  • “We arrived late at night due to traffic delays but found Monty and Sally there with a warm greeting with lights and heating on.”

    There was milk in the fridge and home baked cakes. The cottage and garden are fantastic and the garden was totally safe for our dog. There was every comfort inside the cottage and the views were stunning. We really enjoyed our time there and would have no hesitation in recommending Buster Barn. Certainly if we are down that way again we would rebook the cottage.

The property

In Sampford Spiney, peacefully at the end of a private drive off narrow, winding moorland lanes, a detached single-storey cottage converted from a sturdy granite barn, surrounded by an enclosed courtyard (table/chairs, barbecue) with pond (netted), over which a bridge (handrail) leads to gently sloping hillside garden and arbour with spectacular long views to a panorama of tors.

To one side, the friendly owners' home and a resident neighbouring cottage, all bordered by horse-grazed fields through which you can wander.

Lane walk to the open moor: Crip Tor and Ingra Tor, around ¾ mile.

From parking area, gravelled pathway to 7 big uneven granite steps (alternative level access via gravelled courtyard) up to front door (5'5" lintel); spacious beamed open-plan living/dining/oak fitted kitchen (washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob/electric oven) with armchairs and sofa bed (converts to double bed for alternative sleeping), TV/DVD, iPod dock, table/chairs for 4 and glazed double doors to courtyard.

Double bedroom with en suite bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Spring water.

The best of both worlds here: scenic and secluded, yet close to interesting moorland towns. Sampford Spiney: hamlet (church, cottages, scattered farms) in the River Walkham valley on the scenic western slopes of Dartmoor.

Dousland (pub, PO), 3 miles; Yelverton (shops, pub, golf), 4; Tavistock (interesting shops, markets, pubs, restaurants, wharfside theatre), 6.

Plymouth and south coast, 13 miles.
