Why holiday in Lustleigh, Devon
Voted “best Dartmoor village” and “best village in England” 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.
The village orchard is an enchanting place perfect for picnics, exploring, dipping toes in the stream or just chasing a ball around! The orchard plays an important role in village life, it host’s the annual May Day fair where the May Queen is crowned as well as the Boxing Day rubber duck race. It is also the start of many wonderful walks.
With the stunning Lustleigh Cleave, Hisley Woods, Haytor, Pullabrook Woods and Becky Falls close by, Lustleigh is ideally situated for walkers of all abilities who are looking to explore Dartmoor literally from their doorstep. For ideas of good walks please take a look at our Suggested Walks on Dartmoor, many of which are circular walks from the front door of the holiday cottage.
If you need a rest from the stunning scenery, there is lots to see and do in and around Lustleigh. However, if you do feel the need to get out of the village, Haytor, Hounds tor, Jay’s Grave, The 10 Commandment Stones and Bowerman’s Nose are just a short drive away. As are the towns of Moretonhampstead, Bovey Tracey, Chagford and Ashburton if you need a bit of gentle Dartmoor bustle.
With it’s easy road access, Lustleigh is also the perfect base to explore both South and North Devon which offer dramatically different coastlines, stunning beaches, quaint fishing villages and seaside resorts.
