Property code: ROUND

Apartment occupying the first floor of an unusual roundhouse barn, located on a 160-acre arable farm, just three miles from the Devonshire market town of Tavistock, and a short drive from Dartmoor.

This unusual holiday cottage located just 2 miles from the ancient stannary of Tavistock is the perfect romantic hideaway. Within a complex of three properties and surrounded by 160 acres of farmland, this charming roundhouse is true to its name. A delightful circular roof showcasing exposed beams and original rounded stone walls dominates, giving guests an authentic Devon experience.

Reached by external steps, this first-floor gem has a quirky charm. The traditionally-styled lounge and dining area features wooden window seats where you can sit and gaze out at lovely countryside views. Kick back on the raised patio area and enjoy the tranquillity of the farm as the worries of day-to-day life slip away or perhaps head over to the larger shared gardens where you can meet the neighbours.

Perhaps you want a quiet getaway, and if so, the rural location of the owner’s farm will be ideal. If you want to explore the area, however, there’s lots to do in and around Tavistock. You’re on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and just 3 miles from the glorious Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while Bodmin Moor, 25 miles away, will provide some fun, hunting down the mythical beast. Or head into historic Tavistock and browse the shops and restaurants built from the local stone and the famous pannier market, bursting with fascinating local produce and crafts.

We love the Upper Roundhouse, this is our second visit. The location, views are beautiful. Everything you need is in the apartment. The owners are there if needed and are happy to answer questions. This apartment is also ideal if you have family or friends as there is another apartment downstairs. Highly recommend both for a visit.

We had a most enjoyable week, and found that the accomadation had everything we needed for a short stay. Views were a delight, and if you want some peace and quiet this is a perfect place to stay.

The Upper Roundhouse was ideally situated with lovely views towards the Moors and in a quiet location. We had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed the quirkiness of the lounge in particular. There are plenty of places to visit locally - would recommend this property .
