“Perfect short break”
Reviewed September 14, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

This was a wonderful find, the Granary was situated in the beautiful farm in the heart of Dartmoor.
Nick, Sarah, the dogs and the children were delightful, helpful and accommodating.
The fresh eggs and bottle of wine was such a lovely touch that we really appreciated.
The recommendation of dinner in Haytor Vale was an exceptional one as well.
We have recommended you to all our friends and hope you continue to be successful as you fully deserve it for the service you provide.

“Superb!”

Absolutely fantastic stay here, Nick and Sarah both very welcoming along with the rest of their family and the dogs!
We stayed in the Granary which has been beautifully restored, lots of nice finishing touches which created a home from home feel with an added bit of luxury.
Great location, nice and secluded (no mobile network which was great!) Not too far from Dartmouth, Torquay so easily accessible.
Highly recommend a stay here and would definitely return!

“Nestled in rolling hills this is a picturesque apartment which radiates relaxation and tranquility”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is as idyllic as it sounds and appears on the websIte. The apartment was perfect for a couple: it is furnished tastfully, spotless and feels beautifully cosy. The farm and countryside it sits in is stunning and the three dogs are hard not to grow too attached to.

We felt very welcomed throughout our stay and were comforted in feeling that if we had needed anything Nick and Sarah would have provided..... although everything and more was already there!

There is lots to explore, in both rain and shine in the surrounding areas. And even staying on the farm has lots to explore too.

This is a beautiful place to visit and fantastic value for money....
A hidden gem in south Devon.
