Cresson Hayes is a Grade II* listed sixteenth century house with a rambling garden in a hamlet in the Dartmoor National Park in South Devon.
Offering accommodation for up to eight people, the house is at the south end of a range of three dwellings, and has views across fields and moor. It is full of historical interest and original features, with carved and painted beams, mullioned windows, granite fireplaces, a stone spiral staircase, recessed window seats, and many other interesting nooks and crannies to explore. Due to the staircase, the house is not really suitable for toddlers.
Comfortably but not luxuriously furnished, it is a much loved family house with a very welcoming atmosphere, showing some signs of wear and tear (not everything matches!), filled with paintings, antiques, curious books, maps and games. With the south moor and winding Dart valley on its doorstep, it is an ideal base for walkers and there is also a wide range of activities for children in the area. The south Devon coast is within an hour’s drive.
fabulous family home

This is the perfect house to stay in on Dartmoor. Steeped in history and in a superb location but still close to Ashburton and the A38 for easy access. The description is accurate, all the rooms are very spacious and the property is very well equipped with tea towels, washing up liquid, plenty of crockery and utensils for cooking proper meals. The oven is straight forward to use. The property was clean, and is clearly well looked after. Communication from the owners was excellent with detailed instructions including step by step guidance for finding the house. We were also greeted on arrival by the owners representative and given a tour of the property and further information about the heating and oven operation. I would certainly recommend the property to family/friends and would love to stay here again myself for another holiday. The nearby pub (accessed via footpath through fields) served good food. All in all I cannot praise this property enough.
