LOCATION North Harton Cottage is set in an elevated position close to Lustleigh Cleave. It is in a secluded and private setting off a shared private driveway and well off the public road.

This wonderful rural location gives unrivalled opportunities for outdoor recreation but remains accessible to everyday amenities. The village of Lustleigh is approximately 2.5 miles away. Lustleigh is often described as one of the prettiest villages on Dartmoor, with beautiful thatched cottages and winding lanes. St. John's church and The Cleave, a popular pub set in a 15th-century thatched building, are at the very heart of the village. There is also a superb general store and post office known as The Dairy, a tea room, village hall, preschool and a community orchard with a playground. The village, situated in the heart of the Wrey Valley, has long been a popular hot spot for walkers and those who are seeking a quintessentially British village.

Within a 15-minute drive are the local market towns of Bovey Tracey and Moretonhamsptead for daily essentials. With its antique shops, cafes, artisan bakery and award-winning fishmongers, Ashburton is also close at hand. Historic market towns of Chagford and Totnes are a 20 and 40-minute drive, respectively, both with a range of independent shops, stores and markets.

Despite its rural position, Lustleigh is readily reached by road. The A38, also known as the Devon Expressway, is a short drive away and provides good access to Exeter in addition to connecting to the A30 and the M5. Newton Abbot is situated on the Great Western railway offering access to London Paddington with a journey time of just over two and a half hours, calling at Reading, Taunton and Exeter.
