A gem hidden in an idyllic village

  • 5 of 5

The barn was everything we hoped it would be and more. It has been converted to a very high standard and has everything one would need for a home from home experience. It stands nestled in fields and the sheer peace of its surroundings made it a real sanctuary to return to after a busy day out and about. We cannot recommend this gem highly enough.

Parke Barn

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, quiet property, furnished & equipped to a high standard. It was within a 10 minute walk to the local village. The weather was good while we were there, which made a difference. The 2 horses in the adjoining field were very friendly.

Places worth visiting were Totnes, Dartmouth and Haytor (Dartmoor) especially in good weather. Pubs worth visiting were the Union Inn, Dembury, Pig & Whistle near Totnes, and the Two Mile Oak near Ipplepen.

Light, modern, comfortable, well-equipped, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The owners have clearly put a lot of thought into converting an old barn into a comfortable, attractive home. There’s a real feeling of being immersed in the countryside - lots of big windows with wide views, and the French windows opening onto the garden and paddock (3 playful and friendly horses) from the sitting room and ground floor bedroom are a real pleasure. The owners are friendly and helpful without ever being obtrusive. The village is very pretty and the community-run shop, Post Office and cafe have a good supply of all the basics and of local produce. I’d recommend Parke Barn to anyone, including those with mobility problems as the downstairs bedroom with en suite bathroom is splendid. Best to have a car though, as there are few footpaths nearby.

Stylish, modern, practical barn conversion

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very helpful, especially in view of the adverse weather conditions, ie heavy snow!

The village has a lovely feel to it, with two pubs serving foodand a very well stocked community shop.

Beautiful surroundings, and a good base for visiting National Trust properties, the coast and Dartmoor.

The barn was exceptionally comfortable and well fitted out. Very warm, considering we were staying at a very cold time, with a very effective wood burner and underfloor heating system.

Beautiful and well equipped property in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Had some fantastic trips all over Dartmoor which is only half an hour away. Pretty and remote, you can look out in the morning to see the horses grazing. And everything you could possibly need is inside this beautifully converted barn to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
