Buzzards Bough is one of a selection of well equipped cottages set in 42 acres of woodland and pasture with spectacular views across open countryside all the way to Dartmoor. Newbarn Farm is within a beautiful valley close to Paignton, Totnes and Torquay, which borders on the South Hams area of South Devon, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

One of four cottages within the main farmhouse, Buzzards Bough is a secluded, apartment style cottage with two foot thick stone walls ensuring complete privacy. A small conservatory leads into a surprisingly spacious open plan lounge/diner together with a newly fitted kitchen. The master bedroom boasts wonderful views across Newbarn Farm's lakes and many a morning the two resident Buzzards can be seen hovering for their morning prey. A single bedroom sits at the back of the cottage which overlooks the private garden of Buzzards Bough. Both cottages are extremely well furnished, offering comfort of a high standard.

For resident guests there are reduced fees for daily/weekly fishing on the property's 6 coarse fishing lakes. All of our guests have some complimentary passes for the nearby pool & gym to use throughout their stay - equipped with modern gym, sauna, steam room and indoor swimming pool.

Guests are free to roam over the land and through the woods, taking in the abundance of wildlife - buzzards, herons, mallards and the odd cormorant are daily visitors. For dusk walkers, sightings of the resident badgers and rabbits are not uncommon.

A firm favourite of children of all ages is our outdoor play area sporting an adult-sized trampoline with safety net, swings, slide and wooden climbing wall.

The English Riviera region

South Devon is a popular holiday destination, boasting some of the highest temperatures during the summer months in England. Paignton is part of an area encompassing Torquay and Brixham - a beautiful unspoilt fishing harbour town, commonly known as the English Rivera. Oldway Mansion in the heart of Paignton was once the home of the Singer family, founders of the famous Sewing Machine. Agatha Christie was born and bred in Torquay, The Princess Theatre on the sea front often shows productions written by this legend.

Three miles from Buzzards Bough is the lovely town of Totnes which has a fabulous market every Friday in the heart of the town - plenty of local produce, a lot of organic, very orginal foods and some marvellous interesting artefacts! During the summer months, Elizabethan dress is almost compulsory with the locals going about their everyday business on a Tuesday. The town is definitely worth a visit - plenty of great eating places and some great Tea rooms with irresistible home made cakes!

The English Riviera boasts 22 miles of coastal paths and countless sandy beaches, the nearest is Goodrington Sands but Blackpool Sands is definitely worth a visit - you may have to pay to park in the car park but once it's full no one else is allowed onto this golden beach, therefore never crowded and just fabulous really clean facilities.

During the months of June, July and August there are countless fetes, fairs, festivals, carnivals - literally something happening every week.


Buzzards Bough is probably in one of the best locations for exploring South Devon. Few places in the world can genuinely offer you such a wide range of ways to spend your time. Relaxing on the beach, afternoons browsing through designer shops or visiting fascinating museums.

If you have the energy, there is a vast selection of sporting activities to choose from, both on the water and off the water, plus hundreds of place to visit within easy reach and a diary packed with events and festivals. For those looking to spread their wings there are historic towns, expansive morrs, picture-postcard villages and heritage-rich cities close by, just waiting to be discovered.

Just a few places to visit:


Paignton Zoo

Quaywest Water Park

Torbay Golf Centre

Junior Quad Bike Centre

Model Village

Kent's Cavern

"Outstanding views and very peaceful"

We arrived at Newbarn farm and were greeted by Yvonne. She gave us valuable information on where was nice to eat and where we were able to take our elderly dog. We chose Newbarn farm because they accept (well behaved) dogs and the farm is set in its own very large grounds in the country. This was a very big plus point for us because although we had our own private little garden, we could also go out of our gate and for walks with our dog around the pools and the lovely trail through fields and woodland. As other reviewers have said the place is stunningly beautiful. It is in an elevated position which makes the views even more spectacular and we watched hawks, buzzards and other wild birds over the fields surrounding us. The herd of black cows were super to watch too and we had a really beautiful sunset one night. The only thing that we thought could be a problem was that the accommodation we were in called Buzzards Bough was quite a long way from the car park and there were lots of steps to climb, so probably not so amenable for people with disabilities. Saying that there were other cottages situated right next to the car park which would have been fine for people with disabilities. Buzzards Bough is also part of the main house so we could hear people walking around occasionally which didn't bother us, we were just grateful to have privacy and our own garden for the dog. From what I understand only certain properties at Newbarn farm accommodate dogs, Buzzard Bough being one of them, and it seems that it has been well thought through. Newbarn farm is situated in a prime postion because it is so close to local towns and villages, Totnes, Paignton, Torquay, Babbacombe, Dartmouth to name a few, which made accessibility so easy, yet it is just far enough away for absolute peace. We visited Cockington and could hear a piano playing as we walked away from the car park. On investigation we found a pianist in the garden of a lovely old house and tea room, so we stopped, had some tea and listened to the wonderful music. What a treat and well worth a visit. All in all we had a great time and hope to return.
