About this listing

East Quither Farm is a historic farmhouse in the heart of fabulous Devon countryside near Tavistock on the fringe of Dartmoor National Park.
Tavistock is a fascinating town with World Heritage Status. It has an exceptional range of shops, restaurants and pubs. Leisure activities include swimming, riding, kayaking, sailing, fishing, walking, theatre, cinema, National Trust houses, gardens and numerous other places of historical interest. There are great surfing beaches less than an hour away.

The space

East Quither Farm is an ancient Grade 2 listed building with recorded history dating back to the 17th Century. Indeed the then Bishop of Dublin was born here in the 1650s. We are surrounded by wonderful countryside and all the amenities of the Dartmoor National Park.

We have two rooms available. The Garden Room, with amazing views over the valley and the spectacular Blue Room which can have an extra single bed. Both rooms are next to the bathroom and are near the shower room. We often have a third room available if your party needs it. There is even a sofa bed downstairs if required.

Guest access

You will have a large drawing room with TV to relax in and access to our kitchen to make hot/cold drinks or for the simple warming up of meals. You will be able to store perishable food in the family fridge as necessary. Breakfast, with hot croissants, will be laid out in the kitchen with views over the garden. You will be more than welcome to enjoy the garden and all the walks around the house. For your safety, please do not go into the farm buildings ie the barns & log store without permission.

Interaction with guests

We will almost certainly be around and available during your stay if you need tips and ideas of where to go.

We had fantastic days in this cozy and unique house. Richard and Dee prepared great breakfast for us every morning and it was a pleasure to have them nearby for very nice conversations. We laughed a lot and got great advice. The place is very quite and ideal if you like being in nature. Dartmoor national park is very close and within one hour drive there are plenty of scenic places like Eden project, Tintagel, Clovelly etc. Definitely a place and hosts we like to recommend!

The house was not easy to find, especially in the dark and with the diversion in Tavistock. But Richard was very helpfully. The old house of the 16. century is very cosy and really "english ". The breakfast , with the view in the garden and on the birds is fantastic. Richard is very friendly and he have uns many informations and recommendations. We appreciated the stay very much.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am going to adjust our directions on the AirBnB site to say that using a SatNav to find to East Quither Farm really is the preferable way to find us. They take you within 100m of our house - even at night! With more thanks all good wishes to you both.

This is a beautifully aged house in the countryside that has charm oozing out of every corner - the rooms are spacious and very comfortable and location wise, it is within reach of places such as the Eden project. Richard was a very gracious host, very helpful and accommodating of our needs.

Dee & I live in Devon because it has everything we love. Truly amazing countryside, the World Heritage status town of Tavistock close by with its wonderful architecture, indoor Pannier Market, interesting history and happy buzz.

Tavistock has a small theatre/cinema, live music, 2 swimming pools, a great selection of pubs and eateries as well as a good selection of Independent shops.

Wild Dartmoor is on our doorstep with many guided walks and interesting places to visit, the sea and surf less than an hours drive away and so many opportunities for walking, birding, kyacking, sailing, horse riding close by etc.

The city of Plymouth is just 2O miles away and north Cornwall just 15 minutes drive. Then there is peace here at Quither - green hills, rolling countryside, our own woodland, a view to the moor, no cars pass our door except the postman (and our visitors of course), a garden terrace to eat breakfast in the sunshine or choose to get cosy in our medieval drawing room. The house oozes character and charm with its log burners and mullioned windows. One of the Bishops of Belfast was born here and the house has links to the nearby Buckland Abbey.

My partner Dee and I have been hosting and using Airbnb for the past 2 years, we have enjoyed meeting people from many different countries and have found it a rewarding experience. Airbnb suites our style of travel, we like to be a part of where we stay.

We have some maps of the area and ideas for interesting trips out and about and hope to meet you here one day.
Kind Regards
Richard and Dee
