Acorn Barn, Near Okehampton, Devon

5 of 5
We stayed during July 2017 and found the barn conversion to be very clean and comfortable. On arrival, we enjoyed a Devon cream tea supplied by Alison which was a lovely surprise and well received. The cottage is set in a lovely and peaceful location, but within quick and easy access of the Dartmoor National Park, Okehampton and the A30. The barn has obviously been converted to a high standard and had everything we needed for our week-long stay. The barn should be of interest to anyone with a disability as the downstairs wet-room and kitchen has obviously been designed with this in mind. The local village of Belstone and it's pub (The Tors) is also recommended.

Fabulous holiday getaway.

5 of 5
The Cowshed more than lived up to our expectations. Light and airy, the conversion has been beautifully completed to a very high spec. The property is perfectly situated to explore Dartmoor and the wonderful Devon coast. There are shops, restaurants and pubs at nearby Mortonhampstead. We had a wonderful week here and were well looked after by owners Wendy and Mark, without hesitation we would happily recommend The Cowshed for a superb holiday in the lovely Devon countryside.
