1, Stoodley Barn is the larger part of an old, granite barn converted about 20 years ago and is full of character and charm. It is 600ft (190 metres) above sea level and the views are magnificent.

The smaller bedroom has a standard single bed with an extra pull-out bed for a child. The main bedroom is cosy and comfortable with a normal size double bed, en-suite WC and wash basin, and panoramic views for 20 miles. The family bathroom and WC is also on this upper floor. Visitors have the benefit of the southerly facing garden and there is parking for 2 cars.
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.
