Amazing views across the Tamar valley - can even see impressive rail viaduct right from the kitchen window & a great place for walking and getting away from the business of urban life.

The Threshing Barn was THE best holiday we have had as a family. Amazing accommodation, beautiful views and everything we needed! Loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you!!!! 5 star from start to finish... Just wish we had longer but awesome family memories.

Arrived in the dark, wind and rain but Kim and Bernard's directions were very good. Well appointed property, spotlessly clean and well main-maintained, with everything you would need for a short (or longer!) stay, including dishwasher and washing machine. Drawing the curtains the following morning revealed views over Dartmoor and a small garden complete with bird feeders and loads of birds and a pond with a visiting heron! Ideal location for exploring Dartmoor and the local area with Tavistock and Okehampton a short drive away. Kim and Bernard were very friendly hosts living in the adjoining property. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting peace and tranquility to unwind and recharge batteries.
