Large dog friendly house sleeping 16 for family holidays and weekends in beautiful countryside near Dartmoor

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Coryton House, Coryton, Okehampton, Devon, sleeps 12-16 in 8 bedrooms.

Coryton House is an elegant Grade II listed former Rectory. It is in a sheltered sunny south facing position above sheep filled fields. It looks across the exceptionally peaceful and beautiful Lyd valley, and is hidden away from the summer tourist traffic and the world in general. The house is ideal for getting family and friends together with space for plenty of privacy but great opportunities for having fun together.

The house is on the side of the valley with terraced garden and wood above, and fields below. The sunny terrace is sheltered from the wind but has expansive views; and is also a fabulous spot for star watching at night.

The garden and woodland are full of camellias, snowdrops, bluebells, wild garlic, and hydrangeas. In the summer the swallows twist and turn above the garden in gangs. At night the bats take over. The owls hoot all around the year!

Most of the furniture has been in our family for generations and much loved. There are family portraits, modern art, and school photos spanning more than a century. We have a growing collection of exotic and funny hats which you can borrow while you are here.

The studded front door has huge bolts. The stone flagged entrance hall has space for dog beds, wellies and walking sticks, and the large loo has a splendid view.

The dining hall is 40' long with warm wooden parquet flooring. The dining table seats 14 but can be extended to 20. Comfy seating in a Knole sofa and deep armchairs around an open fire. Huge mirrors reflect the chandeliers.

The large south facing sitting room has a wood burning stove and a leaded window with long wooden window seat and radiator underneath. There is a big bookcase with a range of books, including local guides and maps, board games, playing cards, and jigsaw puzzles.

Beyond the dining room is a slate flagged kitchen ready for a horde: 4 door AGA, 2 Belfast sinks, and 2 dishwashers. Pantry with deep freeze and another tall fridge. The kitchen table seats 10-12.

The house has 8 bedrooms (4 ensuite), 6 bathrooms and 2 downstairs cloakrooms. Lots of coat hooks and boot space by back door. Washing machine, tumble drier and drying racks.
