One of two properties situated 1 mile from the village of Yelverton on the fringes of Dartmoor National Park. Offering some of the most popular walking and cycling tracks and paths virtually from your doorstep.


One of two holiday cottages on-site, this property offers a picturesque getaway surrounded by beautiful countryside, giving you the opportunity to forget about your worries and immerse yourself in the magic of Dartmoor National Park. With exposed beams and a comfortable interior, this property gives you a welcoming feeling as soon as you walk through the door, having returned from an exciting day out. End your day with a long soak in the corner bath to recharge, ready for the adventures tomorrow might bring.

This reverse-level has an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a warm rustic ambience, perfect for cosy family meals, and a great space to relax and feel at home; whether that’s watching a DVD together or just comfortably sitting back with a pot of tea and a board game. Downstairs, the compact twin and cheerful double bedroom both have a restful atmosphere, with exposed beams and comfortable furnishings. The bathroom has a light and clean feel to it, featuring an indulgent corner bath with a shower over the top. Why not take a picnic into the shared gardens for a tranquil afternoon admiring glorious views in the sunshine?

Perched on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, there are endless opportunities to follow popular walking tracks and discover the wild and wonderful beauty of the national park and its tors. Being just 1 mile from the village of Yelverton and its charming pub, all the amenities you’ll need aren’t far away. Nor is the National Trust property Buckland Abbey, just 2 miles away, a great place to learn about some interesting local history. Take a day trip to nearby Tavistock or to the city of Plymouth, where you can visit the National Marine Aquarium 12 miles to the south.

The cottage was warm and welcoming, and had everything we needed for our stay, sadly shortened by a day because of an imminent storm. We went to Yelverton to do some cycling along the Drake's Way and Granite Way in February. Intake Barn was only half a mile from from the Drake's Way along a quiet road so suited us perfectly.

A great place and location to springboard into Devon and Cornwall. Not too far from Plymouth and proximity to Dartmoor and complete wilderness, excellent. Will stay again.

Our cottage was perfect for the whole family. Spotless, well equipped, great location and had a beautiful garden. We can't recommend it highly enough. We had an amazing family holiday
