Within Dartmoor National Park
Kirkside Barn is a detached, stone barn conversion situated in a conservation area in the little moorland village of Mary Tavy, just 3.5 miles from Tavistock. Located close to the village church, next to the owners’ home, it offers a very peaceful setting and is surrounded by countryside and moorland. Guests can enjoy shared use of the owner’s garden and make use of their washing line too, perfect for summer days. Within the Dartmoor National Park, spectacular scenery, open moorland, granite tors and rushing rivers, wooded valleys, and pretty little villages await you, whether you drive, cycle, walk or horse ride. There is something for everyone within easy reach, either on Dartmoor or further afield in Devon or Cornwall. Family attractions include Buckland Abbey, Lydford Gorge, Miniature Pony Centre, Cotehele House, Castle Drogo, Dartmoor Zoo, Eden Project, Woodlands Theme Park and Crealy Adventure Park. The wide sandy beaches on the north coast, and the coves and sandy bays on the south coast are only an hour or so away by car, as well as the bustling cities of Plymouth and Exeter for shopping and further sight seeing. There are facilities for fishing, golf, tennis, canoeing, local gliding, cycle and horse riding. The leisure pool and cinema/arts centre in the historic market town of Tavistock provides swimming, films, live performances and exhibitions.
