Ostler's is the perfect self-catering holiday cottage for couples wishing to be 'far from the madding crowd'. Found down an unmade lane, this is a modern eco 'barn conversion'—with character—based within a converted stone stable block that once served a nearby stately home. With underfloor heating, heat-recovery ventilation, solar electricity and hot water, you'll be warm and cosy in this very private, quiet and beautifully-appointed cottage. Note there are no 'hidden extras': the price is all-inclusive. Please search Trip Advisor for reviews, which are all 5*.
Please note CHANGEOVER DAY IS SATURDAY!
The MINIMUM STAY between 1st May and 1st October, and during all other holiday periods, is 1 WEEK! Short breaks (minimum 3 nights) are available from October to April but not during Christmas and Easter.
Downstairs is your well-equipped open plan kitchen area with a fridge + freezing compartment, a gas hob, built in electric oven, a dish washer, washing machine and a microwave. There's a dining table for 4. The comfortable lounge area has seating for 4, a 32" Freeview TV, DVD player and Wi-fi.
Upstairs is a spacious bedroom with king-sized (6 foot) bed, dressing table and east-facing windows to catch the morning sun, together with a modern en-suite shower room complete with bidet and large shower. Cot provided on request.
Outside you have your own private sun-drenched patio, delightful garden area and private parking space. Walk through the gate and you have a further 18 acres of gardens and grounds to explore. Why not row round the large water-lilly-fringed lake, relax in the summer house on the south shore or walk more than a mile of paths alongside the stream and through the woods? Wildlife abounds which you can observe from the strategically-placed hide and vantage points. Regular sights are barn owls, kingfishers and herds of deer—but you can also see grass snakes, badgers, foxes and no end of bird species, some quite rare. On clear winter nights you'll be astonished by the dark skies which provides a fantastic view of stars which cannot be seen in other parts of the UK due to light pollution.
Ostler's Cottage is a great place to relax and a superb central location to explore Dartmoor (15 mins) and the North Devon and North Cornwall coastlines (25 mins).
Don't forget that Ostler's Cottage is part of the same group of barn conversions as Verbena Cottage, The Garden House and Medley's Cottage, so why not come with other friends (total 10 people) so that you can have a barbecue by the lake or go for a row together?
NB: Note there are no 'hidden extras': the price is all-inclusive. However, the 'headline' prices shown above are for winter out-of-season bookings and are higher during summer months.
Note that this cottage is for 2 people sharing a double bed ONLY ( + a cot for a baby if you have one)! The line "Extra guests no charge" is ambiguous but unfortunately, as cottage owners, we cannot change it.

Over the last 15 years we've created our own very quiet and peaceful oasis in deepest, darkest Devon, which is a haven for wildlife and which we'd love to share with you. We have 4 holiday cottages in total to hire and for your additional reassurance, they have all received numerous reviews on Trip Advisor; do search them.
Our cottages have been a labour of love, converted to the highest 'eco' specifications. We generate our own electricity and use a ground source heat pump for the underfloor heating, as well as solar thermal panels for hot water. The walls are highly insulated so that you can be sure of being warm, even in winter. And to cap it off we've installed 'heat-recovery ventilation' to provide fresh air to every room and eliminate condensation.
