About Tractor Barn
The Tractor Barn (5*Gold) is built upside-down with bedrooms downstairs and living area upstairs. There are three bedrooms (two doubles and one twin) and two bathrooms, the ensuite one having a bath as well as shower. Flooring is smooth grey Delabole slate in the hallway and warm carpeting in the bedrooms all with underfloor heating. A cast-iron spiral staircase connects to the living area which is open plan with a fully fitted NEFF kitchen at one end and French windows at the other which open onto a sun-deck and outside dining area. Flooring upstairs is warm oak with underfloor heating and there is a contemporary woodburner on an old millstone to provide extra warmth in winter. Two large rustic leather sofas and an armchair provide plenty of seating and the dining table with its church pew comfortably seats eight.
The garden is accessed through steps down from the kitchen and has a two tiered patio, one with a large teak dining table and the other with the HotSprings seven seater Pulse hot tub.

Sylvia was very welcoming from start to the end of stay. Booking the barn was very easy and the process was quick too. On arrival, we were very pleased with the appearance of the barn. Took a night to get use to being downstairs and the living room and kitchen was upstairs. Set up within the barn was beautiful and had excellent views from all windows. Kitchen area was well equipped from baking utensils to wine glasses for the use in the hot tub. Barn was not cold even though Storm Dennis hit us hard. Shame the weather waste bad to use the outdoor facilities. Location of the barns was near to the A30 and good driving distance to nearby towns. For local food shopping, a trip to Strawberry Fields Farm Shop is a must. We will be definitely returning back to the barns even if its two of us using Tractor barn. Thank you Sylvia for your hospitality.

We had a great holiday, Tractor Barn was excellent providing everything we needed and the surroundings were gorgeous. Such a lovely setting in a beautiful valley with the river a short walk away. We enjoyed exploring all the areas surrounding including a boat trip at Plymouth, visited Fowey, spoilt ourselves with Rick Stein’s fish and chips in Padstow, explored Dartmoor and had the best cream tea at Lustleigh’s amazing Tea Rooms. We enjoyed relaxing at Tractor Barn and the great hot tub too. Highly recommend Elephant’s Nest Pub food and the local Farm Shop and Café called Strawberry Fields. Sylvia was very welcoming and helpful and makes great cake plus we enjoyed the eggs, wine and apple juice. We fully intend to come back again when we can!!
I’ve stayed here three times with my family and each time has been wonderful. We always get a warm welcome and the barn is always clean and well-kept. We stayed in the Tractor Barn each time and I’m extremely fond of it. The rooms and beds are really comfy and the wood fire upstairs is especially nice on a cold autumnal night. It isn’t far from places of interest and it has a really nice hot tub. Dogs are also welcome (our dog loves it).
We have just spent a wonderful half-term week at Tractor Barn. We loved the place – and Missy the dog enjoyed the freedom of the fields and the early morning swim in the river. Richard and Ute are wonderful hosts and have created a lovely country holiday experience. The quality of the accommodation can’t be faulted and there are nice little touches that make the barn a ‘home from home’. We enjoyed exploring this area of Devon/Cornwall and took in a number of National Trust attractions (Lydford Gorge was amazing), some horse riding across the moor, and some good local pubs. A lovely break and huge smiles all round.
Just returned from a 4 night new year break in Tractor Barn and had a fabulous time. The barn is one of the most comfortable places we’ve stayed in…beautifully renovated and really high spec. The owners, Richard and Ute, seem to have thought of everything. Even when the weather outside was really frosty, the barn was amazingly warm and cosy with a great log burner and underfloor heating throughout. We had a really warm welcome from the owners with fresh cake and wine and they saved the day by helping with our car trouble. Add that to the amazing hot tub (our son particularly enjoyed the lights!) and stunning views and we couldn’t have asked for more. Would definitely recommend the barns and hope to return at some point.
We spent the weekend in the gorgeous Tractor Barn, which is stylish and comfortable, and beautifully kitted out. 3 lovely bedrooms downstairs, with toasty underfloor heating and lovely bathrooms. The large and light open plan upstairs makes the most of the great views across the valley. The hot tub was a big hit with the girls – the weather was glorious but chilly, so sitting outside in the hot tub was a treat! Our dog Bou enjoyed walking down to the river for a paddle. The owners were very welcoming, and the welcome pack with delicious home made lemon drizzle cake (so good it lasted all of 2 minutes…) and own-label wine was a lovely touch. A great location for walkers – lots of beautiful walks within easy reach. Thank you Richard and Ute for a lovely weekend.
We have stayed at Devon Country Barns six times over the last three years and have always been met with a warm welcome.
The barns are beautiful. We’ve stayed in both Apple House and Tractor Barn and the finish in both is excellent. They’re well kitted out with all you need for your stay.
We can’t recommend the barns highly enough and will be back again year after year!
