A luxurious stay awaits you in this stunning detached grade II listed barn conversion, featuring exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, bespoke staircases, latched doors and original arrow slit feature windows. The former barn, with roundhouse, is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with all modern amenities, yet retains much of its original charm and character.
The impressive 20' oak floored hallway features the original farm shafting used to drive equipment formerly pulled by the horses in the roundhouse. Situated on a working 300 acre organic sheep and arable farm mentioned in the Doomsday Book 1086, you will be a short drive to the famous and popular North Devon coast with sheltered coves and long sandy surfing beaches. Woolacombe offers a long sandy surfing beach and there are also a choice of smaller beaches and sheltered coves as well as the Victorian fishing town of Ilfracombe with beach, fishing trips, day trips to Lundy Island, theatre, marine aquarium, shops, pubs, restaurants and galleries.
