GREATROCK FARM

Holiday Cottages
 

ABOUT

Greatrock Farm is a complex of three holiday cottages situated in an ancient woodland valley within Dartmoor National Park. There are plenty of garden spaces and woodland to explore as well as a games barn, croquet lawn and pétanque court to enjoy at leisure. We have a small herd of alpacas and are able to offer Alpaca walks - see more information below.  We are in Hennock village which has a beautiful church and a pub with a spectacular view The Palk Arms.  Enjoy walks straight from Greatrock following the public footpath through ancient forest to a river and beyond to local reservoirs Tottiford, Trenchford and Kennock.

GUEST REVIEWS

Nice meeting Sarah! She made us feel very welcome with a Devon cream tea, fresh flowers and other provisions.  No fuss but everything very well organised. Good bed, good shower, bird songs all over the place... Every evening after intensive walking and visiting Dartmoor region, we were happy to come home.
