The south facing conservatory is a great place to eat a relax breakfast and watching the ducks.
The farmhouse kitchen is well equiped and has two cookers and two fridges for the larger party.
Master bedroom with King sized sleigh bed, plus option of a cot or additional single bed.

“The helpfulness and kind touches made this an excellent and very comfortable stay.”
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is a lovely farmhouse with very comfortable bedrooms and spotless bathrooms. All enquiries were met with friendly and comprehensive replies- Geoff couldn't have been more helpful. There 8 of us in the group and breakfast was kindly supplied for the first morning and a delicious cake was there on our arrival. Such a welcome set us up for the 4 day break. Lovely walks on Dartmoor and a fabulous evening meal at home farm cafe which only opens as a restaurant for 3 nights a week - definitely worth booking - were highlights. Many thanks to Geoff , it was a perfect few days away.

“Spacious and well equipped with super bathrooms with endless hot water!”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The Farmhouse offers excellent and comfortable space for everyone. Four generations of us travelled to the area for a family wedding and we found Dunley Farmhouse suited all of our needs - from toddlers to an elderly wheelchair user. (Even the dog had a ball, safe in the fenced garden). With a downstairs bedroom and wheelchair friendly entrance, the house is ideal for the less mobile.

On arrival we were greeted by the very friendly owner, Geoff and found a delicious freshly baked cake and loaf of bread baked by his wife. The eggs, bacon and sausages provided for our first breakfast were most welcomed, although Sainsburys delivered our food order as arranges.

To be super critical, the position of the pylon and directly overhead humming wires were initially off putting, but we got used to this. Whilst the novelty of free range geese, ducks and guinea fowl maybe appealing to most,, the less than attractive disused stables and "reclaimation" area at the entrance to the property, might be best hidden!
