                                                              Great country retreat with lots of rural activies and beautiful sourroundings

                                                              We had a very good week at Sages and managed to bike the Tarka Trail from Meeth to Fremington with almost no spring rain (a brilliant route and definitely the direction to go on) as well as having a beautiful day walking on Hartland, where Docton Mill was all that was promised in the guide book, and another on Dartmoor surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife. We found the village of Dolton to be very pretty and welcoming - we used the fish and chip van, Ram's Head and the very handy and well stocked local shop, although the Royal Oak changed hands in the week we were there so we were unable to compare the two pubs and their food! The brand new bathroom and shower all worked perfectly - with a fantastic enormous and luxurious bath! The set up of the property - with walled garden, field and place to close off the warm kitchen at night - was perfect for our dogs as well our family of 5. We had a very restful week and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. It was like staying in a Georgian home from home rather than a holiday let!

                                                              Wonderful weekend break in a beautiful location

                                                              Me and my partner had a lovely Valentine's Weekend break here 12th-15th Feb, and we are both so glad we chose the Hayloft! The place is just stunning! Really well appointed, spacious and the high beamed ceiling and Velux windows made the apartment feel huge, bright and airy... Jill and Paul were fantastic hosts, really lovely people, happy to show us around and cater to our needs, providing us with all the essentials; tea, coffee, sugar, milk, oil, herbs and spices etc, as well as little cupcakes and chocs on the table when we arrived, which was a really lovely personal touch! Everything you need for your stay is in the apartment; smart HDTV, free Wi-Fi, massive collection of books, a small yet perfectly equipped kitchen including a washer/drier, a fantastic shower, plenty of storage and hanging space, and of course the huge double bed... You could literally fit 4 people in it! We did venture out a couple times, and there are plenty of pubs on the doorstep if a meal out is on the cards. All in all a very pleasant and relaxing break away in the tranquil countryside, would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from it all!

                                                              Old Beams is an ideal spot if you’re looking for a remote quiet, except for the cockerel, retreat, yet is only a short drive away from the coast and a number of inland attractions and local pubs. The Tarka Trail also runs alongside Old Beams for those who fancy rambling. The accommodation is exactly as described. Comfy beds, well equipped modern kitchen, cosy lounge complete with wood burner and the added advantage of having one large bedroom + small loo downstairs if you have a guest with restricted mobility. Would also recommend the nearby D&S Supplies on the Old Airfield Estate, it’s suggested for your supply of logs but is also an Aladdin’s Cave inside. One cautionary note, the last mile or two is quite narrow and, if you don’t have a 4X4, challenging. Would suggest you try and arrive in the daylight.
