  • “This is a lovely, comfortable cottage.”

    It's well equipped, attractively furnished and very clean and well maintained. The safe, enclosed garden is surrounded by beautiful views and is very pet friendly. Hosts Peter and Jackie are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The help that Peter gave us with our punctured Tyre was very much appreciated! We would thoroughly recommend Barley Meadow as a perfect holiday home.

The property

Okehampton 7 miles.

This traditional stone cottage with a hot tub is next door to the owners’ farmhouse on a non-working farm in a rural setting close to Dartmoor National Park, 7 miles from Okehampton.

Set within a quiet setting surrounded by meadows grazed by the owners’ ponies, this spacious cottage provides a countryside getaway for a family or group of friends who will enjoy horse riding, walking or cycling in this picturesque area in the heart of Devon.

With two reception rooms and a large kitchen with breakfast area, there is plenty of space for the family to spend time together and in the sitting room there is a large sofa bed, ideal for an extra couple who can utilise the ground floor cloakroom plus share the upstairs bathroom.

There is a double bedroom plus two single bedrooms, all sharing the family bathroom which has both a bath and a separate walk-in shower.

The large private garden at the side of the cottage is a perfect spot where dogs and children can play safely, and adults can enjoy the quiet peace of a rural garden whilst relaxing with a refreshing drink, unwinding in the hot tub or dining alfresco.

The local village of Bridestowe has a small shop, and there are numerous friendly pubs in this area whilst the market town of Okehampton has shops, a cinema, museum and heritage railway centre with train journeys to Meldon reservoir.

There is now a cycle route from Okehampton to Lydford following the disused length of railway and offering amazing views and pub stops en-route.

Dartmoor National Park provides fun-filled activities such as pony riding, tor bagging, letterboxing and exploring miles of rugged open space.

A fabulous, well-presented cottage in the heart of Devon where a warm welcome awaits.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 955362, together they sleep 8.

About the location

OKEHAMPTON

Exeter 23 miles.

Okehampton is a busy market town on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park and near the highest and most dramatic areas of the moor, where Yes Tor rises to a height above 2000 feet. To the north of Okehampton are some beautiful rolling Devon hills where small farming villages nestle amidst woods and fields with plenty of gently flowing rivers. The fabulous Roadford Reservoir offers a multitude of watersport activities and fishing opportunities. Okehampton has a prominent medieval castle overlooking a wooded river valley, the Museum of Dartmoor Life (where Tourist Information can be found) and Okehampton train station, which has been restored to its 1950s glory running trains along a scenic route to Meldon the highest station in southern England. The town also has spectacular views across Dartmoor, access to fabulous walks and Simmons Park where you’ll find a children’s adventure playground. This area of Devon has plenty of farm shops and country inns serving good food where visitors can spend time relaxing and unwinding amongst unspoilt countryside.
