Overview

About the property

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 David and Karen White

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.

David and Karen White purchased this barn in 2010

Why David and Karen White chose South Hams

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.

What makes this barn unique

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.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Woodside View. The views from the large window are lovely - rolling hills, deer, birds of prey and the cows! Karen and David are very helpful with lots and suggestions for both visits and dining. As for the facilities within the apartment, what can I say - everything is of a very high spec. Woodside View is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.

Third time lucky - another fantactic stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time at Woodside View and yet again we could not fault it. The property is light and comfortable, equipped to a very high standard. The selling point for us is its tranquil position, nestled in rolling Devon countryside with only cows, birds and wildlife for the company. A real escape from it all. It is also very convenient for Dartmouth, local beaches, several National Trust properties and also the Dartmoor. There is also a decent pub in the nearby village, plus several excellent restaurants in 10 - 15 minutes' drive. Can't wait to go back soon.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Devon. The weather was lovely and Woodside View was perfect for us - very relaxing place - we felt at home straight away. The property is really well equipped and close to Dartmouth, a place we love. Recommend Greenway (Agatha Christie's holiday home) and Coleton Fishacre, both have some lovely walks. Also Start Point is a good coastal walk.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
