Stable Cottage

Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
North Bovey, Dartmoor National Park, Devon, England
Situated in the ancient Dartmoor settlement of Hookner, Lower Hookner Farm nestles between the heights of King Tor and Easdon Tor in a secluded valley at the end of a quiet lane.

The farm has woodland, fields and streams offering a profusion of wild flowers and wild life, which visitors are welcome to explore. In addition our gates give you direct access to the open moor and the Mariners' way footpath runs through the farm.

We are a working hill farm with moorland rights in an environmentally sensitive area, using traditional methods to manage our herd of suckler cows. We also keep horses, chickens and ducks. We are a dog friendly farm and welcome well behaved, under control dogs.

The nearest village is North Bovey, 2 miles, with a thatched pub beside the tree studdied green. Moretonhampstead and Chagford, each 4 miles, are the n...

A year after our first visit, we returned. It felt great to be back. I immediately relaxed as I opened the door and stepped into the cottage (see my review last year for details of the cottage). Happily little had changed. This year's lack of...More

We returned to this cottage and really enjoyed our week. The cottage is well equipped and very cosy and peaceful. The garden is beautiful and there is a lovely view of the moor. We look forward to coming back next year.

A lovely cosy cottage in rural setting. Great for getting away from it all. Everything you need to complete a relaxing week away , although only a stones throw away for the more adventurous to explore Dartmoor. Great base for exploring, plenty of walks from...More

About the neighbourhood
Dartmoor: “the last great wilderness in Southern England” . is approx 365 square miles of beautiful unspoilt countryside. Many of it's heather-covered hills have rocky Tors to explore. Marvellous for walking, riding, picnicking, and for being alone. Just off its edge, amid woods, valleys and farmed hills, are many pretty
villages (sometimes thatched) and very lively small towns. The half of the moor north of the B3212 is the highest and wildest; no villages within it, almost no cultivation. The southern half (where we are ) has the most spectacular tors, best wooded valleys, a few villages like Widecombe, Buckland and Poundsgate in green-field 'oases'. The local Rriver Teign is an exceptionally beautiful river valley.
The River Dart is also spectacular, all the way to the s...
