This stylish barn conversion enjoys the rustic exterior of a traditional Dartmoor building with all the benefits of modern, light and airy interior. Puddaven Barn enjoys underfloor heating throughout with a cosy woodburning stove in the open plan living space, perfect for warming up after a winter Dartmoor walk. There is a contemporary high-quality kitchen with integral appliances, breakfast bar and the dining area enjoys superb views across the adjoining farmland. Detached and south facing the barn sits in the front of the friendly owner’s farmhouse (no other houses nearby) and enjoys a gravelled seating area (not enclosed) with glorious far-reaching country views, perfect for a spot of alfresco dining. With ample parking, Puddaven Barn is the perfect choice for those looking for a tranquil timeless spot with super walking and cycling available on the doorstep.
Chagford, just a few minutes’ drive from the barn, is one of the five Stannary towns of Dartmoor and offers plenty of amenities including cafes, shops, four pubs, tennis and even and outdoor swimming pool. Beyond Dartmoor, the shops, theatres and cinemas of Exeter are not far away. Day trips to beaches in Teignmouth or the South Hams offer a great alternative for a fun day-out.

We loved our holiday at Puddaven Barn.
Thank you for such a warm welcome and the lovely cake on arrival. Special thanks for the flask of hot water when the power went out! We survived Storm Gareth and have had everything from sun, rain, hail, sleet, and 50mph winds! Nothing unusual for Devon weather. Still, we managed to get in 3 really good Dartmoor walks as well. Definitely be back again for more cuddles with Meg!
Stayed in February 2019 - What a wonderful place this is! Our heartfelt thanks to Alan and Lisa for making our holiday so special, & Meg of course!! The week went by far too quickly! Lucky with the weather, the house and our fab hosts. Hope to return soon!
