Why Jonathan/Lesley Mannings chose Teignbridge District
Barn Owl, rated by English Country Cottages as 5 star, has been finished to a very high standard with a newly fitted kitchen and three newly fitted bathrooms. For those who enjoy the finer things in life this is the ideal option.
What makes this Cottage unique
Barn Owl offers guests a relaxing place to stay ideally located for easy access to the beautiful coastline of the South Hams as well as the rugged beauty of Dartmoor. With interesting towns such as Dartmouth and Totnes closeby and a wealth of attractions including the Dart Valley Steam Railway, Darlington Hall and a number of National Trust properties all within a short drive, this is the ideal place to stay whatever the season. There are also a great selection of local pubs and restaurants serving food to cater for all tastes and budgets and some of the closest even offer a home delivery service.

Really lovely relaxing holiday. The pool was a welcome bonus as the weather wasn’t at it’s best :-) A good base to explore the area. Would definitely recommend it.
Super family location
A great family house and with the facilities made it a great family holiday. It all worked perfectly. Thank you.
a much needed break
Excellent property, ideal set up for our needs.
Unfortunatly when we opened the door on arrival we were met with the most disgusting horrible smell that made us wretch, on investigation a bin in the kitchen had not been emptied and had maggots and something dripping. after taking it outside and having doors and windows open for half an hour we were able to go in and make a drink and unpack.
Lovely property and great facilities
Lovely spacious rooms and 3 bathrooms were great with 8 of us staying there. Kids loved the pool and games room. Quiet unspoilt area - was very relaxing.
Great open plan downstairs space and loved the pool.
Our group of two families really enjoyed our stay here. The bedrooms are all a good size and the kitchen was well equipped with everything that we needed. The kids loved the on site pool and indoor play area. The location is lovely and quiet.
Great open plan living/kitchen/ dining area - good modern bathroom and W suites - felt really homely
Was a great retreat for us and our grown up kids and our dog- our American family also loved it when they came and met up with us - even taking into account the Devonshire lanes - we had the heated pool to ourselves and used the games room- we would potentially look at staying again and have already recommended it to friends and family- fantastic thanks
