  • "Lovely cottage in a great location owners were welcoming and helpful."

    Would love to come back again.

  • "Wonderful cottage which met all expectations."

    However, the process surrounding the booking leaves a lot to be desired. Firstly I booked via the previously used and welcoming Helpful Holidays and to my surprise Sykes then took over. We are mature adults who do not wish to be lectured on the DO & DON'T's on how to leave the property. Also the strict arrival time of 17-00 hrs and departure time of 09-00 is unsatisfactory and inconvenient. None of this reflects upon the friendly hosts.

  • "This property is the best we have ever stayed at in the UK and is worthy of a 10 star rating."

    The 'cottage' was in immaculate condition and extremely well maintained and fitted out with absolutely everything you could possibly think of to make our two week stay so enjoyable. The owners are just the nicest people you could wish to meet and we were made to feel so welcome including an amazing home made cake.

    That allied with the tranquil countryside and easy access to the moor was perfect. Thanks and for the cake.

  • "This property is exceptionally well furnished and equipped."

    The location is delightful, as the property is in the owner's beautiful garden, half a mile from a road, so very quiet. The owners are helpful and pleasant but not intrusively so.

    Good location as 5 mins from coop in car and easy to Tavistock but secluded near moors and woods.

  • "Lovely interior with good facilities; everything you could need."

    Large ensuite and separate shower room. Well equipped barn conversion and friendly and helpful owners who live on site. Great outdoor space, especially if you bring your dog. A 20 acre field as part of the property for your sole use which is great for exercising your dog. Very quiet and secluded barn accessed by quite narrow, long drive, but fine if you drive slowly. Would recommend and return again if visiting the area. Lots of places to visit and countless walks both on and around Dartmoor.

  • "This is a great place to stay, really quiet although not far from main road."

    Attached to owners property but the barn is private with no sense of being intruded upon. Great bed, really comfortable and huge kitchen for a 2 person stay. The location of the barn will suit all as it virtually on Dartmoor yet close enough to towns and NT properties etc should the weather be poor. We really enjoyed a relaxing week here and walked on the moor almost every day. Would highly recommend.

  • "Absolutely splendid accommodation in a delightful part of Devon."

    Our hosts were welcoming yet left us to enjoy our own privacy. The property is furnished to a high standard with everything you would possibly need to enjoy your stay. Our Collie, Meg, was welcomed too. On arrival milk was in the fridge, tea & coffee available plus a delicious homemade fruit cake. We found this a lovely location on Dartmoor but within easy travelling to both beaches and places of interest.

The property

Just outside the small village of Dousland, on the south-western slopes of Dartmoor, is Burham Barn.

Approached via 1/3rd of a mile of private drive, this single-storey cottage converted from a former barn is peacefully located in the grounds of the owner's home.

Designed for comfort and convenience, the living space is open-plan with a lofty beamed ceiling and glazed doors to a pretty garden room.

You'll sleep the night away in the comfortable and inviting double bedroom with a king-size bed, and en suite bathroom with bathtub.

There is a second bathroom with shower.

You have your own little patio with table and chairs, and you are welcome to wander the owner's' mature gardens and meadows.

Footpaths/lanes lead to two pubs within ½ mile, on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park.

Nearby Burrator Reservoir offers a unique day out for families, nature enthusiasts and Dartmoor lovers alike, with ample walks, wildlife and history.

Impressive Buckland Abbey is just a short drive away, as are the market town of Tavistock and Plymouth - Devon's Ocean City.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
