The Cow Shed is a fabulous brand new barn conversion in a beautiful setting with a huge patio, meadow and far reaching views.
There is a fully enclosed patio and beyond is the meadow which is a fabulous space for you to enjoy too.
The living-room has fabulous furnishings and French windows out onto the patio - with that great view beyond.
Another view of this lovely room. You will not fail to switch off and relax here.
There is plenty of room for you to curl up on the sofas to watch a film - the television is in the corner to the right.
The kitchen/dining-room also has a door to the patio. This is a really stylish home-from-home with everything you could need for your holiday here.
The contemporary kitchen design not only suits the cottage perfectly but is so easy and functional, with plenty of worktop space too.
Even the utility-room between the kitchen and the downstairs bathroom has style!
The downstairs bathroom has been beautifully designed.
There is a lovely deep bath as well as a walk-in shower.
Both the luxurious bedrooms have Velux windows and characterful sloping ceilings but both have plenty of space. A photo of the second bedroom will follow shortly.
Everything is top quality at The Cow Shed.
The stairwell is filled with light and the two bedrooms are separated by a landing and the shower-room.
There is a very useful separate shower-room on the first floor.
This wonderful space is all for you. The meadow spreads out directly in front of the cottage - there is even a hammock at the far end.
Choose a shady spot or lounge in the sun - this is the perfect spot
The setting is just lovely for al fresco meals with a panoramic view.
There is plenty of parking right next to the cottage and there is also an undercover parking space if you wish to use it.
This is the view directly in front of the cottage and its patio. Yours to make the most of.
This is the edge of village setting. The Owners' farmhouse is set back from the cottage and so you will have plenty of privacy. The village has a CAMRA pub and a wonderful village shop/cafe.
This gorgeous bedroom has a wonderful sleigh bed.
Luxurious soft furnishings and bedding add to the experience here.
This is the second double bedroom - with a 'zip and link' bed in case you want it to be set up as twin beds.
There is plenty of light and all the other touches make this a really welcoming room.

This was the most relaxing break away. Sam and Pete are very helpful and only next door. Made to feel very welcome by the locals at the Red Lion Pub. Gorgeous place which has been furnished to a very high standard.

November 2017

Lovely and cozy excellent underfloor heating.

September 2017

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the cottage, really relaxing in fabulous surroundings. Absolutely fabulous for dogs with the large field for them to run whilst you relax on the terrace. Would love to return, many thanks.

Everything about The Cow Shed endorses the level of thought and attention to detail that has gone into producing this beautiful accommodation. It is furnished to a very high standard and is both welcoming and relaxing. The Cow Shed is a fabulous place to unwind, in a quiet village location with walks on the doorstep as well as stunning countryside surrounding you. Would definitely recommend this slice of Devonshire heaven!

September 2017

Excellent cottage, easily in the top 3 or 4 we've had from Classic and we've had a lot. Wonderful location and cottage was faultless. The only slight issue was had was sorted promptly by the owners who couldn't have been any more helpful. There was even cake and local cider waiting on our arrival, what more could you want. I've a feeling we may be returning.

August 2017

Lovely property and a lovely quiet location, would stay again!

July 2017

It was home from home, everything we needed for a great holiday, pity about the weather but that's the UK for you! We had a lovely time and hope to return some day, thanks Kerry and Martin from Staffordshire...

July 2017

You arrive and can immediately settle in with tea/coffee. Owner provided fresh milk, cake and even a bottle of local cider. What more can you want after travelling. Salt/pepper/washing up liquid may not seem of concern until you need them...but not an issue at the Cow Shed.

June 2017

Lovely stylish and comfortable cottage which is dog friendly in a great little village.

June 2017

A well-equipped cottage, with a huge garden. It's location is very quiet, yet easily accessible and makes for an excellent gateway to many activities around Devon; walks, cycling, Dartmoor, beaches, and the family's favourite - Dragon Archery that can be found on the route out to Bude. We would be very happy to stay here again.

