This converted former farm building is within view of Dartmoor National Park’s most famed beauty spot and well loved ancient tor, Haytor Rock, and now provides three fantastic holiday properties. They have been sympathetically converted and beautifully styled and furnished with a blend of warming moorland colours and cosy soft-furnishings which are complemented with modern luxury amenities.
Haytor View, the end barn will delight both families and couples alike. As the name suggests, it boasts unrivalled views of Haytor Rock from several of its rooms. The light and airy stylish dining kitchen leads down into a comfortable lounge area with French doors opening out onto a patio and garden with views over the meadow in front.
Rural, yet not isolated, the peaceful location will dazzle the senses for those seeking outdoor pursuits as well as those wanting a restful holiday at any time of year. Each of the properties boasts stunning views across open wild sweeping moorland as well as across rolling Devon countryside towards the sparkle of the South Devon coastline. Dartmoor ponies are likely to nuzzle at the property’s gate. Whether on foot or on bike, there are endless routes straight from the front doors, and the many mysterious Dartmoor tales will captivate the imaginations of all ages. The historic quarries at Haytor are just a short walk away, from where you can follow the Haytor Granite Tramway, tracing the route to the coast used when granite was exported during the late 18th Century. For cyclists, Haytor is a regular Tour of Britain stage. For more restful pursuits there is a fabulous cafe bar offering delicious local goodies, a wonderful Dartmoor Inn and restaurant, and a National Park Visitor Centre that will equip guests with plentiful local information within a short stroll of the barns. Just slightly further afield, within a mile or so, there is a well stocked farm shop as well as a selection of picturesque village inns and tearooms; and just beyond that a wider selection of amenities are found within Bovey Tracey. Beyond Dartmoor, the shops, theatres, and cinemas of Exeter are not far away. Day trips to beaches in Teignmouth or South Hams offer a great alternative for a fun day-out.
The front door opens into a stylish open plan dining kitchen – a great social space! A contemporary glass topped table comfortably accommodates six. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with a selection of appliances to include an induction hob, built-in oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. Three steps lead down into the living areawhich is furnished with a comfortable corner sofa, tub chair and bean bag as well as a TV and DVD. French doors open onto the garden patio. To the other side of the front door, ground floor bedroom 1 boasts a 5ft king bed, views towards Haytor and an en suite shower room with large shower enclosure, washbasin and WC. To the first floor, a spacious landing is furnished with a table and chairs from which enjoy a quiet relaxation space and a view towards Haytor Rock. Bedroom 2 overlooks the garden and is furnished with a 5ft king size bed and TV. Spacious bedroom 3 has twin 3ft single beds and has views of open moorland. All bedrooms are equipped with a chest of drawers and open hanging rails. A modern family bathroom has a bath with shower over, wash basin and WC.

This property has wow factor! Ideal for our family group with grandparents downstairs in en suite bedroom and ideal family accommodation upstairs. So well thought out and so cosy for an October/November week. All the electrical appliances worked well (in our extensive experience this is unusual!). We had amazing weather and, of course, the views are to die for! We’ll be back.
We loved our stay. The house is well priced, in an excellent location (although there was quite of bit of road noise on the road side of the house) and suited us well. We would love to return. Have checked for next Christmas but seems to already be booked - please advise.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and had a fabulous holiday. We cannot fault the property, location or the service from Toad Hall Cottages. We were very impressed. We would definitely use Toad Hall Cottages in the future and have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends. Many thanks.
Yes, it was exactly what we wanted being right on the moors
Fantastic place,so beautiful and peaceful , Everything was perfect for us and my girlfriend and me had a great time, We would love to return at some point.
We had a very good time at this holiday cottage and look forward to being there again soon. Thank you so much!
The cottage is in a fabulous location and comfortably equipped. Showers are excellent. Provision of vacuum cleaner and mop was much appreciated with two dogs. Plenty of maps and information about the area. Ullacombe farm shop and butchers was a great place to shop, the pasties were delicious and made a perfect packed lunch when we were walking.
This was my 5th stay at Haytor View and as always, very comfortable and welcoming. Our only problem is with getting enough hot water in the morning for 3 showers. I find myself having to get up at 6.30 am to shower first and then allow the system to recover before my children get up. Waiting for hot water means we are late getting out in the morning. Apart from this, we love our stay ay Haytor View and will be returning at Easter.
We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at Haytor View again. We are delighted to hear you have booked another visit and speaking of which the owner is delighted to confirm that with regards to the hot water there is a new system in place now which eliminates the need to wait for the water to reheat so there will now be enough hot water for everyone! We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Haytor View at Easter!

Fantastic position as we wanted to walk on the moors and it was also handy for other areas of South Devon. Barn had been converted to a very high standard and it was a real 'home from home'. I cooked most nights and it was very well equipt and a large Sainsburys was only down the road at Newton Abbot. We would like to return to this property at some stage.
A fabulous location, with Haytor and Dartmoor on your doorstep. We loved the tranquility of the location and the property. This is our second stay at Haytor Barns and it will not be our last!
We loved this accommodation and will be returning in August (booked). The one item I would really like to be included is a clothes airer for drying washing. Many thanks
We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at Haytor View. There is a clothes airer at the property which is kept in the under stair cupboard - we will ensure that a note of where to find this is added to the guest information folder. We hope to welcome you back to Haytor View soon. Best wishes, The Toad Hall Team.
