L93 - Leigh Barn
About the home
just over a mile from Churchstow, in the quiet farming hamlet of Leigh, two attractive cottages stylishly converted from former barns. Once owned by Buckfast Abbey, this Grade I listed farmstead is said to date back to the 13th cent., and the friendly, knowledgeable owners (who live next door) are pleased to show you around the ancient lodging ranges with their Great Hall and the gatehouse tower (Nat. Monument status) which make up this fascinating, late medieval farmstead.
The cottages (and farmhouse) share a drive (electric gates) and face each other over a small courtyard/parking area. They are smart and welcoming with a clever combination of original features (high beams, wood floors) and modern comforts. Peaceful location, pretty villages and beautiful coast nearby.
Leigh Barn is detached and has its own sheltered sitting-out area (table/chairs, barbecue) at the side, looking over the owners' parkland. Comfy living room (woodburner, TV/DVD); at one end, step up to neat cream fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, fridge-freezer) with slate floor, granite worktops and door to sitting-out area; at the other end, 2 shallow steps down to slate-floored bedroom with twin beds (zip-linkable to 6' double), en suite shower-room (wet-room suite) and door to drive. From living room, open tread oak stairs up immediately into enormous double bedroom with lovely old arched windows, exposed stonework and beams high into the ceiling, sitting area (sofa/chair, TV) and smart en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). No children under 5.

The West Country / Devon region
The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.
Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton's long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth's beach and Salcombe's location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don't need to be brash; Bigbury's huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.
Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area's heart; Plymouth – the West Country's biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area's edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.
The Kingsbridge / Churchstow area
Churchstow: little village with fine church, good children-friendly pub (former church house), PO/shop and bakery, 2 miles from Kingsbridge. The sea/beaches at Thurlestone or Bantham, 3½ miles; Salcombe, 7.
