Fancy trying your hand at a spot of kayaking or horse riding here on Dartmoor? Then this is the place.

Plus a guest sitting room with log burner. Ok, so there are no flat screen TV's in the rooms, but with lots going on outdoors, some great pubs nearby for evening meals and all this fresh air you won't care because in the morning there will be the farm's fresh free range eggs for breakfast. Children are welcome to collect the eggs and feed the chucks.
