Situated on the outskirts of the charming town of Modbury, Old Traine Cottage makes up part of the 14th Century tithe barn for Modbury Church with the adjacent larger Old Traine Barn, both of which have been converted to excellent standards. Within the mellow ancient walls the light, spacious living areas have large windows that overlook the low walled gardens with meadows and hills beyond. The beautifully finished kitchens and bathrooms, fine oak and slate floors, slate window sills, gothic style wall lamps and bedsteads and handsome comfortable furniture combine to make these exceptional properties. With its dignified terraced houses and enticing old fashioned shop windows Modbury has timeless character. This little town is a hive of activity and is readily accessible to wonderful beaches at Wonwell, Mothecombe and Bigbury, and only half an hour from Dartmoor or the historic city of Plymouth. Garden furniture and barbecues are supplied. The barns are located at the end of a quiet unmade road.

Good - very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, great garden with good views over town Not so good - no WiFi despite the cottage description indicating it was available Cleanliness of the property on arrival could have been better. E.g. fridge grubby, dog hairs in and around sofa.
Stayed here a few time but needs a good clean on the ceiling beams, light bulbs need replacing, and definitely in need of a new couch.
VERY NICE STAY IN A BEAUTIFUL PART OF DEVON.
We loved our stay as always and despite shower problems will be booking again next year and for the first time probably in the summer. Lovely location and when we needed her, sally was very efficient and helped out with the shower, although it was still a little temperamental so might need another investigation!!! Thank you once again - fifth year now and will be back ????
Really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back for a third time.
All perfect, slight problem with TV but Sally arrived with help within the hour on a Sunday and solved quickly. Fantastic service and had a wonderful cosy stay.
Lovely cosy cottage. Booked as an add on for family. Not sure I would like it if strangers in main Barn. Quite close .
It was awesum and brilliant that the dogs had there own garden we thoroughly enjoyed it.
The cottage enjoys the quietness of the countryside but the pretty village of Modbury is easily accessible on foot, with good amenities. The cottage is very comfortable and has a good sized secure garden if you are taking a four legged friend along with you. The location of it enables you to easily visit many parts of Devon.
The cottage was a lovely base with good views from the garden. Comfy sofas, bed and the power of the shower was suburb. Almost everything was available in the property. The last two years we have stayed in cottages we received wine and a cream tea on our arrival. A very nice touch! The village is very interesting and the food at the White Hart was great.
Great location, lovely cottage, nice and clean, handy for the village, lovely and quiet.
Very much enjoyed our stay, a lovely peaceful location but close to shops and pubs. Fridge not very user friendly - when it is time to renew then a model with better layout could be chosen. Some weighing scales would have been useful.
Location - PERFECT! It was quiet however, we had several bars/restaurants on the High St if we wanted to go out. Acceptable distance from supermarkets / beaches etc. Furnishings and Equipment - Excellent! Couldn't believe how well equipped the kitchen was! It had everything i needed even for preparing a Christmas feast! Christmas trees and a welcome gift were such a lovely touch. Appliances for cleaning up (hoover / mop etc) were all in great condition. Cleanliness - Superb! Also, having lots of cleaning materials for us to tidy as we went was also great.....especially as we had the dog. cleaning up was easy. Having the back entrance onto the secure garden was fab....it was so easy to keep the dog happy.
Yes - really lovely and well equipped barn-conversion. I have been coming to Modbury for over 30 years and lived there briefly three years ago so also know the area really well.
We enjoyed our stay very much.
Excellent location for lots of beaches plus only short walk into town for great pub. Modbury is a lovely classic market town and very untouched. Cottage had lovely garden with views over fields of sheep/lambs. Great house for dog lovers as house and garden pretty dog proof!
Third year at Old Traine Cottage and as ever we have had a wonderful time. The standard of accommodation is excellent and suits us beautifully and the area is just gorgeous. Thank you once again and we will definitely be back next year to enjoy the area again.
We enjoyed our stay immensely
Such a lovely place. Lovely area too I really enjoyed my holiday here. I would definitely return again. I would thoroughly recommend.
Old Traine Cottage is in a beautiful location up a quiet, no through, country lane. Modbury is a pretty village with everything you need as a base and very friendly locals. Lots of lanes to explore with the dog, small playgrounds for the children. Within easy reach of lovely beaches at Bigbury-on-Sea, Thurleston Sands, Hope Cove and also the bigger city of Plymouth (excellent Aquarium). This is the second time we have stayed at the cottage with our young children and dog and we have thoroughly enjoyed our vacations there.
Suggest supply of soft furnishing for outside use. We also suggest that previous clients should leave the BBQ clean for next visitors.
Excellent, beautiful property. We were thrilled with our stay. The only unresolvable problem was the bedrooms were abit small. More storage would help in the bedrooms.
