Description

The Threshing Barn is a unique home from home, set on Old Manor Farm in Torquay, and it’s perfect for a break with your extended family. A contemporary, open plan living, kitchen and dining space means it’s easy to relax as a group in style, and the barn’s historic features include exposed wooden beams that create a cosy feel throughout.

When the sun shines, the communal gardens make a peaceful place to spend time together and let the kids enjoy the trampoline, and there’s a barbeque for those evenings when you fancy dining al fresco. The stone walls that enclose the garden nod to the farm’s history, and the apple trees that dot it once belonged to the old orchard that called the site home.

When evening closes in, it’s time to head up the chic stylish staircase from the living area and find your bedroom, and whichever you opt for you’ll discover a welcoming space to help you unwind after a busy day. The master bedroom has a beautiful super king size bed, the second bedroom has a king size bed, and the third bedroom has a king size bed that can also be arranged to form twins. The third bedroom’s just right for the younger members of the group, thanks to stylish bunk beds.

And then there’s the bathroom, with a roll top bath to add a little luxury to your stay, you’ll be dreaming of long soaks in the bubbles even before you’ve unpacked…enjoy!

Please note: The Threshing Barn can be booked together with Honeysuckle and Sweet Rose to accommodate up to 14.

This property especially welcomes families. A cot and highchair is provided plus stairgate, children's cutlery, giant trampoline and enclosed garden. A baby sitting service is available and there are safe lights in hallways.

The Threshing Barn was part of the complex which won the 2013 South West Hospitality Awards for the best self catering accommodation and was the runner up in 2014.

The Threshing Barn, Old Manor Farm

We wanted a large barn which allowed pets, Threshing Barn was perfect! After looking through the information packs provided we enjoyed some memorable days out to varied places including; Brixham, Paignton, Totnes and Torquay of course. Bombay Express Indian was delicious as well as The Devon Arms! Thank you very much for our stay. The holiday was excellent; the barn was spotless and exceeded our expectations. Thank you

The Threshing Barn, Old Manor Farm

Threshing Barn is a lovely, comfortable place to relax. Excellent specification for a holiday property! We have enjoyed some wonderful days out including; a super walk along Brixham harbour with some great fish and chips! The Barn Owl was delicious as well as the Drum Inn in Cockington. We'll never forget watching some mad men surfing whilst snow was falling!!! Many thanks for a warm welcome and a fantastic stay. We will certainly be back in the future.

The Threshing Barn, Old Manor Farm

We love Devon and have been many times, we're always finding new places to visit when we're here. It's so easy to get around with the excellent bus service; we only needed the car once whilst we were here! Dartmouth was beautiful, some lovely places to eat over there. Thank you for a good stay. We came last year and will definitely be visiting again. It's like home from home. The lovely little touches (milk, cake & wine) are greatly appreciated. Good luck with your future venture

The Threshing Barn, Old Manor Farm

We used Threshing Barn as a base to check out local areas as we're thinking of moving here. We found it to be in a great location with friendly hosts. We enjoyed visiting Coffinswell and Abottskerswell as well as Newton Abbott, brilliant play area for the little ones (two bare feet). Thank you for a lovely stay and making us feel so welcome from the get go.

The Threshing Barn, Old Manor Farm

Thank you for our stay in Threshing Barn. We had a lovely week which we all enjoyed. It was large enough to accommodate our family of 8 without us feeling on top of each other. Pilgrims Rest is central to lots of places and activities, so helpful to have you around for extra information. The Thatched Tavern, Babbacombe Downs, Paignton Zoo were all excellent. We also enjoyed a great game of golf in the lovely weather. Could be back next year!

The Threshing Barn, Old Manor Farm

We've stayed in a number of Bluechip properties and they've all been superb so we knew Threshing Barn would be too, which it was! There are lots of great places to visit around the Bay, we strongly recommend future guests use the guides provided as they're excellent. Our favourite place to eat was The Thatched Tavern; it's an excellent place with friendly staff. They're also dog friendly which was a bonus for us. We won't forget the very friendly and warm welcome we received at Pilgrims Rest. Thank you for an enjoyable stay. The wine and chocolate cake you left for us on arrival was delicious.

