About Melanie Stephens
I have been fortunate to be brought up in a small fishing village in the west of Cornwall. For as long as I have known my parents have had the cottage in Devon as a retreat from the bustling summer tourism. This has always been a treasured family holiday home where we could all recharge our batteries together.
Melanie Stephens purchased this Cottage in 1960
Why Melanie Stephens chose Manaton
My parents fell upon this property when touring Devon in their caravan. On first sight they fell in love with this picturesque thatched cottage and we have treasured it as part of the family ever since.

Christmas in the cottage
My sister and I were so happy and comfortable in this beautiful cottage. We truly had a peaceful and restful Christmas, with everything we could possibly need. We slept like logs in the gloriously cosy beds, especially after a day out on the moors.
Everything about the cottage was perfect, from the fabulous log burner to the superbly functional charm of the kitchen.
We were joined by one of our brothers, who lives in Plymouth, which is where we all grew up. Needless to say, we took the opportunity to visit our home city and relive old memories.
Christmas 2018 was certainly one to remember!

Becky Falls a natural waterfall is located in the village of Manaton. The village itself is situated in the Dartmoor Natural Park and there are plenty of walks from the front door through the local countryside and rugged moors. It's a nature lover's haven with plenty of fine watering holes nearby for those more interested in sampling good country meals and ales.
