Chinkwell Tor is a lovely granite and stone built Holiday Use Only barn conversion in an utterly stunning location in Dartmoor National Park between the famous land marks of Haytor and Widecombe in the Moor. One of only six cottages that have been superbly restored from a collection of period granite barns built originally as a Model Farm in the 1900's.

Located in the upper yard level and named after a local Tor, Chinkwell Tor is enclosed by a granite wall and has a sheltered lawned garden right outside the front door. This south east facing property is full of character throughout with an abundance of exposed stone walls, granite mullion windows, a wealth of exposed beams, and also practical slate and oak flooring.

It is beautifully presented throughout and tastefully restored with holidays in mind while still retaining many of the original features. On entering there is a large inner hall - ideal for lots of muddy boots, coats and soggy dogs, that opens up into a corridor leading to two ground floor bedrooms, the family bathroom and a large open plan kitchen/living/dining room.

The living area with its magnificent exposed beams has a wood burner at its heart to snuggle up to after those rambling moorland walks and for those cosy winter evenings.
