Deer Park Barn is a superb holiday cottage in a wonderful rural setting at Haccombe, Nr Newton Abbot, Devon. This super split level self contained two bedroom barn conversion is part of a large detached property which is shared with the owners and enjoys wonderful countryside views from the rear patio and from both bedrooms. The quiet rural setting of the barn creates a feeling of countryside seclusion with fields, woodlands and wildlife all around and pleasant walks available directly from the garden, however the main seaside resorts of Teignmouth and Shaldon are only 5 miles away as is a lovely quiet cove at Maidencombe which is well worth seeking out so offering complete contrasts depending on your preferred holiday tastes. The lovely thatched cottage villages of Combeinteignhead and Stokeinteignhead with fine country inns are very close by all offering great food and the market town of Newton Abbot with a selection of shops and supermarkets is only a few miles away. The popular resort of Torquay is also within a very short drive of just under 10 miles again offering good shops and super attractions and beaches. The accommodation is well presented and comfortably furnished and is ideal for a family or couples looking for a quiet holiday retreat but who still want to be conveniently located for the South Devon coastline and resorts.

Helen and Fuad were very pleasant and uncomplicated people. They gave us many useful tips about tourist attractions or insider tip. The cottage was very "gemütlich" and we had everything we needed. We loved it.
We enjoyed our stay and found the owners friendly and hospitable. We did miss the wi-fi & phone signal, but appreciated the rural location so worked round it. Good location for exploring Dawlish, Teignmouth & Paignton area. We did wonder how guests used to cities would cope with the long rather rough track if they are not used to such things; OK for us as we live in the country. Maybe a sign by the end of the stones and a clearer sign by the last bit of track where there's a fork in the track would help other guests - we did spot the sign but would have been difficult if we had arrived after dark.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Deer Park Barn, Helen and Fuan could not have been more friendly, welcoming or helpful. The accommodation was delightful, very comfortable with everything that could be needed available. Facilities were of a good standard and we particularly appreciated the large 'wet room' shower. It is a lovely quiet location with very pleasant grounds and a beautiful outlook. We are hoping to stay there again before too long and would definitely recommend the cottage to others.
This was a last minute booking done in a rush so wasn't confident. Needn't have worried. PerfectPerfectPerfect. A really comfortable property with everything you could need. Wonderful setting. So peaceful. And Helen and Fuad were so welcoming. The best holiday we've had in a while. Didn't want to leave. Thank you both
Brilliant place for a family holiday. Lovely location and very welcoming. The kids loved the wildlife (foxes, pheasants etc) and it's very peaceful for the adults !
Highly recommended !
The only downside was the state of the track to get to the cottage once the tarmac road gave out.The worst part was the first section up to Church farm with many potholes and speed ramps.As said the cottage itself,our welcome and the lovely grounds were great.We would consider going back.
