  • "An absolute perfect country cottage nestled in a little hamlet on Dartmoor ."

    Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The owners had thought of everything anyone could need for a self- catering holiday. The Welcome Pack was beyond generous - a whole table full of delicious homemade treats. Would definitely recommend.

    Friendly hosts and easy to contact if needed. Spotlessly clean. Easy to find and near to a number of fabulous places to visit. Cosy pub just round the corner - quiz night was great fun :-) Would highly recommend this cottage and we would definitely stay here again when in the area.

  • "Three Hares Cottage is an amazing place to stay."

    It’s spotlessly clean and is a cosy and relaxing cottage. Everything you could possibly need is supplied. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking on the Aga. Ian and Jackie are perfect caring hosts, who made us feel very welcome. Thank you to you both for the delicious local treats waiting for us on arrival, and for lighting the wood burner ready for us to sit and relax by. We look forward to a return visit.

  • "Three Hares is a very cosy and comfortable cottage in a wonderfully tranquil location."

    It's also less than 10 minutes from the A30, so getting around the rest of Dartmoor and Devon is very easy. We were made very welcome on arrival by the owners Jackie and Ian who made sure we settled in and were shown how everything worked. There was also a generous selection of local produce for us, as well as home-made scones, bread and jam. Everything you could possibly need is supplied and we also enjoyed cooking using the range. We were incredibly lucky with the weather (mild and dry for 2 weeks in November!), so we did not need to use the wood burners. There are some great walks in the immediate vicinity along the lanes and also onto the open moor. The local pub, the Northmore Arms at Wonson, a mere five minute walk away, is well worth a visit. It was only open on Fridays and Sundays during our visit, but we understand that it will be open daily in the near future. Check their Facebook page. We had a wonderful holiday and would thoroughly recommend the Three Hares.

  • "Thank you so much, Ian and Jackie, for a lovely time at Three Hares Cottage."

    We felt utterly spoilt with the unexpected, local treats on arrival. The cottage is perfect. So warm and cozy, we felt right at home and what a gorgeous setting. The walks from here are fabulous,  starting with a lovely walk down quiet, winding, drystone walled lanes and then you are out on the open moor with countless walks available. We'll have to come back again to try more of them. We will definitely be back.

  • "Three Hares Cottage has been a most excellent find."

    We have been coming to Dartmoor for years, but have very much enjoyed staying close to Chagford and accessing walks across the moor nearby. The cottage was warm and comfortable and a delight to stay in. Our hosts provided a wonderful feast including freshly made scones for a cream tea and bread and eggs for the following morning on our arrival. They recommended some wonderful walks and were generally marvellous hosts. We'll be back again for sure. Katy

  • "Amazing cottage, fantastic hosts and exceptionally clean with everything you would need for the perfect stay."

    Fabulous welcome gifts from the friendly hosts were unexpected but greatly appreciated. Would highly recommend the cottage. Just one thing to be aware of it is some distance from the main roads on the narrow Devon lanes but worth it once you arrive.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a quiet location."

    Owners live in an adjacent cottage & are available if the need arises but not intrusive in any way. A lovely touch, waiting on the farmhouse kitchen table, a selection of treats including local milk, clotted cream & apple juice. The lanes leading to & from the cottage are very narrow & while we intended cycling to neighbouring villages, felt unsafe to do so but a good selection of cycle routes close by. Highly recommend this property.

    The hosts were perfect, living close by if we needed anything - but left us to our own devices. The cottage also had absolutely everything provided, all cooking and kitchen equipment, DVDs, milk, local farm eggs, butter, firewood and even clotted cream to go on home made scones - amazing and quite unexpected. We shall certainly be booking here again.

  • "From the moment we arrived, we were absolutely astounded by the reception from our hosts."

    The property is absolutely beautiful, and totally exceeded our expectations, from the welcome (with delicious local fare), to the warmth and comfort of a stunning cottage. Nicky and I felt completely at home, and the surrounding countryside is absolutely stunning, and you are never far from anything, but far enough away to feel like an idyllic escape away from everything. The walks are outstanding, and even the rain in December was not enough to deter our enjoyment. Log burners, warm rooms, the AGA style oven heating silently was just beautiful. We will definitely be back. Thank you to our wonderful hosts Jackie and Ian.

  • "Three Hares Cottage, WOW if you would like a cosy, comfortable bolt hole away from the crazy World, look no further."

