Station Yard Studios is lovely for people looking to relax, explore Dartmoor or enjoy the slower pace of the Devon country. We are close to the coast, cosy village pubs, hidden oasis garden centres or the marvellous Riverford Field Kitchen. By appointment we can offer yoga, holistic massage, shiatsu, Dr. Hauschka Facials or instruction in Macrobiotic cooking with our in-house team "your hosts", who just happen to have these skills. We have three rooms on offer: the BRUNEL, UMBER & GARDEN rooms.

The space

Our home has three Air BnB rooms, which occasionally means that the bathroom, although it is for the sole use of our guests, it may be shared by others if more than one room is booked at the same time. We have our living and work space in a building that is part of a railway complex designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Quite wonderful in terms of local history. We also have an old umber kiln on site that keeps us intrigued with possible modern day uses! Apparently raw minerals mined locally were transported here by train to be fired before being turned into the paint pigment - 'burnt umber'. Two of our rooms are so named because of the history of the building: Brunel & Umber, the third, our Garden room due to the aspect onto the green hills beyond Ashburton.

Guest access

Access to our yoga studio & therapy room on request for bespoke classes and holistic massage or Dr. Hauschka Facials. Access to the reading room and back patio as and when guests fancy. Access to our kitchen with prior request on a reasonable basis as this is a working kitchen for my co-host Bini, she is a fantastic macrobiotic (vegan) Chef and can provide breakfasts, lunch, dinner or cakes!! There is a private guest entry both at the front and back of the property and plenty of free private parking. We offer our washing machine for guest use at £7.50 per load and provide eco friendly washing powder and fabric softener.

Interaction with guests

We plan to be available as and when needed, however we will happily leave people to privately enjoy the place. Myself my co-host Bini live comfortably in the home, there is more than enough space for everyone. We will of course be on hand to provide meals on request and answer any queries as they arise.

Other things to note

We prefer a shoe free home so would be very happy for people booking a stay to bring along house shoes, indoor flip-flops or big cosy socks to keep feet warm.

The place was great, the people were great. We had a great time at Armanda's place. And we're very happy to spend time with her and her friend.

Lovely rooms close to Dartmore! We had great two nights in this very cosy (fireplace in living room) accomodation, which was very well appointed. The rooms and especially the kitchen, which can be used, were really spacious. A spezial Thanks goes to Bini, who provided us with helpful information and great vegetarian breakfast. Definitely recommended!
