The lounge/diner, which occupies one half of the circular building, has window seats running all around the edge, allowing guests to enjoy views across the farm and the surrounding countryside, and there is also a small dining table, as well as comfortable sofa seating, and a TV, DVD, and hi-fi. The separate kitchen is equipped with everything that guests will need, including an electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washing machine.

Great place to explore from and return too. Nice views from the windows when you wake to the early morning sunshine right through until you close the curtains in the dusky evenings. Spacious and very comfortable.

We've been on many holidays with Holiday Cottages over the years and this is, without a doubt, our favourite. Terry and Carolyn are incredibly welcoming, and the Upper Roundhouse is comfortable with spectacular views of Dartmoor. We love it so much it's the reason we've stayed here every year for the past six years!
