  • The perfect romantic getaway in a fantastic location at the foot of White Tor for views
  • A few miles from the attractive market town of Tavistock
Property code: HIGHM

First floor studio apartment, located within the boundaries of Dartmoor National Park, with access to fantastic walks directly from the front door, just three miles from the town of Tavistock.

This property makes a fantastic location for a break for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits and want to make the most of all that the local area has to offer. Dartmoor is quite literally on the doorstep, situated at the foot of the Iron Age hillfort of White Tor, with miles of walks to be enjoyed. For those who prefer to explore on two wheels, rather than on foot, the Devon Cycle Network passes within one mile of the property, taking visitors all the way down to Plymouth. The town of Tavistock is just two miles from the property, offering a range of shops, restaurants, a theatre and a bustling market. Further afield, yet still within easy access, there are many more places of interest including Buckland Abbey, the 18th century Saltram manor house and the National Marine Aquarium.

This property is one of two studio apartments in this converted barn, with this, the first-floor apartment, being accessed via a flight of external stairs which lead to the front door. On entering the property, guests will find that the open-plan space has everything that they will need to make themselves at home. In the lounge area of the room, sofa seating allows guests to take advantage of the spectacular views, as well as to enjoy the Smart TV/DVD with Freeview and Netflix. The dining area has a table seating two, beyond which the kitchen area is equipped with an oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment, microwave, washing machine and coffee machine. The sleeping area has a king sized bed and bedside tables, and an adjacent en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Outside, the property has a small private patio and also enjoys access to the shared one acre garden, with outdoor furniture and BBQ, making it a lovely place to sit out and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. There is covered bike storage available, and it is also possible to borrow bikes if you are unable to transport your own. There is off-road parking for one car.

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

The Barn is perfect for couples. Stay for a week or a long weekend, comfortably, in a warm and spacious conversion that has everything needed to help snuggle you into Autumnal breaks away from home.

Lovely property - very comfortable with everything you need. Good location, although we had poor weather so didnt explore as much as we would have liked. So plan to return.

Our apartment was fabulous. Spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending to friends. Perfect base for exploring Devon and into Cornwall. The Peter Tavy Inn is highly recommended and they've got social distancing down to a tee.

Lovely 1st floor apartment in a well converted barn with excellent views. Really well equipped kitchen, spacious living area and comfy sofa and bed. Little seating and cooking area with BBQ outside by the car parking space. We were able to take both dogs which was ideal. Would book again.

Stayed here for the Christmas week, 2019. A lovely welcome when we arrived - Christmas tree up, box of chocs and a bottle of bubbly in the fridge!

Stunning cottage in a lovely location. Our host was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, places to visit are in abundance and reasonably priced. Good idea to be a National Trust or English Heritage member to save cash big time. We would happily stay again .
