Shuttaford Farm is situated just under a mile from the village of Holne, above the River Dart Valley, on the south side of the Dartmoor National Park and about four miles to the west of Ashburton. The attractive village of Holne consists essentially of period houses and cottages, and possesses a church, pub and village hall, whilst the popular moorland town of Ashburton provides a full range of local amenities including shops and restaurants. Close by is the stunningly beautiful River Dart Valley which runs down from the moor through steeply wooded valleys, and on to the South Hams area of South Devon, past Totnes, to the sea at Dartmouth. Dartmoor is renowned for spectacular scenery with its granite tors, heather clad moorland and wooded valleys, bisected by rushing streams and rivers, and there are many opportunities locally for walking, riding and fishing. Also within easy reach is the beautiful South Devon coast with its estuaries, beaches and excellent sailing facilities. There is a popular state school in Ashburton and private schools at Stover, Tavistock and a selection in the university and cathedral city of Exeter.


There is easy access via the Dart Valley road to Ashburton on to the A38 dual carriageway, which leads west to Plymouth, from where there are ferries to the Continent, and east to Exeter, where there is access on to the M5 motorway, railway stations with mainline connections to London (Paddington and Waterloo), and an international airport.
