  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Church Barn."

    Everything you could need for a relaxing stay. We know Devon very well, but had not been to that area before. Very quiet & peaceful. All you could hear were the birds singing which was lovely. Thanks for opening up Church Barn for visitors to stay. We definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We always love hearing how much visitors have enjoyed their stay at Church Barn and do hope you will come back again soon! Property Owner

  • "Thank you for your feedback."

    Church Barn is situated in the heart of the countryside, so unfortunately there are flies in warm weather. We will make sure there is fly spray available in future. The Wifi can be affected by rain or fog as it employs a line of sight Airband system (no fibre in the countryside), but it generally works very well. We will check the other items and address them. This is a dog-friendly property that is cleaned every week to a high standard.

  • "A beautiful property which was very comfortable."

    Nice touches with prosecco and chocolates etc on arrival. It would have been nice to have a BBQ but otherwise really well kitted out. Very quiet and peaceful location.

    Thank you for your kind feedback, we hope that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the BBQ but unfortunately our insurance doesn't permit us to supply one, however guests are free to use their own portable BBQs. Property Owner

The property

North Tawton 2.4 miles.

Nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Bondleigh near North Tawton in Devon, is this fantastic detached cottage, Church Barn.

With a large carport with two covered parking spaces and off-road parking for two further cars.

Look forward to cooking up a storm in the open-plan living area with kitchen, dining and seating area, where you can whip up delicious treats as your guests uncork a bottle of wine and relax on the sofa.

Gather around the dining table to tuck-in to a delicious meal and toast to the wonderful days ahead.

Retreat to the generous sitting room, where you can curl up on the plush sofa in front of your favourite film on the TV with DVD player, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Completing the ground-floor is a cloakroom, perfect for a quick freshen up before heading out, and a handy utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the stairs where you will discover four beautifully decorated bedrooms - One super-king-size with en-suite shower room, two king-size bedrooms, one with an en suite, and a twin room, ensuring ample sleeping arrangements for all parties.

Just a short drive away is Winkleigh, where you can find a pub, grocery shops and a local butcher․ Just a little further is the historic town of Okehampton, where there is a good selection of larger supermarkets and shops, it is also home to the impressive ruins of the once remarkable Okehampton Castle.

Learn more about the local town with a stop at the Museum of Dartmoor Life, which is housed in a 19th-century mill and showcases local history exhibits and a gift shop for picking up a souvenir.

For those who have brought their clubs, a visit to the excellent Okehampton Golf Club is a must, boasting fantastic views and located on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park.
