Widecombe in the Moor, Dartmoor National Park, Devon, England
This completely re-built detached barn for two (15% discount) or four people has been lovingly handcrafted with local oak finished to the top of the range specification, professionally designed and furnished to delight the most discerning visitor to Dartmoor.The uninterrupted views from the sun terrace over surrounding pastureland towards Dartmoor Tors are breathtakingly beautiful.
This is a supremely peaceful place to stay, set just off a sleepy lane - and you may see Dartmoor Ponies passing the gate en route for the hills - yet you are within easy reach of many of South Devon's main attractions. A 5 Minute level walk takes you to the welcoming local pub, The Rugglestone Inn, which serves "real ale" and scrumptious food and the village of Widecombe-In-The- Moor, famous for its annual fair is a further 1/2 mile stroll.

I recently stayed here with my family including kids. The owners Richard and Beck's made us feel so welcome, like we were long time friends. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The oak barn has been completely renovated/rebuilt by richard, most of it bespoke and handmade. You can feel the love and passion that has gone into it. The...

Had a wonderful week at Oak Barn, even though the weather wasn't great it really didn't matter because the beauty of Dartmoor is simply breath taking !! (Even in the rain) The barn was beautifully appointed. Clean, cosy felt like home !! Loved the sauna!! Good honest food at the Rugglestone (5 min walk) and good locally brewed ale !!...

About the neighbourhood
Dartmoor - Purple, heather clad moorland, wide open landscapes, rushing rivers and obscure stone tors shape the landscape of Dartmoor. But that is just one small part of a big picture. <BR><BR>There are rolling valleys, bogs and wetland, waterfalls and well trodden paths, ancient, eery forests and lonely ruins. Sometimes ominous, challenging, extreme, sometimes welcoming, heart warming; always breathtaking, always changing, the landscape of Dartmoor is alive in every sense of the word.<BR><BR>Whether you're looking for a challenging trek across windswept moors, or just a relaxing stroll through secluded woods, you've come to the right place.<BR><BR>Dartmoor has it all.
