Beautiful little cottage done out in a very high spec everything had a touch of class about it. On arrival waiting for us a mass of homemade mince pies, a box of eggs from their farm (Best ever tasted) a bottle of Presecco and a box of chocolates, a lovely touch that instantly made us feel welcome. The view from the back of the cottage was stunning and at night not one bit of ambient light, so many stars. To top this off you are only a 6 - rmin walk away from a great pub "Ruggleston inn" great beer and excellent homemade food and very friendly locals. We enjoyed some long walks with great scenery highly recommend this for a getaway weekend or week. Almost forgot a great wood burning fire that kept the place snug and warm, just go!!!!

The cottage was everything as described and more. Cupboards were filled with games and dvds that just added to our enjoyment! The children loved the pool and the area for walking our new pooch!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The tithe barn was a fabulous place to spend Christmas. It has been beautifully restored, with light and airy rooms, and plenty of space for a party of adults. The open plan main reception room meant that the cook wasn't shut away from the festivities, which was a nice change, and the underfloor heating meant that we were toasty warm despite some very cold weather outside. We have had breaks in many holiday lets, but the Tithe Barn was by far the best equipped we have ever been to. The location is brilliant, with walks on Dartmoor right on your doorstep, but beaches an easy drive away, given that Ashburton is on the edge, not the middle of Dartmoor. Plymouth and Exeter are not too far away either; we can personally recommend Exeter for theatres, cinema, and many places to eat out if you need them. However there are a few places to get great food in Ashburton itself, and we had a wonderful meal in Moorish, which is only a ten minute walk from the barn. Stuart and Jane were very welcoming, even before we arrived, contacting us with suggestion for places to eat out, and offers to take in our shopping order if we needed them to. There are plenty of maps and leaflets in the barn so you will never be short of places to visit, but Stuart and Jane are close by it you need any help at all. A nice touch again was being shown around the barn when we arrived, by owners who are justifiably proud of their property. Thanks again to Jane for the welcome mince pies and the bottle of prosecco in the fridge, to start off our Christmas celebrations. Definitely a property we hope to revisit!