August 2016

This is a lovely cottage that we really felt at home in. It is decorated and furnished brilliantly and has all you need, including a very good book and music library! We recommend booking ahead for the Dragon Archery - a lot of fun 20 minutes drive away.

July 2016

A beautiful cottage in peaceful and tranquil surroundings. The local people are extremely friendly as well as Pete the Owner. A good deal of joviality was had in the local pub to make us welcome as well, when we arrived having our first meal there.

June 2016

Location is very peaceful The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of pots and pans Good size bedrooms Plenty of books and dvd's for rainy days Lovely chocolate cake and milk for a cuppa on arrival

May 2016

Beautifully decorated and just as lovely as the pictures look. Fully enclosed patio area for the dogs with stones and slabs. The grassy area is huge and the weather was warm and sunny for us so nice to sit out on the deck chairs with a glass of wine in the evening. You need to have well-trained dogs in the field area as that part is not fully enclosed. The shower was amazing and powerful and the bedrooms were very large with plenty of storage space for your clothes. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet out in the country. Only a short stroll to nice pub just up the lane with very friendly staff and the pub accepts dogs inside. The furnishings looked like they were planned by an interior designer, very pretty. You didn't feel like you were just given all the left-over stuff that the owners no longer wanted like you find in some cottages. The only thing to be aware of is that the cottage is immediately behind the owner's house and you can see them in their back garden from every aspect of the back of the cottage. The owners are very friendly and we had a lovely welcome pack including homemade banana bread and even some dog treats. Perfect location for exploring Dartmoor park with some beautiful walks. Waitrose just a 7 minute drive from the cottage in Okehampton and there were some really nice walks and a pretty park in that town as well. Would definitely recommend.

March 2016

Fantastic views over breath taking countryside.

February 2016

We had a lovely stay, The Cow Shed is beautiful and the owners were very welcoming and helpful. I would highly recommend a stay here!

December 2015

The Cow Shed is finished to the highest of standards and is so lovely you might never want to leave.

December 2015

Brilliant hosts. Liked everything.

September 2015

Perfect! Lovely comfortable cottage with a well equipped kitchen and beautiful views across the Devon countryside. The fully enclosed patio is perfect and the meadow beyond ideal for dog walking or playing. Superb location for exploring Devon and the village has an excellent community shop and cafe.

August 2015

It's clear a lot of thought ( and love) has gone into this. Loved the accommodation the great open field for the kids and the nice quiet village location and Rosie the cat was a great hit.

August 2015

It was fantastic. We absolutely can't fault it.

The beds were very comfy, and although we didn't make use of the kitchen as we were mainly eating out, it did seem very well equipped. The two bathrooms are much appreciated and the rooms are light and airy.

The large field was superb and our girls loved running around and using the hammock.

Sam & Pete had clearly given much thought to the cottage to make it welcoming and comfortable, and the appearance of Rosie the pet cat on a daily basis to welcome us home was nice although I don't think she'd been trained especially!

It's location was perfect; being in a village with an excellent community shop/cafe and a pub which serves good meals ( ideal after the long trip on arrival day)- both of which are just 2 minutes walk, as well as being well situated for days out.

August 2015

Good location for exploring Devon, beautifully restored property to a very high standard in a lovely village.

July 2015

The property exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful, stylish classic and modern all at the same time. It was like a home away from home, warm and cozy. The kids loved it and so did the dog. What's not to like!

July 2015

We had a Fabulous Honey Moon and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Cow Shed! The cottage was just how it was described and it was very clean and comfortable very well located for exploring devon and Cornwall, with fantastic views from the cottage... a very relaxing place with very nice home comforts. We will be recommending Classic Cottages to our friends and family.. very easy to book and efficient service. Many Thanks for Making our Honey Moon so memorable! The little touches of cake and ballon and bubbles made our day!! Lisa and Jim
