Loved being able to walk right out on Dartmoor from the driveway. I was there with a group. The place was perfect for us! Cozy, comfortable. Beautiful property and the hosts were great! Mark was wonderful to talk too. Found out so much about Dartmoor and the area!

My husband and I stayed here for a week with a group of 17 like-minded hobbyists. The old stone buildings, lush landscape and comfortable areas outside to relax and enjoy the amazing views from are only part of the charm. Jackie and Mark are the most delightful and accommodating hosts who are so knowledgable about the area both historically and... More

My husband and I were part of a group staying at Blackadon. The owners are a delightful couple and made us feel like family. Our particular plan included wonderful meals prepared by them. The cottages are simple, comfortable rooms, the area beautiful and we loved every minute of this trip.

This is the second time I have brought a group of hikers to Blackadon. Besides the wonderful accommodations, Mark & Jacky Walker are the best hosts! They were attentive to all the needs of this diverse group, offered to make reservations at local restaurants and just went over and above our group's expectations. Mark's knowledge of the nearby area and... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed here 3 times and it is always been fantastic. The cottage was cosy and well equipped, and perfect for a country get-away. We stayed in Stable cottage and it was a perfect size for us. The coast is only a 20 minute drive away, and you can see the sea from the garden area.... More

Had a great stay in one of the cottages. Very clean, spacious, and everything you need. Great location for exploring both Dartmoor and the coast. The very friendly owner had lots of good tips for local and costal walks and laminated maps to go with it. Highly recommended!

We visited Blackadon for a 60th birthday celebration week for our extended family. We ALL had a wonderful experience. The large barn (sleeping 19) was well equipped and comfortable. It was totally relaxing for our family - ages ranging from 25 to 60. We all agreed that we will come together for such an event and would certainly consider returning... More

We were a mixed group of couples, singles, people with children, dogs etc. and what a great venue it is for a group weekend. It has everything you need, bedrooms with bunk beds for older children, cots for younger ones, bedrooms out of the... More

I stayed 1 night with 3 friends in the Stable Cottage, the owners greeted us upon arrival, and although it took us a while to find the lthe cottages, we fell in love with the remoteness of the location and the beautiful surroundings and view of the rolling hillsides and fresh air! The rental was very comfortable, spacious, and clean,... More

We booked the barns for our wedding week last fall and it couldn't have been more perfect. Mark and his wife were extremely accommodating and pleasant. The courtyard was a gorgeous setting for our reception dinner and the view from the picnic area was an amazing backdrop for our ceremony. The area is beautiful, Mark took my family on a... More
