A romantic cottage in a beautiful location with the added benefit of ground floor facilities and a four poster bed.

For a romantic rural idyll, look no further than The Barn. Set amidst the rolling Haldon Hills, this picturesque cottage has everything you need for an idyllic and peaceful break. It is set within the grounds of the owner’s home, and the entrance to the cottage has an electric awning to shade you from the heat of a summer’s day. The cosy living/kitchen/dining area has a wealth of character, with beamed ceiling, exposed stone walls and wood floor. The comfortable leather sofas are perfect for snuggling up together and watching the 51” Freeview TV. The kitchen area has everything you need to create a romantic meal for two. The luxurious double bedroom has a 5ft four poster bed with gorgeous crisp linen, ideal for a good night’s rest.

Outside there is a private walled garden with pretty pond, providing an idyllic place to enjoy the sunshine and indulge in al fresco breakfast or supper. Try spotting the wildlife within the grounds or for something a little bit different, why not experience beekeeping? Nature and cycle trails in the Forestry Commission can be found just ½ mile away, or explore the nearby Dartmoor National Park, both of which provide perfect ways to spend quality time with your loved one. For lovers of the outdoors, horse riding is available at Haldon Riding Stables, just ½ mile away, golf can be found just under 5 miles at Teign Valley, and there is fishing at South View Fishery and Shillingford St George, approximately 3 miles away.

Entrance with electric sun awning. Extremely comfortable beamed living room, dining area, well-equipped kitchen area with ceramic hob. Beamed double bedroom with 5ft four-poster bed. Shower room with toilet.

    This is a really comfortable cottage set in a lovely quiet location, albeit only 3 miles from the A38. The furnishing, decor and equipment are of high standard and there is opportunity to see badgers at close range.

    We had a very good time at The Barn, the cottage is very nice and cosy and the surroundings are so lovely we didn't want to leave ... The landlords are very nice and friendly and we even saw a real badger at night. We hope to be back soon to enjoy that lovely place again. Chrystelle and Emmanuel (France)

    We had a wonderful week, Ken and his wife were superb hosts, just the right amount of interaction. We were fanatical badger watches by the end of the week using Ken's webcam to watch them visit each night about 10. Sainsbury's superstore is an easy 3 mile drive or the local post office has emergency rations. It is a wonderful base for visiting all the surrounding attractions and being National Trust members we were spoilt for choice. The property was of the highest standard with so much attention given to the finishing details by Ken's wife. We will visit again in the future.
