This gorgeous detached property will surpass expectations in all respects. Created from an original farm building on an historic farmstead, The Cow Shed excels itself in the attention to detail throughout. The flagstones through the ground floor have under-floor heating and the French windows from the living-room to the wide terrace can be flung open to celebrate the fabulous panoramic view – and beyond it you have full use of a beautiful meadow that stretches out before you. From the design of the kitchen, the furniture and fittings, through to the sumptuous bed linens in the spacious first floor bedrooms, everything speaks of the love and care that has gone into this property – a perfect balance of character and contemporary style.

The cottage has an unspoilt view of rolling countryside stretching out in front of it and is in a private setting beyond the Owners’ farmhouse on the edge of the village of Exbourne. This location is ideal for setting off to explore Dartmoor National Park or for enjoying the wide open spaces of north Devon’s exhilarating sandy beaches, whatever the time of year. Your four-legged friends will love these outings and the outside space at the cottage is such a bonus too. The village has a friendly CAMRA pub just a short five minute stroll along the lane, and there is also a great community-run village shop and cafe. Okehampton is the nearest town for supplies, there is a Waitrose supermarket, but in this lovely rural area you will come across some wonderful farm-gate stalls for the freshest of locally produced goodies.
