A lovely interior with fantastic views. A great location to visit Pennywell Farm and other nearby sites. Fran is helpful and responds quickly to questions.
We chose Shuttaford barn based on it’s beautiful rural setting and tasteful decor, we were not disappointed. The barn is wonderfully thought out, with attention to detail and had everything you could need for a young family. Francesca was a great responsive host and overall we had a wonderful stay, would highly recommend.
A beautiful house. Lots of lovely touches- nice bed linen/pottery/towels/lush eco products in the bathrooms and kitchen. Very well equipped house and the games room was a huge hit with the kids. A great area with so much to do. We had some wonderful walks and wild swims within a few minutes’ drive. Fran’s booklet is full of brilliant recommendations. Highly recommended.
wonderful stay in a beautiful barn. we enjoyed the games room and lovely surroundings. kitchen well stocked with utensils, pans etc. responsive owners who sorted a minor maintenance issue quickly. barn is a lovely quirky space, comfy beds, fabulous bathroom with gorgeous bath! thanks so much for a great weeks stay!
Absolutely loved this place and would happily go back again. It was beautifully designed and very clean and we were just very happy being there. There was a lovely box of wooden toys and a shelf of books for our children to play with too which they loved. The games room is an added bonus and my husband and I made sure we found some time to use it to play games we hadn’t played in years. I just wished that we had stayed longer to be honest, it was perfect.
Francesca's place really was a beautiful house in beautiful surroundings. It was decorated in an incredibly thoughtful and nice way, with lots of very nice touches to help make us feel at home. The wine and biscuits were a treat, and the home was well equipped with everything we needed. It was great to see a proper approach to recycling, and sustainably sourced items at our disposal during the stay. The games room was very well equipped, and we found it very peaceful. Location was perfect within Dartmoor, and we would love to stay again in the future. Only thing lacking was a strong Wi-Fi connection, but it's nice to have a bit of space and distance from the rest of the world!
We only had a few days at Shuttaford Farm but wish we could have stayed longer. The barn is gorgeous, very tastefully decorated and has everything you need, and the surrounding area is just beautiful - so peaceful and calm. The welcome gifts from Francesca were delicious and very appreciated and our children loved exploring the toys provided, the garden & the games room.
Fran, we had a wonderful time at Shuttaford Barn. It was just immaculately clean and had everything you could possibly want. The twin room was ideal for our kids and the master room with en-suite was ideal for the grandparents. I was able to cook meals in the kitchen with ease. It was so close to the beautiful Dartmoor and all it has to offer, but also private and away from the tourists. We enjoyed walking to Holne, where we had the most incredible roast lunch at The Church House Inn. Ashburton had everything we needed food-wise. The kids particularly loved an evening walk up the hill to chat to the sheep in one of the fields! The barn is styled beautifully and had space for all 6 of us to do our own thing, be it watching TV, sitting in the sunshine, reading a book, playing ping pong or darts. Thank you, Fran! A stunning oasis on the edge of the moor. Highly recommended.
We have only come back from our stay at Shuttaford Barn and we already miss it! Fran has done an outstanding job on the barn, feeling modern yet homely. There were three of us in total and never felt on top of each other. We had the use of the kitchen, upstairs lounge, decking as well as the games room - if you love ping pong you’re in for a treat! We made use of the local area with Canonteign Falls as well as made a visit to Salcombe (roughly 1 hr away). If you turn out left of the barn, go through Holne and take a left you’ll be in the midst of the national park. There is plenty to do! Honestly we had such a lovely time and couldn’t recommend this place enough - we are already in talk of booking again for next year. Thank you again ever so much!
This was our second stay at Shuttaford and we were very happy to be back. The house is beautiful and the games room is a great addition! We had a great time climbing tors and swimming in the river. Hope we can come back soon…
