The charming spirit at Twelve Penny Barn will entice love-birds looking for the perfect romantic hideaway with long countryside walks on Dartmoor, saying good morning to the friendly neighbouring cows, and lazy pub lunches providing the enviable agenda for your stay.This lovingly renovated self-catering barn is furnished in a rustic country farmhouse-style with exposed beams, stripped floors and cosy furnishings.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

The vaulted master bedroom boasts the most tempting superking-size bed, meaning getting up in the morning might prove somewhat of a challenge (all the more reason to enjoy a romantic breakfast in bed!). Fully-equipped with a plasma TV, couples can 'batten down the hatches' and enjoy old romantic black and white movies in bed, whilst the adjoining bathroom provides the perfect place to pamper with a deep tub and overhead shower. 


Set within five acres, the vast unspoiled countryside surrounding Twelve Penny Barn can be viewed in all its majesty from the sweet private garden behind the cottage, through the courtyard. The far-reaching vistas are best enjoyed in summertime with a crisp glass of the owner's home-made cider which he grows and makes right here on the farm- it doesn't get more locally-produced than that! 

For Relaxation

After a day exploring the wild and rugged Dartmoor National Park with its whispers of folklore and imposing craggy tors, what better way to unwind than snuggled up by the crackling wood burner with a glass of hearty red recounting the day's adventures? A visit to the nearby historic market town of Tavistock with its charming delicatessens, riverside cafes and duck ponds will delight those looking to experience a slice of rural England.    


There is off road parking for one car. The property is well-equipped with a washing machine and dishwasher. The property owners live across the courtyard and are on hand should you need them, but otherwise will not disturb your stay. If you'd like a real taste of Devon then ask the owners to show you around the neighbouring barns, that house their cider barrels.



Style: Rustic farmhouse-style. This converted Devonshire barn provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic break with a loved one; Twelve Penny Barn epitomises cosiness!

Eating Out

For a fine dining experience there are several renowned restaurants for a genteel afternoon tea or a decadent supper nearby. The owner's personally recommend Percy's, on the Coombeshead Estate, an award-winning country restaurant boasting one of Devon's top female chefs!
