  • "The cottage is lovely and all the images and descriptions are an accurate indication of what you can expect."

    The self contained garden has stunning views of the countryside. Additionally, the local shop is a real treasure trove of local produce. Highly recommended.

  • "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.

  • "There was everything we needed for a perfect stay."

    We only shopped for food. The owners, Katy and David, showed us how to adjust the heating as we wanted it and gave us eggs when we arrived and to bring home - delicious. Dave and Sarah Evans

  • "Absolutely loved our time at The Stone Barn Cottage - I couldn’t recommend it more."

    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.

  • "These were wonderful holidays."

    Very nice and helpful hosts. The cottage was very clean. It had a lot of space and was furnished very conveniently. The small village (Holne) has a shop and a nice inn and it is a good starting point for hiking tours (e. g. to the river).

  • "The cottage was well placed for visiting Dartmoor and coastal towns."

    We were very lucky with our holiday dates because they coincided with a fair at Widdecombe in the More which was very near to us and gave us a brilliant day out. There we saw "Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney, Peter Davey, Dan'l Widden, 'Arry'Awke, an 'Auld Uncle Tom Coblie An' All" an also Tom Pearce on his old gray mare.

  • "Both in your brochure and in the email confirmations it states that towels are not included at this property, but they were."

    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
