.

Room With A View has the added benefit of being dog friendly, so there's no need to leave your beloved pooch behind. The enclosed garden is the perfect place to let your four-legged friend off the lead. There's plenty of space in the garden to enjoy a lavish lunch time picnic or to find the idyllic quite spot to read a good book.
