    Helen and Chris were excellent hosts and it has to be said, have thought of absolutely everything here. Jacob's Barn is a wonderful place to stay, quiet and peaceful and very secure for our two dogs. Whether you're looking for a complete break away from society or a base to visit some of the places Devon and Cornwall have to offer, Jacob's Barn is a real home from home. As has been mentioned previously on other reviews, it is very much out of the way, the closest town being Tavistock which is around 5 miles away so if you're looking to wander out for a drink or to pick up something from the local shop then that's not going to happen. Prepare properly and it's not an issue. There's plenty to do, tennis court, croquet, ample board games and table tennis, and two outdoor seating areas to enjoy a glass of wine or dinner. We felt very comfortable here and the dogs loved it too. The delicious home made cake, the chocolates and the biscuits for the dogs were a lovely personal touch. The pictures and description represent the property very well.

The property

Jacob's Barn is a beautifully converted former barn, built in the early 18th century.

Today it a stylish modern home which retains many original period features such as beamed ceilings and the original mill stone which now forms the centrepiece of the fountain outside.

Here, you can explore the fields and streams of the six-acre farm estate and you are welcome to use the grass tennis court or simply enjoy the tranquil location from the decked seating area.

Inside, the farmhouse kitchen is well equipped, and the large, comfortable lounge, off which is a games room with a table tennis, has an open fire.

Upstairs, the three pretty bedrooms are full of character, with ancient exposed beams and have lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

A haven for walkers, the western edge of Dartmoor is home to the National Trust's Lydford Gorge, and Brentor.
