Found in the quiet hamlet of Leigh, Grade I Listed Leigh Barton is partly a designated ancient monument and a fine example of a medieval monastic grange and outbuildings, where the quality of the stonework is testament to what an important property it was in the past. Detached Leigh Barn has its own patio and shares the grounds with the Owner and his gardener, who live across the courtyard. Comfortable and welcoming, Leigh Barn has a spacious oak-floored sitting-room, with a wood-burner, and a modern kitchen/diner. Steps go down to the ground floor bedroom and en suite wet-room. Oak open-tread stairs lead to the enormous master bedroom which has arched windows, exposed beams and a contemporary en suite bathroom.
Extensive gardens are under development with the help of the resident gardener. All is available for the enjoyment of guests. The history of this ancient site is really quite fascinating and the Owner, when at home, is always delighted to show guests around. Originally the site of a fortified medieval farmhouse and a grange of nearby Buckfast, it now includes the south, west and north ranges of the house and a gatehouse in addition to buried remains beneath the Grade I Listed house. However, if this unique piece of English architectural history is not quite your thing, Leigh Barn is just gorgeous, sitting in the courtyard beyond the main house with plenty of room for a family or two couples to enjoy a relaxing holiday. And, of course, the South Hams has so much to offer visitors with glorious beaches, exhilarating clifftop walks and numerous pretty villages full of thatched cottages and welcoming pubs. Nearby Kingsbridge is a busy little town and has an eclectic selection of shops, two supermarkets and restaurants, or further afield the historical naval town of Dartmouth is always worth a visit.
