Peacock Blue | Luxury Self-Catering | Holne, Ashburton, Dartmoor

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. 

Luxury self-catering property in South Devon


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 homestay 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. 

For Relaxation

Off the beaten track yet within easy reach of local pubs, 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 wildlife roam. 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.
