    “We had a lovely stay at The Coach House.”

    The property itself was well furnished and very comfortable. Great location and we soon got used to the narrow lanes leading to the property. Would highly recommend, however, we would make the following comments: we found the stairs quite slippy (no shoes allowed upstairs) and our dog fell down a couple of times; maybe some grips could be fitted?

    The property itself was well furnished and very comfortable. Great location and we soon got used to the narrow lanes leading to the property. Would highly recommend, however, we would make the following comments: we found the stairs quite slippy (no shoes allowed upstairs) and our dog fell down a couple of times; maybe some grips could be fitted? Upon arrival I was worried regarding our dog and their beautiful new carpets upstairs; maybe provide an outside tap or water butt to help clean dog's feet? Also, we struggled getting off the drive (it was very wet with all the rain) as it's quite muddy and your turning onto a very narrow lane; maybe try and level the end of the drive? All these points are just my opinion and NOT critical. As already said, would highly recommend and would return ourselves. Thank you to the owners for messaging us about an item of clothing we left behind. Many thanks for a great stay.

The property

Moretonhampstead 4.3 miles.

Situated within the Dartmoor National Park, on a working farm just outside Bridford, Devon is The Coach House at Thorn Farm.

This stylish stable conversion is ideal for a small family or two couples and is home to a wealth of quality and character features, including exposed stone walls and beams, a staircase crafted from ash, reclaimed from the farm, and all the home comforts you need for a self-catering stay.

Private driveway parking greets you on arrival, before making your way into the ground-floor space, which hosts a handy utility area to keep your clothes refreshed.

From here, climb the stairs to the open-plan living space, sure to be the social hub during your stay.

The kitchen has all you need to enjoy memorable suppers, while the open plan dining space welcomes you to prepare your meals with conversation flowing.

Unwind in the sitting area with a film on the Smart TV, or perhaps just enjoy each other's company with a board game and glass of wine.

As you grow tired, refresh before bed in the en-suites; the double room has a shower room, while the master king-size plays host to a freestanding bath for a much-needed soak after a busy day of exploring.

An external door leading to the garden is a feature of both bedrooms; take care descending the stone steps that lead down to the outdoor dining area and bask in the sun, or venture off to explore the charming paddocks and working-farm grounds.

When you're ready to explore beyond the idyllic grounds, you can find an abundance of walking and cycling routes in the area, with the nearest point of interest being Heltor Rock, where picture-perfect views of the national park can be seen.

The village centre of Bridford is also nearby with its Inn and Woodland Park.

Should you wish to dine out or stock up on the essentials, make your way into Moretonhampstead via the pretty country lanes: a charming town on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park with a handful of independent shops and eateries.

For a day exploring the area's waterfalls, find Becky Falls Ancient Woodland Park and Canonteign Falls within reach by car, a perfect day out with a picnic.

If the city is more your style, you can spend a day shopping in Exeter, while if you want some seaside fun, travel a little further to the Exmouth coast.

For a gorgeous holiday home in a scenic area, choose The Coach House at Thorn Farm.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
