Hilly Field Barn is a delightful converted 200 yr old barn set in peaceful rolling farmland with its own gated entrance and garden. It was converted to a high standard in 2004 and updates and maintenance is carried out on an annual basis. It is very close to the western edge of the moor and one hill away from the River Tamar with all that that has to offer. The film industry quite often use Darttmoor and we are not far from where parts of War Horse was filmed, amongst others.  

Hilly Field Barn welcomes well behaved dogs at a small extra cost of £20/week.  The garden is totally enclosed and is a good size. There are several short (20mins), walks and then up on to the moor for longer ones.

The accommodation is all at ground level and has metre wide doorways; It consists of a double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and an open plan sitting/dining/kitchen. There is a separate 'box' room which houses the central heating boiler and coats, boots etc.

The kitchen is well equipped with cupboards and worktops; there is an 4 ring gas stove with separate oven and grill; a microwave cooker, fridge with freezer section and a washing machine. There is plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots, pans etc.

The sitting area is bright and spacious with 2 sofas, coffee table, bookshelves and colour TV with integral CD/DVD player. A good sized table affords comfortable dining area.

There is a WIFI connection in the cottage, althought the speed is not good enough to watch films, but this a problem that affects several parts of the country.  Should it be necessary, we are very happy for guests to use our line.  It is blissfully quiet with the murmur of the stream/brook at the bottom of the hill which flows into the river Tavy. There are stunning views out over the valley to the village of Buckland Monachorum. which has a very good pub and restaurant which is well worth a visit..
