Our Inspector's view
Swallow Barn is a fantastic converted barn set in 2 acres overlooking the high peaks of Dartmoor. Situated just outside the picturesque village of Lydford, it is the perfect base to explore Dartmoor, yet an easy drive from north and south Devon and even the Cornish coasts. The barn itself is extremely spacious with a mix of traditional build and modern finishes. It's an ideal base for walkers year round with separate boot room. Dogs are welcome by prior agreement.

About the area
With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.
Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them.
Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
