    Thank you for your lovely feedback - we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

  • "Excellent stay with you."

    The lane is not a problem as its Devon and to be expected. Tourist information would be helpful in the cottage and cleaning cloths under the sink, but you have provided spray chemicals. So thanks for them.

    Thank you for your feedback and we’re glad that you enjoyed your stay! We have added cleaning cloths and sponges to our cupboards as per your recommendations. We continue to remove paper tourist information for covid protection measures unfortunately. Property Owner

  • "When moving the bed to gain access to the wall socket we were confronted by a lot of accumulated dust and spider webs; the terrace and railings needed repairing; the lawn could be tidier."

    One couldn't beat the ambience of the surrounding setting, so pieceful throughout, a beautiful spacious view! We would happily return for another stay and also recommend it to our friends. Thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback and positive comments. Thank you for drawing our attention to the dust under the bed; being a solid mahogany sleigh bed, it can be difficult to move for one cleaner and as a country property we are subject to very persistent spiders! However, we have now rectified the issue and will monitor it. We prefer to limit outdoor maintenance that is close to our properties (such as railings and terraces) to our winter closure times to minimise noise and disruption to our guests but we apologise if you found them unsightly.

    Once again Sykes came up trumps Ellen and her husband were very friendly and hospitable, only one very, very small thing the plug in the basin in the bathroom didn’t fit properly and so Dennis found it difficult to shave

    Thank you for your lovely feedback! It was great to meet you both. Our apologies about the plug and thank you for bringing it to our attention Property Owner

    Foot stool and if you could offer a breakfast box for the following morning would be lovely. The eggs and biscuits were a lovely touch. We would definitely stay again.

    Property was clean and well presented, small garden in need of TLC. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Very small kitchen lacking in basic essentials i.e colander OR slotted spoon, mixing basin. Very comfortable couch. Owners are aware of problem with duvet and mattress

    Thank you for your feedback. The suggested kitchen items have now been added to the property. Property Owner

  • "We had an amazing time staying in the cottage."

    The views were simply stunning. We had a little problem with the bed being far to noisy, but as soon as we mentioned it, it was fixed on the same day. All joking aside it was extremely noisy and they were so grateful we pointed it out as like they said they don’t sleep in there so they wouldn’t know. After that we had an amazing time.

  • "Fabulous week away staying at Nestling on White Tor Farm."

    Very cosy and brilliantly situated with great views. Although it is a remote hill farm, there is walking right from the door and only a short drive to lots of other Dartmoor attractions so best of both worlds. Tavistock only a few miles away for shopping etc. Loved our week here. Ellen, the owner, was really helpful. Can't rate it highly enough. Very sad to leave. Had many holidays as a child on Dartmoor and so good to be back visiting old haunts and exploring new and we will certainly be rebooking in the future.

    Only downside this time was the state of the access road and track due to local farm activity in extremely wet weather Still a wonderful break and will come again

  • "Stayed for 6 nights in September."

    We were greeted with fresh milk, eggs and a sweet treat on our arrival. The cottage was perfectly suited for a couple and accommodated our pet dog perfectly. Clean and well maintained with spectacular views of Dartmoor and the stunning night sky. The access road from Peter Tavy is quite the experience and not for the faint hearted! Don’t let that put you off a wonderful venue with more than helpful hosts Ellen and Geoff.

  • "It is a delightful, well equipped, warm and cosy cottage."

    Plenty of room for one or two people, very dog friendly. Access is a mile or so down country lane and up a steepish farm road up to the cottages, which was nowhere near as bumpy as some people have suggested. Maybe not for your low slung Ferrari. but fine for normal folk. More than compensated by one of the most beautiful views from the cottage and garden. Stunning and tranquil. I heard a cuckoo every day. Owners are very friendly and helpful. One small reservation is that the wonderfully comfortable double bed is rather low so, if you are a bit older and less mobile, you have work at getting up . Otherwise, very Highly recommended.

  • "Fantastic location and hosts were friendly and helpful."

    The cottage would benefit from a small folding clothes maiden so hand-washed items could be dried easily. It would be great if a small gate could be fitted to make the garden secure as it’s not very relaxing to be constantly watching the dog doesn’t wander. Overall, a great little cottage in a great location.

    Clean, well equipped. very comfortable and in a beautifulpeaceful location. The owners are lovely, we had a little welcome treat, they were there when needed but not overly present. Love the fact they grabbed us a loaf of bread from the local shop when we got snowed in. The only thing that would have improved our great holiday was if the garden had a gate and extra buttons to the fencing, so it was totally secure and the dogs couldn’t have roamed onto the farm. But the paddock to run the dogs in was a dream come true for our two dogs. Many thanks

The property

Tavistock 4 miles.

This detached, stone-built barn conversion, dating back to 1900 is situated next door to the owner's home on their traditional Dartmoor hill farm, where they breed cattle, in a rural location, within the Dartmoor National Park, a mile from the small village of Peter Tavy, and close to the market town of Tavistock.

Beautifully appointed throughout, this property provides a wonderful base for couples looking to explore this area.

Situated all on the ground floor you enter the property into a sociable open plan living area with tiled floor and a well-equipped compact kitchen with everything you need to rustle up a delicious meal to be shared around the dining table.

The 2 seater sofa is a comfortable place to snuggle up together and enjoy watching a film or to sit quietly and enjoy the views from the lounge window over the back garden and out across the Dartmoor National Park.

One step up leads into the excellently-appointed double bedroom with a lovely en-suite shower room.

On sunny days enjoy dining alfresco on the patio outside or wander down to the fence at the end of the garden to soak up those glorious 180 degree countryside views, with the farm itself boasting panoramic 360 degree views of the surrounding moor.

Also as there’s almost zero light pollution, on a clear night you can look up and admire the stars in the sky.

As this property is in an isolation location on the side of a moor, there are wonderful walks from the door that are perfect for hikers and dog lovers, plus with riding stables less than three miles away, this cottage provides access to stunning horse trekking across the moors.

You may also wish to walk to a Bronze Age settlement, just ten minutes’ away and there are standing stones within reach.

A short drive, up the side of a moor, will take you into the nearby award-winning market town of Tavistock with its range of shops, restaurants and pubs and with the slopes of Dartmoor on the edge of this town, walkers are well catered for.

There are several National Trust properties in the area with outstanding gardens to explore or perhaps hop in the car and spend a day at one of the many sandy beaches within an hour’s drive.

This wonderful barn conversion is ideal for a tranquil, romantic retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Note: This property is next to Ref. 918405, together they sleep 6.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
