Stoodley Barn  - Holne,

Stoodley Barn is the main part of a wonderful granite-built barn with 2 bedrooms and offers plenty of character and charm. Located some 600 feet above sea level, the views from the barn are absolutely magnificent.

Within this barn conversion there is a lovely spacious lounge complete with beamed ceiling, limestone fireplace and Freeview multi-channel TV, kitchen with lovely countryside views and a downstairs loo. Upstairs, there is a family bathroom and 2 bedrooms, one of which has a single bed plus an additional pull-out bed for a child and the main bedroom with its double bed and en-suite WC. The main bedroom has wonderful country views. Outside there is a generous south facing garden along with plenty of parking. Pets are very welcome (except in the bedrooms) and there is no extra charge or deposit for them.

Stoodley, derived from the Anglo-Saxon meaning "Place of the Stallions", is a tiny hamlet with only 3 other houses tucked about 150 yards away. The village of Holne, under a mile away and 15/20 minutes walk has a parish church, shop and tea rooms and ancient medieval Church House Inn - a typical, unspoilt English pub.

Situated within Dartmoor National Park, some of the most beautiful parts of the moor are on the doorstep. For those who like traditional English scenery with small fields, hedgerows and copses, 1 Stoodley Barn is on the edge of and overlooks the South Hams area of Devon which epitomises the English landscape. The lovely unspoilt beaches and coves of this area are all around 35 minutes drive. River Dart Adventures, Buckfastleigh Butterly Farm, South Devon Steam Railway, and Pennywell Farm are among the attractions nearby.

Many of our guests return year after year to enjoy the peace and quiet of this unique location.

Stoodley Barn is in a secluded rural location with superb views of the countryside, in the Dartmoor National Park. Should you hit a period of bad weather during your stay (and this is England!) you will find that you are not far from civilisation. One of the beauties of Stoodley is the absence of traffic and main roads, but we are only 10 minutes from the A38 which means that both Plymouth and the cathedral city of Exeter are an easy half hour drive. The market town of Newton Abbot is 20 minutes drive, as is the beautiful riverside Tudor town of Totnes.

More locally is the ancient town of Ashburton with its period Georgian houses and plethora of antique shops. Through National Trust Hembury Woods and its Neolithic hill fort is the Benedictine Abbey of Buckfast, rebuilt earlier this century in original Norman style. It is thought that some of the granite in Stoodley Barn was taken from the ruins. For Sherlock Holmes fanatics, you are in Baskerville land. The so-called Baskerville Hall is nearby. The evil lord of the manor who inspired the tale is buried in Buckfastleigh churchyard. Other places of interest within easy distance are Castle Drogo and Drewsteignton on northern Dartmoor.

Nearest Train Station or Airport: Newton Abbot and Totnes Stations - 20 mins drive. Exter and Plymouth Airports - 30 mins.

Recommended Places to Visit: Plymouth, Exeter, Totnes, beaches and resorts - not forgetting Dartmoor itself.

Annual Events: There are numerous events locally during the summer months and cinemas, theatre etc in Exeter and Plymouth.

Recommended Places to Eat Out: Church House Inn, Holne,The Tradesman's Arms, Scoriton and most of the moorland pubs.

Local Sports: River swimming 1 mile, 2 open air pools 3 miles, beaches half an hour, golf courses 25 minutes drive. Horse riding nearby.


A delightful Devon village on the southern slopes of Dartmor with quintessentially English country inn and little shop with tea rooms.
