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.

Separated from Old Traine Barn by an enclosed courtyard with entry through full size double wrought iron gates. Steps lead up to the front door to hallway. Upstairs to large open plan living room with superbly fitted kitchen area, built-in gas hob and oven, built-in butler’s sink, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. Circular dining table to seat 4 and L shaped leather sofa, poang chair and corner woodburner, TV DVD and video. Steps up to French doors that open to a paved patio and the garden. Downstairs are two bedrooms, one double with 4ft 6in bed and one twin with 3ft beds, both with hanging space. Adjacent is a shower room with large shower cubicle, basin and WC.

The cottage has a small patio area and fenced lawn that overlooks a farm lane and nearby farm buildings.

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.

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.

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.

July 2013

Suggest supply of soft furnishing for outside use. We also suggest that previous clients should leave the BBQ clean for next visitors.

June 2013

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.
