I have been here a couple of times and it is somewhere that offers peace, tranquillity and great views.

The owners have gone to great trouble and expense to create a high standard of comfort.

The barn is well named - we had swallows flying in and out of the living area at one point! The are splendid views of the high moor from all rooms in the house, a large garden to wander around, and not far from a village with a friendly pub.

This is a place to get away from busy lives.

“Relax, refresh and revive”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Dartmoor, a place of mist, mystery, water and sun. Swallow Barn a place of warmth, space, beautiful views, birds and other wildlife. We had a fabulous week there admiring the countryside and enjoying the peace and quiet. The cottage is wonderfully spacious, well laid out and equipped. We were particularly delighted with the wildlife friendly and eco touches - this is the first cottage we've rented which had onsite composting, such a good idea. There are great walks directly from the cottage, we very much enjoyed a round trip hike that took in the Bearslake Inn, an excellent place for Sunday lunch and the easy walk to Lydford Gorge of course another beautiful spot. Swallow Barn is also well situated as a base to explore the wonders of Dartmoor. Would thoroughly recommend a stay at this lovely place.
