The property

Resting on a beautiful farm in the village of Poundsgate, Devon lies The Homestead, a charming single-storey barn conversion boasting character features and an open-plan living space.

Perfect for couples, solo travellers or even two friends, this delightful property offers all you need for a relaxing self-catering break, while being nestled in the Dartmoor National Park.

Stepping into the property, the compact yet well-equipped kitchen welcomes you in to whip up a tasty meal; here you will find an oil-fired range, a two-ring hob, and a microwave, along with your smaller appliances such as a kettle and toaster, providing everything you could need throughout your stay.

From here, enjoy your meals at the dining table while you plan your next adventure, before making your way to the sitting area to sink into the comfy chairs and watch TV for the evening.

As night rolls in, head to the bedroom for some well-earned rest after a busy day of exploring.

Throughout the barn you will see an abundance of characterful and original features, blended perfectly with a mix of contemporary furnishings and fixtures.

Guests will also benefit from a sleek bathroom fit with a bath, shower over, basin, WC and a toasty heated towel rail where you can prepare for the day ahead or choose to soak in the bath with a good book.

Outside, take advantage of the patio while enjoying your morning coffee, or perhaps spend your evenings in the barbecue house which the owners have kindly provided shared access to.

If you don't fancy doing the cooking while on holiday, take a trip to one of the local restaurants.

A short walk will take you to the village of Poundsgate where there is the local pub serving good food.

While staying at The Homestead, take advantage of the nearby attractions such as Dartmoor Llama Walks, where you can spend an afternoon with the llamas surrounded by serene countryside.

Enjoy a long walk around the River Dart Country Park, taking in the idyllic greenery.

The area is home to a range of historic sites, including the Hound Tor Deserted Medieval Village and Grimspound, ancient ruins resting on the moorlands.

Equine enthusiasts will be pleased to discover Shilstone Rocks Riding Centre, offering horseback tours through Dartmoor.

Further afield, scenic drives will take you to the popular seaside town of Torquay or Kingsbridge, a perfect day out for trying your hand at watersports, or even just relaxing on the beach and savouring some fish and chips before heading back to your home away from home.

The Homestead is a wonderful base for a relaxing break to Devon, any time of year.

About the location


Ashburton 6 miles; Tavistock 14 miles.

A small hamlet at the geographical heart of Devon constructed almost completely in granite and nestling among the tors and open spaces of southern Dartmoor. Spectacular countryside in all directions - if you love the countryside and walking in particular then this is the place for you. The River Dart passes close by providing a haven for trout fishermen while a little further downstream the river Dart Country Park, the Dart Valley steam railway and Buckfast Abbey at Buckfasleigh make great days out for all the family. The area is perfect for riding on the open moor with stables nearby. The old moorland town of Tavistock with its famous pannier market is 14 miles away while the rolling hills of the beautiful South Hams with its country lanes and high hedges leading down towards the South Devon coast is a must for visitors.
