Beautiful old farm house set in a peaceful location. Close to Okehampton for shopping but not too close. Beds were very comfortable and kitchen well equipped. Loved the open fire in the lounge. If you want to get away from it all then this is the place to go.

We spent Christmas there with our extended family, and the space, facilities, kitchen and all fittings were ideal. We would like to return in the summer to explore around.

We had a fantastic week at Fowley House which was in the perfect spot and had everything we needed for a great holiday with our 2 children and dog. We arrived to home made cupcakes and the owner was on hand should we have needed anything but we were left to enjoy ourselves and the tranquil setting. We will definitely be returning.
