  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Northwood Barn."

    It was warm and cosy on arrival and we had all that we needed, plus plenty of space for the two of us and our large dog to be comfortable for the week. The location is great! Peaceful, tranquil, away from it all... yet handy for local shopping and easy access to Dartmoor and its many attractions. Highly recommended!

  • "Very nice small barn conversion with everything you needed."

    Lovely welcome pack to start the holiday off. Enclosed yard was perfect for our dog, as were the walks just minutes away in the woods and down to the river for a swim. Rural location was easy to find and far enough away from the town to be very quiet and dark at night, great for star gazing. Mountain biking in the woods was also a treat and loads of trails to choose from. Would definitely stay again.

    Thankyou Paul, Amanda and family for your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

The property

Okehampton 2.8 miles.

Set just a short distance from the amenities of Okehampton, on the northern fringe of Dartmoor, is this inviting, two-bedroom cottage, Northwood Barn.

Surrounded by glorious countryside with ample off-road parking, Northwood Barn provides an ideal base for two couples or a family seeking an escape to rural Devon.

Enter through the stable door into the open-plan living space, where the head chef can take over the kitchen and rustle up something good, before gathering around the dining table to enjoy a leisurely meal.

Spend your down-time in the lounge, curling up on the sofa and browsing the Smart TV for something to watch.

Escape to the enclosed garden and relax on the patio furniture, enjoy a favourite tipple after a long day, or get the barbecue going for a grilled dinner.

When sleep calls, the upstairs plays host to two double bedrooms, one with Smart TV, served by a bathroom with choice of bath or shower over.

The market town of Okehampton is a short drive away and offers a host of supermarkets and eateries, including several traditional pubs, perfect for when you don’t fancy cooking.

Explore the ruins of Okehampton Castle, a prominent landmark and testament to the town’s medieval past, or explore several galleries and workshops that celebrate the creativity of local artists. Relax in beautiful Simmons Park in the centre of the town featuring a children's play area as well as woodland walkways and riverside paths.

The spectacular Dartmoor National Park is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts; join the Tarka Trail for unspoiled countryside and local wildlife, including the iconic Dartmoor ponies or wander along the old railway to Meldon reservoir and enjoy stunning vistas.

If it’s a day on the coast you fancy, Devon and Cornwall’s bustling resorts are a short drive away, including beautiful beaches and plenty of watersport activities, whilst the city of Exeter offers a welcome change of scenery, boasting a thriving shopping scene.

All this and more awaits at Northwood Barn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

The fabulous Roadford Reservoir offers a multitude of watersport activities and fishing opportunities.

The town also has access to fabulous walks and Simmons Park where you’ll find a children’s adventure playground.
