  • "Our reaction as we opened the door on arrival…Wow."

    It was immaculate…the fixtures and fittings are of high quality and the cleanliness….the attention to detail and very well presented and maintained. Oh I nearly forgot….a welcome ..cream tea awaits us…a life saver after an 8 hour journey. We soon settled in and we’re relaxed in excellent surroundings. I see some comments regarding difficulty in following the directions. We approached from Plymouth via A386 to Tavistock (we live in Norfolk). We entered the post code of the property and it took us straight to the door…so this may help others. Mobile phone reception is non existent at the Barn but a short way along the road it soon improves..a minor distraction I feel. All I all an excellent stay …Hazel and Mark are most welcoming…but not intrusive.

  • "Good reception and had everything you needed."

    The only thing they cannot deliver is a good mobile phone reception but a short walk up the lane corrects this.

  • "Cottage is lovely."

    Comfortable and well-equipped. We had a week in December so spent a good amount of time inside reading as well as going on short trips - we had everything we needed. Owners are friendly and helpful as well. We'd definitely recommend.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Hilly Field Barn."

    Mark and Hazel were very friendly and helpful, always available if needed, but were not intrusive in any way at all. A cosy and very well equipped converted barn with a clotted cream tea, flowers and milk on arrival. It is very rural, which we loved, but be prepared for very narrow lanes ! The surrounding rural views and sound of the river running by were very restful. Would recommend clearer directions for the last mile. There is so much to do in the area and Tavistock is a really nice town to browse. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back. Thank you !

    Stunning walks from the door and everything that you could possibly want in a cottage when you return. Really helpful, friendly owners who are on hand if you need them but not obtrusive in any way. We would definitely return.

  • "We stayed in this fabulous barn conversion in June 2021 and couldn’t have been more impressed!"

    A very welcome cream tea awaited our arrival and we were so pleased with how clean and well appointed the property was. The owners Hazel and Mark were very welcoming and helpful, yet gave us our own space to enjoy our holiday. Wonderful location to explore the Dartmoor area, shops within 10-minute drive and recommend a stroll to the village pub, The Drake Manor Inn for lunch. A walk to Double Waters from the front door (thank you Hazel’s mum!) is a must. Mobile phone signal not good (excellent!) WiFi is available. A beautiful spot to get away from it all. Oh and our cocker spaniel also had the time of his life! Highly recommended.

    We had everything we needed for our stay in the cottage. Hazel and Mark were also a great help, including organising the cot and high chair for our little one.

  • "The local people, as well as the owners, are very friendly."

    The garden is well maintained and is not just grassed but contains flowering plants and shrubs, and a washing line located in a secluded area. Attractive hanging baskets either side of the front door, situated out of harm's way.

  • "This holiday let is beyond anything one could imagine and the setting takes it again to another level."

    However you need to find it first!Unfortunately the directions for the last part of the journey are inaccurate and take you to quite a different place, albeit in the same general area. As the lane on which the holiday let is unnamed and unmarked, and a satnav takes you to a different place again, it is impossible for any other than a local person to find it except by chance. Can I suggest that there are some revised directions both for those coming from the north (via Tavistock), and for those coming from the south (via Plymouth). We were coming from the south so the directions were no use at all. Hazel, the owner of the property was able to direct us when we phoned her but you can't depend on that with phone signals being erratic in the Devon countryside. Having said all that, I can wholeheartedly recommend this property

    This was perfect for that; out of the way on the edge of a village on the edge of Dartmoor, with places of interest on the south western part of the moor. Excellent location for us, with pub nearby.
