On arrival, we enjoyed a Devon cream tea supplied by Alison which was a lovely surprise and well received. The cottage is set in a lovely and peaceful location, but within quick and easy access of the Dartmoor National Park, Okehampton and the A30. The barn has obviously been converted to a high standard and had everything we needed for our week-long stay. The barn should be of interest to anyone with a disability as the downstairs wet-room and kitchen has obviously been designed with this in mind. The local village of Belstone and it's pub (The Tors) is also recommended.

The new bed is very comfortable. The views are stunning and better still you can see them from the sofa too. My only word of caution would be to wheelchair users! My husband is one, you do need to be able to manage some walking as the bathrooms are not easy to manage in a wheelchair, although the rest of the apartment and the building are fine and will certainly go back again. A special mention too for Sandra, the cleaner/caretaker, she is lovely, friendly, does a great meet and greet job and couldn't be more helpful.
