Top Barn is luxurious oak beamed….

Recently refurbished… suitable for 4 people. Set in an old cider orchard and surrounded by some of the most beautiful natural countryside in South Devon, our  converted Self Catering Barn is idyllically situated and together with our supremely comfortable accommodation.

The Top Barn living room is bright and sunny with woodburner, and floor to ceiling French windows leading out to a large patio complete with garden furniture.

The kitchen, leading off the living room, is arranged in a galley style with plenty of work surfaces and cupboards, as well as Smeg Fridge/Freezer and Dualit appliances.

When you venture upstairs in the Top Barn you will be greeted by both the light and airy bedrooms which have beamed and vaulted ceilings and are both en-suite. The master bedroom overlooks the orchard and has superb views all along the valley through the glass fronted gable end.
