The property is ideally located for exploring Dartmoor National Park and the Devon coast, including the English Riviera at Torbay and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. For those wanting to venture further afield, there are fast road links to the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the historic naval city of Plymouth. Other local attractions include a number of National Trust properties and Powderham Castle. Look out for many species of wildlife that the rewilding of the land is attracting

This compact yet perfectly-appointed area boasts a gorgeous little breakfast bar/dining area, providing all the essentials including a combi microwave oven, electric hob and a fridge with an ice compartment. From here the hall leads to the pretty bedroom with a double bed and lovely antique furniture, and then a fabulous contemporary yet in-keeping shower room with shower and WC. Finally, there is the sitting area, a cosy space with a comfortable sofa and chair, Smart TV and DAB/CD player with Bluetooth.

We enjoyed staying at the Three Hares Carriage very much. It's not big but living in an historical train carriage was amazing. There is easy parking (I refuse to stay anywhere this is not the case) and superb views across the Devon countryside including 2 private fields that we had access to with a picnic spot. The owners were around if we needed tRead morehem but not intrusive. The building is very warm so would be good all year. Hide
