A beautiful haven in total peace and tranquility in magnificent surroundings with fabulous views.

  • 5 of 5

The barn is fantastic; large, spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. The bed linen is delightful, the bedroom curtains are beautiful and the beds are very comfy. There is plenty of hot water, and the barn is very warm. The views are stunning, plenty of sightings of the buzzards which are sometimes very close. The games room with table tennis and darts was great fun! The barn has everything to make your holiday a most relaxing and memorable time. The area is wonderful, with delightful drives and walks on Dartmoor. A total joy.

Another Wonderful Week in an Amazing Barn

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit and once again we had a wonderful week, regardless of the weather.

The barn is perfectly styled, extremely comfortable and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break.

The views from all aspects of the barn are breathtaking, the stream at the bottom of the field is a real treat. The games barn is great and made a perfect race track for our 3 year old, finally not forgetting the tree house and trampoline which is an added extra for everyone to enjoy.

Goes without saying, we will be back!

stunning barn

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday in this perfect location. The Barn had everything we needed and was so comfortable. The grounds were lovely and the whole place was so peaceful and quiet, just sitting outside with a cold beer watching the scenery was incredible. There was plenty for us to do in the local area with our 2 year old. We'll definitely return.
