Nestling in one of England’s few remaining areas of truly unspoilt countryside, Winscott Barton Cottages are situated on a working farm, adjacent to the owners’ home, with glorious views across to Dartmoor. These three, historic, self-catering holiday cottages (refs 31257, 31258 and 31259) are an integral part of the farm giving you a unique traditional holiday experience. Winscott Barton (31257) is spacious, semi-detached and well-equipped with central heating throughout, the perfect choice for two families. Winscott Cottage (31259) adjoins the rear of the farmhouse and overlooks the farmyard and lake, and is a spacious single storey property. Winscott Bushel (31258) is detached and built on stilts, and is ideal for couples looking for peace and quiet. It was formerly used for grain storage and milling, and retains much of its original charm and character with exposed beams. All in all, these are the perfect choice for family holidays, a well-earned retreat or a memorable romantic break.
The owners’ 100-acre farmland with sheep, also has three fishing lakes suitable for family fishing with carp, tench, roach and rudd. Relax by one of the lakes, casting a line or simply contemplating the local wildlife. Try the traditional art of water divining or spend a fun afternoon clay pigeon shooting (weather permitting, by arrangement). For the children, there’s a large play area with swings, slide and ball games along with a challenging fun pitch and putt. Enjoy the delightful southerly views of the fishing lakes and fields to Dartmoor on the distant horizon. Winscott Barton Cottages are a haven for the wildlife enthusiast with badger, kingfishers, owls, rabbits and roe deer.
