Description from owner

Description

Great Cleave is the largest of three 4 star cottages at East Underdown. The cottage was once part of a threshing barn which dates from the 17th century. This modern barn conversion of upside down design retains many of its original roof beams and trusses in the high ceilings of the sitting room (15ft to the apex). This creates on one side a double bedroom and the other a gallery which is popular with children. The gallery also has a futon which can be an additional bed. There are 4 double bedrooms, (3 on the ground floor) 3 bathrooms (one is an ensuite shower room), dining/living area which can accommodate up to 16 diners (the capacity of all 3 cottages), gallery seating area, Freeview, DVD, VCR, fully equipped kitchen including range master double oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, woodburning stove (wood provided).

Further details

Smoking is not allowed in bedrooms. We ask smokers to be considerate of others.

Guests must be sufficiently mobile to climb

Location description from owner

The England region

Devon is one of the most popular holiday destinations in all of England. Outdoor activities abound: from walking or cycling the countless trails of the West Country to a lazy day at part of the truly unique seaside. There is plenty to see and do. It is the ideal place to go for families and couples who appreciate something more active and love bicycling around, sailing, walking surrounded by beautiful sceneries, playing golf, surfing and much more. You can always also enjoy the great outdoors and zip through the treetops at the River Dart Adventure Centre or take the rope challenge at Go Ape. Devon is also a perfect place to go if you love festivals. Look out for folk, food and garden festivals as well as vintage car rallies, curious customs to classic operas. Devon buzzes with activity all year round. Devon has also plenty of quality attractions including award winning animal centres like Pennywell Farm, The Big Sheep, Paignton Zoo and the National Marine Aquarium. Alternatively you can travel back in time at Bygones Victorian street or explore one of the many National Trust properties such as Castle Drogo or Buckland Abbey.

Dartmoor National Park is one of the last wilderness areas of Britain -- moorland landscape, wild ponies, ancient settlements -- great walks. Also easy access to Exmoor, and either the rugged seascapes of North Devon and Cornwall or the milder Channel shores of South Devon. 3 miles from Chagford (old stannary town known for its shopping and nearby walks), 10 from Exeter, 8 from Okehampton. We are within 10 miles of three 18 hole golf courses including Bovey Castle. Only an hour from the Eden Project. Children love the Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhampstead (5 miles) and the House of Marbles at Bovey Tracey (12 miles). Five minutes from the last castle built in England -- Castle Drogo. 13 miles from Exeter and Exeter University. On a typical day at East Underdown you could talk a short walk up the road to the ancient stones of Spinster's Rock, lunch at one of the many local pubs, relax with a swim and sauna before cuddling up by the wood burner (or hanging out on the private patio).

“Super property excellent location, great hosts, you cannot ask for anything more.”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2012

We have booked this property for many years which is one of three converted barns run by Tim and Barbara Clark. The setting is idyllic and the hosts are charming always available living on site in a lovely Devon long house opposite the Properties. They are very helpful nothing is too much trouble and are always there when needed. The facilities are excellent a real gem of a place. Dogs are very welcome too.
