A stunning converted barn in the middle of dartmoor - peace and tranquility abounds. The barn has been converted to a very high spec with a beautiful kitchen/lounge complete with aga and wood burning stove. The supersize bed was so comfortable. Dog friendly too.

We booked a last minute stay at Chinkwell cottage, and I am so glad we did. It is about the closest to perfect cottage we ever stayed in. In all fairness I do not think that the photos do it justice, it is much much nicer then what you see on the website. We found eggs, bread milk and fresh... More

We went in June 2013 as a large family. The place is as beautiful as others have found it, a marvellous location for walking. The cottages are solid and comfortable. Unfortunately much of the information in the testimonials offered on the website is now out of date, as the complex appears to have been sold and the new owners were... More

HolwellCottages, Public Relations Manager at Holwell Farm Cottages, responded to this review

The holiday cottages at Holwell are now under new ownership and management. To reflect the changes at Holwell, the website is under redevelopment at the time of this response. Although there is no longer the presence of the Hughes family on site there is a caretaker living locally who will personally see guests in when they arrive and be on... More

You simply couldn't get a better location if you're interested in hiking about. We were out every morning, hiking up a tor (or several) without ever having to climb into a car. The farm is close (2 miles) to Widecombe and its two excellent pubs. The cottages (we were in 2 of them) were comfortable, clean, and offered our group... More

A last minute break found us at Hound Cottage on Holwell Farm, on Dartmoor, an area we had not previously visited. The cottage was delightfully well equipped with a large, open plan, kitchen and dining area, with an adjacent lounge/television area nestleling around the cast iron wood burner. Three very comfortable bedrooms were complimented by one ensuite and one separate... More

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Holwell. We arrived with 4 horses, 3 children and a dog! Sebastian and Philippa were not at all phased by this and couldn't have been more accomodating and helpful. Our cottage was very cosy and a welcome retreat after some of our wetter rides on the moor. It was very well... More

Stayed at Hound Tor cottage, very nicely set up with equipment, space, room decor etc. Stunning location, walking straight out onto moor and farmland - good weather helps, as for any country holiday! Excellent for kids/dogs and pubbing it around the area. Excellent horse riding nearby and also fishing options on the Dart river as well as walks etc. Suggest... More

Thanks for providing a super holiday "cottage". We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks also you your son, who it seems lent us a DVD out of his own collection! Your Peter also did a great job telling the family about your livestock too. May on the moor was lovely. The farm cottages are tucked on the side of the valley... More

We have just returned from spending 10 (mainly wet) days with a 3 year old and a 10 month old at Holwell and couldn't be happier. Saddle Tor cottage is extremely comfortable with a large living area and 4 large bedrooms with the most comfortable king beds we have ever had in a holiday property. The solid granite walls ensure...

We are recently back from a wonderful stay at Holwell Farm, located in Dartmoor National Park in Devon. Our week at Holwell Farm more than met our expectations and we hope to someday return for another stay on the farm. When I started planning our Devon trip, I had a vision of what I wanted it to be like. I... More
