Description from owner

Description

Situated in the ancient Dartmoor settlement of Hookner, Lower Hookner Farm nestles between the heights of King Tor and Easdon Tor in a secluded valley at the end of a quiet lane.

The farm has woodland, fields and streams offering a profusion of wild flowers and wild life, which visitors are welcome to explore. In addition our gates give you direct access to the open moor and the Mariners' way footpath runs through the farm.

We are a working hill farm with moorland rights in an environmentally sensitive area, using traditional methods to manage our herd of suckler cows. We also keep horses, chickens and ducks. We are a dog friendly farm and welcome well behaved, under control dogs.

The nearest village is North Bovey, 2 miles, with a thatched pub beside the tree studdied green. Moretonhampstead and Chagford, each 4 miles, are the nearest shopping towns.

The lovely beaches of S Devon and the wild and rugged N Devon Coasts are both within one hours driving distance.

The cottage opens onto a large, south-facing veranda, which extends the length of the building and has some of the best views on Dartmoor, across open fields and moorland. It has a well established private garden, with a small stream and a pond. The veranda is a wonderful place to have a barbeque in the evening, watching the ducks on the pond or simply sitting back and enjoying the Dartmoor views.

North Bovey

Dartmoor: “the last great wilderness in Southern England” . is approx 365 square miles of beautiful unspoilt countryside. Many of it's heather-covered hills have rocky Tors to explore. Marvellous for walking, riding, picnicking, and for being alone. Just off its edge, amid woods, valleys and farmed hills, are many pretty
villages (sometimes thatched) and very lively small towns. The half of the moor north of the B3212 is the highest and wildest; no villages within it, almost no cultivation. The southern half (where we are ) has the most spectacular tors, best wooded valleys, a few villages like Widecombe, Buckland and Poundsgate in green-field 'oases'. The local Rriver Teign is an exceptionally beautiful river valley.
The River Dart is also spectacular, all the way to the sea at Dartmouth. Very lovely, too, are the valleys of the rivers Avon, Erme, Walkham and Tavy; Lydford Gorge owned by the National Trust, is one of the western moor's most dramatic places to visit. There are several good pubs in the immediate area that all offer good food, an up to date list will be found in the cottage. The Dartmoor National Park Headquarters is at Bovey Tracey.

“Amazing location and beautiful cottage, we loved it!”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2015

Our two young children, my husband and I had a wonderful week at Stable Cottage. My husband carefully chose this location as it is on the doorstep of so much beautiful Dartmoor scenery where we did lots of walking. (Even suitable for our 4 and 2 year olds). Susie assured me before arrival that there were some lovely camping spots on the farm, how right she was! We all squeezed into the cottage on our first night, but subsequently my husband and son camped on the farm in a wild flower filled meadow next to a small river with a tire swing....heaven for a 4 year old! The horses, ducks and chickens were a huge bonus for our children, as was the lovely garden. We were also invited to meet the neighbours' lambs. The cottage itself is cosy, well equipped, clean and, as other reviewers mentioned, has an incredibly comfy bed! It also has a fantastic power shower! Best of all though is its total tranquillity and peace. Although Susie and James were away the week we stayed, they left comprehensive notes and their friend who was housesitting and Samantha the cleaner were both extremely friendly and helpful. All in all we didn't want to leave and have every intention of returning to Stable Cottage, I love it!!

“a beautiful and relaxing place, wonderful to walk straight out onto the moors”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2013

Stable Cottage is a lovely place for two and Susie and James were very welcoming. Their farm is nestled down in lush green lanes below the wild moor and is beautiful and unspoilt. It was lovely to have bread and milk and fresh eggs from their hens in the fridge when we arrived. The bed was comfortable, the cottage was well equipped and it was delightful to sit on the veranda to eat looking over to Easdon Tor and the beautiful garden with the ducks pottering about near the pond. It is very quiet, being at the end of a lane and there are lots of walks onto Dartmoor from the cottage. One day we walked over to Grimspound where there is a prehistoric village. The hedgerows are full of flowers and the farm is a haven for wildlife. I have never seen so many butterflies! It is only a short drive to shops in Moreton Hampstead and Chagford and other parts of Dartmoor close by, but we spent more time walking from the cottage, such a wonderful place.

“Quiet ,comfortable and brilliant location for walking”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

This beautiful quiet location , was easy to find but we felt like we were well off the beaten track. The owners were on hand and helpful but never in the way. The accomodation was perfect for a couple with our dog and we spent most days out walking and cycling from the house or with a short drive before returning back to a roaring fire and dinner cooked that we cooked in the well organised kitchen. Lovely flowers and Easter eggs to greet us we couldn't have asked for more and we would definitely return.
