Converted from an 18th century barn, spacious bedroom, lounge with fireplace and ornamental wood burner. Surrounded by fields and woodland in the unspoilt North Devon countryside just 10 minutes from Great Torrington.

Peacefully situated at the end of a private lane in an unspoilt part of Devon. Thorne Farm is home to ducks, hens, a horse and a donkey as well as a wealth of wildlife, such as deer, foxes, hares, barn owls and bats. You can enjoy countryside walks or cycle rides from your doorstep, including along the Tarka Trail which is half a mile away. This long distance path winds through the Torridge valley between Braunton and Meeth. Nearby you can visit RHS Rosemoor Gardens and the historic Cavalier market town of Great Torrington, home to Dartington Crystal. The coastline is only 30 minutes away- choose between the wide sandy beaches of Westward Ho! and Saunton Sands, the spectacular cliffs above Bideford Bay and Hartland Quay, the many tiny coves or the cobbled, harbourside village of Clovelly.

Enter the converted 18th century barn into the main living area with ornamental wood burner, comfortably furnished with Freeview TV, DVD player and dining table and chairs. Follow into the kitchen with gas cooker, microwave and washing machine. Beyond the kitchen is an area with ample space for coats and boots which, with its own external door, is ideal for use as secure cycle storage (with power sockets for charging e-bikes). There is also the benefit of a downstairs WC. Head upstairs to the spacious south facing double bedroom with plenty of room for a cot if needed. There is also a set of 3 foot bunks on the wide well lit landing area, equipped with a stair gate and ideal for children. Along the hall is a bathroom equipped with WC, bath and shower over.

Outside there is a shared guests picnic area, which is 10 yards from the cottage, with ample play space, seating and clothes line. The property is located on a small farm with abundant wildlife, surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside.

This is the most gorgeous setting in the country down a little lane, the barn conversion is so cosy and quiet. A good size home with everything you need including a washing machine. It's not too far away to Torrington which has everything you need. Our hosts were just lovely and left us to it but were there if we needed anything. On our arrival theRead morere was a plate of baking and milk in the fridge and even flowers on the table. Our stay wasn't long enough. Thankyou for sharing your home. Hide
