Old Sowtontown is a smallholding with three self-catering holiday cottages, ‘The Barn’, ‘The Shippen’ and ‘The Hemphouse’. They are in a rural setting within the National Park on the western edge of Dartmoor .

For very reasonable prices, these cottages offer ideal accommodation for walking, hiking, cycling or riding holidays. Dogs are welcome and stabling is available should you wish to bring your own horse(s). Open moorland is within a ten-minute walk. Tavistock, a historic market town, is 3 miles away, and Peter Tavy, the nearby village, has a 15th Century inn serving good food. The National Cycle Route 27 goes past the gate.

Old Sowtontown is owned and maintained by the Boswell family who live on site.

The Hemphouse (47′ x 15′, 14.3m x 4.6m) has a delightful open-plan living room, kitchen and dining area, fronted with beautiful windows looking out over the valley towards Brentor. There is one single bedroom downstairs, with an en suite toilet and shower room. This room also contains the washing machine and tumble dryer. Upstairs, the landing area is bookended by a double bedroom on one end, and a twin bedroom on the other. There is one upstairs bathroom with sink, toilet and bath.
