The Devon region

Lydford lies on the west side of Dartmoor and is a few miles away from Cornwall.

The market towns of Okehampton and Tavistock are easily reached.

There are many attractions in the area such as National Trust properties, forests, walks, market towns, countryside and of course the high moors.

The north Devon coast can be reached within 50 minutes.


Lydford is an extremely attractive village and is home to the renowned National Trust Lydford Gorge which has wonderful walks and waterfalls.

The Granite Way cycle route passes through the village and there are plenty of lanes and countryside for walking in.

Dartmoor is wonderful if you want to get away from everyone or simply find the ponies with a bag of carrots. It is an obvious destination for walking and exploring but for those less able, car touring is easy.

"Excellent property in a great location"

We very much enjoyed our stay at Swallow Barn. It is in a good location, just 5-10 minutes walk from the small village of Lydford, with great views and plenty of nice places to walk nearby. The barn itself has been decorated and furnished really well and is clearly looked after. The kitchen and lounge areas are particularly spacious and the fire in between the two was nice on the cold winter nights!

"Wonderful and peaceful"

The property is lovely and is of a hgh standard, it has everything you could want including unlimited wifi broadband, full range of TV channels, huge dining room and a well fitted kitchen which I admit I hardly used as I used the village pub. The barn was warm with underfloor heating and there are plenty of logs to burn if you fancy. The views are amazing from the lounge and this room is quite soporific even when its raining outside.

"A peaceful and comfortable cottage in the English countryside"

We loved our time at Swallow Barn and cannot recommend it highly enough to others. Lydford Gorge is spectacular and it was fun to stop for a cream tea halfway through the easy hike. With recommendations from the housekeeper we found a fantastic guide for a walking tour of Dartmoor. Swallow Barn itself is beautiful, well maintained and had everything we needed for a delightful stay with our family. It is in such a great location with easy access to Tintagel Cornwall (Camelot) Exeter and south western Devon. Buses were easy to catch if family members were going different places. We LOVE Swallow Barn and Lydford and would recommend it to everyone.
