Located in the upper yard level, it is enclosed by a granite wall and has a sheltered lawned garden outside the front door. Its elevated position affords great views over the roof of Hay Tor cottage below to Ripon Tor in the distance
A large entrance hallway - ideal for lots of muddy boots, coats and soggy dogs! opens up into a corridor leading to two ground floor bedrooms and family bathroom and a large open plan kitchen/living/dining room. Central Heating Log Burning Stove Dishwasher.
Upstairs there is a spacious "loft style" bedroom suite comprising ensuite bathroom and dressing area. Central Heating Log Burning Stove Dishwasher.
Together with Saddletor next door, these two cottages together are ideal for larger gatherings as they are separated off from the other cottages and share their own drive.

Location perfect for beautiful walks, drives and climbing Tors. There are several really good family friendly pubs and cafe's within walking and short driving distance. You always know that your children will sleep well at Holwell because the air is so pure and they will be so exhausted from their hikes etc. Holwell is a place where all the family can have a fun and relaxing time. There are so many natural pursuits to enjoy that don't cost any more money. One of the activities that is available all year round on Dartmoor is fly fishing. You can choose from the tributaries of the River Dart on the high moor where the water first rises to the wider reaches down near Totnes. Holwell is home to a varied and rich wildlife. Flora and fauna greet you at every turn. On Dartmoor there is really something for everyone. Gentle strolls along easily navigated paths combine with more ambitious hiking routes which will keep you going for up to a day at a time. The Dartmoor National Park offers a really great Guided Walk service and we can arrange for a Park Ranger to take you for walks in advance of your stay. Certainly a “greener” approach to getting about on your visit to Dartmoor. We can hire in cycles for the whole family that are here for your arrival and duration of stay. The location is also ideal for day trips to Torquay, Paignton, the Eden project etc. Something for everyone at Holwell Holiday Cottages.
Saddle Tor, the bluebells, sunshine and family made for a wonderful time on Holwell Farm. Thank you Sophia, you are wonderful. The McDowall Family.
What a pity we have to leave Holwell Farm, it has been 3 weeks of 'bliss' walking and cycling on the moors, discovering magical spots like Dendle's and Wistman's Wood, and coming home to a cosy cottage.
Thank you for a very enjoyable 7 days. Saddle Tor and Chinkwell Tor were perfect for our family of 13. Spacious, comfortable and genuinely perfect home away from home for us to spend some quality time together as a family. Thank you. Ireland Family.
