Why holiday in Lustleigh, Devon
Voted “best Dartmoor village” (2012) and “best villages in England” (2014) by the Daily Telegraph.
Lustleigh is a truly beautiful Dartmoor village packed with thatched ‘chocolate box’ cottages and a warm welcoming community. There is a 15th century thatched pub serving fine ales and good food, quaint tea room, village shop full of local produce as well as every day essentials, a 12th century church and a children’s play park within the village orchard; all a stone’s throw from the holiday cottage. It’s no wonder that Lustleigh has featured in several TV programmes such as “Escape to the Country”.
The village orchard is perfect for picnics, exploring, dipping toes in the stream or just chasing a ball around! It also plays host to the annual May Day fair where the May Queen is crowned. The May Day festival is one of Lustleigh’s most enjoyable events and draws many visitors to the village to enjoy traditional May Pole dancing, Morris dancing and a BBQ. The biggest event by far is the Lustleigh Show held every August Bank Holiday.
With the stunning Lustleigh Cleave, Hisley Woods, Haytor, Pullabrook Woods and Becky Falls close by, Lustleigh is ideally situated for walkers who are looking to explore Dartmoor literally on their doorstep. For ideas of good walks please take a look at our Suggested Walks on Dartmoor, several of which start and finish at our holiday home.
With it’s easy access, Lustleigh is also a perfect base to explore both South and North Devon which offer dramatically different coastlines, stunning beaches, quaint fishing villages and seaside resorts. Teignmouth and Torquay are only a 30 – 40 minute drive from our holiday cottage.
