This place is absolutely stunning. The main farmhouse is full of history and character and has everything you need for a large group. It has the added benefit of an additional cottage with two further bedrooms. The location is perfect, a short car ride to the village of Chagford, the reservoir is only five mins away and you are quickly out on to the open moor. I would highly recommend this place.

On the 2nd day of our 3rd visit never been disappointed whatever the weather conditions, including that electrical storm last night (wasn't that something else spectacular!!). Place is clean and tidy and has that welcoming feel and the family just love it.

Hole Farm is an incredible place, full of history, and ideally placed for exploring the delights of Dartmoor.. What price the peace and quiet, if this is something you value. The furnishings, whilst being comfortable, are very much in keeping with the whole ambience of the place. We are in the middle of our stay, and already know we will be sad to leave!

As someone that doesn't normally write reviews, I felt compelled to leave one to counter the poor review previously left. This house might not be for everyone, BUT...

Hole Farm is an amazing place to stay! Full of history, fascinating and tranquil, it really is the perfect getaway.

I am booked with friends to stay this year, but have visited with family 4 previously. My parents are regulars having stayed 10+ times.

Yes, the floors are wonky, the sofa's have seen better days and the fire can be a bit smoky, but this house is old and full of character. Than
