Really great

5 of 5
Barn, location, activities - all great. Just take care with the narrow roads. Would thoroughly recommend a stay at the barn

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.
