Close to the Devon/Cornwall border and only a couple of miles from the west side of Dartmoor, Chillaton is an attractive very peaceful, rural village in the heart of the Devon countryside. Little Forda is a charmingly converted and very comfortable former dairy attached to the 15th Century country house of Forda, set in its own enclosed grounds on the edge of the village. Only 6 miles from the ancient stannary town of Tavistock, close to the wonderful Lydford Gorge, (for gourmets the Horn of Plenty is a mere two miles) Little Forda, with its very welcoming owners, cosy and attractive beamed rooms and with very spacious and safe gardens, is an ideal base for a family holiday. This is very much a family home with a games room, free range chickens (and eggs!) swings and a wendy house. Pets made welcome.
