Property code: HIGHM

First floor studio apartment, located within the boundaries of Dartmoor National Park, with access to fantastic walks directly from the front door, just three miles from the town of Tavistock.

This delightful first floor apartment in a stunning barn conversion makes an ideal base for those wanting to explore the rugged, rural landscape of Dartmoor National Park and beyond. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, it’s easy to immerse yourself in the tranquillity and adopt the slower pace of life that you’d expect in the Devon countryside. With lots of scenic walks from your doorstep, you’ll never get bored, but historic, market town, Tavistock, is only 4 miles away with a range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

One of two apartments in this conversion, this property is situated on the first floor and accessed via an external flight of stairs. Inside, the tastefully decorated open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner provides plenty of usable space for two guests. The contemporary style used throughout creates a light and airy feel, making it the perfect environment for relaxing. The double bedroom is once again contemporary and spacious, with its neutral tones making it feel restful. Outside the property, there is a small, private patio with garden furniture, which is a great place to sit and soak up the fresh country air. There is also a large, shared garden with BBQ.

Dartmoor is suited to those who enjoy exploring by foot, with places like Lydford Gorge (9 miles) providing particularly picturesque walks. There are also opportunities for those who enjoy cycling, with the Devon Cycle Network passing within one mile of the property. For those interested in history, the National Trust’s Castle Drogo, a 1920s Art Deco castle, is worth the drive (27 miles) with stunning gardens and grounds to explore. There are lots of other quaint towns and villages to explore within the National Park.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely 1st floor apartment in a well converted barn with excellent views. Really well equipped kitchen, spacious living area and comfy sofa and bed. Little seating and cooking area with BBQ outside by the car parking space. We were able to take both dogs which was ideal. Would book again.

We had a lovely break in Devon, which was helped by the weather. The accomodation allowed our dog which was great and it was clean and had everything we needed. The owner was also friendly.

Stayed here for the Christmas week, 2019. A lovely welcome when we arrived - Christmas tree up, box of chocs and a bottle of bubbly in the fridge! The accommodation was exactly how it was shown in the photographs. Lovely and clean and very cosy during the cold winter evenings in the middle of Dartmoor!

Stunning cottage in a lovely location. Our host was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, places to visit are in abundance and reasonably priced. Good idea to be a National Trust or English Heritage member to save cash big time. We would happily stay again .

This was our third visit to "The Barn" and we found it just as comfortable and well equipped as ever. Jo is the perfect host - around to help, but leaving guests in peace otherwise.
