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.
