Tranquility in Ashwater

Tranquility in North Devon


Cara is surrounded by beautiful countryside from rolling fields and meadows to the rugged Tors and tumbling streams of Dartmoor where Brentor, with its compact church of St Michael de Rupe at the top, can be seen from the front windows

This spacious and luxuriously equipped detached bungalow is close to the centre of the village not far from the village green, and a short walk from the village shop and the Village Inn.  However, it is tucked away where it offers the seclusion and tranquillity that you need to lose the urban stress, unwind and relax.

Cara’s central location means that there is plenty to do and see in the area. A short drive to the West takes you to the long sandy beaches of the Cornish coast at Bude and Widemouth Bay while the raw landscape of the Dartmoor Tors and tumbling streams is only 20 minutes drive to the South. Water sports including fishing, canoeing, windsurfing and sailing are available at Roadford Lake while the Granite Way and Roadford lake provide off road cycle paths.


Directions to Cara







Estimating travel and arrival times can be a bit random. There are always interesting pubs to stop at, lanes to explore, and landmarks to divert to, and that’s after the delays in setting out and unexpected interruptions along the way !

To take the stress out of driving to a fixed deadline, the key to Cara is in a keysafe. We will have sent you the number in the welcome email so that you can get in and make yourselves at home!  Then you can call us – use the landline if you have limited mobile signal – and we will come over and explain the features that you may not be familiar with, like the coffee machine and the hot tub,  and answer any questions to help make your stay as relaxing as possible.

However, to make things just a little bit easier for  us, it would be helpful if you keep us up to date with any arrival time changes during the journey so that we can schedule our time as well.

To help you chill out as quickly as possible after you arrive, we leave you a welcome pack which includes tea, coffee, milk and items for a first breakfast. And if breakfast is not on your agenda, then you can just make up a couple of bacon butties for your day out.

Oh, and a bottle of wine.

We’re also happy to accommodate any special requests that you might have. Perhaps for dietary preferences or to maybe to make that Just-Because break something extra special – just call us and we’ll sort something out for you.
