About the property

Resting on the outskirts of the charming village of Lustleigh in Dartmoor, is this idyllic two-storey house, May Blossom Barn.

Enjoying an enclosed front garden with exceptional views of the Wray Valley, May Blossom Barn is the perfect family countryside escape.

Arriving at the property, you will find two off-road parking spaces, before following the gravel path to the property.

Be welcomed into the homely living room, with its beautiful exposed beams and woodburning stove inset into a granite fireplace, it is the ideal place to put your feet up and enjoy your favourite film on the TV as you relax.

Prepare delicious home-cooked meals for your guests in the stunning kitchen/diner, before settling down around the dining table to tuck in and toast to a wonderful holiday.

As the night draws to a close, you can climb the stairs where you will discover two bedrooms with glorious views of the Wray Valley, the first being a light and airy double with en-suite shower room and the second, a twin with zip/link, ensuring flexible sleeping arrangements for all parties.

After a long day of exploring the magnificent countryside, why not treat yourself to a soothing soak in the free-standing bath along with your favourite book for company.

Serve morning coffee in the garden and soak up the gorgeous views as you plan the day ahead.

Venture into the picturesque local village, where you will find traditional thatched cottages, vibrant green woodlands and narrow lanes and a pretty church.

If you don’t fancy cooking one evening, why not treat your guests to an evening meal at The Cleave Pub, serving delicious meals and local ales, or visit the delightful Primrose Tea Rooms for tasty homemade cakes and a pot of tea after hiking through the countryside.

Just a short walk out of the village centre is a steep hill, Cleave, which offers magnificent views over Lustleigh and Dartmoor at its top.

If you can tear yourself away from ‘the prettiest village in Dartmoor’, the nearby town of Moretonhampstead with plenty of activities to keep you busy, visit the Moretonhampstead Swimming Pool in the warmer months where kids and adults can swim in the 25m outdoor heated pool, visit The Miniature Pony Centre where children can meet a variety of sweet animals.

Make a stop at Bovey Tracey, where you can take a leisurely stroll through the National Trust owned Parke Estate, sample the delights at the Dartmoor Whiskey Distillery, or indulge in a game of golf at the Bovey Tracey Golf Course.
