Situated on the outskirts of the south west side of the Dartmoor National Park, this charming property promises a lavish retreat as well as a great base to explore all that the county has to offer.
This delightful barn conversion is set on the owner’s land amidst stunning Devon countryside, a mile north-west of the market town of Tavistock. Both the perfect retreat for friends and family and great base for exploring Dartmoor and Devon, you’ll be sitting pretty in this woodland hideaway. The fine local pub is a short stroll, and there’s a host of other lovely independent shops and eateries in town. There’s plenty to do nearby, such as the Wheal Betsy Tin Mine (4 miles), Merrivale Stones and Prehistoric Settlement (6 miles) and Buckland Abbey (8 miles). Try a spot of fishing at the on-site Tavistock Trout Fishery.
The barn’s unique feature is its split-level design, allowing both separation and integration of space for privacy and mingling. Accessed via a small set of stairs, the lovely leather sofas in the lounge offer an excellent vantage point on the well-equipped kitchen/diner. The first floor bedrooms are relaxing and luxurious, with just the right balance of elegant rustic and contemporary features. The downstairs double room has superb country views via patio doors. Within the enclosed lakeside patio you’ll find a BBQ, seating and a fantastic hot tub, with its own woodland and water views.
There are so many day trips to enjoy. Discover gorgeous Morwellham Quay (6 miles), with its historic port, village, copper mine and railway. Explore the Cotehele estate (10 miles), with its Tudor house perched high above the River Tamar, gardens, orchards, quay and tea room. The ancient city of Plymouth is just 16 miles away, with its excellent Barbican Theatre, exciting shops, pubs, art galleries and museums. Children should try the Dartmoor Mystery Treasure Trail, which may just start a lifelong love affair with Devon and the moor.
