About the property

Holiday house in Greenway, Dartmouth/Kingswear, Devon, England - Idyllic Peaceful Location in the Most Beautiful Setting

For the romantic, why not snuggle up in front of our huge log fire and read a book or watch a film. It's a perfect getaway to the country. Table tennis and pool in our games room, beaches nearby, walks from the front door, in fact once you're here you will hardly want to use the car. Dartmouth Kingswear and Dittisham via the numerous ferry boats that run up and down the river. Agatha Christies Greenway is a short walk from the house so no parking problems.

About Mr and Mrs Sayers

We live in the Barn and have been here for three years with our dogs, we travel a lot and have family on the other side of the world. For some of the year we do bed and breakfast, but when we go on our travels, rather than leave this special house and home empty we rent it out. It has a magic that has left all our guests enchanted.

We were going to move to Spain originally as we could not find anything that hit the mark, but just driving down the track to the property you immediately fall in love with everything. We have spent the last 2 years

upgrading the barn which is over four thousand square feet of living area surrounded by National Trust land and set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

You don't need a car once your here, the walks from the front door are incredible.

Mr and Mrs Sayers purchased this barn in 2007

Why Mr and Mrs Sayers chose Kingswear

The reason is magic, the pure magic of Greenway.

It is so peaceful, an oasis overlooking the river with the

steam trains below, who wouldn't want to live here.

What makes this barn unique

Its a large and homely house with lovely rooms and stunning views of the river and woods and the viaduct.

You find yourself so close to so much, yet once here - well you wont want to leave we think!

We were greeted by the host who ensured that all our requirements were met. The facilities on site were explained/demonstrated to us. The property met all our needs for the stay. Access to all the local amenities was good. Shops,supermarkets, restaurants and entertainment centers.

In all our family gathering for a birthday celebration was a great success.

Perfect for a special occasion

  • 5 of 5

This was booked as a surprise for our daughters 30th birthday. It was so special we could not have chosen better. The view from the house was unbelievable, decor and finishing touches chosen with such care and taste and the games room and hot tub an added bonus. We were met by Charlie who could not have been more helpful and friendly.

A Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Property was excellent - plenty of space for 3 generations. Immaculately presented by Charlie and Elena who were there to greet us and explain all with tips on where to visit and make the most of our week.

The local area has much to offer with National Trust properties and the icing on the cake being the ferry from Greenways Quay to Dartmouth.

Would definitely recommend this property.

fantastic weekend away

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak highly enough of this place. We were warmly greeted on arrival and given a thorough tour of the house and all it's facilities, which was considerably bigger and better than what we envisaged from the website. All rooms and facilities were finished to a very high standard.

There were nine adults in the house, and at no point did we feel on top of each other due to the two spacious living rooms, huge kitchen, games room amongst other places to chill out.

the hot tub was a very welcome addition, along with the Sky+ HD box which had both sky sports and BT Sport channels for the avid football fans in our party.

The views and surrounding area is beautiful, and walks are a must to explore the fantastic surroundings. We walked down to catch a little boat at Dittisham, across to the Ferry Boat Inn for a drink, then walked back.

an open log fire and woodburner were lit once we arrived back to warm us up again. The underfloor heating keeping feet warm also!

This place was a great way to spend my 30th birthday with friends, and I would not hesitate in booking it up to go again. Rain or shine, this house, it's facilities and the and surrounding landscape caters for all your needs, and for all ages.

The communications from the owners were superb, and always available if needed to help, but never intrusive.

A well earned 5/5 from myself and my friends. Thankyou!

New Years Stay 2013

  • 5 of 5

What a warm welcome and amazing views immediatley you enter the grounds of the property. Charlie gave a very comprehensive tour of the house so we were able to utilise all of the amazing facilities this house has to offer. With four children from 2 - 8 yrs old we were never without fun despite the heavy rain. It allowed us easy access to the steam train, crabbing at Dartmouth and a trip to Plymouth aquarium. We also very much enoyed the pool and table tennis and the Wii along with several games of hide and seek in the vast expanse of the house which we all enjoyed. Not only did the kids love the hot tub but even in the cold weather a few evenings were uplifted with a soak in the warmth of the tub adding additional fun to holiday and New Year celebrations. The two living areas give a great feeling of space and the open fires were a welcome addition in the winter weather. Great location, great house, great facilities - do visit !!
