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. This is our third year at this location and first staying in swift. The cottage was excellent and thoughtfully set up. Our child loved the ’den’ on the gallery. Rooms were comfortable. Everything you needed in the kitchen but a bit limited on food cupboard space, but then we didn’t intend cooking so that was fine! The back door which faced the pool was extremely convenient especially when unpacking/packing the car. Loved it would use this cottage again. July 2012.
  2. Lovely place had everything you needed, BBQ for hot weather and log burner for cold weather, great pool and games room. Very well equipped cottage even treats for our dog! In a very quiet location, so peaceful! June 2012.
  3. Very nice cottage ideal for 4 people. Dec 2011.
  4. Great property if a bit far from the beach. You have got to love driving down very narrow country lanes to get to this location. June 2011.
  5. Excellent, cosy cottage, wanted for nothing! We loved the pool and the games room, in fact we loved it all! The location is lovely, as were all the people we met locally, it’s also close to a lot of attractions, which the whole family enjoyed. Will definitely stay again. May 2011.
  6. Smashing "cottage" (conversion) with fab facilities. Also, not far (driving) from a really good pub in the Good Pub Guide. April 2011.
  7. This property was by far the best and most thoughtfully equiped cottage I have ever stayed in. The worst part about it was that I will be disappointed in the future should I book somewhere else! The location is lovely, with excellent facilities for the children and amazing views. We had a splendid week, made 100% better by the thoughtful owner supplying such things as sellotape, washing powder, two BBQs - one near the cottage and one near the childrens play area, a rough guide to devon and cornwall, the national trust guidebook, clothes drier, washing machine and dryer free of charge.... I could go on for pages. We will certainly be back. April 2011.
