The Tamar Orchard Barn at Sandhill House Country Retreat (near Tavistock)

Tamar Orchard Barn
A Studio Barn nestled in the heart of the stunning Tamar Valley
Tamar Orchard Barn is set in 2 acres of gardens at Sandhill House Bed & Breakfast, overlooking stunning, uninterrupted views of the Tamar Valley.
On the approach to our enchanting self-catering cottage,  you’ll pass through the delightful water gardens, before finding yourself in an oasis of green, surrounded by nature.
The barn itself has a bright, contemporary interior and a well-equipped open plan living and kitchen area.  After an action packed day visiting historic local market towns or exploring walks with your four-legged friend,  you can retreat in the cosy barn or enjoy a glass of wine on a private south facing terrace.
We are situated right in the heart of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Site on the Devon/Cornwall border,  offering the perfect base for dog lovers.  From here, you can explore Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor as well the Tamar Valley trails.   With over 25k of woodland trail to choose from in the Tamar Valley, there is plenty of opportunity to let your dog run off lead so that you can enjoy a relaxed holiday with your canine companion.
Most local pubs are dog-friendly, serving traditional dishes and good cask ales.  For a fine dining experience there are several renowned restaurants for a genteel afternoon tea or a decadent supper nearby. 
If you fancy alfresco dining ‘at home’ then the Barn has its own BBQ for those balmy, sunny evenings. If you fancy a real treat, you are very welcome to have breakfast cooked for you in the main house, by arrangement, at the cost of £8.50 per person.

We’re open throughout the year both for business and pleasure. There is no charge for your doggy companions.
