Property Description

"Outstanding variety...situated in beautiful rolling Devon countryside and offering easy access to the many beaches of South and East Devon and the untamed beauty of Dartmoor. With a heated indoor swimming pool and quality recreational facilities, Newhouse Barton has it all"

Whether seeking an active family holiday or a relaxing weekend to recharge the batteries, Newhouse Barton is the perfect location from which to explore the South Hams, the Dart Estuary and Dartmoor. Located midway between Totnes and Newton Abbott, this collection of sympathetically and carefully restored barns and farm cottages enjoy a superb range of on-site facilities including a Roman-style heated indoor swimming pool (no additional charge), a traffic-free and child-friendly setting with young children’s play area and a furnished games room with pool table, table tennis, table football and toys for younger guests. Nearby there is a range of quality restaurants and pubs serving an excellent range of food to suit all tastes and budgets. The surrounding area offers a beguiling mix of attractions to suit all tastes and ages. The seaside towns and villages from chic Salcombe to Torquay on the ‘English Riviera’, with its palm trees and sub-tropical plants, emanate a Mediterranean feel. Totnes is a 10-minute drive away, with a medieval castle and a thriving arts and crafts scene. Teignmouth is a traditional Victorian seaside resort with a nature reserve at Dawlish Warren, a hotspot for bird watching. Exeter has a world famous cathedral, quays and a shopping centre. For the more active, there’s surfing at Bigbury or visit Haldon Forest, with its cycle and nature trails and Go Ape! For the children, Torbay is easily reached, with Paignton Zoo and Living Coasts.
The wild beauty of Dartmoor is 20 minutes away with its abundance of wildlife and dramatic landscapes. Numerous National Trust properties are close by including Agatha Christie’s Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with bustling boat harbour, castle, contemporary art galleries and boutiques. Salcombe with its beaches, sailing and watersports is also easily accessible, as well as Blackpool Sands, Slapton and picturesque Dittisham with its annual crab catching competition. Slightly further afield, East Cornwall and the Eden Project are within an hour’s drive, and the East Devon coast is easily accessible with its unique fishing port at Beer and beaches at Sidmouth and Branscombe. Local shops 1½ miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We had a fantastic holiday and the owners of Blackbird cottage really made it a home from home. With two young children it was great to have a stairgate, travel cot and highchair available and they both loved the games cabinet. We would love to go back again. Feb 2012.
  2. A lovely cottage, very well appointed with great views over the countryside. Great for children - there was a stair gate and lots of toys, books and games, not to mention the shared swimming pool and games room. Great location with lots to do in the local area. Would love to come back. Nov 2011.
  3. Lovely cottage with everything you need on site. Very well equipped. Located really well to visit all the South west of Devon has to offer. Dartmoor, the coastline, cities in the area and all kinds of attractions for children. July 2011.
  4. Exellent It had all the items we needed. Sept 2010.
  5. Downstairs is exceedingly comfortable and the log fire was fabulous in the cold weather. March 2010.
  6. We loved the layout of the property, giving us a feeling of privacy, we got visited by wild animals every morning, from birds to foxes. Lovely fires to sit around at night (it was Winter and snowing). Our House had everything you could possibly need, to cook and bake. What a pleasure not to have to go out and buy some utensil every time you felt like cooking! Very well equipped with brochures and info about the area. Very clean and well looked after. Thank you! Dec 2009.
  7. Conveniently situated in the area, easy access in all directions to local attractions. Situated away from the main body of the site it enjoyed views over the countryside to the rear. Aug 2009.
  8. Swimming pool was fantastic and the games room was great for keeping the kiddies amused for the odd half hour before tea-time, or before going out! Very safe for children. Beautiful setting. Would return without question. Very well equipped. Great views. July 2009.
  9. The accommodation was extremely cosy with comfortable furnishings. The owner had clearly thought out what was required with regard to the facilities including the kitchen implements and the up-to-date televisions/DVD player/iPod docks. There was really nothing that had not been considered. Aug 2009.
  10. The accommodation was extremely well furnished and spacious. We were there with four children and space was not an issue. The kitchen was better stocked than my own with equipment! In addition there were games, books and good outdoor faciilites. Cannot praise highly enough! July 2008.
