Spent 3 nights, family with 2 boys (12 & 16) on the Moors and just wish it had been longer, it really was everything we hoped and more. The cottage was immaculate and beautifully designed. Spacious bright and cosy with every home comfort. The views and walks are amazing. If the day starts grey it can change several times, we... More

We had a wonderful time in this cottage which is the middle of the moor. My personal highlight was sitting at the central table and seeing two Tors at the same time whilst having breakfast. We stayed in Sattle Tor, which had ample space for 4 adults and 4 kids. We easily walked to Hound Tor with our two year... More

Having stayed in many self catering cottages etc I can safely say this is the worst myself and my family have ever come across. Yes, the location is very good but that is the one thing that is positive about these alleged 5 star cottages, I do not for 1 moment believe that is the case by the way unless... More

We stayed in Chinkwell Tor Cottage for a week. The house is very clean and the equipment is first class. Beds are very comfortable. We felt that the owner of the cottage would like you to have a good and relaxing holiday.

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 Unfortunately much of the information in the testimonials offered on the website is now out of date, as the complex appears to have been sold and the new owners were...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

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
