Self Catering Holiday Accommodation
Near to Tavistock & Plymouth

At Dartmoor Holidays we have 3 self catering barn conversions on the western slopes of Dartmoor with fantastic views. It takes 10 minutes to walk up a no through lane to open moor. Tavistock is 3 miles away. The Shippen - sleeps 2 to 4, The Hemphouse - sleeps 5 (+3) & The Barn - sleeps 6..

All 3 converted granite buildings with exposed beams are set right on the edge of Dartmoor. Open all year. Walking from here is wonderful. We can lend maps and advise places to explore. Pets are welcome & space usually available for your horse too or you can ride over the moor from nearby riding stables.

The Barn has a large open plan living area upstairs with glorious views, large log burner & plenty of space for 15 people meet up - ideal if you book two or all three of our properties. An extra table is available to allow large groups to eat together.

Our newly converted 'The Hemphouse' is a wonderfully 'green' building with hemp insulation etc.

The Shippen has a delightful galleried bedroom & a newly installed log burner which is believed to be the world’s most efficient wood burning stove. We love it!

We are happy to show visitors our smallholding with Icelandic sheep, Golden Guernsey goats, Dales ponies (all rare breeds), an old quarter horse and ‘green’ installations: pv cells, hot water solar tubes, biomass boiler & homemade methane gas collector. Shortbreaks available apart from school holidays. There’s a brilliant dog friendly pub in Peter Tavy (about a mile away).
