Kirkside Barn is the perfect place to switch off from everything, relax and enjoy our comfortable and cosy self catering holiday cottage oozing with charm and character. It is dog-friendly, and we welcome well-behaved pets so there’s no need to leave them at home.
Located next to the village church in Mary Tavy, in a conservation area, the cottage is four miles from Tavistock and sleeps up to eight, plus a baby or small child.
The cottage is furnished to a very high standard; cleverly converted from two stone-built barns and a hayloft to provide a split-level space that is bright and airy.
This region of Devon provides spectacular countryside, beautiful views and open moor, with lots of lovely and interesting places to visit and things to do, including walking, cycling, horse riding and gliding.
As your hosts we realise just how precious your holiday break is and do everything we can to make sure you feel welcome and comfortable during your stay. We are happy to accept children and can provide a cot or small bed with bedding, high chair and stair gates.

“So glad to be back. We look forward to our break here. Weather not bad at all, we’ve had worse. Cannot fault Kirkside Barn, it has everything you need, could be our 2nd home. Thank you Steve & Adey – such a pleasure to see you each year. We’ll be back.”
