The Hemphouse - Nr Peter Tavy, Tavistock, Devon, Dartmoor, England - Sleeps 5+1
The Hemphouse (name after the hemp insulation) is one of three self-catering holiday homes located on a small holding within the boundaries of the Dartmoor National Park, on the western edge. Ideal for families or friends, The Hemphouse can accommodate up to five guests. Larger parties of up to fifteen can also be accommodated if all three properties are rented together providing an ideal venue for groups to holiday together with a good degree of personal space.
Reasonably priced, the cottages provide an ideal retreat for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits with good opportunities on the doorstep for walking, cycling, hiking and horse riding (should you want to bring your horse on holiday, stabling is available). A magical place, Dartmoor offers wild rugged scenery and beautiful countryside to explore - a perfect back drop for any outdoor activity! With the open moor at Cox Tor being easily accessed up a 'no through' lane and just ten minutes away, you have miles of open moorland just waiting to be explored.
Tavistock is one of the South West's most popular market towns and is located just three miles from the cottages. Providing a good choice of interesting and essential shops, restaurants and pubs, plus a local market, riverside park, leisure centre and theatre, there are plenty of amenities and eating establishments within easy reach. There are many pretty villages nearby surrounding both Devon and Eastern Cornwall and a number of National Trust properties and gardens to visit. Peter Tavy is the nearest village and has a church and a 15th Century inn serving good food.
