About Helen Holman

I know how important it is to find a perfect venue for a holiday, which is why I bought The Bolt Hole Holiday Cottage a few years ago. It has been very successful over the last few years with great reviews left by the people who stay. I have made sure that it has everything you need for a comfy stay - it is pet friendly and I don't mind doing changeovers during the week. I work hard at giving a good service in the hope that people will come back and stay again.

Helen Holman purchased this barn in 2011

Why Helen Holman chose West Devon

The Bolt Hole Holiday Cottage is situated very close to Dartmoor. I have lived in the area for many years and there is nothing better than the fresh, open moorland for long walks, or even just to sit and watch. The cottage is close to the small town of Chagford where you will find some small shops, eating places and outside swimming pool. It is also close to other towns, Castle Drogo, Gidleigh Park and a short drive from the coast. The area has much to offer for young and old - an area to be explored and enjoy.

What makes this barn unique

The cottage is located not far from the A30 - the main link to Cornwall, so access is easy and straightforward.

The Bolt Hole has two bedrooms, where you have the choice of two single beds or one super king size bed in each room. The underfloor heating will keep you warm during the colder months, but in the better weather there is a private back garden for you to enjoy the sun and relax.

The cottage is also pet friendly - any more than two dogs please contact me!

I do not have a fixed changeover day - I am happy to do this any day of the week as I know some people do not like travelling at weekends - this also enables me to cater for shorter breaks (not less than 2 nights).

Lovely- well maintained, light, clean and excellent layout when you have 2 small children and 2 dogs

We only needed accommodation for two nights while we were in Devon for a wedding. The property was perfect and all instructions clear and concise! The dogs were very happy and we all loved the walks around the area. The locals were also friendly and accommodating!

A lovely property, well appointed, middle-of-nowhere location

  • 4 of 5

It is really difficult to find fault with the property, we had a lovely stay and the provision of a cot and high chair made traveling with a young child really manageable!

Fantastic cottage with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this cottage for a weekend in March. It was lovely and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. There was lots of information provided at the cottage about the local area and things to do. We took our dog Rusty for a days walk in Dartmoor and did a few of the Tors, and went to Lydford gorge on the second day which was easy to get to from the cottage. The pub next the cottage was friendly and served a nice cider which was much needed after a days walking. We will defiantly be returning, Thank you to the owners for their great hospitality.
