It is an ideal place to base yourself for an exploration of the far South West of England and was built in the 1850s. The house is full of character and only a mile and half from the Market Town of Hatherleigh and 6 minutes drive from Okehampton and the 10mins from the A30.

We have prepared the let with great attention to detail and proudly offer something a little different for your stay away from home and which includes all your creature comforts.

The Devon region

Beautiful Cornish beaches, gently rolling Devonshire hills and miles of lush English countryside make our landscape heaven for anyone who loves the great outdoors.


Tarka Country is situated in the heart of northern Devon. This area of the south west of England embraces a stunning variety of countryside, including rolling farmland, rugged coast and wild moors. Henry Williamson based his classic novel 'Tarka the Otter' on actual locations in northern Devon.

Every Tuesday the town comes to life with its flourishing market consisting of a small mammals and poultry auction, good local produce, homemade cakes, and a household auction for all your bargins and much more.

BBC's SpringWatch was filmed for a couple of years only a few miles from here and has been the location of other big TV and Film events including Jam & Jerusalem and recently Steve Spielberg's take on the novel and play 'Warhorse' by local author Michael Morpurgo.

"Woodpeckers, A well equipped, beautiful, peaceful and relaxing retreat."

My family of five (three generations), stayed at Pressland House for ten days this August. We were made very welcome by the extremely friendly owners, Denise and Tony. Woodpeckers is a very well equipped 3 bedroom accommodation on three floors. All the 'mod cons' to make your holiday enjoyable, a real home from home. We had a lovely stay, the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The weather was a mixed bag, as you come to expect when holidaying in this country! But, didn't stop us exploring. Denise and Tony could have not been more helpful, suggesting places to visit, places to eat etc. We had some car trouble whilst there and they could suggest a good garage and even offered us a lift. We would happily recommend it and hope to re-visit ourselves next year.
