We moved to Ashton Court in August 2014 with our two daughters and feel very much at home in our house and in the Holne village. Our daughters love to play in the garden and bicycle over the quiet small lanes. Samantha is Dutch, and lives in England for over ten years. Alex is from London and both we enjoy very much the country live in Devon. From our home and garden we enjoy the Moor views every day in all kinds of weather and enjoy family walks over the Moor and having lunch in one of the cosy Moor pubs/ restaurants. We very much like being part of the Holne village and it gives us a real community feeling. Our daughters love to play in the playpark down the lane or cycle to the village shop to get some groceries. Also kite flying in the summer is a great event. We very much welcome dogs at the Walkers Retreat. One dog will be free of charge and we charge a small fee if you like to bring two dogs. We are happy to provide information over the area and will do their utmost to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any questions.
The Community Village shop/ Tearoom is excellent for late breakfast, lunch, tea and cakes. The shop is well stocked up with a range of mainly local products. The nearest pub will be the Trademans Arms pub in Scoriton, which is only a short 5 min. drive away and is perfect for easy dinner or drinks. Also the lovely newly opened pub The Forest Inn in Hexworthy is 10 minutes away located on the Moor. There are many other excellent pubs/ restaurants in the area, all about 10 to 20 minutes drive away. Dartmoor is on our doorstep and easy accessible by car (5 minutes) or walks can be made from the property. Walks can be made from the property. We provide a booklet with several walks from Holne. The ancient Hembury Woods is 10 minutes away and offers beautiful walks along the River Dart. Also a few excellent beaches are only 40 minutes drive away. The lovely student town of Exeter with its beautiful historic Cathedral is also 40 minutes away. There is so much to do around Holne and the South Hams, that it's impossible to list them all here. We provide many leaflets of things to do in the area. Please do let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to welcome you.
