A sympathetically converted 19th century barn nestled on the edge of Dartmoor. Set in 11 acres of grounds with chicken, ducks and sheep you can enjoy a truly relaxing rural retreat in Devon.

This sympathetically converted and tastefully furnished 19th century barn is ideally positioned on the outskirts of Dartmoor National Park (3 miles) and is an ideal romantic getaway for two. Set in 11 acres of grounds with chickens, ducks and sheep, this rural retreat is great for exploring the glorious Devon countryside, and is a perfect base for keen walkers, cyclists, nature-lovers and birdwatchers. The northern coast is within easy reach, and you can also explore the spectacular Tamar Valley (10 miles) and the dramatic Bodmin Moor (17 miles).

This lovely, restful and stylish property has been imaginatively converted and is reverse-level, with the front door leading into the first-floor’s spacious, light and comfortable open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Featuring exposed beams and plenty of comfortable seating, this is a fantastic space to snuggle up in at the end of a fabulous day. Heading downstairs, you will find the cosy double bedroom and shower room. There’s also a pretty enclosed garden with a lawn and garden furniture allowing you to unwind, relax and dine alfresco.

You’ll be in an ideal spot for exploration of Dartmoor, Bodmin and the Tamar Valley, and for discovering many other wonderful attractions, including Lydford Gorge (6 miles), the Launceston Steam Railway (10 miles) and Roadford Lake (10 miles). Nearby towns include Tavistock (6 miles) and Okehampton (16 miles), home of the ruins of Okehampton Castle. Devon’s southern coast is within easy reach, with Plymouth just 20 miles away, or you could head to the Cornish coast in the north, with popular resorts including Boscastle and Bude (both 27 miles).

We were a little diappointed to find the cottage wasnt as advertised, we were led to believe that it was a cottage standing on its own with lovely views and that there were plenty of walks around. It was squashed round the back of the owners house and you had to drive everywhere.

If you're looking for a peaceful break it's the place to be and a good place to us as a base.

This is a lovely quiet location but with good access to a market town and supermarkets. The owners were very friendly and were very quick to repair a washbasin plug that we had a problem with.

A lovely cottage. A short drive to Tavistock which is a delightful place to visit. Tavistock has several large stores for shopping. It was a lovely surprise to find the bed had an electric under blanket. We had a great time.

Great little cottage in a lovely quiet location for a peaceful holiday away from crowds and traffic. We really enjoyed exploring Dartmoor Forest and visited Looe, Polperro, Hope Cove and Bigbury on Sea which were about an hour's drive. Remember to buy some milk on the way as there are no shops close by and the nearest town is Tavistock. There is noRead more phone signal at the cottage and only occasional wi-fi. Hide
