A peaceful location, really comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, coast and moors nearby, a convenient shop (five minutes walk) and pubs that serve good food are also within walking distance. Wifi was slow most of the time, but couldn't spoil anything for us. We would definitely recommend Parke Barn!

It's bright, spacious and well equipped, and is an ideal spot to explore the South Devon coast and the Dartmoor National Park. We'll definitely be back!
