“A beautiful , well -equipped cottage.Comfortable, cosy and welcoming.”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Well, what a find!
My father lives in Ashburton, and we wanted to visit him over the Easter weekend. Hotels in the area were either booked up, or far to expensive to stay for 3 nights for a family of 4.
Trauling through the internet, I eventually came across The Old Stables. Loved the photos and of course the price suited.
After having friendly emails from the owner to confirm our booking , we eventually arrived after a long journey from Hampshire!
The down side was that we had to park our car along the road, and walk through a private gate. The friendly neighbours directed us to the left and through delightful plant pots and cobbles. Once inside, the welcoming scene was superb. A huge log burner with logs supplied was a relief ,as I had forgotten what it was like on the egde of Dartmoor in the cold evenings.
The kitchen was fully equipped and a welcoming basket of fresh bread, tea, coffee , jams was a great surprise.
The bedrooms were freshly made with lovely white linen and the original beams throughout the property were stunning. The bathroom was a delight with luxurious Jacuzzi bath. Unfortunately, no separate shower cubicle, but a shower head on the bath .
In Buckfastleigh there was a local Co-op and a couple of pubs and shops to explore. The Globe Inn was really friendly, and had a musical soiree on the Thursday evening.
A great fish and chip shop was opposite.
Dartmoor is a great place to explore.We went to Scorriton the next day for lunch at the Tradesman Arms. Great beer and food-highly recommend. Magnificent scenery along with great weather, we were able to see family in a truly picturesque part of the country.
We shall be back soon, having had a very comfortable stay.
