Wagtail description

Newhouse Barton offers high quality, individual cottages set in the lush green pastures of South Devon, midway between Totnes and Newton Abbot. Formerly the buildings of a working farm, the cottages have been sympathetically and carefully restored. All the properties are well-equipped and have a real ’home from home’ feel to them. Facilities include a superb indoor heated swimming pool, games room, outdoor children’s play area and communal barbecue area. Enjoying peace and tranquillity, the cottages are set amidst 30 acres of private, arable farmland and benefit from beautiful views over the rolling Devon countryside. The English Riviera of Torbay and the magical golden beaches of South Devon’s coastline are nearby.

This superb, detached barn conversion, on the south coast offers excellent, self-catering accommodation. Ideally located for the beach, yet benefiting from all the features of a luxury country cottage, this family holiday cottage equipped with all the indoor facilities, cannot fail to please on all levels. A large entrance hall with galleried landing, leads to a spacious living room. Steps lead from the living room to a dining room with vaulted ceiling and table seating 10. There is a large kitchen with range cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer and two bedrooms on the ground floor. On the first floor there are two en-suite bedrooms, both enjoying views over the countryside. Outside the property is a patio area, with table and chairs seating 8 people, along with a chiminea serving as a barbeque, and patio heater for those long summer evenings.

There are many attractions nearby; a visit to Paignton Zoo is a great family day out, Greenway, the summer home of Agatha Christie near Brixham and Dartmoor, with its dramatic scenery, ponies and quaint tea rooms. Take a trip to Brixham or Torquay offering sandy beaches, theatre, Living Coasts where penguin’s wander freely, Exeter with its cathedral and canal, Crealy Adventure Park, which is a great day out for children and there are many NT properties close by.
