About the property

Barn in Diptford, Totnes, South Devon, Devon, England - Located In South Hams Sandwiched Between The Wilds Of Dartmoor And The Beaches Of South Devon

Thorn Barn sleeps 10+ extra children in 5 bedrooms - 2 Kingsize, 2 doubles and 1 twin/superking with 4 bathrooms. We also have two travels cots and a camp bed for little ones who want to share with their parents. It's a stunning 5 star barn conversion in a rural setting but close to the historic, independent town of Totnes and a short drive from the sandy beaches and Dartmoor. Architect designed, huge kitchen, wood burners, roll top baths, slate floors, vintage wallpaper and quirky touches makes this an amazing place to have as a base for your Devon holiday.

About Shelley Palmer

Shelley and James will welcome you personally to Thorn Barn. We live in the farmhouse next door with our four children and Reggie the dog and are always on hand to help if you need us.

Shelley Palmer purchased this barn in 2012

Why Shelley Palmer chose South Hams

We love this part of Devon with it's beautiful, long ambling walks in stunning countryside, it's amazing local produce, and endless list of things to do and see. It seems like everything our family could want is on our doorstep!

We fell in love with Thorn Farm from the moment we saw it and have painstakingly converted the barn and hope our guests love it as much as us...

What makes this barn unique

We are in the process of adding chickens to the farm so the guests can benefit from some fresh eggs and the barn also has its own veg patch which guests can help themselves to (subject to weather and season!).

Lovely weekend in a gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend here with good friends which we won't forget in a hurry. There are fantastic views from the barn which is in a stunning rural setting. It's location is ideal for long country walks or great days out, like the the one we took to the idyllic clapton sands beach. The Barn is uniquely styled with a contemporary and comfortable feel and the owners welcomed us warmly with some generous gifts. We loved it, the kids loved it. Everybody happy!
