  • "A very comfortable stay."

    Highlights were; the comfortable bed; cozy evenings in front of the fire; underfloor heating in the bedrooms and best of all watching the sun rise over the moors whilst enjoying the first coffee of the day. Wonderful.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at the Stone Barn Cottage for our new year's eve celebrations."

    The cottage is absolutely beautiful, clean and comfortable. Bedrooms are very comfy and great that there are so many bathrooms. The kitchen/ living area was well equipped and the burner provided lovely warmth for for the not so great Dartmoor weather. The hosts greeted us on arrival by chance and they were lovely and welcoming. Amazing walks nearby down to the river and the local pub served delicious food and had lovely people! Would recommend to anyone wanting a countryside getaway!

  • "David and Katie offer a warm, well-equipped and charming 'home from home' at the Old Stone Barn."

    . and it was lovely to meet them. The barn is very well situated near to many towns and walks, and swimming spots. Very close to the Dartmoor Way, and 2 Moors Way, and Holne is easily accessible from main routes. The village itself is friendly and welcoming, with a great little shop/cafe, excellent pub and a second hand book shop. The lawned garden is a nice outside space (even in December for a hot cuppa wrapped up in our dryrobes!) with farmyard sounds and birdsong. Yes indeed we hope to return!

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and had all the facilities that we needed."

    It was great to have a separate bathroom for each bedroom for convenience. The open living and dining areas worked well for us with all the modern appliances we needed and comfortable sofas to relax on. The garden was a wonderful sunny area to sit in, relax and admire the views. The location was lovely and quiet with the bonus of having a superb pub 100 yards away.

  • "Excellent stay and extremely dog friendly cottage."

    The location is ideal for walks and beach visits are nearby. The cottage itself has everything you need (although 6 persons may be a liitle tight) and the enclosed garden is great for the dogs to run around and do their business. Owners are on hand to deal with any issues and made us feel welcome whilst at the same time giving us space. You may require to purchase additional logs if you visit during a cold spell and we were unfortunate to experience a day of no electric (due to storms) so left a little earlier than planned. No reflection on the property or owners. Book this cottage and you will not be disappointed.

    The hosts were friendly, and even let us help ourselves to the fresh eggs laid by the chickens they keep! The cottage itself was clean and well-presented, and in an ideal location. The enclosed garden was lovely and spacious, perfect for sitting outside and taking in the surrounding views. The property is located near to the local tea rooms and village shop, which were lovely to visit. We were also in walking distance of the River Dart, which is definitely worth visiting! Definitely the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed at, and would love to go back soon! :)

  • "Stonebarn Cottage was exceptionally comfortable and well-equipped."

    We had very poor weather and I was on crutches, so our usual holiday activities, which involve walking and enjoying the outdoors, were not really feasible. The cottage was the perfect home from home. Holne is a pleasant village with a shop and tearoom, and is well located close to the edge of Dartmoor. Our dog enjoyed local walks and loved the garden.

    Although this was a pleasant surprise on arrival, we could have saved the space in the car as these are quite bulky. I would have given a better score for cleanliness as the property had been cleaned well, but as we started to use cutlery and crockery, some of this still had food on.

The property

This comfy Devon cottage is situated on the edge of the Dartmoor village of Holne.

It has been converted from a barn attached to the owner's’ house and makes an ideal base for families and couples to enjoy Dartmoor and the beautiful surrounding countryside.

The upside down layout means you have a lovely lofty open plan space on the top floor with wood floor, seating area with wood burning stove, dining area, kitchen and steps leading up to a door to the garden.

Two of the three downstairs bedrooms enjoy an en suite, as well as the smart shower room.

The enclosed garden is a peaceful spot with lawn, views over countryside and the moors and garden furniture.

This is a wonderful place for the great outdoors, with excellent walks and riding stables nearby, as well as fishing for trout or salmon in the River Dart.

The beaches at Torbay are just 15 miles away, and of course the wide expanses of Dartmoor with its ponies, sheep and cattle are waiting to be explored.

The Stone Barn Cottage is a welcoming base for exploring the moors and south coast of Devon
