This delightful holiday home is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Relax and unwind in the garden, and admire the stunning views across the valley.

The Little Barn at Hartwell lies close to the village of Sydenham Damerel near the Pannier Market town of Tavistock in West Devon. Tucked away in the heart of the Tamar Valley, this area is counted as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This fabulous, detached barn conversion nestles in the heart of stunning Devon countryside on the owner’s smallholding. It is just 10 minutes’ drive from Dartmoor National Park and 5 minutes’ drive from Cornwall. Each bedroom has a Freeview TV and boasts en-suite facilities, whilst the master bedroom upstairs also benefits from a stunning window seat where you can sit and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Tamar Valley. The property is light, bright and airy on the inside, and has a door leading out from the living room to the slate patio area, where there is a large table with chairs seating six people and from where stunning views over the valley can again be admired. The garden, with its barbecue, provides a great place to relax and dine in, whilst being secluded and tranquil. The property is surrounded by wildlife, and the woods nearby are home to nesting buzzards, pheasants and rabbits. The owner’s smallholding, just along from The Little Barn, has sheep grazing as well as resident ducks and chickens which provide fresh produce each day. Footpaths are a 2-minute walk from the property and lead off in many directions allowing you to explore the countryside all around without getting the car out. A local pub is just 1 mile through country lanes and there a small village shop just a 5-minute drive away. The Little Barn at Hartwell is tucked away off the beaten track with no road noise and dark black night skies, ideal for studying the stars. This all makes for a great place to lose yourself in a world of complete relaxation and rejuvenate your batteries. It is a property perfect for families or friends to share and be able to explore the many walks or activities around.

    A lovely, well maintained barn, a true" home from home". Well equipped with everything you need. Steve & Sarah care that you have a good holiday & you have everything you need. The welcome pack is such a nice touch - fresh flowers, eggs from their own hens, wine & cornish shortbread. We will recommend the Little Barn to family & friends.

    The Little Barn is set in a quiet rural location approximately 5 miles from Tavistock. It offers clean, modern, comfortable accommodation and is perfect for a relaxing break. The owners, who live next door, were very friendly and helpful and we would highly recommend a stay at this property.

    This cottage is a real gem. A definite 5*. The cottage is very well presented and equipped. Sarah and Steve were great hosts and very friendly. They provided a lovely welcome pack and all along, ensured we enjoyed our stay. Everything had been thought of and the facilities in the cottage were of great quality and quantity. This cottage makes an ideal break for families as each bedroom has ensuite facilities and a TV. The lounge, dining, kitchen area is very well laid out and you have plenty of space. We are definitely planning a return trip.

    I have never taken the time to write a review before but staying here has made me do so... You will not find more welcoming, friendly and helpful owners, if you need them. They went above and beyond in providing support to my family(5)about everything including the best places to visit in the surrounding areas and made this stay in their exceptional 5* property very special indeed. The location is fantastic, the owners are great and the property ticks all the boxes. Time and effort has been spent here and it deserves this review. I challenge any other person staying here to not write the same...

    Beautiful place to stay and would recommend to any of my friends and family. Lovely restored barn to a very high standard. It was very comfortable for a family of 6 adults and it was nice to have a bathroom each. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Would love to visit again. Sarah and Steve where very helpful before and during our holiday.
