Welcome to DartmoorHolidays.co.uk, the website of Old Sowtontown. We are a smallholding with three self-catering holiday cottages, ‘The Barn’, ‘The Shippen’ and ‘The Hemphouse’. We are in a rural setting within the National Park on the western edge of Dartmoor .
For very reasonable prices, these cottages offer ideal accommodation for walking, hiking, cycling or riding holidays. Dogs are welcome and stabling is available should you wish to bring your own horse(s). Open moorland is within a ten-minute walk. Tavistock, a historic market town, is 3 miles away, and Peter Tavy, the nearby village, has a 15th Century inn serving good food. The National Cycle Route 27 goes past our gate.
The Barn and the Hemphouse are larger, and suitable for up to 6 and 5 people, respectively, while the Shippen suits 2-4. Check out each cottage’s individual page by clicking on the links above for details and pictures. If you have any queries, or would like to book a holiday, then simply click on the ‘Bookings & Contact Info’ link.
Old Sowtontown is owned and maintained by the Boswell family who live on site.
