    Mr Barr

    “A fabulous, warm, comfortable, spacious, very well-equipped, dog-friendly, beautifully converted barn in a delightful area.”

    Possibly the best self-catering property we've ever stayed in!

The property

300 yards from the good food pub in Manaton, on a hedgerow-sheltered lane leading to the moors, a detached cottage beautifully converted from an old barn.

It has the benefit of modern insulation/underfloor heating with the charm of ancient stonework.

To one side, cobbled courtyard (table/chairs) and opposite, over a little lane, steps up to big, gently sloping garden (picnic table/chairs) with space for ball games or quiet reflection.

Fourteen acres of woods and fields to explore (following the country code, dogs not permitted where livestock grazes); Hayne Brook runs beside the paddocks, perfect for Pooh sticks; the owners are pleased to introduce children to their friendly farm animals.

Six steps up to front door to hall with coats-cupboard; utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, loo).

Spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, fridge, electric cooker, hand-crafted cupboards, granite worktops) with slate/oak floor, woodburner, TV/DVD, big feather sofa and glazed door to courtyard.

Open tread stairs up to two bedrooms - a double (5' bed) with balustrade and en suite shower-room (suite), and another double (5' zip-linked bed or 2'6" twins) with en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower).

DIY stabling, by arrangement (extra).

A quality cottage within walking distance of the open moor; fine walks from the doorstep. Manaton: pretty little village (pub with small shop, tennis court, playground, church) in a beautiful part of Dartmoor, and close to spectacular rock tors (Hound Tor, Bowerman’s Nose) and lovely tree-filled valleys (Lustleigh Cleave).

Golf driving range, 5 miles.

Nearest shop, 5 miles.

Riding stables not far; Chagford, 6; the sea (Teignmouth/Torbay), 15.
