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.
Nestled between two barns lies The Hayloft, a chic reverse level property which offers a touch of luxury as well as an abundance of class. The open plan living area not only boasts a lofty vaulted ceiling but also a floor to ceiling window providing stunning far reaching views across rolling South Devon countryside all the way down to the sea. The centrally located dining table makes best use of this view and ensures that every meal is a wondrous occasion. After a long day of exploring, make use of the elegant roll top bath and the beautiful upholstered feature winged bed to revitalise any aching limbs.
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 spacious entrance hall with bench seating, coat hanging and cupboard with washing machine and tumble dryer. Stairs lead up to the first floor open plan living area which boasts a light and airy vaulted ceiling as well as a large feature window with stunning long distance views. Lounge area with large four seater sofa, TV and DVD. A modern gloss kitchen with an induction hob, built-in oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge with freezer compartment is complemented with the dining table to comfortably seat four guests. Bedroom 1with 5ft king bed, chest of drawers, open hanging and en suite cloakroom with WC and wash basin. To the ground floor, a wonderful nights sleep will be enjoyed in bedroom 2 which is furnished with a beautiful and striking upholstered winged king bed and wardrobe. A sumptuous and luxury bathroom is adorned with an elegant roll top bath, separate shower, twin wash basins and WC.

We had a lovely stay. Everything and more than we expected. Thank you for the welcome milk and cake. . I did have to sort out the tumble dryer and washing machine after previous tenants.
We had a fantastic time very tranquil and relaxing.
We loved our stay. The location is amazing, right next to Hay Tor it's so quiet and peaceful but really close by lots of things to do. We couldn't fault the cottage and felt very comfortable and at home there. The welcome cake and fresh milk was a lovely touch and perfect after a long drive. Thank you.
Had a lovely stay. Walking out of the property on to Haytor Rocks was a great advantage. Very peaceful location & only a short drive to Widdecombe. Would certainly visit again.
The comments about improvements in no way detracted us from enjoying our stay and holiday. We love Devon and have stayed in various cottages over the years but this was by far the best we have stayed in. To walk out of the door for an early morning or evening walk on the moor without having to drive was absolutely fantastic and we will definitely be coming back.
Jane the owner is most welcoming. All of her rentals are superbly decorated with a personal touch. It's the most relaxing place we have encountered. The surroundings are peaceful, calming and inviting. The orangery is stunning!
