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 !!

Also, would strongly recommend the Rock Inn near Haytor ! Foodie pub ! Superb ! (10 min drive).

And if you fancy a very special foodie experience, Bovey Castle is off the scale ! (But off the scale doesn't come cheap).

Widecombe in the moor is very well located for days out around Dartmoor.

Think you would find in very hard to beat this standard of accommodation and location.

Just returned from a wonderful trip to Dartmoor. The Oak Barn was everything we hoped for. Beautiful, warm, cosy space which was lovely to return to after what was a rather bracing week weather wise. Great views, especially from the living area window. The huge skylights let in the sunsets and the moon at night. We really enjoyed the sauna in the evening. Rugglestone Inn a short walk away for food and drink and a chat with the chickens. Easy to walk out onto the moors. I would thoroughly recommend the Oak Barn.

We found this lovely place by coincident on Tripadvios due to its special character and quickly decided to book even still having had doubts if it is suitable for our 3 very small children. It was more than suitable for them as well as for us adults! Richard and Becks with their hospitality, their warm welcome with a great cake waiting inside, the very charismatic cottage with its fabulous interior, the wonderful Dartmoor, Ponies looking into directly the cottage from the backyard - just perfect. We can recommend this place for everybody who is looking for a charming, quite, a bit lonely but very centrally located place in the middle of the unique Dartmoor with many attraction in less than 45 min by car in all directions. We will definitively return to Richard and Becks' Oack Barn. Thank you; Pascal and Caroline

“The perfect weekend away!”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was our third stay at the Oak Barn and it won't be our last. If I had the money to own a property on Dartmoor it would be this one - and I wouldn't change a thing. The owners, Richard and Becks', are the perfect hosts thinking of everything to make the stay special; a bottle of wine on arrival, fresh eggs and a superbly clean barn. Perfect for either a romantic stay or taking the kids with you it offers everything - walks, a pub only 5 minutes away, the vastness of Dartmoor, the list goes on. In the summer you can sit on the patio and enjoy the views, in the winter you can cuddle up in front of the wood burner. A real find and one everyone should experience.

“Amazing place to stay with a great welcome”
Reviewed 19 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Loved staying at Oak Barn, firstly the house itself is exactly as advertised and absolutely beautiful, gorgeous furniture and all the facilities you need. It is situated in a perfect village and area to relax and unwind - perfect for walking and the kids loved it.
Richard and Becky made us feel really welcome and looked after us throughout our stay if we needed anything at all they were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them which is really unique I think to have such great hosts, they seem to genuiney enjoy having guests and truly want you to enjoy every aspect of your holiday - We will return!!!
