Stylish and charming reverse level barn conversion located on a small working farm on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Payhembury, offering beautiful views and wood burning stove

A high quality barn conversion set in a tranquil courtyard in the heart of Devon. Situated on a small beef and sheep farm, it’s the perfect spot for families, walkers and nature lovers alike. The quaint village of Payhembury is a short walk away via country lanes and is home to a pub and community shop. Enjoy a picnic while the children play on the shingle beach by the river or relax and sing songs around the firepit. The farm also hosts the village cricket club, with pitch for hire and a bar and BBQ on match nights. The barn is ideally placed for those wishing to explore the Jurassic Coast and the area’s abundance of pretty towns and villages.

Adjoining a second similar barn, a private pathway and three steps lead up to the main entrance. Enter into the spacious hallway with WC and separate utility room with washer/dryer, which leads into the bright and airy lounge/diner. The inviting lounge area has a wood burner making it the perfect place to unwind in front of the TV or watch a DVD after a day spent exploring. Leading on from here, is the stylish kitchen area which is well-equipped with luxury appliances, including a range style electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine. Enjoying beautiful views over the rolling hills and the accommodation arranged to get the best out of them, you can be sure to enjoy a culinary masterpiece here.
