Property code: 54302

Situated on the outskirts of the south west side of the Dartmoor National Park, this charming property promises a lavish retreat as well as a great base to explore all that the county has to offer.

The historic town of Tavistock is within a short walk of the barn, with an array of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Tavistock being situated on the outskirts of the Dartmoor National Park, means you are not too far from some of the most breath-taking views, walks and cycle tracks Devon has to offer. Heading south you have the regional capital of Plymouth which offers an array of amenities, not to mention its wealth of day trips, the historic Hoe, the National Marine Aquarium, Theatre Royal and much more. Family attractions nearby are Pennywell Farm, Southwest Segway, Woodlands family theme park and The Dartmoor Mystery Treasure Trail.

The delightful barn conversion is situated within the owner’s grounds which is renowned for its beautiful scenery and set within their own trout fishery. On entering this split-level barn, you are greeted by the light and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, coffee machine, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, and you don’t even need to do the dishes as there is a dishwasher to do the work for you. The lounge area which is accessed via a small set of stairs is a great space to sit back, relax and watch a movie or two on the TV/DVD after a long day of exploring the local surroundings, or, if you still have the energy why not have a game of tennis on the Wii. Heading on up to the first floor there are two bedrooms, one super-king-size (which can be made up as a twin on request) with a TV and one double with a TV. You will also find the bathroom here with a shower and WC. Down to the lower ground floor you have a double bedroom with TV, patio doors leading out onto the garden area and an en-suite shower and WC.

Venture outside to the small enclosed rear patio area, where you will find the hot tub, private BBQ and garden furniture. Fly fishing is available all year and children can try their hand at float fishing (available from Easter - Sept). There are also many areas for children to play including a small football area and play equipment. The resident pigs and Donkeys are also a hit for all ages! A large communal BBQ area is also available for gatherings. There is off-road parking available for four cars with this property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A great location and close by to Tavistock , a little more flexibility would be good for people who book the cottage and are actually fly fishermen , lakes made available on a Monday especially as some might only be there for a long weekend , offer catch and release to residents as the might not want to kill all the fish that they catch, ctah and rRead moreelease is a good option and this can be done under strict control requirements as many of the top fisheries operate this without any Hide

Absolutely fantastic location the lakes and wildlife is great. Shame the local pub is shut but sign of the times at present. The accommodation was a little tired and could do with a bit of a revamp... Bit disappointed we couldnt use the hot tube on the first day after a long drive down But overall great holiday

Lovely location. Lovely area for walks and within walking distance of Tavistock. Hot tub a great addition. Reasonably well equipped. House quite damp/ musty but we were there on a rainy week!

A beautiful setting in a friendly environment with several small trout fishing lakes. If you love animals this is the place for you. Donkeys, Goats, chickens and lots of guinea fowl. (Its not the quietist as the animals like to make a bit of noise but that was fine for us)

The cottage provided everything we needed for an enjoyable family get together. Our six year old loved the animals and the swings in the trees. The fact that there was easy parking was a bonus for us and visitors was a bonus.

Comfortable cosy well equipped cottage on really lovely site just outside of Tavistock ( Scottish walk to centre). We were 4 adults one 17 year old, but this would also suit a family given the number of animals etc. Very very convenient for Dartmoor or coast. Very friendly and helpful host.

A very comfortable, detached, well equipped property with very private terrace and hot tub. Our family of five enjoyed a very pleasant holiday. Very close to Tavistock, with swimming, walking and cycling nearby. Very quiet, scenic location overlooking a trout lake. The owner very pleasant, helpful and accommodating.
