Set in a secluded valley just outside the beautiful coastal town of Dartmouth, Pound Barn is one of five residential properties that make up Lower Norton Farm. It has been converted to a high standard and is set in three acres of private hillside garden with its own stream and ponds. It has a large south-facing terrace and a stylish yet cosy interior with under-floor heating in the kitchen. At any time of the year, Pound Barn provides the perfect holiday home from which to explore the South Hams, renowned for coastal walks, beaches and pretty villages. The peace and tranquility of the property is ‘medicine for the soul’ and yet it’s just a stone’s throw from restaurants, shops and visitor attractions. The magnificent terrace offers al fresco dining, views of the garden and a sun deck for that glass of wine before dinner. A stroll up to the top of the hillside garden rewards you with breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside and the River Dart.
Pound Barn is our second home and therefore equipped to a high standard. There is full central heating throughout including under floor heating in the kitchen. A high chair is provided and a travel cot available on request (bring your own cot linen). WiFi is available and a telephone landline for emergency and incoming calls. No smoking and no pets.
Pound Barn is accessed via a rough, bridle path. There is parking for up to 4 vehicles in the front gravel drive. There are two sunny terraces, one accessed from the upstairs living room, the other large terrace off the kitchen stretches the width of the house with ample tables, chairs and sun-loungers for eating or relaxing. There's also a barbecue. The terrace leads up to the three-acre hillside garden with its ponds, stream and spectacular views. Small children will need supervision. The garden is planted with trees, shrubs and flowers to provide interest and colour throughout the year. Half way up is a garden shed with table tennis and punch bag.
A utility room has a washing machine, dryer, hanging rail, iron and ironing board . Bed linen (except cot linen) and towels are included. Maid service available on request.

It's immaculate. It's beautifully restored, imaginatively designed and fabulously equipped. The gardens are absolutely lovely though you need stamina to get to the top of the hill. It's well worth it when you do with a glimpse of the sea from among the trees and over the hills. It's a perfect place for a family break or a break with friends - it seems to induce relaxation! It's also amazingly well located - very close to Dartmouth - which is lovely - but completely quiet and peaceful away from the crowds. We think it's also very good value and it's hard to see how it could be improved. Can't wait to go back.

Amazing Holiday In Beautiful Surroundings
By Sarah B. on 14-Jul-2016
We stayed at Pound Barn at the beginning of July. We were a large family of mum and dad, 2 siblings, other halves and an 18 month old. What an amazing holiday we had! Pound Barn is a credit to Lea and her husband. Large, beautiful and well equiped, we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay as well as more than enough space inside and out. My son loved running about in the large gardens and looking at the ducks and animals around the cottage. We had glorious weather and really enjoyed chilling in the garden in the sunshine and walking in the countryside around the cottage. Being not far from dartmouth, we took a walk in which was nice and there is so much to do in the area.... beaches, steam train, agatha Christies house, dartmouth, nature reserves, caves and so much more. Would highly recommend Pound Barn and would like to thank Lea and her husband for such a lovely stay.
Special Family Christmas!
By Alyson J. on 28-Dec-2014
This lovely cottage hosted our very special family Christmas and made it one we will never forget! Perfect location, warm, cosy and comfortable rooms with everything we needed and more. Even the weather didn't spoil things as we preferred to stay put. Would thoroughly recommend and hope to stay again! Thank you!
Fabulous Family Holiday!
By Sharon A on 24-Aug-2014
What a fabulous family holiday there was 9 of us in total and a well behaved dog ranging from 6 weeks to 68 and we all thoroughly enjoyed staying in this 5 star accommodation.
The cottage itself was well equipped, luxurious, clean and just in such a beautiful location, the gardens (land) attached was amazing Molly the dog and the children just loved exploring it all week!
Location absolutely perfect, we had a fabulous family day at Woodlands Leisure Park literally 5 mins drive down the road, a great day on a sandy beach at Bigbury and attended a lovely wedding in Dartmouth and experienced the steam train and river boat! Overall a fun packed week!
Because the weather was good to us we had two BBQs and completely chilled out in the cottage in the evenings while the children slept soundly!
The owner was extremely helpful, all communication was efficient and prompt would not hesitate to book another week again and recommend this to family and friends!
Cottage In Dartmouth
By Richard Crabtree on 27-Jun-2014
The cottage is very attractive and situated in a beautiful rural position less than 2 miles outside Dartmouth with easy access to south Devon beaches. Facilities are excellent with spacious clean rooms and a stunning garden. For those who get good weather it is well provided with outside furniture. I don't think I have any complaints.
