Devon - Ashburton

Ashburton is a small town on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, adjacent to the A38 Devon Expressway.
It was formerly important as a stannary town (a centre for the administration of tin-mining), and remains the largest town within the National Park, with a population of around 3,500. Ashburton has six pubs within the centre of town, and two restaurants.
The name is recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as Essebretone. During the English Civil War, Ashburton was a temporary refuge for Royalist troops fleeing after their defeat by General Fairfax at nearby Bovey Tracey.
The town was the terminus of the Buckfastleigh, Totnes and South Devon Railway that opened on 1 May 1872. Ashburton railway station closed to passengers in November 1958 although goods traffic on the line continued until 7 September 1962.
Asburton used to be famous for a beverage known as Ashburton Pop, possibly a type of champagne, the recipe of which was lost with the brewer in 1765.

High Oak House is a character, terraced, 300 year old house… It contains a self-catering, bijou, second-floor apartment situated in central Ashburton – a stone’s throw away from cafes, bars, boutiques and a good range of local shops, with Dartmoor on the doorstep…

The accommodation is newly appointed, and represents a fusion of ancient and modern – with exposed beams and polished solid oak kitchen worktops, a roll top bath up on the open-plan mezzanine sleeping platform, and all the conveniences of elegant, comfortable living down below.

The apartment sleeps 4: a double bedroom, with views of the hills and church spire from the window seat, and an en-suite wet room… Upstairs there’s a double bed on the mezzanine platform. The main living space is open plan, with kitchen, diner and living-room over-lapping, enabling you to combine food and socialising in an easy, intimate atmosphere. The 3 windows and roof lights ensure a light-filled space for your relaxation and enjoyment.

Outside and up a flight of steps, a designer-built garden overlooks the valley opposite, and provides a sun-trap in the afternoons for lazy barbecues…

Sophie Conran crockery, Egyptian cotton sheets and complimentary artisan coffee, loose-leaf tea and chocolate truffles complete the indulgent ‘holiday’ mood.
