We've just spent a wonderful week at Tithe Barn. We booked it specifically as our eldest daughter is in a wheelchair and we found the ground floor accommodation with ensuite wet room was perfect for her requirements. The quality of accommodation overall is 5 star and we really felt spoilt. Upon arrival we were greeted with freshly baked scones, jam and cream and a bottle of prosecco chilling in the fridge! The owners Stuart and Jane are very proud of their cottage and rightfully so. Everything you could possibly wish for they have thought of and more. The games room (pool table and table tennis), games and puzzles, and the outdoor space make it a perfect choice for families. It's a great base for exploring Devon - just wish we could have spent more time here.
The pictures of the Tithe barn don't really do it justice – it is much nicer, very airy and spacious, definitely a luxury 5-star cottage. The owners are extremely helpful and the barn comes supplied with all necessities and even some delicious freshly baked scones on arrival! It is a short walk into Ashburton, which is a very nice town with plenty of small independent shops to browse around. (Ella's bakery, is a definite must!)
Ashburton is a great starting point for trips into Dartmoor or the seaside.
What a perfect place to stay!
Our second stay at the Tithe Barn. This is an exceptional place to stay, with the standard first class. I can say this with confidence having stayed in self-catering accommodation in Devon for 30 years. Stuart and Jane have been superb hosts and very helpful. Everything is catered for. Lovely location for travelling, highly recommended.
Ashburton is a lovely little town on the edge of Dartmoor and is perfectly located for days out to the English Riviera towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. It's also equally easy to drive south to the beautiful towns of Dartmouth, Salcombe and Kingsbridge. The dramatic scenery of Dartmoor is on the doorstep of this beautiful barn and there are lovely walks to be had along the banks of the River Dart.
After a busy day's sightseeing it was lovely to come back and sit out in the garden and read a book or the papers with nothing to hear but birdsong.
We loved the little touches supplied by Jane and Stuart, particularly the Prosecco and scones! They are great hosts and we were made to feel very welcome on our arrival and throughout the week. We would love to go back again!
The accommodation is outstanding. Jane and Stuart went that extra mile to make us feel very welcome and even provided a lovely Devonshire cream tea, with warm scones on arrival, delicious! Ashburton, on the edge of Dartmoor is a beautiful small town with local independent shops, including Artisan bakers, deli, butchers, gift and antiques shops. We had an evening meal at The Old Library which was amazing. The barn is very spacious, well equipped, and one of the best I’ve ever been to. It was spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and I couldn’t fault it in any way. We are already discussing when we are all available for a return visit.
Outstanding accommodation. Tithe Barn is perfectly located for exploring Devon and beyond. it is well equipped, spotlessly clean and extremely spacious. Close to the village of Ashburton it is convenient for all the local shop, restaurants and pubs, without being in a busy location, which lends itself to a peaceful place to spend time in the Devon countryside. We visited in April for the first time, but definitely not the last!
