Devon - Newton Abbot

Newton Abbot is a market town and civil parish in the Teignbridge District of Devon, England on the River Teign, with a population of 23,580.

Newton Abbot holds a historic Cheese and Onion Fayre in honour of Saint Leonard; it was originally held from the 5th to the 7th of November, but is now celebrated at the beginning of September. The town grew very rapidly in the Victorian era as it was home to the South Devon Railway locomotive works. This later became a major steam engine shed and was retained to service British Railways diesel locomotives, although it closed in 1981 and is now the site of an industrial estate. The town has a racecourse nearby and has a country park, Decoy.

High Oak House is a character, terraced, 300 year old house… It contains a self-catering, bijou, second-floor apartment situated in central Ashburton – a stone’s throw away from cafes, bars, boutiques and a good range of local shops, with Dartmoor on the doorstep…

The accommodation is newly appointed, and represents a fusion of ancient and modern – with exposed beams and polished solid oak kitchen worktops, a roll top bath up on the open-plan mezzanine sleeping platform, and all the conveniences of elegant, comfortable living down below.

The apartment sleeps 4: a double bedroom, with views of the hills and church spire from the window seat, and an en-suite wet room… Upstairs there’s a double bed on the mezzanine platform. The main living space is open plan, with kitchen, diner and living-room over-lapping, enabling you to combine food and socialising in an easy, intimate atmosphere. The 3 windows and roof lights ensure a light-filled space for your relaxation and enjoyment.

Outside and up a flight of steps, a designer-built garden overlooks the valley opposite, and provides a sun-trap in the afternoons for lazy barbecues…

Sophie Conran crockery, Egyptian cotton sheets and complimentary artisan coffee, loose-leaf tea and chocolate truffles complete the indulgent ‘holiday’ mood.

Long Barn Holiday Cottages

Tel: 01803 875044 / 07946 378137

 4 Self catering family friendly cottages nestled in beautiful south Devon.

Long Barn Cottages were developed in 1997 by converting four traditional stone farm buildings into the very best luxury holiday accommodation. Each cottage has been carefully converted to ensure maximum comfort whilst retaining many original features such as exposed beams and stripped antique pine / flagstone floors.

Each cottage has its own private garden or terrace and all four cottages share the use of a superb indoor heated swimming pool and games area. There are four acres of grounds, including a large orchard with adventure play facilities for young children with a trampoline, trikes, swings and space for football, cricket or even a picnic.

This small but prestigious holiday cottage development is located in the sleepy rural hamlet of North Whilborough just three miles from Torquay and close to Dartmoor and the superb beaches of the South Hams. The cottages offer a paradise to walkers and nature lovers or families seeking a peaceful holiday retreat in South Devon.

Long Barn our “large family or friends” cottage sleeps 13, Hameldown sleeps 8, Huccaby sleeps 6 and Honeybag our “romantic “cottage sleeps 2, all cottages will take additional cots.

The nearest shops are one and a half miles away and the nearest pub just half a mile. Golf is available within two miles and there is horse riding on Dartmoor.
