Description

Barn Owl has been awarded five-stars and it’s not difficult to see why – it’s exceptionally stylish and guests can enjoy many shared facilities.

"Outstanding variety...situated in beautiful rolling Devon countryside and offering easy access to the many beaches of South and East Devon and the untamed beauty of Dartmoor. With a heated indoor swimming pool and quality recreational facilities, Newhouse Barton has it all"

Whether seeking an active family holiday or a relaxing weekend to recharge the batteries, Newhouse Barton is the perfect location from which to explore the South Hams, the Dart Estuary and Dartmoor. Located midway between Totnes and Newton Abbott, this collection of sympathetically and carefully restored barns and farm cottages enjoy a superb range of on-site facilities including a Roman-style heated indoor swimming pool (no additional charge), a traffic-free and child-friendly setting with young children’s play area and a furnished games room with pool table, table tennis, table football and toys for younger guests. Nearby there is a range of quality restaurants and pubs serving an excellent range of food to suit all tastes and budgets. The surrounding area offers a beguiling mix of attractions to suit all tastes and ages. The seaside towns and villages from chic Salcombe to Torquay on the ‘English Riviera’, with its palm trees and sub-tropical plants, emanate a Mediterranean feel. Totnes is a 10-minute drive away, with a medieval castle and a thriving arts and crafts scene. Teignmouth is a traditional Victorian seaside resort with a nature reserve at Dawlish Warren, a hotspot for bird watching. Exeter has a world famous cathedral, quays and a shopping centre. For the more active, there’s surfing at Bigbury or visit Haldon Forest, with its cycle and nature trails and Go Ape! For the children, Torbay is easily reached, with Paignton Zoo and Living Coasts.
The wild beauty of Dartmoor is 20 minutes away with its abundance of wildlife and dramatic landscapes. Numerous National Trust properties are close by including Agatha Christie’s Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with bustling boat harbour, castle, contemporary art galleries and boutiques. Salcombe with its beaches, sailing and watersports is also easily accessible, as well as Blackpool Sands, Slapton and picturesque Dittisham with its annual crab catching competition. Slightly further afield, East Cornwall and the Eden Project are within an hour’s drive, and the East Devon coast is easily accessible with its unique fishing port at Beer and beaches at Sidmouth and Branscombe. Local shops 1½ miles.

    A very nice cottage but tight for 8 people to dine at the table and to sit in comfort together in the living room. The showers are electric and not very good. One packed up during our stay. Lighting in the kitchen area is very poor. Otherwise the apartment, pool, games room and play area are very nice.

    Lovely house on complex with shared pool and games room. Very quiet location at end of single track road. Woodburner made it feel very cosy and kept whole house very warm. Couple of small gripes, accommodation is for 8 but only 6 dining chairs meant 2 needed to eat meals off their laps. Showers lovely and hot in the morning but those showering late afternoon/early evening had cold showers. Overall a lovely house and would stay there again.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback and we are delighted you had such an enjoyable stay. There are in fact 8 dining chairs in the cottage but unfortunately the guests staying the week before you were only 6 in number and had put two of the chairs in one of the bedrooms. I should have also mentioned that if you had pushed the hot water boost button in the airing cupboard as mentioned in the visitors welcome pack those showering in the evening would have had lots of hot water. We do look forward to welcoming you to Barn owl on another occasion.
