In the heart of Dartmoor National Park lies a sublime self-catering abode named Peacock Blue; the haute design and stylish interiors of which wouldn't look out of place in the trendier purlieus of London or Berlin. The compelling drama of Dartmoor's wild landscape that surrounds will inspire awe in all those fortunate enough to enjoy a stay in this most impressive luxury home stay not far from Ashburton.
The iridescent plumage of this unique property's namesake was the influence for much of the striking interiorscape and chosen colourway, whilst subtle use of designed-focused fittings such as Dornbracht and Vola lend this unique home a boutique feel. The beauty of natural stone walls, slate floors and original chunky beams is celebrated throughout which, when juxtaposed with contemporary flourishes such as gilt metro splashbacks and zingy pops of colour, brings about a unique and vibrant home stay which design aficionados will lust over.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The king-size bedroom at Peacock Blue has a standalone clawfoot tub in the corner, as well as a stylish en suite wet room to rival those found in the high end glossies. The sophisticated vibe and luxury linens promise a blissful uninterrupted night's sleep until morn.
Streams tumble over moss-smothered boulders in woods of twisted trees here in the middle of Dartmoor National Park. This luxury self-catering property is a former farmstead within a 40 acre farm with a sprinkling of other properties nearby. The hamlet of Holne is close to the market towns of Buckfastleigh and Ashburton, where traditional inns and trendy eateries jostle for your attention over the breath-taking natural environs on the doorstep.
Off the beaten track yet just a mile from the nearest pub, Peacock Blue is a grown up retreat for couples looking for a luxury romantic getaway with a difference. Throw open the double doors and enjoy afternoon martinis sat atop sapphire-hued velveteen chairs watching (former resident) 'Peeky' the peacock as he struts his stuff around the courtyard. The ponies which graze at the roadside, the swathes of rich purple heather and the imposing granite tors all offer an authentic moorland experience to relish and explore whilst staying at Peacock Blue.
There is parking for two cars. This luxury property is fully equipped with induction hob, electric oven, dishwasher, washer dryer and air source heat pump underfloor heating.

FOOD AND DRINK
The stylish open plan kitchen and dining area is fully-equipped with all the latest mod cons and gadgetry to ensure that whipping up a romantic dinner for two is always a pleasure and never a chore.
If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
The characterful friendly pubs around the area serve hearty home-cooked food and a good selection of local ales. The fine food and wine of Rock Inn is just a five minute drive, whilst Riverford Field Kitchen in nearby Buckfastleigh offers a unique dining experience where you share your table with fellow diners for a feast of the freshest seasonal produce from their fields. For a Sunday roast to write home about, try Gidleigh Park- AMAZING.
