Higher Rowes Farm

Located in Mary Tavy
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Bedrooms: 3
  • Bathrooms: 3
  • Pet Friendly: 2


This welcoming mid-terrace cottage, within the private grounds of the owner’s home, has 3 bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms and is perfect for either a family or friends wishing to holiday together but retain some privacy.

The spacious open plan lounge dining room with its large stone fireplace with a woodburning stove is perfect for relaxing in after a busy day out exploring Dartmoor.  When the sun is shining, head to the top of the lovely lawned garden to enjoy the stunning moorland views from its built-in alfresco dining area – the ideal spot for that morning coffee or sundowner.

Higher Rowes Cottage is situated in the hamlet of Horndon yet just one mile from the village of Mary Tavy with pub and post office and stores.

Tavistock, just 5 miles from the cottage, is one of the five Stannary towns of Dartmoor and offers plenty of amenities including cafes, shops, pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. 

There are also plenty of beauty spots nearby, including the Lydford Gorge, Burrator Reservoir and the historic Buckland Abbey.   Horse Riding is also available at the highly regarded nearby Cholwell Riding Stables which is either a 9-minute drive away or a 30-minute direct off-road walk across the beautiful moor. 

Beyond Dartmoor, day trips to beaches in Cornwall and Devon offer a great alternative for a day-out.
