Family of 4 (2 boys 13 & 15).
We arrived to a warm & friendly welcome from Astrid who introduced us to our accommodation and was only too happy to explain everything in detail. Fresh eggs from the resident chickens and freshly cut daffodils were a nice little extra.
An extremely spacious open plan living area that suited us perfectly which made for a relaxing living space. Having an en-suite to all bedrooms was a great boon, especially with 2 teenagers. For those of you who like a real fire the wood burner is just the ticket to get the room nice and cosy.
My youngest particularly enjoyed feeding the horses in the adjacent field the odd carrot & apple and making acquaintance with the sheep.
This really is a peaceful location which is great for anyone wanting to get away from it all. For those wanting to explore there are plenty a walks to go on. Our boys particularly enjoyed a soggy walk to Becky Falls through the woods, making our way from the bottom up to the Cafe for a well-earned piece of cake & coffee.
Following Astrid's recommendation we drove out to Grimspound and walked back to the Hayloft taking in some beautiful views of Dartmoor (very kindly driving me back to pick up the car afterwards).
Although on the edge of Dartmoor, Newton Abbot is only 20-25 mins or so away and most other urban areas are easily accessed.
All in all this was a fabulous relaxing week and Astrid makes a wonderful host; the boy's definitely want to come back.
This was our second visit to The Hayloft in 2 years.
The accommodation is spectacular. High quality throughout with ample space and equipment for six adults. Each bedroom with an en suite is a real bonus.
The situation is perfect for walking, cycling, sightseeing throughout Dartmoor.
The owners are delightful and make you so welcome. They do all they can to make your stay relaxing and carefree.

We recently stayed in The Lofthouse and were mesmerised by the property and surrounding countryside. We were lucky enough to see the small baby lambs. Fantastic walks and amazing pubs that serve up great food. We will be returning as we never had enough time to explore all of the surrounding area.
