Barn in Blackawton Nr. Dartmouth, South Devon, England - Woodside View Stands High On The Side Of A Classically Beautiful South Devon Valley
The overall appearance of Woodside View is similar to a barn conversion with the lower walls in natural stone, upper areas clad in cedar wood and the roof is in local slate. The design is intended to blend in with the surrounding woodland and countryside. The large feature apex window affords superb open views of the woods and skyline where the sun rises. Ideally situated with Dartmouth 4 miles (10mins drive) and the other principle towns of Totnes, Kingsbridge and Salcombe within easy reach.

About the Owner
We moved down to the South Hams in 2010 after living in Bath for 25 years. This area was well known to us after having spent many enjoyable holidays with our family in the past.
We are now semi retired and are fully integrated into the local community.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was absolute perfection. Quaint, relaxing and beautiful accommodation ideal for a couple. Stunning views from a huge window at the front of the barn. Owners were very pleasant and gave good tips on planning days out, made us feel very welcome and at home. We will definitely be back!
A Comfortable Haven
What a lovely week we have had based at Woodside View! It was a delight to return to the 'barn' each evening - it was so clean, quiet and comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped and we loved all the additional decor features. Our hosts were very helpful with walk suggestions (especially East Prawle) - we did them all - they were fantastic! We enjoyed good food at The George in the village and even set up our own BBQ on the terrace one evening! (With David's permission, of course!) Thank you for letting us share your tiny bit of Devon beauty.
Comfortable and peaceful
A real home from home, very comfortable, very generously equipped. Karen and David were very welcoming and friendly. An ideal getaway for a couple
Room With A View
Lovely accommodation with beautiful views and the varied wildlife. Everything in the property is of the highest standard with the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. David and Karen were most helpful and gave us lots of ideas for visits. The location is ideal for touring the South Hams of Devon which has some lovely countryside. It is also within easy reach of Dartmoor National Park and the pretty villages there. A perfect spot for a relaxing holiday, it would be hard to find a nicer holiday cottage. We hope to return next year.
Wonderful location, lovely accommodation
We just returned from a fabulous week at Woodside View - and what a view! Every day brought something new to look at; birds of all descriptions, foxes, deer and one day a fantastic double rainbow. The location is really good for both coastal towns/walks and trips to nearby Dartmoor. The accommodation itself is exactly as described and could not be faulted. The only thing it lacks, for walkers who enjoy those nice post-trek soaks, is a bath but we knew there wasn't one when we booked so can't possibly complain! There are some really good pubs & restaurants in the area (particularly the Laughing Monk in Strete and the Normandy Arms in Blackawton itself) so didn't really use the well-equipped kitchen but everything was clean and obviously well cared for. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Karen & David as they were away but they were very responsive to any questions we asked especially when we locked ourselves out! Highly recommend a visit.
Wonderful stay in a cosy apartment - great beds!
We stayed in Woodside View our the Christmas period and very much enjoyed our time in Devon. The hosts, Karen and David did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible and the accommodation itself was presented to a very high standard.
Of particular note was the extremely comfortable bed which, when combined with the peaceful surroundings, offered us some of the most restful nights sleep we have had in years.
Would definitely visit again and would recommend to friends.
From the Owner
“We wanted to be close to the main principal towns in the South Hams - Totnes, Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth. David in particular has always had a desire to be close to the sea and beaches.”

From the Owner
“Blackawton seemed the ideal choice for our move being just outside the village but within walking distance from local pub, restaurant, village shop etc. With its wonderful panaramic views and wildlife we knew Woodside seemed the perfect location.”
