Barn Style Conversion With Lovely Open Rural Views

Bedrooms 1
Property type barn
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Barn in Blackawton Nr. Dartmouth, South Devon, England - Woodside View Stands High On The Side Of A Classically Beautiful South Devon Valley

The overall appearance of Woodside View is similar to a barn conversion with the lower walls in natural stone, upper areas clad in cedar wood and the roof is in local slate. The design is intended to blend in with the surrounding woodland and countryside. The large feature apex window affords superb open views of the woods and skyline where the sun rises. Ideally situated with Dartmouth 4 miles (10mins drive) and the other principle towns of Totnes, Kingsbridge and Salcombe within easy reach.

About David and Karen White

We moved down to the South Hams in 2010 after living in Bath for 25 years. This area was well known to us after having spent many enjoyable holidays with our family in the past.

We are now semi retired and are fully integrated into the local community.

David and Karen White purchased this barn in 2010

Why David and Karen White chose Blackawton

We wanted to be close to the main principal towns in the South Hams - Totnes, Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth. David in particular has always had a desire to be close to the sea and beaches.

What makes this barn unique

Blackawton seemed the ideal choice for our move being just outside the village but within walking distance from local pub, restaurant, village shop etc.

With its wonderful panaramic views and wildlife we knew Woodside seemed the perfect location.

Amazing accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying in Woodside View. Everything you could have needed for your stay, very very clean. Wonderful views from the big window and extremely confortable. Visited lots of places. Dartmouth is lovely, used park and ride which was great as there is not much parking in Dartmouth and was very busy. It was great to just sit by the river and watch all the different boats used some of the ferries to cross over to Kingswear. We would definitely stay here again if staying in this part of country. Thank you for letting us share your beautiful home with us.

Woodside View Cottage

  • 1 of 5

Disappointed with our stay at this cottage due to following reasons.

Cleanliness.. the furniture had not been moved for cleaning showing dust and hair under all tables, the headboard was made from fabric and the top of it was thick with dust and had hairs on the front of it. The floor around the toilet and the pipes were thick with dust and the toilet bowl had not been cleaned. Found pubic hairs on wall by the toothbrush holder. There were quite a few cobwebs with dead spiders in.

Comfort.. the settee had feather filled cushions which upon sitting compacted down and had no support making it feel like sitting on a wooden seat, the bed was advertised as medium on one side and firm on the other, but the mattress was extremely soft on both sides.

Welcome pack.. information about the cottage states some milk will be provided on arrival, we did not have any milk or any other form of a welcome pack as is usually provided by owners, however there were a few teabags and a jar of used coffee.

Woodside View is a lovely place for a fabulous holiday. Just wish we could have stayed longer!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Woodside View, the owners David & Karen were extremely helpful and welcoming.

Woodside View is extremely comfortable and very well looked after. There is everything you need for your holiday including the free bird of prey display courtesy of the lovely buzzards.

We can't recommend Woodside View enough and we've already been talking about a return visit.

Furnished & maintained to a high standard.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is furnished to a high standard and is well equipped. It is in a quiet location with wonderful country views. The owners kindly loaned us extra kitchen equipment so I could make a couple of puddings for a wedding we were attending.

This was our second visit to Woodside View. The views from the large window are lovely - rolling hills, deer, birds of prey and the cows! Karen and David are very helpful with lots and suggestions for both visits and dining. As for the facilities within the apartment, what can I say - everything is of a very high spec. Woodside View is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.

Third time lucky - another fantactic stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time at Woodside View and yet again we could not fault it. The property is light and comfortable, equipped to a very high standard. The selling point for us is its tranquil position, nestled in rolling Devon countryside with only cows, birds and wildlife for the company. A real escape from it all. It is also very convenient for Dartmouth, local beaches, several National Trust properties and also the Dartmoor. There is also a decent pub in the nearby village, plus several excellent restaurants in 10 - 15 minutes' drive. Can't wait to go back soon.
