Property code: MILLP

A beautifully converted barn which enjoys a rural setting adjacent to a working farm with woodland walks, a pretty millpond, a summerhouse and guaranteed peace and quiet for a countryside escape.

Situated on a working farm in rural Northwest Devon, this beautifully converted barn will enable you to switch off, relax and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the surrounding countryside. With woodland walks, a picturesque millpond, a summerhouse and unbridled views, this property provides the ideal retreat in the heart of what is known as Ruby Country. Conveniently located close to the Devon/Cornwall border, you can explore the best of both counties, including the stunning coastline and South West Coast Path only 14 miles north.

Sympathetically renovated and tastefully decorated, everyone will feel at home in this one-storey property. The high-vaulted ceilings and exposed beams create light and space throughout, whilst the warm tones and wooden floors create a sense of warmth and comfort. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area has a well-equipped kitchen, plenty of seating at the table and comfortable chairs to retire to after a busy day exploring. The master bedroom is spacious and the twin bedroom can be made up to a king-size if necessary. Stepping outside, you can enjoy the enclosed patio area with garden furniture, BBQ and gorgeous views. Guests are also welcome to explore the large lawn, woodland and millpond too.

The coastline near here is understandably an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its dramatic cliffs, crashing waves and sandy beaches. In the seaside town of Bude (14 miles northwest), you’ll find beaches, a canal and a tidal pool. Or from Morwenstow (21 miles) enjoy a circular walk to the smallest, quirkiest National Trust property, Hawker’s Hut. Dartmoor National Park is also easily accessible, with Lydford Gorge 20 miles away. For the kids, why not try family-run, award-winning theme park The Milky Way (20 miles).

We had a lovely, peaceful stay. Weather was not brilliant but we still managed to get out and about everyday as we were almost equal distance to Bude and Dartmoor, so lots to do. The cottage is well equipped with large bedrooms and plenty of storage. The outside area was nice for our son and he loved going down to the pond to see the fishes.

This is a small rural cottage. Its so quiet and relaxing! We really enjoyed our stay. It is very small in the living/kitchen area but we were hardly home so not worried about that!

A beautiful cottage in the countryside with lovely owners! We had a really peaceful break at Millpond Stables and would definitely recommend booking

House was lovely and clean with everything we needed. Very secluded and quiet, towns/shops/beach all within a short car journey. Owners nice and on hand if anything required. Highly recommend

Fantastic location and friendly owner. We arrived to find 4 gorgeous cupcakes to eat, they were delicious. The cottage was clean and the farm itself was lovely. The pond area was fun to walk around with the kids. The cows were very friendly, almost running to the fence to say hello. We didn't risk touching them in case I was wrong but they may haveRead more loved a pat. The cottage was always warm and welcoming. The facilities were good and the washing machine a huge help where kids are involved. Hide
