We have just come back from a weekend away with friends at this property. What an absolute gem. We had 2 children and our friends had 1. Its perfect for all the family, with 4 good sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Tastefully decorated with the added bonus of a log burner. The kitchen has everything you need and the owners even put some milk in the fridge and some scones with cream and jam! Yummy! It's in a great location to explore Dartmoor but very close to Tavistock. Highly recommend and we will definitely be booking this place again.

This is a real gem of a cottage. The location was perfect - on a farm smallholding (with chickens and ducks for our daughter to feed outside each morning). It's only a mile or so outside Tavistock with all its amenities but feels a world away - it's right at the end of a country lane so no passing traffic (the road is tarmac and in good condition right up to the farm entrance, only the final 100m or so is unsurfaced but still no problem for our car). The hosts provide annotated maps showing recommended local walks - it's only a minute or two from the farmstead to the open moorland from where you can walk down to the beautiful rivers Tavy and Walkham below. We were also able to ride our bikes from the cottage via a couple of country lanes direct onto the excellent Drake's Trail all the way to Plymouth.

The cottage itself also surpassed our expectations. The kitchen, lounge area, bathrooms and bedrooms were all attractive and well equipped. There's a shed at the back where bikes can be stored and there's also a games outhouse and very big trampoline.

The hosts were also great. Both before, during and after our stay Jacqui answered all our calls / messages very promptly and helpfully. She was also there to welcome us on arrival (from a suitable social distance), and the cream tea that was there to welcome us was very, very good.

All in all, a great, great week away - a real tonic in a time of Covid. Thanks Jacqui!

Had a fabulous long weekend in the heart of the Devon moors. The barn overlooks the river valley and there are some fabulous walks without the need to get in the car. Tavistock and Plymouth are in easy reach. The accommodation is first class and the cosy warmth of the woodburner was very welcome after a bracing walk. The hosts could not be more friendly and nothing seems too much trouble! We shall definitely be returning as the moors will be even more stunning in the springtime.

Have stayed here on many occasions for weekend breaks. The location is set with wonderful views over the countryside. The accommodation is very spacious and homely with very comfortable beds and furniture. The large living and dining areas provide plenty of room for everyone to spend time together. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need & everything is extremely clean. The owners go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful comfortable stay. If you are looking for clean, spacious comfortable accommodation in a beautiful location, then this is the place. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for a fabulous stay. We are a group who get together once or twice a year and we couldn't have been more welcome. The rooms are very spacious and comfy and we all slept really well. The open plan kitchen and living room is a great space to all get together, being particularly cozy and warm with the wood burner.

The property has stunning views out over the valley and in just a few minutes you can walk across the moor and down to the river, where we saw a group kayaking.

We will definitely return, because of its great location to the moors and the quaint town of Tavistock, but also because it was such a great place to be.

We stayed in wood stone Barn with adult friends. The barn is beautifully decorated, extremely well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. A lovely home away from home. The beds were very clean and comfortable. It was lovely to have toilets and bathrooms in abundance. Plenty of parking. Ducks, chickens and horses outside completed this idyllic property, and the views were simply stunning. The owners were extreme friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable about the area.

We will all book this property again, it was great value for money.

Woodstone cottage on Highertown Farm is absolutely beautiful inside and out! The rooms and beds were all spacious and each room was decorated lovely.

The kitchen has everything you need cooking and storage wise, lots of utensils, dinnerware, and even a dishwasher!

There is more than enough cupboard, cabinet, and wardrobe space throughout the cottage.

I liked that there was two living rooms, this meant if somebody did or didn't want to watch TV or play a game, you had another room to relax in.

There are 2 bathrooms, one upstairs with toilet, sink shower/

A beautiful barn conversion finished to a very high standard set in a beautiful location. Comfortably accommodated 5 adults and 2 children. Good sized rooms, equipped with everything you could possibly need for a perfect stay. The welcoming hosts left fresh eggs, homemade scones, clotted cream and jam for our arrival. The chickens and ducks which wandered freely around the grounds kept our children entertained. There was also a trampoline and swing in a nearby field which would be great for older kids. Highly recommended - it was just a shame we had to

Was in Devon for sad reasons, but booking this barn made it a little easier. The owners are very welcoming and friendly, the barn has been decorated to a very high standard and comfortably fits 8 people. It was in the perfect location for us, not too far from other family. Great views, and animals roaming round past the window. Will defiantly return.

Barn was finished to a high standard, good sized accommodation and very well equipped. The large living and dining areas provided plenty of room for all of us to spend time together without feeling the need for more space.

Would definitely recommend this to anyone. It is even suitable for wheelchair users , having a beautiful downstairs bedroom, a wet room and a gentle slope up to the main living areas.
