Blackadon Barns was perfect accommodation for a long weekend stay for 40 guests at our daughter’s wedding. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, all kitchens well equipped, and the large living room in New Buzzard was ideal for eating and congregating together. The barns are beautifully located in peaceful countryside. Mark and Jacky were exceedingly helpful and friendly. Thank you... More

Mark and Jacky came to our rescue when our booked accomdation was flooded. At the 11th hour they were able to accomodate 18 of us for my 60th birthday celebrations. The lounge and dining room of New Buzzard were perfect for our needs and the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. Mark and Jacky were very helpful and even managed to... More

Fabulous location on the edge of Dartmoor and very rural and quiet. We were a group of 9 couples and rented the big barn conversion which accommodated us all comfortably with each couple having their own bedroom and bathroom. Rooms were clean and comfortable if a little basic. Very friendly and knowledgeable proprietors made us feel very welcome.

We stayed in the New Buzzard cottage for a weekend with a large group of friends. The lounge/ kitchen/ dining area was perfect with plenty of room for all. The people running the place were very helpful, dealing with a problems very fast and very friendly as well. The only thing that was a bit funny was the bedroom layout,... More

Stayed in the Badge Cottage for only 1 night (unfortunately). In an absolutely idilic location. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with a large living room, two bathrooms, and a very well equipped kitchen (like you would have at home). As a result we felt at home straight away. Had a great quality sleep and a great look around... More

Loved being able to walk right out on Dartmoor from the driveway. I was there with a group. The place was perfect for us! Cozy, comfortable. Beautiful property and the hosts were great! Mark was wonderful to talk too. Found out so much about Dartmoor and the area!

My husband and I stayed here for a week with a group of 17 like-minded hobbyists. The old stone buildings, lush landscape and comfortable areas outside to relax and enjoy the amazing views from are only part of the charm. Jackie and Mark are the most delightful and accommodating hosts who are so knowledgable about the area both historically and... More

My husband and I were part of a group staying at Blackadon. The owners are a delightful couple and made us feel like family. Our particular plan included wonderful meals prepared by them. The cottages are simple, comfortable rooms, the area beautiful and we loved every minute of this trip.

This is the second time I have brought a group of hikers to Blackadon. Besides the wonderful accommodations, Mark & Jacky Walker are the best hosts! They were attentive to all the needs of this diverse group, offered to make reservations at local restaurants and just went over and above our group's expectations. Mark's knowledge of the nearby area and... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed here 3 times and it is always been fantastic. The cottage was cosy and well equipped, and perfect for a country get-away. We stayed in Stable cottage and it was a perfect size for us. The coast is only a 20 minute drive away, and you can see the sea from the garden area.... More
