Drenched in history and charm Kites Holt, part of Kites Cottage is a 500 year old Grade II listed Medieval Hall House that sits within the centre of the beautiful village of Stockland. A stunning, one bedroomed, beamed thatched cottage with the benefit of its own private entrance into the original hall of the cottage dating back to circa 15th Century.
Kites Holt has space and light whilst keeping a wealth of its original character and some quirky features offering guests something original with a high standard of luxury and comfort included. This archetypal thatched cottage in an unspoilt village setting, is the perfect destination for a comfortable country break. Kites Cottage offers you the best of both the traditional and the contemporary, with original flooring and an open fire, as well as modern comforts such as underfloor heating in the bathroom and a luxurious super king bed. Outside, there’s a fully enclosed southwest facing courtyard garden, with views of the village church and the countryside beyond.
Stockland is a small village that sits nestled within the Blackdown Hills, which were designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1991. You’ll find plenty of country walks through the woodland and countryside right from the doorstep. The village community has recently bought the Kings Arms Pub which is a short stroll from the cottage and should be opening at the start of 2019. Until then, the Tuckers Arms at Dalwood is just three miles away.

"We stayed three nights and I cannot recommend the place highly enough. It had everything we needed for a short stay, the car park was very close and the views were of the rolling Devonish countryside. We were literally less than 5 minutes drive from 2 Supermarkets and the Park & Ride for Dartmouth. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook as well as a small selection of helpful key essentials (tea, coffee, cooking oil, salt/ pepper, washing liquid, etc. As a family we like to explore and stay somewhere different. In this case we'd make an exception."
"Brilliant location, lovely out door space for kids to play, spotless chalet would definitely go again!"
