  • Enjoy some fantastic walks from the doorstep across the moorlands
  • Extensive games room and cinema area
  • Tranquil rural location in the beautiful Devonshire countryside
  • A great base for exploring South Devon and Dartmoor
  • One of two stunning contemporary barn conversions
Property code: 47237

One of two, tastefully restored, Grade II listed barn conversions with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, oak flooring and a fabulous games room and cinema area.

Bursting with elegance, this resplendent cottage boasts breathtaking views across Dartmoor National Park and assures an exceptional holiday for its guests. Elevated style, luxurious furnishings and original features both soothe and delight. Its sheer beauty will make it hard to leave, but once you do, you’ll find equal pleasure from its location.

Whether you’re sinking deeper into relaxation in the living area, battling it out over a game of snooker, air hockey or table tennis, or appreciating the garden and surrounding countryside, you can’t escape the beauty of this property. The interior is contemporary yet captivating with wonderful high ceilings, exposed beams, oak flooring and stone walls. Upside-down living means that three of the four bedrooms are located on the lower level, each beautifully designed but with restricted head height due to low beams.

Grab your walking boots, leave the car keys behind, and step out into nature to rejuvenate body and soul. Scenic walks are on the doorstep and with over 300 square miles of vast moorland to explore you won’t be short of routes, just energy! When reserves are low, head to the stannary town of Ashburton (4 miles) for cafes, pubs and tea shops. Or spend time finding your piece of treasure in one of the many antique shops and galleries. An area not short of activities, whether you enjoy golf, horse-riding, fishing, or cycling, this part of South Devon has you covered. And perhaps a little less known but a superb day out is by taking a tour of one of the local vineyards to sample some excellent wines.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely views and walks in the area, large barn ideal for families and groups. Some narrow roads which although could be scary did have passing places. A great time was had by all, only gripe was the dog hairs from previous occupants and grubby doors/windows.
