Property code: HILOW

Tasteful barn conversion situated on the owner’s farm, close to the attractive town of South Molton, and within easy reach of the Devon coast.

This cottage enjoys a peaceful rural location on the owner’s farm. Just three miles away is the town of South Molton, which, as well as having a range of shops and twice-weekly market, is home to the world’s largest exhibition of honey bees at the Quince Honey Farm where you can purchase a variety of artisan products from their own range. Keen walkers will enjoy the fact that Exmoor is just a short drive away, whilst the towns of Bideford and Barnstaple are both within easy reach, each offering a range of shops, cafes, and restaurants.

This attractive converted barn offers upside-down style accommodation, with the first-floor living area being accessed by a set of external stairs. This open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is spacious and light, with the two distinct areas being separated by stairs leading to the ground-floor bedrooms. The lounge area has comfortable sofas, a TV and DVD. On the other side of the space, the dining table comfortably seats four, whilst the country-style kitchen is well-equipped with an integrated oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Downstairs there are two bedrooms: one with a super-king-size bed (which can be made up as a twin on request) and a TV. The other is a twin room also with a TV. The bathroom is also on the ground floor, offering a shower-over-bath and WC.

Outside, the property has a good-sized enclosed garden which is mainly set to lawn, with a private hot tub, patio with seating and a BBQ. Guests are welcome to use the shared children’s play area and also the adjoining field. There may also be the opportunity to meet the resident horses, with the owner’s supervision. There is plentiful parking directly to the rear of the property.

A lovely property in a great location for accessing north and south Devon. Nigel couldnt do enough for us and even allowed our toddler to meet one of the horses, Benjamin. The hot tub was a great addition for us, which we used everyday, even in the rain. Thank you for a lovely holiday, we would love to come back.
