We stayed in Bale house for a week in September and then again in October 2017.
The new owners have done a wonderful job of refreshing and updating all the cottages (we managed to get a quick look into them all) since they took over last summer and it would be a tough decision to pick the “best” ones as they are all unique and individual.
Bales is one of the largest cottages with plenty of space for 8 adults while retaining a true country cottage feel. The family bathroom has a luxurious claw bath but 2 of the bedrooms also have private shower facilities.
The kitchen is very well equipped, even if you are looking to cook in every day, there are plenty of pots and pans, utensils and crockery.
The whole property is peaceful with stunning views over Dartmoor. It’s all beautifully maintained and the nearest village is a stiff walk but has nice pubs and a few useful shops.
I couldn’t recommend this gorgeous get away location enough. We will be back!
