  • Mr Corder

    “Truly lovely house, full of period features.”

    The grounds are beautiful.

    The grounds are beautiful. Just a minor point either an extension lead or longer leads on the hairdryers so they reach the mirrors(for the ladies).

The property

The large and luxurious dwelling of Barnsley House lies in an ideal position within the centre of Teignmouth, overlooking the vast Devon coastline.

Dating back to the 18th century, this attractive Georgian home exudes character and charm together creating the ultimate base for any family or group celebration.

Rustle up hearty home-cooked meals in the fully-fitted kitchen with the help of the plethora of appliances such as a gas hob and electric oven, as well as a handy dishwasher.

Serve up at the rustic oak breakfast table, or continue through to the fabulous dining room with a grand staircase, where you can enjoy a mouth-watering feast with your loved ones as you discuss your upcoming plans for the duration of your stay.

Step out into a small courtyard and discover an external building with a utility room, ideal for cleaning off your sandy clothes following a day down by the coast.

Rest and recuperate on one of the three plush sofas within the traditional sitting room as you flick on the TV, or why not grab a book from the impressive collection available and retreat to the lovely sun room for a peaceful afternoon spent reading.

Open up the doors and head out onto the terrace, perfect for those warm summer days when you can delight in lunch alfresco or a quick dip in the solar panel heated swimming pool.

Back inside guests will also find a well-designed shower room resting on the ground floor.

Those with limited mobility will be pleased with the restful ground-floor double bedroom, while up on the first floor a further four bedrooms offer a relaxing space for guests to retire to at the end of the evening.

The master bedroom has been beautifully decorated with a striking four-poster bed, whilst also benefitting from an inviting seating area and an en-suite bathroom boasting a free-standing bath and a double walk-in shower.

The other bedrooms are made up of a double with an en-suite, a double with access to a Jack-and-Jill shower room, and last but not least a double featuring incredible views of the sea.

Enjoy stunning sea views from the two beautiful bedrooms that overlook the coastline, The Ness and the pretty hamlet of Shaldon, watching the boats and yachts coming up the river Teign never stops to amaze all that stay in Barnsley House.

The sparkling lights of Shaldon at night make having an evening drink in the first floor salon utterly enjoyable.

Spend your days down by the bustling Grand Pier, before wandering the soft shores of Teignmouth Beach and continuing along to the historical landmark of Teignmouth Lighthouse and crossing the river over to Shaldon.

Explore the manicured lawns of Shaldon Botanical Gardens before meeting the exotic residents of the Shaldon Wildlife Trust.

Bask in the sunshine on the scenic Cove Beach, or embark on a breath-taking hike along the South West Coast Path and uncover the imposing clifftop of Lovers’ Ledge.

Over in Torquay, the Torre Abbey Museum and Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves offer fun for the whole family, whilst avid historians should be sure to stop by the Victorian Market Street in Bygones and the Torquay Museum.

Travel further inland to the Dartmoor National Park, home to an abundance of awe-inspiring hiking trails such as River Dart Country Park and Wistman's Wood, as well as many enchanting landmarks all waiting to be explored.

If it's an unforgettable escape you seek, Barnsley House is the perfect choice for your next self-catering holiday to Devon.

Please note that the swimming pool is solar panel heated and will be closed from 25/09/2021 - 21/05/2022.
