The property

The landscape of the Dartmoor National Park is a unique mix of dramatic tors, wooded valleys, stunning gorges and a sprinkling of picturesque villages.

On the south-eastern slopes of the moor is the quiet village of Holne, where village life centres around the 13th century church and Community Shop & Tearoom.

The Two Moors Way, a long-distance route stretching between Dartmoor and Exmoor, and Buckfastleigh and the ancient stannary town of Ashburton are both four miles away.

Forestoke Linhay is a detached, barn conversion on a small working farm on the edge of Holne.

With open moorland just outside the farm gates it’s an ideal location for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers.

The cottage is traditionally furnished and full of character with exposed stone walls, wooden beams and vaulted ceilings.

The living area is small and cosy, warmed by a wood burning stove.

Adjoining the lounge, there is a rustic conservatory with doors opening onto the enclosed, terraced patio garden.

From the twin bedroom, doors open onto a small patio and the pretty double bedroom has extensive views towards Torquay and Teignmouth, taking in Hembury and Holne Woods.

  • “Cottage was beautiful, with stunning views and a lovely host who was very welcoming.”

    In need of some maintenance work with regards to taps needing new washers and repair work needed on the conservatory but this would not stop us from returning as soon as we can.

About the location


Newton Abbot 8 miles; Torquay 17 miles; Plymouth 25 miles

The ancient Stannary town of Ashburton lies on the southern slopes of Dartmoor and is an ideal spot from which to explore the rugged high moors to the North and a beautiful coastline to the South. The scenery in this area of South Devon is glorious in all weathers and offers visitors opportunities for walking, pony trekking, canoeing, fishing and lazing on the beach. Ashburton has some interesting artisan shops and with its interesting history and museum, has built a reputation for its high standard of antiques and fine collectables outlets. It also has lovely tea rooms, a wine bar and a fantastic food deli providing fresh fish and olives. In the surrounding area, Dartmoor has many picturesque villages and hamlets with old thatched cottages and ancient churches, surrounded by a patchwork of fields and woodland. Lustleigh, North Bovey, Chagford and Widecombe- in- the- Moor are fine examples. The attractive seaside town of Teignmouth is a half hour drive and the popular Blackpool Sands, although a little further down the coast, is one of South Devon's most beautiful natural treasures. An award-winning privately managed 'Blue Flag' family beach with turquoise blue sea giving it an almost Mediterranean feel. So whether it is moor or coast that you’re seeking for your getaway, Ashburton is a really central town from which to be based.
