Description

Chaffinch accommodates four guests and with a shared games room, pool and play area – it is perfect for both adults and children!

"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.

    Lovely place but think it could do with going over with a duster to get rid of all the cobwebs, especially around the exterior of the Windows.

    It was a lovely, well equipped, cottage. Only comment is sofa by radio a little uncomfortable after a while and a downstairs toilet would be the icing on the cake

    The cottage was lovely, and had everything we needed. The pool was great, although with a toddler who wakes up at 6.30am it would have been useful to be able to use pool before 9am when it opened. As we were out most days we weren't able to make as much use of it as we would have liked. Would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to friends and family.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very comfortable although it was a little chilly downstairs. We didn't want to use the wood burner with having two small children. The swimming pool and children's play area were great. We would recommend staying at the chaffinch or on the complex itself.

    the location was just as we expected. Our holiday was spoilt when as is my wife's habit she stripped the bed on the last day and found that the duvet and mattress protector were disgusting and only fit for the tip

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We can only apologise that the duvet wasn't up to standard. We have never had any complaints regarding the duvets in the cottage, so unfortunately this has never been brought to our attention. We have been in touch with housekeeping and the duvet will be replaced as soon as possible. We are however surprised by the low score given as this contradicts your positive comments left in the guest’s comments book. We can only apologise for this oversight and assure that this will be rectified immediately.

    Chaffinch was an amazing cottage; and we were very happy with the level of detail and quality of equipment (white goods; etc) it hosted. We went during Christmas and having a Christmas tree was a nice touch as we did not have to lose out on that experience. Fireplace was excellent and we enjoyed the fireplace experience every evening. It did help to have an initial set of logs and newspaper to get the fire going on the first evening. The owner was prompt in addressing our queries and made us feel welcome.
