About Jackie Wilson

My name is Jackie and together with my husband Rob, we own Cowslip Barn. We live in Hertfordshire with our two children and two miniature schnauzers.

Jackie Wilson purchased this barn in 2016

Why Jackie Wilson chose Totnes

After a year long search for "the perfect" holiday retreat, we came across this beautiful barn, nestling in the hills of the South Hams and immediately fell in love. Having holidayed in the area numerous times we know there is nothing quite like South Devon. From the glorious beaches, to the harbour towns and beautiful country walks, we can think of no better place to relax, unwind and recharge your batteries.

What makes this barn unique

Ideally located for many different attractions; beaches, harbours, theme park, vineyard, country walks, market towns, pubs, restaurants.

Beautiful barn conversion in lovely village

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults looking for accommodation in a quiet location in Devon but near National Trust properties for days out. The barn proved to be a good choice. It was very well equipped with everything you could want and more. The little extra touches like liquid soap in the bathrooms, lovely bottle of wine, cake and tulips were very welcome. Could have done with a larger fridge but then that's because we enjoy wine and beer! The Maltsters Arms in Tuckenhay which we used 3 times was excellent - very good food, local beers and very good service. We were lucky to have such great weather during our stay and were able to eat outside one evening by the river. The pub was an easy 30mins walk or short drive and book a taxi for the return journey which the pub were happy to book for us.

We have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful property.

Lovely Barn Conversion

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing break in this lovely, comfortable, spacious and well appointed property. Sitting in beautiful countryside and close to the coast and beaches. It really was the perfect place to see in the New Year! Thanks also for the wine, cake and dog treats, a really nice extra touch. I would definitely recommend Cowslip Barn.

Perfect for family holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Loved open plan upstairs, so suitable for a family get-together. Bedrooms and bathrooms very comfortable. Good for family dog.

Suggest a bigger fridge is needed. Otherwise, kitchen was great!

Loved the peace and quiet.
