Property code: ROUND

Apartment occupying the first floor of an unusual roundhouse barn, located on a 160-acre arable farm, just three miles from the Devonshire market town of Tavistock, and a short drive from Dartmoor.

This unusual holiday cottage located just 2 miles from the ancient stannary of Tavistock is the perfect romantic hideaway. Within a complex of three properties and surrounded by 160 acres of farmland, this charming roundhouse is true to its name. A delightful circular roof showcasing exposed beams and original rounded stone walls dominates, giving guests an authentic Devon experience.

Reached by external steps, this first-floor gem has a quirky charm. The traditionally-styled lounge and dining area features wooden window seats where you can sit and gaze out at lovely countryside views. Kick back on the raised patio area and enjoy the tranquillity of the farm as the worries of day-to-day life slip away or perhaps head over to the larger shared gardens where you can meet the neighbours.

Perhaps you want a quiet getaway, and if so, the rural location of the owner’s farm will be ideal. If you want to explore the area, however, there’s lots to do in and around Tavistock. You’re on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and just 3 miles from the glorious Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while Bodmin Moor, 25 miles away, will provide some fun, hunting down the mythical beast. Or head into historic Tavistock and browse the shops and restaurants built from the local stone and the famous pannier market, bursting with fascinating local produce and crafts.

Third time at Ottery Farm, but first time in Upper Roundhouse, really enjoyed our stay. Super views from windows and outside seating area across Dartmoor. Very cosy and warm flat.

Exceeded all expectations, what a super spot to relax and get away from it all. We hope to go again and do some more exploring of the area, so many places to visit in a radius of 25 miles.

Great place to explore from and return too. Nice views from the windows when you wake to the early morning sunshine right through until you close the curtains in the dusky evenings. Spacious and very comfortable.

We've been on many holidays with Holiday Cottages over the years and this is, without a doubt, our favourite. Terry and Carolyn are incredibly welcoming, and the Upper Roundhouse is comfortable with spectacular views of Dartmoor. We love it so much it's the reason we've stayed here every year for the past six years!
