This is a tremendous holiday home, in every possible way. The property itself has been built and fitted out to a vry high standard, and is a real pleasure to live in, the quiet, green spaces all around are lovely, and the hosts are as welcoming as you could hope for.
Ashburton is a fabulous little town, packed with little shops and possibly the best bakery, making the best cakes fresh each morning, that I've tasted anywhere in the world. Really.
But what made this just right for us was the location, as everything is in easy reach, unlike when we've stayed right on the coast for past trips, stuck down winding roads so you end up staying at just one or two beaches. From here its still quick to the beach, but also the moors, parks, forests, towns, cities pubs and restaurants - everything is 20-30 mins drive away. But the house is so comfortable that on a sunny day you sometimes just don't feel like going anywhere.
We had been considering buying a holiday home in south Devon, as we like it so much, but now we won't bother as this looks like becoming a very regular spot for us in the coming years.
We had a wonderful stay in the Tithe Barn. Enjoyed many different activities, beach, guided walk on the moors and the Dart Park - which was great for the kids (bring a wetsuit). The barn itself was amazing, very well equipped and the hosts were super helpful. Can't wait to come again to explore this area of Devon - there is so much to do and see.
Fabulous barn in the Dartmoor national park. Exceptional standard and lovely hosts. We'll be back ;-)
Had a long family weekend in April for a wedding in Ashburton. The Tithe Barn was perfect for a family of 4-6 plus space for extra visitors for lunch or dinner. Lovely location, pond and garden. Walking distance to Ashburton restaurants and shops. Jane and Stuart (and dogs) more than kind and welcoming and we quickly felt at home. Will certainly try and return for a longer stay.
We were a party of 6 seniors who spent two weeks at the Tithe Barn, Ashburton and had a wonderful time. The accommodation was quite incredible. 3 double bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms could be made into twin bedded rooms - ideal for us. The location is so tranquil being on the outskirts of Ashburton. There were plenty of local walks albeit rather hilly. We spent Easter here and found the kitchen to be so well equipped we were able to cook a full turkey dinner. We did have a problem with the tumble dryer but it was replaced with a new one within the hour! Underfloor heating was a comfort on those chilly nights, especially in the bathrooms. Ashburton was a nice little town with plenty of local shops and restaurants. The roads away from the A38 were very narrow and interesting to drive. This location is very close to Dartmoor, and we were able to visit plenty of National Trust sites. Stuart and Jane were very attentive hosts and very easy to deal with before, during and after our stay. We would certainly recommend this unique property.
The Tithe Barn in Ashburton is easily the best appointed property we have stayed in through the many we have booked through Premier Cottages. The specification is absolute top quality and the owners have put a great deal of thought into all aspects. We are a family of five with three children (10,8,8) and we had a brilliant time. The children played either on the swings or in the mown fields of the property (often with the owners dogs who were great companions) or made use of the games rooms with a pool table and table tennis. The property is just on the border of the national park and within a couple of minutes we could be on the moor walking. It is also conveniently located close to a number of other attractions in the area with the Beach 35 mins away to the South and the same time to places like the National Trust's Lydford Gorge or Castle Drogo. The owners were very friendly and helpful even drawing us maps of local walks away from the crowds that only locals knew!
Would definitely book and again and I would highly recommend.
We booked the Tithe Barn for a family get together with our adult children now living in different parts of England and abroad. The accommodation is an amazing beautifully finished restoration with oak and thatch and space and comfort and warmth. It is very well equipped throughout and more than met our requirements. We found it easy to access Dartmoor and could walk in to Ashburton. Even in January we could sit outside (well wrapped up) and enjoy the sunshine. Now of older age we were delighted with the layout and practicality of our bathroom and our wonderfully comfortable bed. Our children were equally thrilled with The Tithe Barn. Jane and Stuart were most helpful and thoughtful hosts.
