We wouldn’t blame you for wanting to spend your days snuggled up, cocooned in this romantic hideaway.

There are several National Trust properties nearby, including Lydford Gorge, Buckland Abbey and Cotehele, all of which are worth a visit!
Sitting between both the north and south coast, a day at the beach is a must. The best spots for surfing are on the north coast at Widemouth Bay, Braunton and Woolacombe or head to the gentler south coast shores of Exmouth, Teignmouth and Shaldon on a blissful summer's day. Alternatively, you can visit Bude on the north Coast in Cornwall. Bude boasts lovely sandy beaches and independently owned shops and restaurants.
Okehampton is the nearest town, where you will find wonderful farm-gate stalls for the fresh local goodies, boutiques, tea rooms and independent shops. Tavistock is also a lovely town, both have weekly Pannier Markets. If you fancy a spot of retail therapy, the bustling city of Exeter is not too far away. With all of this to explore and more, you will love returning back to The Artist's Garret for a candlelit dinner with that special someone.
