The property

One of two adjoining cottages, Carriage House is tucked away in a woodland clearing on the historic Holne Chase Estate, nestling on the south east edge of Dartmoor National Park - absolute bliss for those seeking a break away from it all.

Sympathetically restored to maximise the sense of space and light, you'll find accommodation designed and finished to a high standard.

Oak flooring throughout the main downstairs rooms gives both a sense of style and practicality while there is plenty of flexibility on offer with dividing doors which can be fully opened, for more space, or closed, if you want a cosier feel.

On both floors, there is plenty of sleeping accommodation, mostly with ensuite bathroom s, so ample room for a large family.

In front of the house, there's a lovely terrace for sitting out, super for relaxing and enjoy the views over the lawns and woodland beyond.

A particular bonus for guests is that fly fishing for salmon and sea trout can be arranged on a private and higly regarded stretch of the Rivert Dart which passes through the grounds.

For larger parties, the cottage can be rented alongside - Groom's Cottage accommodating up to 13 guests.

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.

Please note that in Bedroom 2 the zip n' link bed will be made up as a double unless otherwise requested.
