About this listing
Threshers Barn is located in the tiny hamlet of East Leigh, nr Harberton, about 3 miles from Totnes & Dartington, Dartmoor is about 10 miles one way, the coast 10 miles the other. Harberton and its ancient pub are about 1.5 miles down the road. The local scenery is spectacular, great for walking and cycling although it is very hilly. I have one double room with ensuite facilities and lovely views over the hills, and 2 single rooms with sole use of shower & loo. I provide bed and continental breakfast, which includes juice, home-made bread and a range of cereals. You can also book an individual session or join in the pilates classes I run from the sunrise room in the 1.5 acre woodland garden. There's free broadband, but even better hardly any light pollution so it's great for stargazing!
This listing is for my double room with ensuite shower and loo, at £45.00 per night. It has a double bed, but is worth noting that it's quite a small one (4ft wide). I also have a single room listed separately under Friendly Welcome in Deepest Devon at £28.00 per night.
The farmhouse kitchen/dining room is a communal area. Breakfast is provided here, but there is no access to cooking facilities.
Interaction with Guests
I'm here most of the time and happy to chat and advise how to get the best out of the locality if that is what visitors are interested in.
Enjoy your visit
A fantastic accommodating host who was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. A good experience.
We loved the location. Close to Totnes, Dartington and Dartmouth but also deep in the countryside ( but you do have to navigate the notorious Devon lanes to get to it!) We liked the peace and quiet, the views and the walk up the lane. Sasha made us very welcome and had left out stuff so we could make drinks when ever we wanted which was very welcome. The room was small but clean and comfortable with en suite which we weren't expecting so added bonus. Sasha had left out breakfast every day so we could have it whenever we wanted and a highlight was hearing her play the piano in the back ground while we ate it.
If you were coming to an event at Dartington hall this would be a good place to choose as not far away.
Also recommend lunch at Riverford Organic Farm Field Cafe. You have to book.
Had a lovely stay in Devon albeit for only one night. Had a warm greeting from Sasha who welcomed us into her home. Our room and en suite was clean with a great view of the surrounding countryside. Would have no hesitation in staying in the future.
We had a nice time at Sasha's. The room is nice and cosy. It has a beautiful view and a good size bathroom. It is in good condition and clean. Sasha prepared fresh bread every morning (different type each day). It was very enjoyable to chat with her during our visit.
Sasha was a perfect host and communication with her was great! She gave us fool-proof instructions how to get to her property and it really looks even better in real life. We attended a wedding and didn't have much of a chance to explore Devon, but Sasha's barn would make a perfect location for hikers and cyclists.
The room was clean, airy and beautiful and despite catching a nasty case of food poisoning at the wedding, we still got a good night's rest on a comfy bed! The only thing to be aware of is that the bed has a a bar at the foot end and might not be ideal for very tall people (my boyfriend is 6"4 and had to angle his legs to fit in).
We had a great time and would definitely recommend Sasha's place to anyone! Thank you, Sasha!
Lovely little cottage- private room and bathroom were great. Bed was comfy, room was clean and breakfast was delicious!
Sasha is a very warm and relaxed host. The house was wonderfully presented and any need catered for. Absolutely gorgeous setting ... Incredible view out over the garden. Highly recommended

About the Host, Sasha
I have lived in this area for about a year now, having moved to the South Hams from Exmouth, following a career change, from working for a National Conservation Charity to retraining as a Personal Trainer/Pilates instructor.
