The Happy Couple


The owners of Three Pound Cottage, the Dartmoor Holiday Home, finally tied the knot whilst holidaying in Lustleigh.  When asked why they chose Dartmoor as the venue, Michaela said “it was the obvious choice following Brian’s proposal at the top of Haytor and where better to honeymoon than in Lustleigh at our Dartmoor Holiday Cottage.”


Michaela and Brian had a relaxed informal ceremony and wedding breakfast at Gidleigh Park.  The evening’s celebrations were rounded off with drinks at their favourite pub, the Cleave in Lustleigh.

Rare find proves Tintagel was a royal seat?

Tintagel, only 55 miles from the Dartmoor holiday cottage, is a great day out

Tintagel (IDS Photos)

A 1,300 year old piece of slate is now on display at Tintagel Castle.

The slate is a rare archaeological find as it is inscribed with a combination of Latin letters and Christian symbols, adding weight to the theory that Tintagel was a royal seat.  Bizarrely it was being used as a window ledge!  Read all about it in the full BBC news story.

Tintagel is only 55 miles away and makes for a great day out whilst staying at our Dartmoor holiday home.  We like to combine it with a morning of Dragon Archery (one of our top 10 holiday must do’s), lunch in Boscastle and dinner at Port Isaac (home of Doc Martin) – it’s doable thanks to the great location of Three Pound Cottage.
