  • “A fabulous break in a lovely setting.”

    The hosts were very welcoming and supportive throughout our visit. ...

    The hosts were very welcoming and supportive throughout our visit. The property was immaculate and comfortable high quality accommodation and facilities throughout. The cottage location itself is very hard to find… especially if arriving in the evening… and could be sign posted and described clearer given its position along a lengthy private road. At the end of the day it is a great cottage in a lovely location with a beautiful garden, fantastic views with cows and sheep grazing in the surrounding fields. Thoroughly recommend this cottage.

    - Mr Treverton, September 2021

    Thank you for completing your feedback. We are so glad you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed both the property and its location. We are sorry that you had difficulties in finding the property, it isn't possible to put up signs as the road is a local authority road and not a private road. We do advise in the directions we send out to all guests, using the What3Words app and we provide the three words, which will then bring you straight to the property. Property Owner

The property

In a splendid moorland location on the slopes of imposing Sheeps Tor and within the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, The Meeting House @ Yellowmead Farm is an idyllic Devonshire escape.

Ideally suited to two couples seeking a holiday full of outdoor pursuits, this detached barn conversion situated on the owner's farm has been wonderfully renovated with stylish interiors, and is surrounded by the stunning scenery of Dartmoor.

Head through the pretty garden and enter into the reception hall where the double height ceiling will impress, and a handy utility can be accessed, home to the washing machine.

Travel up the stairs into the contemporary open-plan living space, choosing to relax on the easy chairs with a good book or sink into the sofas while the Smart TV plays a favourite film.

Set the dining table in the corner while the chef of the group cooks up a storm across on the other side of the room, with a stylish fitted kitchen home to all the appliances you need on a self-catered stay, along with a sleek breakfast bar offering the perfect spot for evening drinks.

Following a busy day, retire to the comfort of one of the bedrooms on the ground floor, where an elegant double room boasts an en-suite shower room in a contemporary style, and a roomy super-king-size bedroom features a spacious en-suite bathroom with a separate bath and a large walk-in shower.

Enjoy spending time within the idyllic enclosed garden, home to a lovely pond along with several seating areas including decking, a patio and lawn space too.

Feel refreshed in this 'off the grid' location, with no WiFi access or phone reception, you and your loved ones can take a step into nature and rejuvenate a love for the outdoors.

Begin with exploring the slopes of Sheeps Tor, one of Dartmoor's most imposing tors, boasting beautiful views over Burrator Reservoir, before hiking up to Yellowmead Stone Circles or venturing over to Gutter Tor for those feeling energetic.

Spend an afternoon walking around the Burrator Reservoir or if you're a keen angler, purchase a permit from the Yelverton garage and head out bank fishing on the reservoir for rainbow and brown trout.

Yelverton is the nearest village with amenities including shops and a pub, while the town of Tavistock is worth visiting for the Tavistock Pannier Market, a well-established indoor market showcasing the best of the local produce, crafts and businesses.

The Tavistock canal and River Tavy offer more scenic walking and cycling spots, as does the Drake trail, a 21-mile cycling and walking route linking back to Yelverton and passing through open moorland and wooded valleys.

Other nearby attractions include The Garden House, home to over 6,000 plant species among themed gardens, and the National Trust's Buckland Abbey with an estate museum, woodland marked trails, gardens and the centuries-old abbey to explore.

Make excellent memories at The Meeting House @ Yellowmead Farm in the Dartmoor National Park.
