Ground-floor apartment located in an unusual roundhouse barn on the owner’s 160-acre arable farm, just four miles from the edge of Dartmoor National Park and three miles from the town of Tavistock.
You couldn’t better the location in which the unique Lower Roundhouse finds itself. Just 2 miles away from the ancient market town of Tavistock and on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, you are also situated among 160 acres of glorious farmland. A superb base for couples looking to do lots of walking as well as explore one of England’s most ancient stannaries, this quirky property provides an unusual place to stay during your holiday.
One of three properties, this charming roundhouse is true to its name. Situated on the ground floor, rounded walls and exposed beams give the space a rustic charm and an electric fire offers a warming retreat on cold evenings. On summer days, head outside through the patio doors onto a private area where you can enjoy a lovely West Country cream tea in the farm’s tranquil setting. If you are feeling sociable, take a stroll over to the larger shared garden to soak up the sun or enjoy an impromptu picnic.
Journey into Tavistock where you will find a delightful pannier market, bursting to the brim with locally-made products. There are lots of independent shops and restaurants in the town and a theatre if you want to catch a play. Miles of spectacular walking country is on offer in Dartmoor National Park, which is under a mile away as well as around the Tamar Valley, just 3 miles south. A 20-mile drive brings you to the port city of Plymouth, a fantastic day out where you can visit the National Marine Aquarium and The Mayflower Steps.
