This is a very clever conversion of a tiny barn. The conversion has been extremely well designed to make use of every inch of space. It is very cosy for 2 people. The location is great for the moor.

Reviewed by Paul 22nd June 2019

The Cider Barn is perfectly located to explore the western side of Dartmoor. The accommodation comfortably sleeps 2 people and has everything you would need for your holiday. Plenty of hot-water on demand, and very efficient heating (if you need it). The up-side-down arrangement that has the kitchen/living area above the bedroom and bathroom (showeRead morer) is quirky, but works really well. The kitchen has a full set of appliances and utensils, for all your cooking needs. An enjoyable stay. Hide
