One Bedroom East Wing Apartment @ Historic Burton Hall
Burton Hall Self Catering
About Jean Trewhitt
Martin and I moved to Burton Hall in 2013 after living in Bristol for over 30 years. When we retired we wanted to move to a rural area and have a project - we have done both of those things at Burton Hall! We both like walking and have discovered lots of local walks. We enjoy feeding and watching the birds in our garden, and relish the peace and quiet of the countryside.
Jean Trewhitt purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Jean Trewhitt chose North Tawton
We were looking for a suitable property in Devon which would provide accommodation for ourselves and potential for developing holiday lets. Burton Hall offered us a unique project and scope to have 2 self catering units - the Cabin and the ground floor Apartment Burton Hall and The Cabin are in a lovely setting with stunning views across the old town to Dartmoor. Whilst enjoying a peaceful rural setting it is only 5 minutes walk down the hill to shops and local amenities in the small town of North Tawton. We enjoy the peace and quiet of the location and ease of access to local walks on our doorstep. Dartmoor and Fingle woods are only a short drive away. We enjoy visiting the market towns of Hatherleigh, Okehampton, Crediton and Tavistock.
What makes this Apartment unique
Whilst enjoying stunning views across to Dartmoor in a peaceful setting, Burton Hall is only a 5 minute walk from the small town. Cabin & Ground Floor Apartment offers scope for families or friends to rent together There are several local walks and cycle routes on our doorstep. The Tors of Dartmoor are easily accessed via Okehampton, Belstone, Chagford and Sticklepath, a short drive away. Being based in Mid Devon enables you to reach the North Devon and Cornwall coast, South Devon and the city of Exeter.

Stayed in the East wing, great character and very comfortable and well equipped.
Really enjoyed our stay in the East wing. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. Appreciated the basic provisions and cream tea was excellent.
Thanks for your positive comments. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the Apartment. We would be happy to welcome you to stay again.
Lovely apartment with two ensuites and the most incredible views!
Pleased you appreciated the Apartment and its amazing views. Thanks for your positive comments. Hope to see you again one day.
We were not disappointed with our stay at Barton Hall. We were warmly welcomed by Jean & her husband & the cream tea was the icing on the cake! The annex had gr8 views, gr8 shower, crisp white bedding & fluffy soft towels- all the things that tick my boxes. If we could want for anything more it would have been a king size bed to accommodate my hubbys 6ft stature however this isn't a criticism as we knew the bed was a standard double. The complimentary logs really made you feel welcome when using the log burner which wasn't needed to keep you warm as the central heating did its job well. Wld def stay again & recommend to others.
Many thanks for your very positive review. We do try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We are considering a larger bed, understand the needs of 6' plus people! Hope you enjoyed your cycling and your Birthday! We look forward to seeing you again one day.
Beautiful views and welcoming owners
We stayed in the East wing of Burton Hall. We arrived to a lovely cream tea set up for us. The accommodation is perfect; clean, comfortable and equipped with all necessary items. Excellent WiFi connection and fantastic local fish and chip shop. Wonderful views over Dartmoor and friendly owners happy to show us around the rest of Burton Hall which was very interesting.
Thanks for your positive comments, it was a pleasure to have you to stay in the East Wing. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated our lovely views. Good luck with your house search. Hope to see you again in the future.
Charming house with great views, very friendly and understandable hosts
Before our stay we had a friendly email exchange with the owner. She was very understandable and held the reservation despite the belated payment.
When we arrived, we were fascinated by the unique look of the house - old Norwegian architecture and carvings. We found the East Wing Apartment carefully renovated, maintaining the original charm of the rooms. You may have the chance to get invited and view some of the other rooms with wonderful ceilings and doors. The kitchen was well equipped, all appliances incl. WiFi,TV, DVD were working flawlessly, temperature and flow of the shower could be well controlled. We enjoyed great views over the village to the Dartmoor mountains either from the garden or the bedroom window, the changing light made for variety. This is an absolutely calm place with no sounds of traffic, perfect for relaxing or as starting point for hiking. Detailed OS maps covering the Dartmoor area and mid-Devon are provided. Within walking distance there is a surprisingly well sorted supermarket, a butcher and several pubs. We would again like to emphasise the friendliness of our hosts, which we tested with an early morning fire alarm and subsequent power shut down of the property. Definitely our recommendation to stay with a five star+ rating.
Thanks for such a positive and comprehensive review of the East Wing Apartment. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, it was a pleasure to meet you both. It's always good to know that our efforts to ensure guests have everything they need is appreciated. We enjoy the peace and quiet so it's good to share it! We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. We look forward to seeing you again one day.
