“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!!!

“Luxurious conversion on authentic working farm”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Granary is a tasteful conversion with all amenities and stunning views across the hills. We loved it! Nick and Sarah are genuinely lovely hosts who are helpful and kind when needed but otherwise unobtrusive. The farm is an amazing place, full of old restored farm implements and has its own lake at the bottom where you can sit. The dogs are friendly and welcome you on arrival. I highly recommend.