We loved the pictures on your website as well as the seaside location and price! We were not disappointed in fact we were delighted! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Brixham; the restaurant next to the Golden Hind was excellent. We really liked the open plan downstairs space in Threshing Barn; ideal for families. Thank you for your welcome and friendliness. Happy New Year!

We came to Pilgrims Rest for an early Christmas gathering with our children and grandchildren; we've had a brilliant time! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip up to Babbacombe; Angel's tearoom was excellent for food as well as value for money. Threshing Barn was well equipped with everything we needed. Thank you so much.

We came to have a lovely holiday with the family, this is exactly what we got from Old Manor Farm.

We've had a lovely stay in Threshing Barn, extremely well equipped and in a great location for exploring. Torquay Harbour is beautiful with plenty of eateries. We strongly recommend future guests try the Chinese takeaway just up the road, it's very good! Thank you for the sightseeing ideas and all the information you provided. You've been extremely helpful.

We could not have chosen better accommodation

Absolutely fantastic!!!! Martin and Kim (owners) have created the perfect base for a family holiday in Torbay. The personal touches made all the difference to our stay as we felt immediately welcome which in turn made us relax. We could not have chosen better accommodation and feel so lucky to have found you! Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

The Threshing Barn, Old Manor Farm

Threshing barn is both luxurious and unique, with an open plan setting. The location was great as well, not far from the town centre. Living Coasts, Pennywell farm and Kents Cavern were all brilliant days out! We were very impressed by the excellent presentation of the property and hospitality of the owners. The children were particularly pleased to find a chocolate cake on arrival (and I, the wine), thank you.

The Threshing Barn, Old Manor Farm

We came to Pilgrims Rest for an extended family holiday, we found Threshing Barn to be perfect. There is so much to do and enjoy; Cockington, Oddicombe beach, Paignton pier, Brixham and the Dinosaur museum are just some of the excursions we loved! The barn offers a great social area for families as well as a good-sized garden (great for BBQs). Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will definitely come again and recommend you to others.

We were looking for a holiday to all be together, Threshing Barn allowed that. There is so much to do in the local area; Cockington and Paignton Zoo are great days out. Cotton Eye Joe's was lovely for a meal out. We have all had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. Thank you for being so helpful.

We came to Torquay for a wedding as well as a holiday: the hosts were welcoming from the outset. We've enjoyed a wonderful family holiday. Threshing Barn allowed us to all have our own space as well as plenty of room to all come together to chill out and enjoy each other's company. A big thank you for making us feel so welcome; the chocolate cake, wine and milk on arrival was very much enjoyed! See you next year.

Winter family holiday

My family - husband, 2 adult children and my father - had a lovely time at the Threshing Barn. The weather was terrible, with gales and rain, but the Barn was perfect for an indoor holiday. Its open-plan ground floor, comprising kitchen, dining area and seating area, allowed us all to be together but not on top of each other. The decor is modern, clean and simple and makes a good contrast with the open beams and thick walls of the structure. The owner was friendly and helpful, and the closeness of basic shops made the location extremely convenient. All in all, we were able to have a very pleasant, relaxed stay.

We were looking for a seaside break to accommodate us all. Threshing Barn was perfect. From the get go Martin (owner) was both friendly and helpful, giving us a lovely start to our break. There is so much to do in so little time; we strongly recommend guests try to stay more than a couple of days as there is so much to do and see! Thank you for everything, we will definitely return.

We were looking for a relaxed, dog friendly break not too far from home. Pilgrims Rest was perfect. We found we really enjoyed our day out to Cockington as well as our many walks along Torquay front. We'll always remember staying in your lovely, relaxed accommodation with great friends! Thank you for your imagination and lovely laid back attitude as well as your professional care for the property. It all helped to ensure we had a great little holiday!
