  • Charming, rural countryside barn conversion located within Dartmoor National Park with walks and treks in abundance
  • 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

This delightful first floor apartment in a stunning barn conversion makes an ideal base for those wanting to explore the rugged, rural landscape of Dartmoor National Park and beyond. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, it’s easy to immerse yourself in the tranquillity and adopt the slower pace of life that you’d expect in the Devon countryside. With lots of scenic walks from your doorstep, you’ll never get bored, but historic, market town, Tavistock, is only 4 miles away with a range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

One of two apartments in this conversion, this property is situated on the first floor and accessed via an external flight of stairs. Inside, the tastefully decorated open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner provides plenty of usable space for two guests. The contemporary style used throughout creates a light and airy feel, making it the perfect environment for relaxing. The double bedroom is once again contemporary and spacious, with its neutral tones making it feel restful. Outside the property, there is a small, private patio with garden furniture, which is a great place to sit and soak up the fresh country air. There is also a large, shared garden with BBQ.

Dartmoor is suited to those who enjoy exploring by foot, with places like Lydford Gorge (9 miles) providing particularly picturesque walks. There are also opportunities for those who enjoy cycling, with the Devon Cycle Network passing within one mile of the property. For those interested in history, the National Trust’s Castle Drogo, a 1920s Art Deco castle, is worth the drive (27 miles) with stunning gardens and grounds to explore. There are lots of other quaint towns and villages to explore within the National Park.

The Barn is absolutely wonderful, very relaxing and peaceful. It is very well equipped to the highest standard and the bed was much more comfortable than the one we have at home! During our stay we felt very at home and even Eos, our nervous dog, settled in very well. We were sorry to be leaving but we will return as soon as we can, if only to see Read morethe stars in the completely dark sky. Good WiFi and a great pub a 30 minute walk away. I wholeheartedly recommend it. Perfect holiday home. Hide

Everything was perfect for the 3 of us (2 adults & 1 pooch). Very comfortable place to stay, with lots of places to visit not too far away to drive to or walk. Couldn't believe how dark it was at night, which gave us great opportunities to star gaze some nights. Village pub has a great menu & the food was good. Only 1 mile away but too far to walk Read moredown the remote single track unlit road. Hide
