White Dove Barn is an exceptional property, presented to a high standard and situated in a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Situated within a SSSI, this detached holiday barn is situated within the glorious coastline of the South Hams, close to Wembury Bay marine conservation area. This beautifully presented and spacious Grade II listed barn dates back to the 17th century. Close to the owner’s home, it has been carefully restored to a very high standard benefiting from all modern conveniencies. Guests can access the first floor by an oak staircase, or a spiral staircase. It was once an integral part of Langdon Barton - the 300-acre working farm which has been in the same family for 110 years and still in use. A 15-minute walk over fields leads to Wembury beach offering rock pools, a National Trust café and bathing. Here you will also find the South Devon Coastal Footpath, with stunning sea views of Mewstone Island and across Plymouth Sound to the Cornish coastline, and on a clear day in the distance you can see the Eddystone Lighthouse - 13 miles off shore. St Werburgh’s Church, standing on the headland above Wembury Beach, is in the most stunning location. From here you can follow the coastal footpath and catch the water taxi to Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo. Mount Batten for water sports and yachting is just 5 minutes away. Langdon Barton can also offer secure boat parking. The city of Plymouth is just 7 miles away, and in recent years has gone through a face lift with its new shopping mall and regenerated waterfront areas. The Barbican at night is bustling with nightlife, bars, bistros, restaurants and shops. Dartmoor National Park is 15 miles. Eden Project is 11/4 hour’s drive. Golf 4 miles. Shop/PO 2 miles. Pub 500 yards.

    Beautiful Place to stay, great for dog walking. The family enjoyed the peace, quiet and the privacy of the owners.

    We stayed at White Dove Barn beause we were attending a family wedding locally. We loved the barn - it is spacious and comfortable, with a very good range of equipment. For a short break it is quite expensive, but we felt it was worth it to be so close to the event. There is very little to criticise except for some sinks and showers being rather slow to drain, but that may be beyond the owners' control. Some bathrooms could be improved by having more towel rails, or shelving for toiletries, but these are minor observations. The owners were very friendly and approachable and immediately responded to our small request for dish-washing tablets. Thank you.

    Really pleased with it overall, John was helpful but not intrusive. Problem with boiler was sorted same day so can't fault that. Would recommend it highly to anyone wanting to stay in a great place.

    Large property, great location and full equipments needed. Big thanks to the host for giving us his working farm tour and showing the good places to eat nearby. My two daughters really enjoy the lessons at Wembury Bay horse riding school near the house. Hope to stay longer next time.
