The Potting Shed

Cosy cottage
The Potting Shed, a bijou retreat in the heart of the pretty moorland village of South Zeal, within the Dartmoor National Park. The Potting Shed is small but perfectly formed and great for one or two people to stay in complete compact comfort. It's cosy, well-appointed and detached, and sits within a private garden, overlooking the veg beds and next door to a working farm.

Dogs and Dartmoor go together and well-behaved dogs are welcome.

An entrance lobby for coats and boots leads into an open plan kitchen, living area and bedroom, plus a walk-in shower room. The Potting Shed is perfect for a short break or longer holiday and, with our special discounts, the longer you stay the better the price!

The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge and small freezer compartment, two-ring hob, a combi-oven offering convection, microwave or grill cooking, a separate slow cooker, cafetiere, all cutlery, crockery and cooking pans and utensils. Everyone needs a cuppa when they first arrive, so you'll also find tea, coffee, fresh milk and biscuits!

The living area has a TV with Freeview, an extendable dining table and a selection of books and games.

The bedroom area has a wardrobe and two small chests of drawers and a very comfortable double bed. All bed linen is provided and the bed will be made up ready for you.

The walk-in shower room is completely tiled and is perfect for a post walk freshen up! Towels are provided.

Dogs and Dartmoor go together and your well-behaved dog is welcome to stay. The Potting Shed can accommodate one medium to large dog or a couple of smaller ones. If you plan to bring your dog, it must be at least a year old, and do please mention it at the time of booking. You will find that a great many pubs, cafés and attractions are dog-friendly and Devon generally rates very highly for welcoming woofers.

There is a small, enclosed garden area where you can sit and admire the view. South facing, it's a real suntrap and a lovely spot for al fresco dining. It's also a secure area (up to 3ft high fencing) to let your dog roam.

Pull on your walking boots and you can be on the open moor in 10 minutes. There are so many miles of moorland and woodland and river to walks to explore, you need never take the same walk twice. Whether you want a serious hike or a gentle stroll, it's on the doorstep.

We can offer bike storage in one of our outbuildings, but bikes are left at your own risk.

You'll find a welcome basket with a selection of local products as a 'thank you' for booking.

The village shop is 80m away and stocks everything you might need to knock up a feast in the kitchen. If you don't want to cook there are two good pubs in the village. The King's Arms, just 50m up the hill, is a friendly local serving good pub food.

There is free parking very close by and there is also a regular bus service to the village.

Access is easy, we are just 3 miles off the A30.
