The barn is clean and comfortable and has all the amenities anyone could possibly need. The beds were very comfortable and as they are downstairs stayed lovely and cool. We would recommend this barn to anyone who wants to be near Dartmouth and the coast but they would need to be confident drivers as the roads are quite narrow around the barn.
This is a beautiful barn conversion in a stunning location. Six adults and a baby came here for five days to attend a wedding in the area. We had plenty of space to spread out in this spacious accommodation, comfy leather sofas in front of a wide screen tv, (much appreciated by the World Cup fans!) toys, books, games, videos, we were spoilt for choice.
The bedrooms are tastefully furnished with tv ‘s in every room and the mattresses were really comfortable, family bathroom and en suite bathrooms both spotlessly clean, with quality fixtures and fittings. The dining room table seats six comfortably, as does the kitchen island unit with bar stools for breakfast. Cot, high chair and stair gate were provided for us, and we would have loved to bring the dog if we hadn’t been going to a wedding.
Outside there was a lovely private garden with barbecue and paddling pool for the baby, and we were lucky enough to have the weather to enjoy both.
There are two pubs close by, the Madruth two minutes walk, small but very friendly, and the Maltsters Arms a half hour stroll over fields and through woods for a pint by the river, or a good meal (be sure to book).
We can’t recommend Cowslip Barn highly enough, it’s probably the nicest holiday Cottage we have ever stayed in.
Lovely cottage in a charming village. Very clean and well equipped with a very thoughtful bottle of wine and cake to welcome us. The surrounding countryside is stunning and we enjoyed some wonderful walks with dogs. Visitors to the area should not miss the Dart trail.
We spent a wonderful weekend at this stylish barn conversion. The location is secluded and you will feel as if you have escaped to a haven of calm. We loved the way the barn has been decorated and it has everything you would need and probably more! It feels spacious and cosy at the same time. Bedrooms are comfortable with beautiful linen and furnishings. We slept so well there.
It was easy to visit Dartmouth and surrounding areas which are truly beautiful.
We would definitely love to return and stay longer.
Thank you so much to the owners.
Spacious and convivial living area in upper floor of converted barn. Bedrooms down below. Underfloor heating and log burning stove when weather turns! Peaceful location with walks along river estuary. Easy drives to coast in one direction and Dartmoor in the other.
A village location in easy reach of interesting places like Totnes, Dartmouth, Brixham. We didn't time for more. A must is the return river trip from Totnes to Dartmouth, relaxing, lovely scenery and a hilarious and informative commentary from a crew member. Brixham was a buzzing fishing harbour, a must here was fish and chips from the Rock Cod on the harbour.
The barn is very spacious, even with six people in it. Lovely large open plan living with every amenity. Good sizes bedrooms with very comfy beds. Very well fitted out with everything you could need. Hoping to vist again soon.
Cowslip Barn is situated in the very picturesque village of Cornworthy in Devon.
It is absolutly gorgeous and the owners and we were left wanting for nothing. It is extremely well equipped; from kitchen appliances to a music player, an X box to play, matches, head phones, torches, a BBQ.. everything! They also have a brilliant toy cupboard which my 2 year old niece loved and plenty of DVDs to watch if you fancy staying in.
On arrival there was a bottle of wine and a small cake to welcome us, as well as dog treats for our two dogs. What a lovely welcome and the gesture was very much appreciated. It made us feel at home straight away.
We were very lucky with the weather so were able to explore the local area. We reccomend Saint Milfords beach for lovely clear water and rock pooling, and Dartmouth for quaint shops and a beautiful harbour. The boat ride here was fun too.
Please see below a few pointers re the barn. Please note these are NOT complaints in anyway, just information that might be useful!
* There is no full length mirror in the barn
* The upstairs can get a little hot so bringing an electric fan may be an idea if you go in Summer
* You will need a car to get around, and a sat nav! The roads are very narrow, you have to be a fairly confident driver to navigate the country lanela
* There was no local shop to walk to - there is a supermarket a short drive away
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, and we all highly reccomend this Barn and would LOVE to return.
The owners clearly take pride in it and it noticed. Special mention to Quinton who we saw as we left - I understand he does the maintenance there. He was very friendly and asked us if everything was okay while we stayed there.
