About Wagtail Cottage

Newhouse Barton offers 3 high quality, individual cottages set in the lush green pastures of South Devon, midway between Totnes and Newton Abbot. Formerly the buildings of a working farm, the cottages have been sympathetically and carefully restored. All the properties are well equipped and have a real 'home from home' feel to them. Facilities include a superb 38' indoor heated pool, games room, outdoor children's play area and communal barbecue area.
Short 3/4 night breaks accepted with Monday/Friday changeover days only.
Enjoying peace and tranquillity, the cottages are set amidst 30 acres of private arable farmland and benefit from beautiful views of the rolling Devon countryside. The English Riviera of Torbay and the magical golden beaches of South Devon's coastline are nearby.
A superb detached barn conversion on the south coast offering selfcatering accommodation. Ideally located for the beach yet benefitting from all the features of a luxury country cottage, this family holiday cottage located with all the indoor facilities cannot fail to please on all levels.
