Set amongst the beautiful and tranquil location of the Trout Fishery just on the outskirts of the ancient stannary town of Tavistock on the edge of Dartmooor National Park, these delightful holiday properties form a cluster of barn conversions set around a courtyard. This little complex is very child friendly yet retains peace and quiet. Each property shares the facilities, including the use of the large stunning oak outdoor gazebo complete with BBQ and servery area. There is also a large purpose built play barn set in a detached oak building, an outdoor fully enclosed children’s play area with sand pit, bunny corner and grassed basketball and football area. Outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy walking and cycling will love the rugged wilderness of the Dartmoor National Park and the market town of Tavistock with its farmer’s markets and Victorian antiques market.

For the children, there is a float fishing lake and tackle can be hired. Children will love the chickens, ducks and guinea fowl roaming in the farmyard, and they can feed the hens and collect the eggs every morning, and meet our friendly pot bellied pigs, miniature donkeys or the rabbits in bunny corner. Tavistock, 1 mile, has independent shops and lots of pubs and restaurants serving good home cooked food and real ales. Horse riding and golf can also be found locally. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

With wonderful views over Dartmoor and situated within South Devon countryside, this stunning complex of barn conversions (Refs HHHX and HHHW) was once part of the Stover Estate. Converted in early 2008 in a contemporary style and equipped to a high standard, with the addition of modern day comforts, they make the perfect place for couples, families and larger parties wishing to holiday together.
They offer wonderful all year round accommodation, with each cottage boasting its own patio area, with garden furniture and barbecue. Once a working farm and an old miniature railway site, Gorse Blossom Farm has some 40 acres, where guests can wander around at their leisure and which offers a haven for wildlife, including birds of prey, badgers and the lesser horseshoe bat, which has made its home here. The indoor games room just opposite the cottages will keep children and adults entertained as well as an all weather surface tennis court.
Being close to the A38 makes this the perfect place from which to explore South Devon, Torquay (with its sandy beaches, 12 miles), Plymouth, 25 miles (to see the Hoe, the Barbican, the National Marine Aquarium which is ideal for children and adults) and the Eden Project (approximately
1½ hours drive) is a fabulous day out. Crealy Adventure Park is 20 miles. Exeter has a magnificent cathedral and quay, whilst a boat trip can be taken up the river to two stunning pubs. There are many villages to explore and stop off for a Devon cream tea. Dartmoor is on the doorstep, with its stunning scenery and heather clad rocky tors and ponies, and is a walkers’ paradise at any time of year, with Becky Falls (rocks and waterfalls) 8 miles. Paignton not only has more sandy beaches, but also a famous zoo.
Visit the South Hams, taking in Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth. Go the other direction and take in the Jurassic Coast, or visit Beer, Branscombe and Seaton to take a ride on the Seaton Tramway. There is so much to see and do that visitors will have to keep coming back year after year to take it all in. Shop 500 yards, pub ½ mile.
