The historic town of Tavistock is two miles away from the farm and visitors can spend a day exploring the pannier market, shops, cafés, cinema and restaurants. Further afield, the Eden Project is an hour’s drive away and is a great day out. There are also several National Trust properties nearby including Cotehele House, Buckland Abbey and Lydford Gorge.

When entering the exposed stone-wall barn, there is an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a feature granite fireplace and wood-burner (first basket of logs provided) to keep guests warm. The exposed stone-walls keep the barn cool in warmer weather. The lounge area is furnished with a large sofa and is equipped with a TV and for entertainment. Passing the dining area, featuring a table and chairs perfect for any occasion, the modern kitchen is fitted out with a hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer.

Outside the property, a garden is provided for guests to use, enjoying great views out over the surrounding countryside. There is also a patio, garden furniture seating and a BBQ; ideal for lazy summer evenings out in the open. Parking is available for two cars next to the barn.

This is a lovely property in a quiet location. We didnt really price that we were in the middle of a farm its so tranquil. Our holiday was one of the most relaxing we have had in a long time. The proximity to Tavistock and Dartmoor was a bonus.

This property was exactly as advertised. The location is great, the internal and external facilities well above expectations. The Edwards family are good hosts, helpful and dealt with minor issues effectively. The fact that this is a working farm just adds to the local colour. We were very fascinated by sheep picking . We hope to return in the futuRead morere. Hide
