Spacious five-star barn conversion property set within nine acres of grounds in rural North Devon, and yet within easy reach of local towns and just ten miles from the county’s Atlantic coast.

This property enjoys a lovely location, nestled in the North Devon countryside. Six miles to the north-east of the property is the market town of Great Torrington, where guests will find a good range of shops and eateries. The attractive gardens of RHS Rosemoor are just outside the town, and make a lovely place to spend a day wandering the numerous gardens. The coast is within easy driving distance and offers something for everyone, with family-friendly sandy beaches, breath-taking coastal walks, and quaint fishing villages, such as those at Appledore and Higher Clovelly. For something a little different, the Milky Way Adventure Park, which is just ten miles from the property, offers a range of fun rides and play areas.

This stunning barn conversion makes a great place for enjoying a truly special holiday with family or friends. The main living space is a wonderfully spacious and light-filled lounge/kitchen/diner. At one end of the room, the lounge area has deep, inviting sofas on which to sit back and relax whilst watching the TV and DVD, or perhaps enjoying an evening of great conversation with the cosy wood burner flickering away and a few drinks. Moving towards the other end of this impressive room, with its attractive exposed beams, guests will find the large dining table taking pride of place at the centre of the space. Beyond the dining area lies the kitchen, which is equipped with everything that guests need to make themselves at home, including a Range oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher. Just off from the kitchen, there is a cloakroom with WC, whilst the washer/ dryer is housed separately in a handy utility room. There is a separate smaller lounge room which makes a great space for enjoying some quiet time with a good book, or perhaps challenging a fellow guest to a game of chess. One of the bedrooms is also located on the ground floor, an attractive double bedroom with an en-suite shower and WC, as well as its own TV. Stairs lead from the lounge to the first-floor accommodation, where there are five further bedrooms, all of which have been elegantly styled to create restful, understated spaces in which to relax. Two of these have king-size beds which both benefit from their own TV and en-suite shower rooms with WC. There are then two further rooms, one of whice has a double bed and en-suite shower and WC and the other has twin beds. Finally, there is an attractive twin room on this floor. The main bathroom is a fantastic sanctuary-like space with a bath, separate shower, and WC.

Outside, there is a wonderfully spacious patio which is accessed directly off the lounge that has a range of garden furniture and a BBQ. This area leads onto a private garden that is laid-to-lawn, with plenty of space for children to enjoy playing games. Across the courtyard in front of the property, guests will find the former-stable block which has been converted to create a fun games barn, which has a pool table, table tennis, dart board and table football. There is ample courtyard parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The house was stunning and very clean. There were 11 of us and 3 dogs and we all had plenty of room. Location is ok but not very easy to walk anywhere.

This is a beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean, perfectly equipped with everything you could possibly need. We are a family if 12 adults, one new baby & 3 dogs. We all loved our entire stay there.

We had a four generations family of 13 holiday with ages ranging from 21 months to 80 years. There was plenty of space for us for all and the cottage had everything we needed and more. Would recommend this property for large group holidays.

Probably the best equipped cottage I have stayed in, especially the kitchen. Beds and bedding super comfortable. Games barn was really good and kept the children very happy. Beach a bit of a way but lots of other places to go too so a good position all round.

This was our second stay at Thornewidger Barn with nine adults, two children and two labradors. There is plenty of space for everyone to "do their own thing" or gather as a family for games and entertainment. The games room was ideal for "kids" of all ages. The property is surrounded by countryside views and the sounds of birds. We met the owners wRead moreho are very friendly and ensure that the property is kept "up to scratch".

Just had the best weekend away with friends! The cottage was immaculate and by far the most well equipt holiday cottage we have ever visited! There was nothing that we had to go without! Everything was so clean and such good quality. The games room was a brilliant extra for the evenings and there is so much space so as a large group we could all soRead morecialise together,but also had space to split off into smaller groups for playing games/watching TV etc. We will definitely be back! 5* + 2 more!!
