    “Amazing Grade 1 property with original features going back to the XVII century.”

    ...

    This property does not offer only an amazing location, plenty of space and a large garden, but the opportunity to stay in a truly historical building. We are experienced worldwide travellers and always looking for accommodations that offer unique experiences, and this was perfect to impress my kids (!)We have visited Chagford (6min drive), walked through the Daartmoor National Park (20min drive) and even taken a trip to the seaside (Teighmough is less than 1 hour away). My family has enjoyed the evenings playing board games (from the many available in the house)by the enormous chimney. Being an old farm the building can be a bit cold so wrap up and set the fire with the provider logs when coming back from your day trip to enjoy the evening. The kitchen is amazing, with the large AGA cooker and all sort of cooking utensils, more that we would normally use during holidays :-)’’

The property

Two miles from the centre of the friendly little Dartmoor town of Chagford, this ancient thatched Devon longhouse sits in its old original farmyard, (no farm animals are kept around the property),now a courtyard surrounded by barns.

Built in medieval times and full of history, it is listed and has amazing ancient features and, since it comes with a cottage in the courtyard, provides flexible accommodation for couples and groups of friends.

An ancient oak door leads you into the cross passage, with utility room and bathroom in the lower part of the house where animals once dozed.

The sitting room is stunning, with traditional open fire in a huge inglenook fireplace and old paneled walls.

Off this is a quiet study with jigsaws and games.

The kitchen is typical of an old farmhouse with big dining table in the centre and modern electric Aga.

Two staircases lead you upstairs to four simple, restful bedrooms with white walls and uneven wood floors.

The sense of history here is amazing, with a wonderful atmosphere.

Outside, the cottage provides a lovely space for anyone who wants peace or independence, with its own kitchen with dining area, sitting room with wood burning stove and two upstairs bedrooms with a bathroom.

Outside, there is plenty of space to wander and dream with a big lawn garden, which does have a 5ft drop so keep an eye on the children, surrounded by 130 acres of traditional Devon fields.

If you come with a group, why not make a party by arranging to hire the medieval threshing barn across the courtyard, which makes a fine space for a banquet or revel?

Professional catering can be arranged here too.

With Dartmoor on the doorstep, this is a great place for walking, cycling or touring the area, or wander the streets of Chagford or Okehampton with little shops and friendly pubs and eateries.

Visit Castle Drogo or head to the cathedral city of Exeter.

Whatever your hopes and dreams for your Devon holiday, Hole Farm is a very special place to stay,

About the location

CHAGFORD

Okehampton 12 miles; Exeter 21 miles.

A picturesque town at the northern point of Dartmoor National Park in Devon. Chagford, one of the five Stannary towns of Dartmoor, is small in size but is packed with amenities and things to do. There is a wide range of shops as well as four pubs. Chagford also has more active facilities such as public tennis court and an open-air swimming pool to enjoy at your leisure. It is a town of great history, home to the Three Crowns Hotel which dates back to the 1200's. Chagford is well known for its culture, hosting film, literary and music festivals in the town as well as an annual running race, known as Two Hills Race. Just over 21 miles away is the bustling, beautiful city of Exeter for a different kind of break, definitely worth a visit. The charming, attractive town of Okehampton sits just 12 miles away.
