Overview

Newton Abbot Barn Rental Photos and Description

1 bed woodland retreat boutique barn

The Hide is luxury 1 bed love nest on the edge of Dartmoor in the picturesque Teign Valley with a private woodland hot tub. Perfect for a romantic getaway, exploring the wonders of Dartmoor or just to simply relax. Set in a peaceful rural woodland setting with wildlife in abundance you can really feel as though you are a million miles away. Watch the rare birds from your window and wait for wild deer to graze right outside, this really is the ultimate rural retreat. Wind down outside in the relaxing private SwimSpa available for use all year round. The Hide can sleep two people comfortably but we can cater for a young child.

The Hide is situated between the ‘chocolate box’ villages of Bridford and Dunsford and just 7 miles from the cathedral city of Exeter and approx 10 miles from the South Devon coast.

The Hide is a perfect location to explore rustic Dartmoor (England’s biggest National Park), with an overwhelming number of beautiful walks in the area. There are plenty of Dartmoor Tors to climb. The nearest easily climbable tor is Heltor Rock which is approximately 2 miles away near the village of Bridford. Just a half mile past Heltor Rock on the same road is the famous Blackingstone Rock which is easily climbable. (There's even a Victorian ladder to help you to the top.) Go two miles beyond Blackingstone Rock and you arrive at Mortonhampstead known as the 'gateway' to the high moor. The high moor has 100s of other tors and is home to many of Dartmoor's Ancient Settlements.

The cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 7 miles away with great shops, restaurants and bars to offer.

Other attractions include Canonteign Falls (England’s highest waterfall), Haldon Forest with extensive walk and cycle routes and fishing in the local Kennick, Trenchford & Tottiford Lakes.

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful accommodation in a lovely setting with enough to do and see locally although we spent most of our time in! Tastefully decorated, helpful instructions and an informative welcome pack, all very nice touches. The hot tub and fire really made our stay. Beyond comfortable bed and Windows to watch the stars as you went to sleep. The only reason we have not given it five stars was the lack of pans and/or a microwave. Struggled to make a decent cooked breakfast, other than that absolutely perfect. Highly recommended. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Really lovely and welcoming and there was even a little basket of treats to welcome us!

  • 5 of 5

I booked The Hide as a birthday present for my other half, we just wanted a few days to get away from it all and it didn't disappoint! When we arrived we instantly fell in love with the property. We decided to have a bbq the first night and whilst we were cooking we had the pleasure of meeting Lizzie and having a little chat. We really cannot recommend The Hide enough, if you're looking to get away from it all and a little bit of luxury and quiet, this is the place! The hot tub is wonderful and we spent 2 evenings sitting out on the decking and going in the hot tub. My other half even remarked that now we are home he can't get used to the noise, it was so blissfully quiet! We even got to see deer grazing early on out last morning! So pleased I booked this place for my other half's birthday, we had a really great time and will definitely be back, thank you!!!!

An open plan modern set up perfect for two.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the Hide. The modern style, the woods, separate access with plenty of private space. The hot tub was a welcome luxury. A really comfy bed with a velux above for fresh air all night and only the sound of the woods! The location was also great for exploring a beautiful part of Devon - Happy Hide dwellers thank you, the Venners xx

A great place and location, very romantic.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Hide, we met the owners and there children, a lovely family and very helpful, the location is perfect for a quiet romantic stay, back to nature, the accommodation was very comfortable, the owners recommended various local pubs to eat, we tried the Bridford Inn, the Nobody Inn and the Manor Inn, all were great eating places, the food at the Manor Inn was near perfect, three great beach resorts well worth a visit are Teignmouth, Budleigh Salterton and Beer, all in all a great week. we loved the hot tub after a day out. Thankyou Jeff and Lizzie.

Not as nice as we had hoped!

  • 3 of 5

The location is fantastic in its proximity to Dartmoor and Torbay. What is not shown is that although you have your own drive the neighbours are just behind the hide and we had the pleasure or not of young children playing on motorised toys most mornings and evenings. The furniture outside is a little old and we had a power cut one night which ment the hot tub took hours and hours to heat, so much so that we couldn't use it. Inside there is no freezer and no microwave. The freesat TV lost its connection on many occasions. There was hardly any storage so we lived out of bags! For a short stay with fresh food or eating out its wonderful but I personally would not use it for more than 3days. We did not meet the owners or have any contact but some people are happy with this. The bed is lovely as is the bathroom and hot tub when it's at the right temperature. We did sit on the patio one evening with a deer no more that 30feet away and at the same time an owl swooped straight across our path. Like I say, a beautiful location but not as nice as we had hoped by reading the reviews. Please don't think I'm picky because I am not just little things that you would expect but didn't get!
