  • "We had a fabulous week at Maristow Barton in July."

    The house is well presented and spacious, and the games room was great to have. The location is lovely, with the river just a short walk down the hill, where the water was perfect for paddle boarding, canoeing etc. Would recommend.

  • "Maristow Barton is a very comfortable and spacious house that is ideal for groups going on holiday together."

    With our 12-strong trip the adults occupied the 4 bedrooms on the first floor and the kids the rooms on the level above. That division worked well. The house's location is excellent: not far from both the coast and Plymouth but also in an area of great beauty, with a pine forest, river and the Lopwell Dam just down the road. We felt we had the best of all worlds, with the calm of our rural tranquility, ease of 45 to 60-minute drives to coastal villages and beaches and quick access to Dartmoor. I would strongly recommend booking Maristow Barton.

  • "This is a wonderful property, comfortable, spacious, well equipped and stylish and perfect for a large group."

    It is in a beautiful, though very away-from-it-all location, which was exactly what we wanted but the hilly, narrow lanes may not suit everyone. The host was very pleasant and helpful and quick to respond if we contacted with a query and offered lots of useful information on the local area and facilities. We loved our break in this lovely part of Devon and would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a bit of tranquility.

  • "The description of the house was misleading - it implied there is a jetty adjoining the house, and there wasn’t."

    We brought boats specifically. The kitchen was clearly set up to cater for large groups. It wasn’t a comfortable communal space - one chair, nowhere to sit while others were cooking. There was an underlying level of dirt in the kitchen. Having said that, the beds were very comfortable.

  • "One of the best large houses that we have booked over the last 22 years."

    The quality of the interior, the furniture and the furnishings was all very good indeed. The location is great as well, within the Tamar Valley AONB, adjacent to Dartmoor and close to Plymouth. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

  • "The house met expectations and was lovely."

    Description of outside space was a little misleading and the garden furniture shown in the pictures didn’t seem to exist. This didn’t matter greatly to us and did not spoil our stay but worth noting.

    The Owners are delighted that you had an enjoyable stay at Maristow Barton. The previous guests to yourselves moved the garden furniture to the front garden. Property Owner

    We can also recommend the pub nearby called "Who'd Have Thought It" which is a cosy country pub that serves exceptional food.

  • "The house on the whole was faboulous, very comfortable and had everything we could want generally."

    It's in a beautiful location and we all arrived without any problems. It would have been helpful with instructions for cookers how to use as this took us some time to work out. Also helpful would be a information folder with everything in one place for quick reference. Although it did not detract from the quality of our stay the games room was not as advertised. If people were staying with younger children this may have been very disappointing if they were relying on this to keep children entertained.

    It's an absolutely lovely place, we couldn't have a better place to stay, spacious, clean, secluded, beautiful nature around, shops a few miles away and an amazing kind and generousness host! thank you Jonathan.

  • "Really beautiful area."

    House was lovely but the only thing we were disappointed with was the games room - we couldn’t play darts as they were broken and bent and couldn’t play pool as the cues didn’t have any tips. Apart from that the stay was perfect. The Dartmoor Inn did a superb meal for us on one of the days so the recommendation to use them was excellent. Many thanks for your help.

The property

This huge detached Georgian house is situated close to the River Tavy on a 6,000 acre estate 1½ miles from Milton Combe.

With contemporary style and lots of comfort, this house offers excellent accommodation for families or groups of friends.

From the big hall, head into the light and elegant sitting room with charming paintings, a cosy open fire and a big table for sociable mealtimes when you can pick your bottles out of the wine fridge.

The TV room is decorated in an atmospheric deep red, a great place to enjoy a movie after dinner.

The eight bedrooms ramble over two floors, big and bright on the first floor and smaller and more intimate on the top floor, in true Downton style.

Beside the house you can enjoy barbecues in the courtyard, whilst the children play on the lawn at the back.

There is a games room for playing table tennis.

A jetty to launch your own small boat on to the river, as well as sandy beaches to play on.

Cyclists will be delighted by the countryside and the Plym Valley cycle track, and space is provided for you to store your bikes in the barns.

You can head to the village pub for a pint, or further afield to Tavistock town or the city of Plymouth with its restaurants, shops and theatre.

For history buffs, Buckland Abbey is close to the house, and there is a choice of other National Trust houses and gardens and fishing villages within 15 miles.

Maristow Barton is a very special destination, stylish yet relaxed and in a beautiful area.
