Clifford Barton Holiday Cottages - 2 bedroom cottage (sleeps 5) nestled in the heart of the beautiful wooded Teign Valley on Dartmoor - next to National Trust's Fingle Woods (850 hectares of footpaths, wildlife haven, mountain biking), set in 50 acres private nature reserve with 2 acre lake.

We arrived at Mardon late on the Friday night after a long drive, the hosts had been in and put the lights on to welcome us. The cottage was warm and welcoming and a beautiful cake and local apple juice was on the table which was an unexpected and much appreciated surprise.
We booked the cottage as we were attending a wedding near by and Vicki had helped me with booking of taxis etc..

A great "get away from it all" cottage in a beautiful setting, we were there to work on our daughter's wedding otherwise we would have taken advantage of the lovely walks around Clifford Barton and into Fingle Woods. Kids will love it with their own mezzanine play room, games area and the bikes and animals. Thank you.
The barn is spacious and beautifully designed. There is an emphasis on caring for the the environment and wildlife which we really appreciated. The owners thoughtfully provided numerous extras - including a fantastic home-made cake and free use of bicycles. A very comfortable and uplifting place overall, only about 10 mins from A30 but quiet and peaceful, and close to wonderful riverside walks and cycles.
