The Barn is a tradtional old barn conversion situated in a small farming hamlet on the gentle slopes of South Dartmoor. We offer quality accommodation in a peaceful and relaxing environment. Our breakfasts are organic and locally sourced. The gardens have several little seating areas which catch the sun throughout the day and evening where you can relax after your walk on Dartmoor or your visit to the many nearby attractions.
We are well situated within 25 miles of the historic cities of Plymouth & Exeter near the A38 Devon express way, this also means the English Riveria is close by. There are a wealth of attractions within easy reach such as Dartmoor, 365 square miles of moorland, formed from a granite plateau in the Ice Age, a million years ago. Visit the old stone/bronze age hut circles and pre-historic stone rows and Buckfast Abbey, a Benedictine Monastery with a thousand years of Christian history. The market town of Newton Abbot and the medieval town of Tavistock are within easy reach. The Primrose Steam Railway Line, for enthusiasts or anyone who would enjoy a trip down memory lane, runs from Buckfastleigh to Totnes through the beautiful River Dart Valley.
Our location is ideal for walkers being directly on the 2 Moors Way and one good days walk from Ivybridge.
