Our beautiful barn conversion is available to rent, in a secluded valley in the South Hams, Devon. We are ideally situated to access many of the best beaches in the South Hams, with Salcombe, Bantham, Bigbury, Slapton Sands all within half an hour. Coastal walks and country pubs galore. We are ten minutes from the charming estuary town, Kingsbridge, which provides multiple restaurants and cafes, an artisan bakery, grocers, several butchers, an arts cinema plus many more charming gift and furnishing shops.
The property consists of a spacious kitchen-diner, with patio doors opening onto a sunny patio, which leads onto a secluded south-west facing garden. The view consists of rolling hills stretching to the horizon. Two double bedrooms downstairs share use of a shower room with lavatory. Upstairs, our lounge has a high pitched roof with dramatic beams, with a juliet balcony providing more stunning views. The woodburning stove in the lounge guarantees cosy evenings. There is a generous mezzanine floor over the lounge, with a futon bed, providing a fourth private room (if required). Our master bedroom has a super-king sized bed, and again more views. The en suite provides the family bathroom, with large, corner bath and shower over.
This property acts as our main home, so it is furnished to a very high standard of comfort. A true home from home! Sky TV including sports channels, DVD player and selection of films. Well-stocked bookshelves for your perusal. Enjoy this fantastic corner of Devon, far away from the hustle and bustle. We are renting our property while we are travelling for some extended periods, and we are pricing it extremely competitively as a result. We would ask the individuals who choose to rent the property to kindly put out some dried cat food for the two friendly farm cats we have adopted, who live in our garden shed/greenhouse.

The West Country region
The jewel in Devon's crown, the South Hams of Devon is a scenic region to explore. An area of 'Outstanding Natural Beauty' that encompasses picturesque estuaries and a stunning coastline with miles of unspoilt beaches and hidden coves to a lush hinterland that extends to the wild untamed heathland of Dartmoor, there is variety for all. From the richly wooded Dart Valley and the historic deepwater port of Dartmouth all the way to Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island, you can discover the charm of charismatic coastal villages and towns.
Beautiful beaches at Salcombe, Soar Mill, Bantham, Thurlestone, Bigbury, Slapton Sands (all within half an hour's drive). Stunning stretches of coastal walks to explore. For the more sedentary, many fantastic country pubs to relax with good food and drink. Seafood restaurants, for example 'The Oyster Shack' nr Aveton Gifford, or 'The Winking Prawn' at North Sands, Salcombe. The South Devon Chilli farm is 4 minutes drive away. The Avon Mill Garden Centre in Loddiswell is renowned for it's good food and lovely setting. Dartmouth is only 40 minutes from us, likewise Totnes. Kingsbridge is our local town - just 5 miles away, with quaint local shops and great cafes and restaurants available, to meet all your needs.
For the sporting, there is a fishing lake about 5 minutes drive from our house, golf courses at Bigbury and Thurlestone. Sailing at Kingsbridge and Salcombe, sea kayaking and other watersports. Dartmoor is only 7 miles from us - we are pretty much equidistant from the coast to dartmoor.

"Fabulous House, quiet location."
This property is a fabulous base for exploring the surrounding area tho it is off the beaten track which is great if you want peace and quiet for your break. We sat in the garden and the only noise we heard was the noise our kids were making whilst playing in the garden!!
Great size property and suited us down to the ground. Lovely fixtures and fittings and very clean and tidy. Nice size garden and a sun trap.
Will definitely be booking this property again next time I am holidaying in the area.
