“Very helpful owners”
“Cosy Cottage for a peaceful break”
Great little cottage with everything you need for a restful break away. Within walking distance of Horrabridge which has some good pubs and a fish & chip shop (best ever). The moor is also in walking distance or a short drive. Pet friendly. Very comfy beds. Owners very helpful with local info. Would definately recommend for a relaxing break.
“The barn was spotlessly clean, the hosts were excellent and we will definitely go back again if possible.”
“Everything was great.”
Very friendly hosts. Nice location. Wifi due to BT a little weak.
“The location was perfect for us.”
So peaceful. The cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. We were able to walk to the village in the morning and buy fresh rolls from a unique bakers ,the round walk was very pretty. There are so many moor walks within a short drive. Absolutely perfect.
“The cottage was beautifully restored and equipped, with a natural, rural setting.”
The owner and his wife were very helpfull and kind, and gave us many suggestions what o see and where to go. It could even have been perfect if the weather (many days of severe rainfall) had been more kind ! But still it was overall a very succesfull and relaxing week.
“We had a lovely time at Blacksmith Barn, it's in a great location with walks direct from the driveway, other long walks on the Moor are within a few minutes' drive and Tavistock is on the doorstep when you need essentials.”
The Barn is well appointed and cosy, it's set within beautiful grounds The owners are very friendly and helpful too. Don't worry about the driveway it's fine, I might not take a Lamborghini or a tank down it but the owner has a large 4x4 and a small hatchback and has no problems in either to give some idea.
“Driveway very narrow.”
We arrived in the dark and the drive was very difficult to navigate in our Mercedes. Even in daylight the sensors, which light up red if extremely close to objects, were flashing and bleeping. A warning about the width limitation would have been useful. My husband is a very experienced driver and knows the width of his car well.
“Cottage was very comfortable and well appointed.”
The hosts were lovely. We had beautiful weather which helped to make this a very good Autumn break.
“We very much enjoyed our stay.”
Blacksmith Barn is set in a beautiful and peaceful part of the countryside. Very well appointed and decorated. Cosy and warm for a winter stay. We will be back!

About the location
Tavistock 4.5 miles; Plymouth 11.5 miles.
Horrabridge is a charming riverside village located within beautiful Dartmoor National Park in Devon. The River Walkham, well known for its salmon fishing, flows vigorously under the village bridge, which is said to be the oldest in West Devon. An excellent base for a holiday in Devon, Horrabridge has a combination of olde-worlde charm and modern facilities, including a good pub near the river and a selection of small shops. There are many excellent walks starting from the village, taking you up onto Dartmoor and providing you with glorious views of the surrounding fields and hills where sheep and Dartmoor ponies gently graze. The market town of Tavistock, the main town of Dartmoor's western moor, is an exceptionally attractive town, owing much to fine Victorian architecture and its picturesque location on the banks of the River Tavy. There is no shortage of shops and cafes in Tavistock, plus the town is home to the purpose built Pannier Market - a must for every visitor.
