Lewdown

The village is a picture of bucolic bliss, positioned on the fringe of Dartmoor National Park between the plunging hills that separate the valleys of the River Lew and River Thrushel between Okehampton and Launceston.

Records state that Lewdown was one of the earliest villages built by Saxons in the region, and rumour has it that the first King of England held court here around 931AD. These days the rolling, woody landscape gives a bygone feel and allows visiting ramblers to form an idea of what life could have been like in ancient times. Little Devon towns dot the area: Gunnislake is on the Cornish border, a former mining village not far from the start of the River Tamar. Bude, Boscastle and Tintagel are Cornish coastal towns offering beach days not far by car.

For provisions, the ancient market town of Launceston is just off to the west, while Tavistock to the south has plenty of independent boutiques and markets, including the well-stocked pannier market. The Tamar Valley provides great walking routes and Lewdown isa skimming-stone throw from Roadford Lake so pack a picnic and head for the great outdoors with the whole family to wandered around the woody terrain, keeping an eye out for the sundial and cob shelter before returning to your luxury self-catering cottage.
