    Description

    The Old Stable offers two beautiful and individual apartments for 2 - 3 guests, one ground floor, The Shippon, and one first floor apartment, The Hayloft and Zingaro Wagon, which sits at the end of the Old Stable garden in its own quiet private garden space.

    The Shippon is offered on a self catered basis or you can choose to stay on a bed and breakfast basis. We will bring your breakfast hamper over into your apartment in the evening, so you can relax and enjoy breakfast at your leisure the following morning. We will replenish your hamper for you once you have left for the day. Self catering or bed and breakfast, we aim to be as flexible as possible.

    The Shippon is the ground floor apartment in The Old Stable.
    The front door is accessed over cobbles and there are two steps up to the door. The door opens into the main living area of the apartment. To the right is the kitchen, which is well equipped and offers a four ring electric hob, electric oven, fridge and dishwasher, with plenty of kitchen cupboards. You will find a supply of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sugar and milk in the fridge on your arrival. There are also essential herbs, spices and oil.

    There is a sofa bed in the sitting area (which can be used for one adult or two small guests), TV with Freeview, DVD and a dining table, which will seat four.

    Leading off to the right of the main living area is a separate double bedroom, with double size bed. A hairdryer is provided.

    To the left of the main area is a shower room, separate toilet and utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer. Soap and shower wash are provided for your arrival.

    There is internal access to both apartments, so they can be let together. Both apartments can lock access to the other apartment. There is a cupboard at the top of the stairs where you can access ironing and cleaning facilities should you need them.

    Outside the front door is a garden for guests to enjoy, with garden table and benches seating four and BBQ.

    The Greenhouse Spa, next to The Old Stable, offers a two person cedar hot tub and sauna and we can also offer the services of a local beautician if you fancy some pampering and relaxation during your stay. The Spa is shared between the 3 small properties and each property has its own private times.

    The apartment is centrally heated during the chillier months.
    Bed linen and towels are included.
    Plenty of off road parking adjacent to the Old Stable.
    Free WiFi.
    No pets please.
    No smoking.
    Dustbin and recycling boxes can be found by the garden gate into the owners' back garden.

    Location description

    Dowland is a small hamlet set in beautiful, unspoilt Devon countryside, looking south towards the northern end of Dartmoor; a perfect venue for a relaxing break or for exploring nearby villages, Dartmoor, Exmoor, RHS Rosemoor and the coastlines of Devon and Cornwall. The Old Stable is situated on the Tarka Trail, a 180 mile long trail that follows in the footsteps of the character Tarka the Otter from Henry Williamson’s famous novel. The Trail splits into 2 loops and we are situated on the South Loop. Also nearby are three Devon Wildlife Reserves, Halsdon, Meeth Quarry, and Ash Moor, which offer some spectacular woodland, river and meadow walks. The area is a walkers paradise. Halsdon Wood offers a walk which takes you to sites which inspired some of James Ravilious' best-known photographs. James Ravilious took more than seventy thousand images before his death in 1999 and these can be seen at the Beaford Arts archive, a short drive away at Beaford. The Royal Photographic Society called his work “a unique body of work, unparalleled at least in this country for its scale and quality”.

    Although the setting is rural and quiet we can offer some wonderful places to eat and visit. Dolton, a mile away to the north, has a small supermarket and post office, butchers and two good pubs, The Rams Head and The Royal Oak. A mile to the south you can find The Duke of York in Iddesleigh, home to Michael Morpurgo's War Horse Valley, another great pub serving good food.

    Mid Devon is a quiet, peaceful and very unspoilt part of the country, where you can wander along the narrow Devon lanes and glimpse rural views through gateways. An area not yet commercialised or teeming with visitors and traffic, a reminder of ages past and a slower, less stressful, way of life.

    Tourist attractions

    RHS Rosemoor Torrington, Castle Drogo Chagford, Lydford Gorge, Arlington Court, Devon Wildlife Reserve Halsdon Woods, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Michael Morpurgo's War Horse Valley.
