This renovated barn is situated in beautiful farmland and is a short distance from Dartmoor National Park. The market town of Tavistock is also a short drive away and well worth visiting.

Located on a 300-acre cattle and sheep farm, this detached granite barn is the ideal country getaway. Walk the farm trail and enjoy the stunning views from every direction or visit the country pub which is only ten minutes away. Take a ten-minute drive to Dartmoor National Park to see the rugged landscapes, traditional villages, remote tors and flowing rivers. 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.

Retaining plenty of original features, this former barn has been lovingly decorated and furnished to create a hugely comfortable home from home. 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. There is one king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room and WC.

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.

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and would highly recommend to couples who need a romantic hideaway in a cosy cottage amongst the rolling hills. Our host was extremely welcoming and gave us complete privacy for the 4 nights. (The fantastic farm dogs bounded over occasionally to say hello ). p.s. We accidentally left a bag of shopping and wineRead mores behind but I'm sure our hosts can make use of it :) We hope to return next year. Hide

Very quiet location great for relaxing and forgetting your troubles. Cosy setting with log burner for a warm and toasty winter evening. Great location close to Dartmoor and Tamar valley with many attractions. Will definitely be back again soon.

Both me and my wife had a great stay here and found the cottage very comfortable and homely. Warm welcome from the host and very approachable if need be. Having the use of a wood burner made it warm and cosy. Well equipped kitchen if you need it but we found many local restaurants and pubs catered for our needs. Great location and beautiful sceneryRead more. Highly recommend this for peace and quite and relaxation. Hide

We had a lovely holiday here. The cottage is very clean and is well equipped with items in the kitchen and bathroom. It is situated in an area where there is plenty of privacy but is also only a short drive into Tavistock. The owners were very welcoming and helpful on arrival. We hope to come back again the next time we are visiting family in DevonRead more :) Hide

the cottage has scenic views of fields, it is quiet, comfortable and relaxing as well as being very central for visiting lots of interesting sights all within a 20 miles radius

Reviewed by Luke, 17th September 2017

We had an amazing holiday. The bungalow is set in beautiful farmland but set far enough away that you have plenty of privacy. The scenery is breathtaking and you are only 20 minutes drive from Tavistock or Dartmoor moors.
