  • "Lovely property in ideal location."

    Would have been 5 stars but one of our party was slightly disabled so no toilet on main floor was a slight issue but otherwise couldn’t recommend highly enough. Would happily revisit

    Mrs BarnesDec 2021

  • "A fantastic place to meet with family and friends."

    All bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms similar. Fittings all excellent quality. Would not hesitate to recommend and stay again.

    Mrs FrenchOct 2021

  • "The property is excellent and well thought out."

    We loved the stay. Only thing to say is that a few more kitchen items would help eg a whisk but that’s literally it!

    Mr JonesOct 2021

    Mrs ThompsonSep 2021

  • "What a fantastic, peaceful location!"

    A great base to explore both Devon and Cornwall. High quality accommodation with extra touches that made us feel so welcome. We made good use of both the hot tub and the tennis courts. I wouldn’t hesitate in booking this cottage again.

  • "Lovely accommodation, provided an excellent base for families across the country to come and spend some time together."

    The only negative was that the hoover in the home could do with an upgrade. It was spotless when we arrived, but we tried to hoover the dog hair throughout the week which proved difficult as the hoover power was poor.

    The only negative was that the hoover in the home could do with an upgrade. It was spotless when we arrived, but we tried to hoover the dog hair throughout the week which proved difficult as the hoover power was poor. All bedrooms/bathrooms were lovely and the upstairs space definitely the star of the show. Garden was also a welcome addition for the 2 dogs including a inquisitive corgi who managed to dart into the next field a few times and had a lovely adventure. Very close to Tavistock town and less than a ten minute drive to large supermarkets. Was a lovely space and would and would not hesitate to return.

  • "This is a particularly good place for four couples as all bedrooms ensure and identical"

The property

The Granary is a wonderful barn conversion surrounded by a patchwork of green and brown fields, between the Dartmoor National Park and the Tamar Valley AONB.

It is just four miles away from the market town of Tavistock, playing host to a diverse range of shops and places to eat and entertain you.

This reverse-level accommodation makes the most of the countryside views encompassing the exterior, with a lovely garden at the back, ideal for families and large groups.

The open-plan living room showcases a stunning high-vaulted ceiling and Velux windows bringing in the natural light overhead.

There is lots of comfy seating and bright splashes of colour each way you turn.

The kitchen boasts a contemporary design, with elegant wall cabinets, a breakfast bar and under cupboard lighting.

Next door, the dining table sits proudly in the centre of the room, waiting to serve the delicious family meal.

Down the staircase you will find the bedrooms, along with a utility hosting a washing machine and a WC / cloakroom.

Three small steps take you up into the first bedroom, which occupies a super-king size bed and a travel cot for those travelling with a little one.

There is even a highchair in the dining room and a stairgate to keep them secure.

The rest of the bedrooms mirror this layout with a super king-size bed and they each come with a beautiful en-suite bathroom.

Choose to soak in the bath tub after a long walk or refresh under the shower before breakfast.

You can even take advantage of the lavish hot tub outside on the patio.

Enjoy a peaceful, countryside soak with a refreshing glass of wine waiting for you when you brave getting out.

Those feeling energetic can play a game of tennis on the owner's tennis court close by and there is even a selection of games for the kids.

Beyond the tennis court is a large grassy area leading down to the stream that you are welcome to explore.

There are some wonderful walking routes on Dartmoor, with wild, open moorland and an ever-changing landscape.

You can horse ride, cycle, fish and even hire a canoe on the River Dart.

Visit the National Trust's Lydford Gorge and enjoy a woodland trail with the whole family; there are many photo opportunities to be had at the beautiful Whitelady Waterfall.

Further afield is Plymouth, the Eden Project and the beaches of Devon and North Cornwall.

A quality break for large groups, families and friends, in a picturesque location.
