Property Details

This lovely, roomy Devon cottage sits peacefully on the edge of the pretty little Dartmoor village of Manaton with its traditional village green, church and playground, next door to an old mill house where you can still see the water wheel. The cottage has been carefully converted from an ancient stone barn and is now beautifully lit, heated and made comfortable, with a wonderful upstairs open-plan space made light and airy by picture windows at either end. You can relax in the comfy seating area and prepare delicious meals in the big well-stocked kitchen area to enjoy in the dining space. Down the stairs are the two attractive bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. The natural garden matches the beauty of the rural surroundings, with its granite boulders, oak trees, lawn, flowers and barbecue. For walkers and guests who appreciate tranquillity, this is a wonderful spot, with picturesque walks through woods and over moorland from your doorstep, and spectacular Dartmoor tors like Hound Tor and Bowerman’s Nose to visit. If you don't feel like cooking, there’s a pub just 400 yards from Water Barn. For more adventure, try the local riding stables and golf driving range, or venture to the sea and beaches at Teignmouth and Torbay, about 15 miles away.

Area Details


Manaton is a picturesque, quiet, moorland village across from Lustleigh and near to the Dartmoor National Park. The village is very popular with walkers and cyclists as Manaton is very close to the National park. The village's local pub, The Kestor Inn, serves traditional home-cooked food and offers stunning scenery. This is a destination perfect for those wanting a rural retreat but close to larger towns. We have a great collection of Manaton self-catering cottages from which you can enjoy the area.
