The Potting Shed

Welcome to The Potting Shed, a cosy 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.
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.
Pull on your walking boots and you can be on the open moor in 10 minutes. We are on the 100-mile Dartmoor Way, close to the Two Moors Way, the Tarka Trail and many more fabulous routes. 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.
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.
