This 3 bedroom cottage really is a home from home. The lounge/diner, bathroom, kitchen and 3 bedrooms are all spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. The views from the windows are spectacular and you even get your own private garden area. Perfect quiet location surrounded by a plethora of great places to visit and things to do. Highly recommended - 5*
This beautifully refurbished farmhouse top floor on the edge of Dartmoor has a great deal to recommend it - beautiful location, excellent facilities and lots of little touches like silk and fresh flowers - and people on site to help with any glitches such as leaks or heating failures - all dealt with quickly and efficiently. I think you have to enjoy the caravan park ethos to get the most out of the experience - it took me a little while to do so, but that's my problem, not the owners' - it is what it is. One sadness for me personally was that the website did not make it clear that the 'private, secluded garden' is actually across the carpark, not a yard that is integral to the property. So, if you have fond fantasies of opening the door into the garden for your dog to pootle around while you make your morning cup of coffee, forget it - you need to get washed and dressed and take your canine friend across the carpark to access the garden which, in fairness, when you get to it, is a super little paddock, but it was wet and cold when we stayed (well, it was January!) and my expectations had been different. Having said that, I would like to return, if the owners will have us back - I didn't have time to do any last-minute housework as we struggled to leave by 10am (nearer 10.55, I'm afraid, but I tried), so the carpet didn't look great! I'd love to try Rowan Cottage next time as it looks as though that garden is actually attached to the property and I think we could cope with the smaller space. All-in-all, a lovely place and, of course, with the moor all around you, Tavistock just down the road and lots of lovely eateries nearby, it is a perfect location. My 94-year-old disabled mother and my Golden Retriever had a wonderful time, and once we were inside - or out and about - all was fine. Don't forget, though, that it remains part of a caravan park - which may be particularly attractive to some - and that the launderette is communal, so you have to take your turn. For the right people, this could not be bettered and even with my reservations over the park ethos and the garden, it was still lovely. I hope we can come back - and pray for kinder, drier weather for the sake of the carpet!

We were two couples touring Devon and Cornwall. This was a perfect location in the lovely Moor for driving and walking. Near tavistock for all your needs.The house was spacious and had everything we needed. The owners were helpful and attentive. We would certainly recommend it.
This is the third time we have stayed in these holiday cottages. The first time we stayed in Rowan, second was in Oak and now in the best - The Old Farmhouse. We have always been impressed with the cottages for their cleanliness and facilities. We have two dogs and itbis important that they can come and enjoy themselves as well. Each cottage has their own garden which allows the dogs some freedom. The accommodation is excellent and the level of equipment is fantastic. Who would expect to have a dishwasher installed - there is here. The place is so quiet and a haven for bird life as well. If you want the moors then they are only a short walk away.
The owners are very friendly as well and can't do enough to help.
They provide a kennel for the dogs if you have to leave them and there is secure storage for bikes.
Really can't fault the place.
