“Lovely and peaceful”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Myself and my girlfriend had a very nice stay here at the granary(June 2016), the location is very quiet and peaceful with great views, the accommodation itself has a very nice rustic feel to it and is a very nice place to spend the night!
We only met Sarah and Nick briefly but they are very nice hosts and would definitely visit again.
And the visit was made complete by our new furry mates Holly and Scruff :)

“Excellent location!”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a peaceful stay in the 'Granary'. Location is absolutely fantastic! Its less than 10 minutes from the nearest main road, but once you enter the farm it seems like you are in a far remote hillside.

Sarah & Nick are great hosts , they made us feel very welcomed. Superbly converted cottage with all modern amenities and well quipped kitchen. We would definitely be going back next year! I have no reservations in recommending this place to my friends and family.

“dartmoor oasis”
Reviewed 1 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Took the usual route of the online search for a quiet property within easy reach of the start of a trail race I had entered (puretrail.uk).
The directions to the property were spot on.The location & property itself were idealic.We were warmly greeted upon arrival & all 'amenities' advertised were available. The Granary is a perfect size for a short break, i.e. not claustrophobic.It is tastefully decorated in neutral colours. The information available should suit most tastes,e.g. local maps,information sheets etc.
In terms of eating out, the Carpenters Arms in Ilsington didn't let us down.
I /we would definietly stay here again.

“So so quiet.....”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Booked The Granary to have a peaceful and quiet few days away, we were certainly not disappointed ....... I have not slept so well in a long time, the location is ideal , isolated but not too far from local amenities. Spent the Saturday up on the Moor walking for five hours and it was bliss returning to a warm house and a piping hot shower,.
The accommodation is immaculately clean, with everything you need, and more.
If you are looking for a piece of sanity this is for you, no hassle, no traffic just peace and quiet.
The owners are extremely thoughtful, helpful ,but never intrusive.
I wish them every success in the future, they deserve it!!!
