The Yard, an Open-Plan Studio Apartment at Borough Farm

The Yard is our newly renovated open-plan studio apartment. Located on the ground floor, this light and airy space features rustic stone walls, exposed beams, skylight windows and a calming natural colour palette to echo its surroundings. Large glazed doors provide breathtaking sunrise views over Dartmoor National Park, and our free-standing French bateau bath will sooth your muscles after a long day of hiking, swimming, or simply escaping the hustle and bustle. Stunning views from our ultra-comfy king-sized oak bed mean that you don’t even need to get out of bed to take in the scenery! We offer dog-friendly holidays and welcome your well-behaved dog to The Yard.

About The Yard

The Yard is complete with a separate loo and sink, as well as a kitchenette with all you need to prepare a lovely meal with some local produce from the nearby farm shop. The space has a dining area and a comfy sofa, and is dog-friendly. A travel cot and high chair can be provided on request, making this the perfect little retreat for couples, pup-parents or young families.

Situated around an old, partially enclosed courtyard, this space gives access to outdoor seating and a BBQ. It also serves as a sun trap in the summer months!

Once a week, we have a pizza night with delicious pizzas cooked in the log-fired pizza oven in the courtyard.

Next door to The Yard you will find the Shower Barn: our separate shared shower, laundry facilities and changing table, along with a large fridge freezer, all of which can be used by guests in our other rooms and yurts.

Guests often book The Yard alongside our other barn The Granary and our yurts as an additional option to accommodate their extended family and friends.

Julia looks forward to welcoming you!
