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. Thank god it hasn't been renovated and the soul stripped from it. The chance to stay in a house so special should be cherished.

No frills, but always spotlessly clean. Old doesn't always mean dirty! Basic kitchen facilities but plentiful supples, the kitchen is warm and inviting and we have joked many times that the table is magnetic - you think you're going out, but then the kettle goes on again, papers get opened, toast goes on the aga...

The gardens are wonderful and on a sunny day the place feels so very peaceful and relaxing. The surrounding area outstanding, Dartmoor truly beautiful, Chagford a lovely town with fantastic shops and pubs. Special mention to the Ring O Bells for a local atmosphere and Blacks deli for some amazing nibbles. The walk into Chagford down the lanes is also lovely, traffic infrequent out of season and woodpeckers and buzzards to be spotted.

Visit with friends, drink wine, eat cheese and wonder whether its the wine or the floors that made you fall over! Visit with family and the kids will love the secret staircase and the tree swing. Get outside on a clear night and look up - amazing star spotting!

If you love old properties and want to get out walking in an amazing place, coming home to somewhere warm and perfect for large groups, book Hole Farm. You'll want to visit again and again!

This wonderful devon longhouse was totally unloved, dirty and lacked any kind of comfort.
We left after 2 days as the house was uncomfortable, the fire smoked badly and we were plagued with wasps[in dec??]
One of our party was disabled. Very upsetting for him so not recommended for anyone with walking difficulties
The lack of care in the furnishings, the cleanliness , and quality of everything was not up to even a 1*.
Very disappointed and it spoilt my birthday treat for my family.
