Remotely situated, a comfortable granite barn conversion with its own garden in a working farm yard offers a self catering base in the middle of Dartmoor National Park. Open plan living space, exposed beams, AGA and king sized bed. Ideal for exploring Dartmoor on foot, by car or by bike. Get away from it all! A bridle path runs through the yard should you want to walk to Hexworthy, Princetown, Postbridge or beyond. Pick up/drop off service available at cost. Alternatively explore Dartmoor by car
A converted granite barn, it has painted stone walls and exposed beams. The open plan living space is warm and welcoming. It has most amenities (shower/washing machine/AGA) but is free from many of the distractions of modern life, there is no traffic or light pollution; the nearest mobile phone signal is half a mile up the hill. Get away from the world for a week!
Please note the cottage has a shower room, no bath so no long soaks but who would want to with all of Dartmoor to explore!
The Lower Barn has it's own garden but it's real beauty rests in the fact that it sits on a bridle path in the middle of Dartmoor with miles of other paths and acres of open-access land with myriad archaeological and geological features and local legends to explore.
Interaction with guests
On a working farm and sawmill with the family farmhouse just across the way, there is almost always someone around to offer help. Whether it be how hill farming works or how to cook on an authentic AGA! However guests preferring privacy will receive it. There are dogs loose around the yard and you will see tractors and other livestock from time to time.
Other things to note
Perfect for couples or single travellers wanting the peace and quiet of rural Devon however not for those who feel the need to constantly stay in touch with outside world! This is based in a working yard so do expect some agricultural noise from time to time!!
Beef and eggs from the farm normally available and can be pre-ordered or do ask once you arrive.
Babes in arms could be brought but we do not have a cot. Do feel free to contact us if you want to discuss any of the above.
