Haytor Vale is an idyllic hamlet minutes from the open moor and perfectly placed at the base of Haytor Rocks. The surrounding countryside and moors provide some of the most scenic landscapes Dartmoor has to offer, yet the property is extremely accessible, being less than a fifteen-minute drive from the A38 Expressway and M5 beyond whilst mainline train access to London Paddington can be found from Newton Abbot. Bovey Tracey, known as 'the gateway to the moor', offers a wide range of everyday facilities, including library, health centre, garages, shops, galleries, inns and restaurants. Bovey Tracey has a primary school, and the independent day and boarding school, Stover School, is about 4 miles away.


Originally constructed in 1934 for the Haytor Vale Women s Institute the property had been in constant use since that time until 2015 when it was purchased by the current owners and transformed into its current use as a successful holiday let. The property is situated at the base of Haytor Rocks on the south eastern slopes of Dartmoor and is well placed to enjoy the excellent walking and riding opportunities with good access to open moorland and some of the best outdoor recreational pursuits on offer to the area. A combination of this superb location and well-presented accommodation has contributed to the property being operated as a successful holiday. The property offers spacious and light accommodation throughout but retains its original characterful appearance. The property offers a large, open sitting/dining room, kitchen, utility room, two double bedrooms and two shower rooms. Outside there is parking for two vehicles and a pretty moorland garden.

This area provides a practical entrance to the property when returning from outdoor pursuits. Glazed double doors open to the spacious sitting/dining room with vaulted ceiling and pine flooring. This room is bathed in natural light due to the dual aspect windows and doors on either side leading to the rear garden. The kitchen overlooks the front of the property and features a range of floor and wall mounted white gloss units whilst there is space for an electric oven, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
