    Additional Location Information
    The Old Stables is in the quiet hamlet of Doccombe, three miles outside Moretonhampstead in the Dartmoor National Park. We are situated in a valley looking up to Mardon Down.

    Our location makes an ideal holiday base for touring, walking, riding and cycling. We just 12 miles from the M5 motorway. We are in the centre of Devon so all of Devon and north Cornwall is within easy reach. We are just off the B3212 so there is no need to go down narrow roads - if you don’t want to! We have ample parking in our yard.
    Exeter rail stations and Airport are nearby and we have a regular bus service going right by us.
    The seaside is within easy reach. Moretonhampstead (the gateway to the high moors) is just 3 miles away.

This holiday cottage was exactly what we were looking for for a family getaway (plus 2 dogs!) The cottage is comfortable, cosy, and is equipped with everything we could possibly need.

The Old Stables is a very spacious and beautiful cottage which enables you to completely relax and feel comfortable. It has wonderfully furnished bedrooms with lost of space and perfect en suite bathrooms. The children loved the garden and the outdoor chess set - and of course the cats who were very friendly and playful. - And Moretonhampstead offers everything... more

Management response:

The grassed area could have easily been made secure as we have three gates between it and the road and there are two torches in the cottage. It... more
