Description

'Oakleaf Barn' is the perfect getaway for a family of four, or two couples wishing to find a very roomy retreat in a peaceful rural setting. Full of character and yet with all the features you'd expect in a modern barn conversion—central heating, Rayburn cooker, log burning stove and solar PV electricity—you'll be warm and cosy all year round in this beautifully-appointed holiday home.

Downstairs off the hall is a huge and superbly kitted-out kitchen/dining-room with cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Then there's a separate utility-room with washing machine; and off the hall, a cloakroom with WC and wash-basin. Also on the ground floor is a roomy bedroom with 'zip and link' (twin or 6' double) beds, complete with adjoining en-suite with toilet, wash-basin and shower.

Upstairs you'll find the extremely large but cosy, characterful sitting-room with TV, DVD player, CD player and wood-burner. Then across the landing

Upstairs you'll find the extremely large but cosy, characterful sitting-room with TV, DVD player, CD player and wood-burner. Then across the landing is Bedroom 2 with 5-foot double bed complete with en-suite bathroom equipped with toilet, bidet, wash-basin and a bath with hand shower attachment and shower cubicle.

All the rooms upstairs and down have south-facing windows to give them a sunny aspect with views over the fields.

Outside you have your own private patio to take in the sun, complete with barbecue and parking space for two cars. Walk through the gate and you have a further 20 acres of fields, woods and a stream to explore. There's plenty of wildlife to see, from the buzzards wheeling overhead to the badgers that come out at dusk and the occasional fox slinking across the meadow. On clear winter nights you'll be astonished by the dark skies which provides a fantastic view of stars which cannot be seen in other parts of the UK.

Oakleaf Barn is a great place to relax and a superb central location to explore Dartmoor (15 mins) and the North Devon and North Cornwall coastlines (30 mins).

Arrival time is after 4.00 pm and check out time is before 10.00am

The England region

North Devon is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and the region is known for its mild climate, lush green rolling landscape and stunning wildlife. There are no cities; just occasional sleepy market towns and, with quirky names and equally quirky chocolate-box views, inland villages characterised by winding streets of ancient thatched cottages, and no end of breathtakingly picturesque fishing villages round the coast. Most settlements are served by old pubs steeped in history and local memorabilia where you can hob-nob with the very friendly locals, or partake in delicious freshly served food, including the famous Devon cream tea. To see what's on offer you'll need a car—but no worries, driving is still an enjoyable adventure round here, like it was in the 50s and 60s. And there's lots to see.

The area is known for the many stunning gardens which are green and floriferous. Try an on-line search for some of these well known names: 'RHS Rosemoor', 'Docton Mill Gardens'; 'Winsford Walled Garden'; 'Marwood Hill'; 'Hartland Abbey'; and 'Buckland Abbey'. And for something more modern and architecturally stunning, the internationally famous 'Eden Project' is a eye-opening place for a day out.

For those wishing to take in great history and geography, the region abounds with more than its fair share of National Trust properties, from the foreboding, granite 'Castle Drogo', to the fascinating 'Finch Foundry' with its working water wheels and metal working demonstrations. There's also the stately 'Arlington Court'; King Arthur's mystical castle at 'Tintagel'; and 'Lydford Gorge', complete with Victorian walkways around a rushing river that tumbles off Dartmoor.

For the adventurous there's walking on Dartmoor with guide, sailing on either the picturesque 'Roadford Resevoir' or 'Upper Tamar Lake'; and bike hire to cycle along the long and traffic-free 'Tarka Trail'. For those who like wildlife (don't forget your binoculars) you can visit the many reserves run by Devon Wildlife. Last there's also no end of opportunities to fish; from fly-fishing for trout to hooking some really big carp (40lb +) in the many local fishing venues (nearest 10 mins away).

For eating out, we have numerous local pubs serving good plain fare (several within 12 mins) and a sprinkling of 'gastro pubs' with restaurants, such as the 'Rydon Inn' at Holsworthy (15mins). And for those wishing to try something special, why not push out the boat with lunch or dinner at a top Michelin-starred restaurant such as 'Gidleigh Park' at Chagford (45 mins)?

This is a region with bags to do and experience.

Beaworthy

Oakleaf Barn nestles in the most sparsely-populated area in the region—no 'rush hour' here—equidistant between the rolling moorland of Dartmoor (15 mins*) and the great beaches of the North Devon and Cornish coast, famed for its delightful fishing villages, cliff walks and sandy surfing beaches (nearest, 30mins). On the doorstep we have Winsford Walled Garden (10mins); Halwill Nature reserve (8 mins); the North Devon Alpaca Park (18 mins); and Cookworthy Forest with its cycle network (16 mins).

Dark skies are guaranteed as the nearest city is 45 miles away; you'll be stunned by what you can see from your patio, particularly on clear autumn and winter evenings (if you don't own a pair, why not buy or borrow a pair of binoculars or telescope to bring with you?).

For your provisions we are blessed with 2 Waitrose supermarkets: in Holsworthy (20 mins) and Okehampton (15 minutes); each having a Co-op supermarket as a near neighbour.
