The Old Stable is a recently converted cottage in the grounds of the owners' property at The Old Vicarage.

The cottage offers two apartments; one ground floor and one first floor. There is an internal staircase, which can be locked from both apartments, but can be used if both apartments are booked together.

Children over the age of 10 years are welcome in the apartments.

The Greenhouse Spa offers a cedar hot tub and sauna for 2 people and the services of a beautician. This is a shared facility for all guests, with private times for each apartment.

The Hayloft
This first floor apartment is accessed via an outside metal staircase, so is not suitable for guests who have difficulty with steps or young children. It is a lovely, bright and airy open plan apartment, with a separate shower and small kitchen and has views over the open countryside to the north.

As you enter the apartment the sleeping area is on your left offering a six foot double bed or twin beds, whichever you prefer. As you walk through the apartment there is a sitting area, with Freeview TV and a dining area with seating for four. There is a sofa and a comfortable bean bag to relax in. At the far end there is a small separate kitchenette, with washing machine/dryer, a four ring electric hob and electric oven. Next to the kitchen is a shower room and toilet.

Free WiFi.

No pets allowed in the apartment.

The Shippon
This ground floor apartment is accessed through double doors and has two steps up to the door. There is a separate bedroom offering a double bed and an open plan living area, with a well equipped kitchen; a dishwasher, microwave and an electric four ring hob and oven.

The dining area seats four and the living area has a sofa bed, which can accommodate one adult or two small children. A TV with Freeview completes the open plan area. A separate shower room, toilet and utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer completes the apartment.

Free WiFi.

No pets allowed in the apartment.

Both apartments are offered on a self catered basis or you can choose to stay on a bed and breakfast basis. We will bring your breakfast hamper over to your apartment so you can relax and enjoy breakfast at your leisure the following morning. Self catering or bed and breakfast, we aim to be as flexible as possible.
We leave tea, coffee, sugar and hot chocolate to welcome your arrival along with some milk in the fridge and some homemade goodies. There are also essential herbs, spices and oil.
Bed linen and towels are included.

Dowland is a small hamlet set in beautiful, unspoilt Devon countryside, looking south towards the northern end of Dartmoor; a perfect venue for a relaxing break or for exploring nearby villages. The apartments are situated on the Tarka Trail, a 180 mile long trail that splits into 2 loops and we are situated on the South Loop.

Although the setting is rural and quiet we can offer some wonderful places to eat and visit. Dolton, a mile away to the north, has a small supermarket and post office, butchers and two good pubs. A mile to the south you can find The Duke of York in Iddesleigh, home to Michael Morpurgo's War Horse Valley.

Mid Devon is a quiet, peaceful and very unspoilt part of the country, where you can wander along the narrow Devon lanes and glimpse rural views through gateways. An area not yet commercialised or teeming with visitors and traffic, a reminder of ages past and a slower, less stressful, way of life.
