  • "Linda the owner was very friendly and helpful when we needed it, but gave us the privacy we went for."

    Very quiet peaceful location. Could have done with a hot tub for relaxing in after a days site seeing.

  • "Best thing was the fantastic view from the large end window."

    Also the location, being about an hour's drive from both N and S coast and close to the moors. Would have been nice to have separate bedroom but we knew that when we booked. Weather wasn't great but we managed to get out and about every day.

The property

Lifton 4 miles.

A sympathetic barn conversion using lovely local materials, The Retreat is a fabulous studio with amazing views over Dartmoor yet just 3 miles from the local pub.

This beautiful character property offers a high level of accommodation for a couple who really want to get away from it all, either on a short break or a longer holiday.

The fully-equipped kitchenette and shower room offer modern features, while the comfortable king-size bed and seating area make the most of those spectacular views out through the French windows.

The Retreat sits in its own enclosed courtyard with seating area and ample off road parking.

It's the perfect place to take in the incredible views across Dartmoor and enjoy your morning coffee or watch a spectacular sunset with a glass of wine.

With fabulous country walks and fly fishing virtually on the doorstep, the cottage is the perfect base for an outdoorsy couple who want to get back to nature.

Don't miss a visit to the 15th-century church of St Mary's at nearby Lifton, and enjoy the pubs and restaurants of this beautiful village.

There are also mysterious animal carvings in the church at nearby Broadwoodswidger.

More shops, cafes and restaurants can also be found at Launceston and Okehampton.

Dartmoor lies at the heart of Devon and is a paradise for walkers and cyclists.

Follow the journey of Tarka the Otter by cycling the Tarka Trail, or journey the entire length of the Devon Coast to Coast path.

There's so much to explore in the Dartmoor National Park you'll want to return again and again.

With its tranquillity, character and an unforgettable location, The Retreat is the perfect base for both Cornwall and Devon.
