Pilgrims Rest Cottages is a collection of three unique, award winning cottages that have been welcoming guests year round since 2009. This collection of cottages is located within the conservation area of Barton, one of the historic villages that make up the popular seaside town of Torquay, South Devon.


Originally the barns of a 15th Century Devon longhouse, 'The Old Manor Farmhouse', these handsome cob and stone buildings have been graded by English Heritage as a site of ‘National Importance’; now the  oldest residency on the English Riviera with reputed links to The Spanish Armada .and the Prince of Orange becoming King no less!


Threshing Barn is one of three award winning barns at Pilgrims Rest. This magnificent 4-bedroom barn is brimming with quality and has been designed for comfort and flexibility, comfortably accommodating up to 8 adults plus infants.


At the heart of this barn is the large downstairs level where space and comfort abound. Featuring a large open plan kitchen/dining area, and a beautifully finished lounge, the warm colour schemes and wonderful exposed oak creates the perfect setting for relaxed family get togethers or special occasions.


Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms (two super-king, one king and twin beds) and 2 bathrooms. A further downstairs shower room means there's no queuing in the mornings!

Threshing Barn makes the perfect choice for families and friends holidaying together and has been described by past guests as “cosy, spacious, well-equipped and peaceful”.
