The Pound House (6 persons)

The Pound House is a newly converted barn that is over 200 years old and retains many of the original features. It has been awarded 4 stars by the Tourist Agency.

The barn was originally used to grind, or pound, corn and is placed in a beautifully tranquil area on the edge of Newton Abbot. In character there are exposed beams and a wood-burning stove. These features are enhanced by under-floor heating throughout. Any visitor will be thrilled by the tranquillity of The Pound House and yet benefit from the proximity to the main axis roads to Devon and Cornwall. The barn is close to Dartmoor and the local beaches are a short drive away.

The Pound House has two levels. The tiled ground floor provides an open-plan lounge and dining-room which leads into a well-equipped kitchen. The first floor is accessed via a wooden staircase to the three bedrooms and bathroom. This lovely cottage will appeal to a family or couples seeking a holiday retreat in a peaceful rural spot yet within easy reach of the coastal resorts. Six people can stay in luxury for a great holiday.
