    Just relaxed as we didn’t feel the need to sightsee. Spent a lot of time watching the birds on the feeders in the garden, walking around the lake and watching the otter videos that Mike posted. Would love to revisit at some point, thanks for the 5* break, it was perfect.

    We came in a very wet November but even the rain didn't spoil our break. Wonderful hosts, super friendly who go out of their way to ensure your stay is perfect. Wildlife cameras are a fantastic (and addictive!) addition. Pub down the road very welcoming and dog friendly and lovely food. We really didn't want to leave and look forward to a return visit hopefully next year.

    Langdale barn is beautifully furnished and in a gorgeous village with a lovely enclosed garden, ideal for our dog. The footpath leading from the garden to the beautiful lakeside walk was a huge bonus. We loved the comfy sofas, the supremely comfortable bed, the fantastic shower and everything else in between. All the little extras provided by the wonderful hosts, Mike and Julie, were very much appreciated. From the delicious cream tea on arrival, to the bath robes and toiletries. We had a wonderful walking holiday, so much beautiful countryside to explore in the area. We ate at the fantastic New Inn, a few minutes walk, 6 nights out of the 7. A massive plus to have this gorgeous pub on the doorstep! Mike very kindly refilled the number of bird feeders in the garden part way through the week, the variety of garden birds we saw was amazing. We could have sat for hours just watching them! Also loved the wildlife cameras - another lovely touch. We loved it so much we booked for next year before leaving and can’t wait to go back.

    Perfectly located in mid devon for accessing the north or south, Torquay and Clovelly were both only an hour's drive. We tried several local restaurants, from the excellent New Inn (twice) a short walk away in the village to the Countryman for a Sunday roast and the Bearslake Inn for character and great food. A small problem with the shower was dealt with immediately, contact numbers were provided so any issues could be addressed quickly. Relaxing in the cottage or walking down to the lake was lovely, unfortuantely the poor weather meant it was too cold or wet for breakfast on the patio, but the view of the garden and hills through the full height windows made up for it.

The property

Set on a quiet lane, next door to the owner's home, and surrounded by rolling green countryside, is this immaculate, detached barn conversion, Langdale Barn.

Situated in the village of Sampford Courtenay, close to Okehampton, Langdale Barn is a spacious and contemporary property, suited to a couple, small family or group wanting to explore the Dartmoor National Park, as well as being within easy reach of North Devon's heritage coastline.

Parking is available on the driveway at the side of the property, and you can enter through the patio door into the bright, contemporary open-plan living room.

The kitchen has sleek cream units, wooden worktops and a range of handy appliances, including a fridge/freezer, cooker and dishwasher, as well as ample preparation and storage space to cook up delicious meals that can be enjoyed together at the dining table, before moving into the sitting room to relax on the sofa, firing up the woodburner and enjoying one of the provided board games, books or watching a film on the TV, while admiring the unique features of the space, including a large picnic basket-style table and exposed stone wall.

From here, discover the two neutrally-styled, spacious bedrooms; both are super-king-size with zip/link and can be made into twins, so are able to cater for a variety of groups, as well as having wardrobes and storage space, plus their own TVs, so you can enjoy your favourite shows before you head to sleep.

The family bathroom completes the layout, with a sleek and neutral decor, offering the choice of bath and separate shower, so you can choose how to best prepare for each day.

Outside is a lovely, enclosed lawn garden with a patio and furniture, providing a wonderful place to enjoy an alfresco lunch in the sun, surrounded by quaint countryside.

There is a footpath from the garden that leads into the owner's field and down to a lake, which guests are welcome to explore.

Sampford Courtenay has a traditional thatched roof pub, serving food, about half a mile away, while a larger range of amenities can be found in Okehampton, five miles away.

Known as the gateway to the moor, the town rests on the fringes of the Dartmoor National Park, along the West Okement River, and offers Medieval castle ruins with scenic walking trails, a 19th century local history museum and a golf club.

From here, explore the national park and discover hundreds of miles of scenic walking, cycling and horse riding trails, through forests, rivers, winding valleys, wetlands and tors, you may even see grazing Dartmoor Ponies.

Head north towards the coast and discover the historic port town of Bideford, with its heritage railway centre and Big Sheep family amusement park, as well Westward Ho! with its lovely sandy beach, backed by the Northam Burrows Country Park, and from here, walkers can join the South West Coast Path in either direction to enjoy some incredible coastal scenery.

Langdale Barn is a fantastic base to return to after a day of exploring the glorious scenery Devon has to offer.

About the location


Okehampton 2.5 miles.

Midway between Sampford Courtenay, a sleepy but picturesque Devon village, and Okehampton, a thriving community known as ‘the gateway to the moor’. The whole area is a country lover’s dream. The high tors of northern Dartmoor dominate the scenery and provide a splendid backdrop to Okehampton nestling in a valley where tumbling moorland rivers join before heading to the sea. For miles around, the area is famous for its country pubs that between them provide welcome rest after a day exploring the paths, cycle ways and stunning countryside. On a clear day the view from the top of High Willhays (the highest point south of the Pennines) will take your breath away. Country pursuits and crafts are a way of life and a trip to the Dartmoor Visitor Centre and country museum in Okehampton are musts. Look also at the pretty moorland villages of Chagford, Belstone and Sticklepath to savour a way of life that’s becoming increasingly rare.
