About Barbara Thornton
I am a true Devonian. Born in Teignmouth and only living 2 miles from there now ... it could be said that I haven't gone far! I am retired now but I am fortunate to have had a very interesting life .... I grew up on my parents Devon farm, trained and worked as a nurse, have run a couple of successful businesses and now with my husband am enjoying retirement and fitting in as much travelling as time and health will allow.
Barbara Thornton purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Barbara Thornton chose Lustleigh
We have always loved Dartmoor, and Lustleigh in particular, so when, one day after a walk and visit to the Cleave Inn, we saw a 'For Sale' board outside Honeysuckle and Beechnut Lodges we were excited at the prospect of owning these beautiful little gems. At first we ran Honeysuckle as a holiday let and it was extremely popular but a few years later a house move meant it was impractical for this to continue and we sold it to a couple staying there on holiday to use as their own special retreat. We kept Beechnut and for many years it was occupied by a long-tern tenant. Now he has left and we have completely refurbished this gorgeous little lodge to make a perfect holiday venue for 2. We will of course enjoy many stays there ourselves but look forward to welcoming others to share in our unique little home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Beechnut is a lovable little house. Perfect for young and old, it is supremely comfortable with electric adjustable twin-linked beds (made up as a super-king on request), electric recliner sofa, a huge 4K TV, super fast broadband WiFI and a lovely natural, private garden. It is set in one of the most picturesque villages in Devon and is within the Dartmoor National Park. Just come and see for yourself I am sure that you too will be entranced by this quaint 200 year old 'bungalow'.

Warm, clean, comfortable & well equipped
4-day stay in late April
Beechnut Lodge was very comprehensively equipped, and it was very easy to live there.
It was a much-needed relaxing break, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Excellent accommodation in a beautiful location. Communication with the owner was very good and we were lucky enough to meet Barbara, who is lovely. We had a great stay and will certainly return in the future. Highly recommended.
Thank you for your kind review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, you certainly picked some good weather!
Really lovely, peaceful place
It was so relaxing staying in Beechnut. The village is quiet but charming and not a too far from places to visit. The cottage itself was immaculately clean, warm and inviting with a private garden. Barbara was very helpful and had left an amazing welcome package of breakfast items and other treats. I would highly recommend!
A lovely property in a lovely village
Everything we needed and more in such delightful surroundings. The owner was so attentive (via text/email) - making sure everything was ok. We enjoyed some amazing walks and the village pub was well worth a visit and dog friendly! A really relaxing break.
Thank you for your lovely review. I am delighted that you love our little cottage; we try to make it a special place for our guests to have their holidays and it is very rewarding to receive comments such as yours.
We hope that you will make a return visit sometime in the future.
