Overview

About the property

Converted barn with open plan living with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathroom with sauna

This completely re-built detached barn for two or four people has been lovingly handcrafted with local oak finished to the top of the range specification, professionally designed and furnished to delight the most discerning visitor to Dartmoor.The uninterrupted views from the sun terrace over surrounding pastureland towards Dartmoor Tors are breathtakingly beautiful. This is a supremely peaceful place to stay, set just off a sleepy lane - and you may see Dartmoor Ponies passing the gate en route for the hills - yet you are within easy reach of many of South Devon's main attractions. A 5 Minute level walk takes you to the welcoming local pub, The Rugglestone Inn, which serves "real ale" and scrumptious food and the village of Widecombe-In-The- Moor, famous for its annual fair is a further 1/2 mile stroll. Visitors enjoy free-range eggs from our tiny flock of hens. Visit in Autumn or Winter for cosy evenings round the wood fire - and come to walk in all seasons in fabulously lovely Dartmoor countryside.

Beneath the vaulted arched Oak trussed roof sits the Lounge and across the bridge the Kitchen and Dining Room, designed as an “upside down house” to make best use of the stunning and uninterrupted views across Dartmoor and create a light and airy and spacious living environment.

Devon made beech framed comfortable sofas sit in the spacious lounge making an ideal and restful environment for lounging in front of the lovely log burner or watching a film from a wide range of DVDs on the large plasma television. Sit and lounge plug in your iPod and relaxing to some music.

The whole house is under floor heated to provide a constant warm atmosphere with silent operation. At night, you can set your own ambience using lamps, low level in-floor lighting or high level up-lights.

The fully equipped kitchen, handmade from solid oak by Dartmoor Carpentry , with granite work surfaces and full size butchers block is an aspiring chef’s delight, with quality pans and knives, a 5 burner two oven range, fridge and separate freezer, dish washer, washing machine/ dryer and everything else we could think you may need. (Even 40 bottles of Red, Rosé and White wine - on an honesty box arrangement).

Downstairs sit the two En-suite bedrooms divided by the entrance hall, one having a contemporary designed fully curtained king-sized four poster bed ,the other having two single beds that zip and link to form a super king sized bed. No expense has been spared on the quality of the linen or mattresses ensuring real comfort and luxury. Cots and high chairs can be provided. The large flagged entrance hall is ideal for outdoor wear and is a great ‘drying room’ because of the under floor heating.

Both designer bathrooms have walk-in showers with big shower heads and loads of room. The baths are spacious and deep, the aim is to make the bathing experience one of quality, warmth and relaxation, soft fluffy towels and candles are provided.

For the colder wetter Dartmoor days, recovery is on hand in the form of a cedar lined sauna, warming and soothing the aches and pains usually caused by the Dartmoor favourites of Walking, Cycling or Horse Riding. The sauna is accessed via the four poster bedroom.

Outside the building is a large south facing terrace, dining area with BBQ and lawn area with sun loungers.

Just a stroll away is a wonderful traditional Dartmoor Pub - The Rugglestone Inn, providing top quality food and drink.

Smoking in the building is not permitted.

An excellent holiday property, beautifully presented.

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Dartmoor was enhanced by the location and quality of the property.

There are too many pluses too mention, but the freshly baked cake definitely deserves a word, thanks Becks.

The reformation of the barn has been well designed and built to a very high standard, the bathrooms in particular are to a standard well above that normally provided in a holiday let.

The local pub is only a very short walk serving many guest ales and excellent food, very busy, need to book in the evenings.

A great base to explore Dartmoor and Devon’s south coast.

The Proprietors are first class hosts with a fine holiday let.

Beautiful property that provide all the home comforts for a relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful converted barn, in a peaceful rural setting. Friendly and helpful hosts who live on site. A friendly pub a short walk away but remember to pack the wellies as can be very wet and muddy.

Although the weather was horrible during our stay it did not matter as the barn has a cosy wood burner, a large selection of dvd’s and an equally impressive wine selection (an honour bar).

We would definitely recommend the Oak Barn for a peaceful relaxing break.

Fantastic location, very well appointed living space

  • 5 of 5

The barn in hidden away in the midst of Dartmoor, not far from Widecombe on the Moor. Part of a former farm complex, bedrooms are on the ground floor, whilst the living area is on the first floor with a spectacular view of the rolling countryside.

We found the barn to be well located for access across the Moor and South Devon. The barn interior was immaculate, with finished wood interior throughout. A wonderfully quiet and peaceful retreat.

Wonderful accommodation - could not fault.

  • 5 of 5

Property was perfect and always lovely to return to after a day out venturing. Really top notch. If you do not mind being a little remote then look no further, this is the accommodation for you. There is ample walking on your doorstep. Two superb pubs within walking distance Rugglestone Inn and The Old Inn both serving food which you could not fault. The Cafe on the Green also within walking distance did an excellent breakfast and Sunday lunch. Also great for a cake and tea.
