    “The Hayloft is an amazing beautiful place.”

    We were met by Peter who showed us to The Hayloft,when we walked in we were amazed at how lovely the place was. This is a barn conversion which has been done to the highest standards,the equipment in the Hayloft are all high quality and there is everything you require,right down to things like dog leads and towels for your dogs.

    We were met by Peter who showed us to The Hayloft,when we walked in we were amazed at how lovely the place was. This is a barn conversion which has been done to the highest standards,the equipment in the Hayloft are all high quality and there is everything you require,right down to things like dog leads and towels for your dogs. There is lovely log burner to sit next to on cooler nights. The views from almost every window over the lovely Dartmoor countryside are outstanding,on the only day we had rain, just for a few hours,we spent the time just looking out the windows,great, who needs to watch television when you can just look at beauty out of your window?Astrid the owner was lovely, she has gone to the trouble of making a list of walks in the area,one for each day,she is very informative about the area and is very approachable for places to visit etc. We traveled with two dogs and they absolutely loved it,either in the garden or the many woodland walks from the property up onto the moors or down to the rivers all beautiful. This is by far the best holiday cottage we have ever stopped at and hope to return soon. My only regret is I hadn’t found this place twenty years ago when I was young enough to do more of the splendid walks in the area. If ever a property deserves more than 5 stars, then this is it. Loved it
