Property code: 37090

Barn conversion property in a tranquil rural location, set within three acres of the owner’s land, and situated just outside the pretty village of Buckland Brewer.

Nestled within 3 acres of the owner’s land, Buckbury is a beautiful barn conversion that promises a tranquil stay to guests. Cosy and comfortable with a traditional rustic feel, this charming property is an opportunity to escape to the countryside in deep North Devon. Enjoy breakfast in the bright and airy kitchen/diner before heading out to the grounds to say hello to the roaming animals, or take the kids over to the shared trampoline and climbing equipment to stretch their legs before a day of exploring.

Whether you’re snuggling up in front of the wood burner or taking in the views from the Juliet balcony in the open-plan living area, you’ll feel immersed in rural life here. The entire house has a country cottage feel with contemporary touches that make a perfect mix of old and new. A reverse-level property, the living area has huge apex ceilings with exposed beams that make the room bright and airy, but it becomes a relaxing haven in the evening when you climb into the sleeping cabin in front of the fire with a book. Although the property is attached to the owner's home, you’re ensured complete privacy.

Before heading out into the North Devon countryside, be sure to explore the grounds and visit the animals, or walk down to the open pond at the end of the field. Then jump in the car to pretty harbour town Bideford (6 miles), where you can take a boat trip to Lundy Island and see the puffins and maybe even dolphins. Children will love the Milky Way Adventure Park (8 miles), and from there you could visit the historic village Clovelly (10 miles) with stunning coastal views and steep cobbled streets.

Very rural setting for a peaceful stay in very well equipped cottage. The setting is extremely quiet and the owners were lovely giving us as much space as needed. Its about 10 minutes drive to Bideford. Would recommend.

What a lovely holiday. The beautiful cottage is in a very quiet setting and surrounded by farm land. The only noise are the hens and ducks which was fabulous. The cottage is really spacious and very comfortable. The only downside is although it states it has WIFI we couldn't get a connection at all.

If you are looking for peace and tranquility in a stunning setting, this place is for you. Beckbury is absolutely flawless. Richard and Ann are the perfect hosts, my children had the best week feeding the chickens, exploring the grounds and doing archery. We will definitely be back.

We had a brilliant week here. We were nervous travelling so close to the lockdown being eased but everything was in place to make sure we were safe. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and had a wealth of local knowledge to help us find quiet spots to enjoy away from any crowds. Having the land on site for children to play in was brilliant and our 3 Read moreyear old loved feeding the chickens and learning about the wildlife. The location was great to access both the Devon and Cornwall coasts. Thank you! Hide

The barn had been beautifully converted into comfortable accommodation. Its in a good location, close to some good days out ie Clovelly, Westward Ho and Bideford. The owners really go the extra mile to make your stay special.

Anne and Richard were wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to make us feel at home. The cottage and the grounds are intriguing and delightful - it was so peaceful and we were able to see so many stars at night. It was our first visit to North Devon, and we found so much to do within easy reach. It was the perfect place for our 6 yr old boy.

This was a fantastic place to escape the stresses of everyday living. Beautiful cottage and lovely hosts. Would suit couples or families looking for peace and quiet. There is lots of open space outside for children to run free and a lovely patio area to read a book and have a glass of wine.

Located in a quiet, beautiful valley, where you can see more stars than I've ever seen from home at night, this 'upside down' converted barn is comfortable, well equipped and has friendly chicken neighbours too! We loved our holiday.
