  • “A beautiful, comfortable stay in South Devon.”

    Our cottage was well appointed and the owners have gone to great lengths to create a family oriented holiday experience.

About the property

Kingsbridge 2.6 miles.

Tucked away on the edge of farmland within the rural village of Buckland-tout-Saints, is this picture postcard oak framed property.

Just a pleasant drive away from Dartmoor National Park and the South West coast, Oak Barn offers the very best of the coast and countryside, whether travelling as a small family of four or on romantic retreat for two.

Enter into this homely dwelling and be greeted by a fabulous open-plan living space, adorned with a vaulted ceiling and characterful oak beams.

Show off your culinary talents as you take to the kitchen to prepare a hearty home-cooked meal, and uncover a plethora of handy appliances needed to help you along the way.

Serve up at the sociable dining table, before cracking open a chilled bottle of bubbly and raising a toast to precious time with loved ones.

Retire to one of the plush sofas and cosy up with loved ones as you watch movies on the Smart TV, or escape the excitement and get stuck into reading a novel of the galleried landing.

Settle down for the evening in the darling king-size bedroom, or climb the spiral staircase up to the first floor and discover a twin bedroom decorated with calming neutral hues.

Kick-start your mornings with a warm cup of coffee out in the garden, taking in the fresh countryside air as you look forward to the day's adventure.

Avid walkers will relish in a fun-filled day exploring the rugged terrains of Dartmoor National Park or hiking along the imposing clifftops of the South West Coast Path, whilst keen historians can step back in time at landmarks and attractions such as Dartmouth Castle.

Tuck into a delicious portion of fish and chips whilst wandering the shores of Salcombe North Sands, before admiring beautiful flowers and exotic plants in the National Trust owned Overbeck's.

Take in the views from Bolt Tail in Devon, or bask in the sunshine on South Milton Sands, now owned by the National Trust.

See exotic wildlife and ride thrilling rollercoaster at Woodlands Family Theme Park, or experience an incredible day out with the South Hams SUP WALK Adventures.

About the location


Salcombe 5 miles; Bantham 5 miles; Dartmouth 12 miles; Totnes 13 miles; Plymouth 20 miles.

The busy little town of Kingsbridge lies at the head of a marine estuary in the attractive South Hams area of South Devon. Kingsbridge is home to a range of lovely independent shops and coffee shops, as well as a local cinema and an award-winning pub. During the summer season there are river excursions to Salcombe to see the abundant wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast. Visitors can take a walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off Fore Street or visit the Shambles in Totnes, an Elizabethan market arcade. Around the South Hams area there are picturesque ports, such as Dartmouth and Salcombe, together with sandy beaches at Blackpool Sands near Stoke Fleming and the two sandy beaches at Thurlestone. There are a host of small attractive villages in South Hams offering interesting pubs, local farm produce shops and pretty rows of cottages, plus further afield the waterfront city of Plymouth is a vibrant centre housing the National Marine Aquarium, historic Barbican Quay and plenty of night life, including theatres, restaurants and bars. Kingsbridge can be easily reached by train to Totnes and then a local bus service which will take you to Kingsbridge town centre.
