“Great holiday rental.”
Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Lovely barn conversion in a very quiet location.
Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Lovely barn conversion in a very quiet location. Beautiful gardens on different levels and lots of places to catch the sun throughout the day. Made to feel very welcome by the owners who made sure everything was perfect for our stay. Would certainly recommend it.
“This is a really beautifully designed barn conversion.”
We loved the atmosphere here both inside and outside in the gorgeous garden. The quality of the furniture, beds and bedlinen was also excellent. We would love to be able to go back to this cottage. It was perfectly sized for the 3 of us. It would have been a bit small for 6 because the water couldn't be run in the shower if the bath was running, so only one of those rooms could be used at any one time. But it was absolutely lovely both inside and out and we would really hope to see it again in the sunshine as we had a lot of rain when staying last week. We therefore thoroughly enjoyed their DVD and book collection, although the TV is rather old fashioned. The WiFi is slow and mobiles don't work at all, but a landline is provided for local calls which is really kind of the owners, who are very nice, relaxed people.
“Our family holiday at waysideford barn was fantastic the barn itself was beautiful from the lovely gardens and terraces to the comfortable interior the surrounding area offered lots of great walks and the beaches nearby gave us some lovely days out a great time was had by all.”
“The cottage is beautiful, but is a few miles down narrow Devon country lanes.”
Drive slowly and expect to find yourself reversing out the way of a tractor at least once a day.
“We have been renting cottages from Helpful Holidays for many years all were great, some brilliant, but Waysideford Barn was exceptional.”
We take our Devon holiday the same week every year so that we can visit the Contemporary Craft Festival.
This detached peaceful cottage is situated on a little country lane about three miles from the Dartmoor town of Ashburton.
With an upside down layout, the cottage has been beautifully converted from a split-level barn.
You enter the cottage through big glass doors into a hall, off which are the three smart bedrooms, one en suite, with polished slate floors, plus a bathroom.
Stairs lead up into a lofty open plan living space where you can relax in the seating area at one end, or cross the gallery with stylish glass balustrades to the kitchen area with its granite worktops and dining space.
For enjoying the Devon sun, head outside to your pretty enclosed garden with little lawn and terrace where you can enjoy relaxing barbecues, or wind up steps to a higher terrace, a lovely sun trap for catching some rays or morning coffee.
Around the cottage, you are welcome to wander the three acres of fields and woods with a stream.
In nearby Ashburton you will enjoy browsing fascinating little shops including antiques to take home or dining out at pubs and restaurants, or maybe even book a place at the excellent cookery school.
There are lots of scenic spots to explore, like the moorland river at Dartmeet, Buckfast Abbey, beaches at Torbay and historic towns and villages like Totnes, Widecombe in the Moor, Buckland and Manaton, as well as the open spaces of Dartmoor of course.
Waysideford Barn is a tranquil scenic place with lots to discover on the doorstep.

About the location
Newton Abbot 8 miles; Torquay 17 miles; Plymouth 25 miles
The ancient Stannary town of Ashburton lies on the southern slopes of Dartmoor and is an ideal spot from which to explore the rugged high moors to the North and a beautiful coastline to the South. The scenery in this area of South Devon is glorious in all weathers and offers visitors opportunities for walking, pony trekking, canoeing, fishing and lazing on the beach. Ashburton has some interesting artisan shops and with its interesting history and museum, has built a reputation for its high standard of antiques and fine collectables outlets. It also has lovely tea rooms, a wine bar and a fantastic food deli providing fresh fish and olives. In the surrounding area, Dartmoor has many picturesque villages and hamlets with old thatched cottages and ancient churches, surrounded by a patchwork of fields and woodland. Lustleigh, North Bovey, Chagford and Widecombe- in- the- Moor are fine examples. The attractive seaside town of Teignmouth is a half hour drive and the popular Blackpool Sands, although a little further down the coast, is one of South Devon's most beautiful natural treasures. An award-winning privately managed 'Blue Flag' family beach with turquoise blue sea giving it an almost Mediterranean feel. So whether it is moor or coast that you’re seeking for your getaway, Ashburton is a really central town from which to be based.
