Why Property Manager chose Manaton
Town Barton is a wonderful home in the heart of the village that enjoys unspoiled views across Dartmoor to Haytor. The garden is a gem, south facing, warm and sunny. The village of Manaton sits in Dartmoor national park yet is only 15 minutes drive from the A38 dual carriageway giving excellent access to other parts of Devon.
No dogs upstairs.

Spacious holiday house
The property was clean and welcoming. The garden is very pretty and we appreciated the fresh garden flowers in every room, as well as the homemade cake and eggs and bacon. Thank you for a lovely stay. The girls loved the table tennis.
Fabulous property with lots of space for our group of all ages. Lovely relaxing setting James and Sally were very welcoming and helpful. All our group loved feeding the sheep, horses and collecting the eggs. Fab welcome pack to get you started. Car needed to get about but some lovely areas not far away.
Beautiful house in a gorgeous setting.
We had a lovely time in this house. We loved the spacious country house feel of it and the main kitchen/breakfast room was gorgeous. We spent loads of time in the beautiful garden appreciating the view of the sheep, horses and countryside beyond. The kids loved the hottub (and the smart TV!) and actually fed the sheep and met the horses. James, Sally and family were pleasant hosts and were always around with advice on where to go however they gave us our privacy. It's a very isolated spot but this worked in its favour for us and it was nice that people were never very far away if we needed them. The lovely welcome goodies (meat and eggs from the farm and a yummy home made lemon iced cake) were most welcome and we bought various bits from local houses with honesty boxes and lovely farm shops. We were always out and about with the dog and the kids to the moor, wild swimming on various walks and to very local Becky Falls. We really managed to relax and unwind during our stay here and would definitely come again. We liked the hosts relaxed approach however to give constructive feedback a little bit more instruction on what to do on entrance and exit as well as any useful info on the house and local areas would probably go down well. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Thank you Sue really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We usually like to be present as guests arrive and depart so I am sorry we just missed you. We will take that on board for future guests.
