                              Holwell Farm is located in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park; one of England's last true wildernesses. Surrounded by towering granite 'tors' and pre-historic boundary walls, the farm is literally littered with signs of ancient life; stone circles, medieval settlements and ancient green lanes that even pre-date the cart ! Explore the wonderful scenery on foot or on horseback.

                              The nearest village is the famous Widecombe in the Moor where the well-known Fair is held every September; immortalized by Uncle Tom Cobbley and his old grey mare.

                              Dartmoor offers a superbly diverse landscape from the torrenting River Dart which carves its way from the high moor to Dartmouth, lush wooded valleys and open moorland where all the livestock; ponies, cattle and sheep roam free.

                              The sandy beaches of South Devon are within half an hour's drive and nearby attractions include The Steam Railway & Otter Farm, Pennywell Farm, Miniature Pony Centre, Plymouth Aquarium and Living Coasts, Torquay.