    We a have stayed in many holiday lets over the past 30 years and we have never stayed in a cottage that was as good as this. Jacky and Ian greeted us on our arrival and made us feel so very welcome and did everything they could to ensure that we could rest and enjoy our holiday in their lovely cottage. Even got the kettle ready for our first cup of tea! They showed us around and ensured we could use/find everything that we may need. The cottage was spotlessly clean, which is no mean feat with a cottage of such character. The beds are both king sized and have very comfortable mattresses and lovely fresh top quality white linen on them. We all slept really well - such a peaceful location. Such an lovely welcome, fire already lit and a carefully chosen and very generous selection of edible treats (some of which are home made and all were delicious). Ian and Jacky live in the adjoining farm house achieve the almost impossible balance, of being readily and easily available without intruding in any way. They are fantastic hosts. I'm scratching my head to think of any negatives for Three Hares Cottages: I'll just mention that there are x3 internal steps into the upstairs bedroom and the main stairs (split by a small landing) have steps that are shallow in depth (there is a rail and walls for support if needed), if your mobility is restricted on steps this may cause you an issue. This is a beautiful character filled cottage that has been carefully restored to a very high level. The fixtures and fittings have been chosen with care, a lovely mix of old and new. We just loved curling up together on the comfortable sofas in front of the woodburner after exploring the 'great outdoors' - you have a choice of woodburners to use! Location is 10 mins off the A30 and situated just on the edge of Dartmoor. A great location for heading onto the moor or further afield. Thank you so much Jacky and Ian - we've arrived back home feel rested, revived and refreshed - ready to dive back into our busy lives. We'll be back!

    We wanted somewhere quiet and cozy and we were very satisfied with the property. The welcome was warm and generous; we were made to feel immediately relaxed. Inside was full of character and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Our particular highlight was enjoying eating breakfast by the fire.

  • "This is a beautifully decorated period cottage with modern facilities inc a powerful shower, plenty of hot water, central heating and comfy king size beds."

    The owners live in the converted barn next door and are very approachable and helpful. We were struck by how clean the place was on arrival, and very pleased to have been left a delicious home baked loaf. We thoroughly recommend this cottage to other couples. One word of advice is if you need a taxi around the Chagford area, book well in advance (day before) as we wouldn't advise walking the journey back to the cottage after dark. We went on some lovely walks from the cottage during the day, there are very few cars on the surrounding roads and the drivers we encountered were all careful.

    Angefangen beim freundlichen Empfang mit einem Willkommenskorb, der keine Wünsche übrig ließ (Kaffee, Tee, Wein, Chips, selbstgebackenes Brot und frisches Gebäck, Konfitüre, Milch, Butter, Kekse, ...) bis hin zur perfekten Ausstattung der Wohnung war einfach alles hervorragend. Ich habe selten eine Ferienwohnung erlebt, die so liebevoll und gemütlich dekoriert war und so gut ausgestattet war wie diese. Egal, ob Küchenutensilien, Geschirr, Besteck, Reinigungsmittel, Textilien - alles war mehr als ausreichend vorhanden und in tadellosem Zustand. Die Gastgeber selbst waren sehr aufmerksam und jederzeit ansprechbar. Das Haus hat die ideale Lage, um Devon zu erkunden. Man ist innerhalb von 6-7 Minuten auf größeren Straßen, so dass man sowohl die Nord- als auch Südküste innerhalb von 45 - 60 Minuten erreichen kann. Im Herzen des Dartmoors ist man in 10-15 Minuten. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind in etwa 15 Minuten Fahrzeit zu erreichen, Pubs in knapp 10 Minuten. Wir haben uns absolut wohl gefühlt und können die Wohnung uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

  • "We arrived after a very long drive and received a very warm welcome from Jackie and Ian, Jackie gave us a guided tour of the cottage whilst Ian made us a much needed cup of tea."

    The welcome basket was the most extensive one I've ever seen, so many delicious things to eat and drink. The cottage itself is lovely and very clean, it is exceptionally well equipped, I really couldn't think of anything in the kitchen that it didn't have, so unusual in most cottages we have stayed in before. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and we slept really well, it is so quiet. The garden is very well kept and although it is in front of the owners house it always felt very private, we sat out there everyday after our days out and it was a lovely little sun trap. The cottage is situated on a very quiet road, just into the edge of Dartmoor, a really good place to stay to explore all over Devon, so many National Trust places to visit, so many things to do. We would highly recommend this cottage it is fabulous.

  • "This cottage is exceptional."

    It has been renovated to a high specification with all the modern comforts you would need. We arrived and were greeted by Jackie who was lovely and friendly. She provided us with a helpful tour of the property and answered any questions we had. When we entered the kitchen we were greeted by a lovely hamper of home made sour dough bread and apple juice, a variety of teas, coffee, cookies, eggs, crisps, bread buns (similar to scones but we can't remember the name!), and in the fridge was locally made butter, fresh milk, clotted cream and jam. And let's not forget the free bottle of prosecco too! Basically, a free feast! We felt right at home and, although the owners live next door, we never felt that we lacked privacy and our own space. It was good to know they were there if there were any questions or problems (which there weren't). The outdoor space was available to us throughout our stay and we took full advantage. As a younger couple (early 30s), this was a really lovely romantic trip away for us. There were lots of things to do, a pub a short walk away, and the peace and quiet was perfect for a detox from the hustle and bustle of normal life. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a romantic break or even a group getaway, as there's two lovely sized bedrooms. Thank you, we had a brilliant few days :o) Chloe and Dan Arden
