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.
Ground Floor: Open Plan Lounge/ Kitchen/Diner. Rustic conservatory (unheated). Mezzanine Floor: Bedroom 1 with twin beds, washbasin and en-suite WC. First Floor: Bedroom 2 with king-size bed. Bathroom with bath, hand shower, WC and washbasin.
About the location
Chatsworth 1 mile; Bakewell 5 miles.
The pretty village of Baslow lies at the north end of stately Chatsworth House - home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The village has many unusual and picturesque features including a triple-arched river bridge guarded by a toll house whose doorway is only 3 1/2 feet high! Baslow offers a range of village amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants. Close by is Bakewell, the capital of the Peak District, and home of the famous Bakewell pudding (definitely not tart!), still made locally to an old and secret recipe. Bakewell is at the scenic heart of the Peak District, and with Alton Towers also within easy touring distance, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy.
Note: The farm has a no smoking policy throughout. Bike storage is available. Reduced rent for smaller groups up to 2 + cot - available low season, excluding school holidays.
