Deliciously quirky Dartmoor barn retreat - star gaze from the antique French bed. Friends can stay too - in the beautiful yurts!

Follow the winding road, past Connemara ponies and rare-breed sheep, to a farm that’s been here for centuries. Julia’s natural warmth, and the Dartmoor views, will soothe ruffled souls. At the top of the granary’s exterior steps is your room: white walls and wood floor, curvaceous French bed, basin and loo behind a screen, and sky windows for gazing at glittering stars. And... a shower house shared with two yurts, a beautiful bath in a tent, and your own garden (with firepit) across the yard. In the communal Loft: a fridge, kettle and toaster, comfy armchairs, and church pews and trestle tables for wholesome breakfasts and suppers.

Julia Martin:

  • National Trust Lydford Gorge - amble through the spectacular gorge in the beautiful village of Lydford on the edge of Dartmoor. See the white lady waterfall, paddle in the stream or have an ice-cream whilst soaking up the beauty of the river bank.
  • Picturesque ancient stannary town Tavistock - won best market town award with its quirky pannier market, coffee shops, independent shops and parks. Also home to The Cornish Arms voted nationally as a top gastro pub.
  • Brentor Church - climb up our nearest tor at Brentor to discover a most charming church dating back to the 12th century, always open and worth a visit for its history and the cracking panoramic views from the churchyard.
  • North Cornwall coast, take a cliff top walk at Crackington Haven, visit Boscastle and enjoy the drama of the castle at Tintagel perched high on the cliffs with crashing waves below; surf and walk the beautiful sandy beaches at Sandymouth.
  • Eden Project - Tim Smit's vision for tropical and temperate biomes in a claypit in Cornwall is a must to visit and totally inspirational for anyone interested in plants and nature.
  • Hotel Endsleigh - visit our closest hotel run by Alex Polizzi where you can enjoy a most fantastic cream tea sitting under canvas umbrellas on the hotel lawn with stunning views along the Tamar Valley across to Cornwall.
