"get away from it all" relax, unwind and soak up the peace and tranquillity of the unspoilt north devon countryside in this charmingly restored property. Formerly built c1500 as a grain store and latterly with attached stabling for the working shire horses of the day, it has been tastefully and carefully converted to provide all the modern day conveniences and comforts whilst still retaining many of the original stone and beam features.
this central rural country retreat in the heartland of devon is set in a 15 acres, part stream bordered estate, surrounded by meadows, amidst trees and hedgerows that devon is so known for, which in springtime are bedecked with wild primroses and violets. The location of this hidden gem offers relaxing surroundings and walks "far from the madding crowds" and, set midway between the wild expanses of dartmoor and exmoor and the rugged coastlines and sandy beaches of the north and south devon coasts which makes it an ideal base to explore these along with all the other local popular attractions. Enjoy the local, beautiful gardens of rhs rosemoor or try your skills at fishing, golf, horse riding and even flying, all of which are available locally and at the end of your day in the warmer months relax, recharge your batteries and plan your next day's adventures 'alfresco' style whilst enjoying views over the countryside. In the chillier months the woodburner provides a cosy romantic atmosphere in which to relax and catch up with some reading or simply chill with your favourite tipple.
