Ashburton, Dartmoor National Park, Devon, England
The Granary Barn is a cosy self catering cottage on the edge of Dartmoor, with easy access to the moor and coast, that sleeps 2. With high vaulted ceilings, oodles of beams and plenty of space to relax it has the wow factor. With large chandeliers, reclaimed oak furniture and sublime views, you’re bound to feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of life. Located on the first floor*, the barn is surrounded by rolling hills.

Comprising of a stunning living room, fully fitted kitchen, king size bed in the snuggliest of rooms and a shower big enough for two, this really is a romantic rural retreat.

I feel so lucky to have stumbled across the granary barn after a wonderful few days spent on Sarah and Nick's farm. The cottage itself is beautifully finished with everything you need to be comfortable and then some. The views of the hills are lovely and the farm itself has so much charm. Nick and Sarah were very accommodating and...

The dogs on the farm were our favourite thing, especially scruff who was always there to greet us and even joined us on a walk. We ate at the restaurant which is owned...

We had a three night stay at The Granary Barn recently as we were attending a wedding in Newton Abbot and wanted to extend our break to a day either side. Although the accommodation is off the beaten track it is near enough to all of the action and the local taxi firm were cheap and very reliable. Sarah and...
