Description

This old barn has been converted to give the living areas a well apportioned feel and every convenience has been provided.

Close to Dartmoor National Park

Situated in glorious rolling countryside on a farm on the border between Devon and Cornwall, Stowford Barton Cottages are the perfect idyllic retreat where you can relax, get away from it all and recharge your batteries. Rosebank Cottage (ref W4218) is a delightful, 18th-century, converted stone barn with a bright open plan living area on the first floor opening out onto a pretty lawned garden, the ideal spot for a summer BBQ or to relax with a good book. It has retained much of its original charm with exposed wooden beams. Swallows Nest (ref W43165) is a spacious, detached barn conversion, again retaining lots of its charm and with a lovely garden and patio area to enjoy an alfresco supper or a morning coffee. Both cottages enjoy shared use of an on-site games room with pool table, table tennis, dart board and football table, so there is something to keep everyone entertained.
This is a perfect location from which to explore the beauty of both Devon and Cornwall. The award-winning Lifton Farm Shop is just 4 miles away, with its vast array of fresh farm produce, bakery, deli and highly acclaimed restaurant. There are many superb walks and cycle tracks locally, whilst the wild beauty of the Dartmoor National Park is just 7 miles. The popular resort of Bude and the breathtaking north Cornish coast lies just 20 miles away, and has an excellent range of shops, restaurants and three lovely sandy beaches. Historic Launceston, the ancient capital of Cornwall, is just 9 miles with its castle ruin, steam railway, shops, restaurants and supermarket. Nearby Roadford Lake offers coarse and trout fishing, sailing, lovely dog friendly lakeside walks, picnic areas and water sports. Golf, tennis and riding are all available locally. The famous Eden Project and Lydford Gorge (National Trust) are within easy reach, as are many other family attractions including Trethorne Leisure Park and Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre, making this an ideal holiday location for all ages. Shop and pub serving food 1½ miles.

    Wonderful cottage, run by a lovely welcoming couple. The cottage is so comfy and had everything we needed. I would recommend it to everyone. Wi-fi signal was not great downstairs, but worked fine upstairs. Perfect place to spend a week away and lots of great places to visit in the local area.

    The owners were very helpful. They always on hand. The cottage we're lots of leaflets about local places to visit which came in very handy. The Eden Project was less than a hour away.

    Swallows nest is in a really lovely setting right next to the owners property, and the owners Sue and Colin could not have been nicer or more helpful. The cottage was really warm and roomy with constant hot water and was really clean and pleasant to stay in, and with 3 bathrooms we were spoilt for choice. Wi fi was free with very good reception in a poor service area. mobile phone coverage was not so good as the farm/cottage is in a remote spot but that was no fault of the owners and a signal was available just a few steps up the farmyard. We had 2 weeks of uninterrupted holiday pleasure with local attractions and had many pleasant conversations with the owners with advice on places to visit, we also discovered that most towns and seaside resorts were within only a few miles of the cottage so getting out and about was fairly easy, which does help to keep fuel and travel costs down. All in all a very nice holiday and Colin is even considering adding a games room to the farm which makes it even more likely that we will pay another visit. we have been in many cottages and all agree that we would recommend Swallows Nest to all.

    Situated in a quiet rural area. Easy access to main roads. Very friendly owners, always willing to help if needed. Excellent for a very idyllic holiday and thoroughly recommended and would return as very comfortable cottage, everything you need and more. Dog friendly garden.
