13C cottage in beautiful village

Stunning cottage hidden hidden away in the village of Holne with fantastic walks from the door.
It combines the cosiness of low ceilings, a fabulous kitchen and a wood burning stove with great modern features like luxury bathrooms and also has a spacious and very private garden. There's a great village pub just 100 metres away too.


This beautiful, stone-walled 13th century cottage is hidden away in the Dartmoor village of Holne. Although only 50 metres from the charming Church House Inn and next to the village church it’s completely secluded and can’t even be seen from the little road that goes through the village.

The cottage has been in the owner, Jane's family for many years, and as her and her partner Stuart are architects it’s been sensitively restored to a very high standard. It really is the quintessential Dartmoor cottage, combining the cosiness of low ceilings and a wood burning stove with great modern features such as the fabulous new bathrooms with limestone floors, heated towel rails and underfloor heating. It's the kind of cottage you won’t want to leave at the end of your holiday!

The ground floor has stone floors throughout. The kitchen/breakfast room has a Rayburn, electric cooker, microwave, fridge, washing machine & dishwasher with French windows that open out to the paved courtyard (photo not yet updated) The sitting/dining room has an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove plus electric heating, rugs and comfortable furniture. From the sitting room you access a small extension which has a downstairs loo and a utility room.

Upstairs the master bedroom is ensuite. It also has a door out to an inglenook overlooking the garden (see photos). The second bedroom has a double and a single bed with a separate shower room. The newly fitted bathrooms have limestone floors with underfloor heating and heated towel rails.

Despite being over 700 years old the cottage has modern technology too with Free Wi-fi, a TV, a Blue Ray DVD player and use of a landline for local calls.

There are great walks (or runs) from the door as the Two Moors Way passes nearby. But the area also offers great fishing, horse riding, canoeing, cycling and mountain biking.

The nearby river Dart also has some great swimming and picnic spots.

The old Stannary town of Ashburton is a short drive. This has a great selection of high quality restaurants, pubs cafes and shops. In the summer it has an excellent outdoor heated swimming pool. The town is particularly known for its antique shops.

And if you tire of the moor South Devon's loveliest beaches are within easy driving distance. And for the occasional wet day try a day trip to Plymouth for some shopping and to visit the National Aquarium or a visit to the Dartmoor Zoological Park featured in the Matt Damon movie, We bought a Zoo.


Guests have full access to everything in the cottage and the extensive gardens


I'm available throughout on phone and email. The caretaker, Paula, lives in the village a couple of minutes away and is there to help.


My favourite of all the cottages I manage. I wish I lived there myself



This cottage has been in the owner's family for many years so guests are asked to treat it with the care it deserves. Strictly no smoking in the garden and the cottage is not suitable for under 5s because of the ponds in the garden. Please leave the cottage clean and tidy at the end of your stay.



This is a beautiful cottage in a picturesque village that has been renovated to a high standard. Everything was as described, we enjoyed our visit and would not hesitate to return. It is in an area of great natural beauty with many walking trails across Dartmoor. Pubs and fine restaurants are within easy reach. The wood-burning stove is especially welcome in the evening. The garden looks as if will be a main attraction when in full bloom.

A very special location in a very unique house. This is why we use AirBnB - to find truly unforgettable lodgings. The house is beyond old, quirky, dark, a bit damp, and a hazard to those of even average height - but we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Wonderful location, great grounds, modernized appliances and electronics. The house oozes atmosphere and provides a fun, safe and memorable base to explore the Dartmoor region.

We had a great stay at the cottage. We wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage is just as described, and there really is everything you might need to be comfortable. Extra added bonus for me personally was a manual espresso maker! Ben emailed us all the directions and other info in plenty of time before our trip. We were met by the caretaker who gave us the keys and some additional pointers. This is a beautiful place to stay in one of the most beautiful parts of England.

We had a really great time, thank you so much!

Wonderful cottage in beautiful Dartmoor. Everything was perfect, a true home away from home. We will be back!

Ein traumhaftes cottage in einer malerischen Umgebung. Das cottage und die Kirche direkt nebenan aus dem 13 Jh. Es gibt sogar einen kleinen Dorfladen der täglich geöffnet ist und Tea Rooms. Tolle Spaziergänge dirkekt vom Cottage zum River Dart. Wunderschöner Garten voller Frühlingsblumen.

C'est ce qu'on appelle une location "Wahoo" :). Le dépaysement est assuré au moment où vous entrez : ce petit cottage a une âme, et en meme temps, il est tres bien aménagé. Nous avons voyage avec nos 3 enfants (13, 8 et 5 ans), qui ont aussi apprécié le lieu. Cela nous a tellement plu, que nous avons decide de rester á l'intérieur et de profiter du lieu le 3eme jour : jeux de société et musique, petites balades autour du cottage, sans oublier les délicieux cream teas du Community Shop á 2 pas. Bref, une perle.
