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. Amazing property - even though it was raining most of the week we were there the pool and games room kept the children occupied. Woodpecker Barn was a home from home - fantastic! June 2012.
  2. Very well equipped - complete with plenty of toys, games , dvds, books and puzzles. Lovely views and very clean and comfortable. We did not want to leave. Oct 2011.
  3. The best accommodation we as a family have experienced in over twenty years of renting out holiday homes. July 2011.
  4. Clean, very well equipped, spacious, convenient. Nov 2010.
  5. Although sharing swimming pool and games room with the other properties (not that we saw much of the other people), we had our own garden which was private and own barbecue. The standard of cleanliness was excellent and the kitchen was very very well equipped. We were not sure whether to take bin bags, cling film, fire lighters for barbecue and we needn’t have bothered. Everything was already there. Aug 2010.
  6. Beautiful accommodation throughout. The best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in! July 2010.
  7. Loads of extra things in the cottage e.g. plenty of cooking utensils, cups, plates, cutlery etc. Videos if needed, books to read, toys for the children, airer, ironing board etc. Very well presented, lovely furnishings and pictures on the wall. Very homely. Sept 2009.
  8. Clean, spacious and comfortable. Access to the garden was awkward as there is no door leading directly to it. The barn is well equipped but it was necessary to spend a long time scrutinising instructions in order to get the oven and washer/dryer to work - not what you want on holiday! TVs in 2 bedrooms still didn’t work even with this. There is an excellent library of children’s videos and toys. July 2009.
  9. Excellent clean indoor swimming pool. Well kept surrounding landscape. Peaceful location, despite nearby railway. Well equipped kitchen. Good dishwasher. Good washing machine/tumbledryer. Good supply of toys/DVD’s/videos. Plenty of TV/DVD players. Good quality towels, supply of soap/loo paper. Plenty of hot water. Well kept garden. Good sized BBQ & utensils. July 2009.
  10. Clean & tidy and everything worked! Aug 2009.
  11. The on site facilities are very good, the pool and the play room kept our toddler busy! The accommodation itself is lovely and feels like the owners have taken their time to think of the little things that can really make a difference. June 2009.
  12. The Woodpecker Barn holiday home was excellent, for the children it was wonderful lots of toys, puzzles, books and videos and dvds to keep them busy. The children’s play area was great, swimming pool and games room was excellent too. Aug 2008.
  13. Lovely situation, super pool, great garden, very peaceful and quiet. Aug 2007.
