Affeton Barton is the greater part of this historic Devon longhouse. It is filled with character, has a huge private garden, tennis court and seasonal open air swimming pool.
There is a wonderful farmhouse-style kitchen, with all brand new appliances and fittings following an extensive renovation programme throughout the property.
The sitting-room with its wood-burning stove is at the heart of the house. There is plenty of comfortable seating for you all to relax.
This is the open air unheated swimming pool (open during June, July and August). It is fenced but please supervise children at all times.
The tennis court is just off to the side of your dedicated garden.
Of course a kitchen in a property like this would not be complete without an Aga. There is an electric oven and hob as well.
The kitchen is tiled throughout. The back door - your initial entrance door - is in the far right corner of the room.
Whilst very much contemporary, the kitchen suits Affeton Barton very comfortably, bringing modern day living to an historic property.
Another view of the sitting-room which has cosy clusters of sofas and armchairs and so a great gathering room for all the family.
The wood-burning stove is a real focal point in this room - as is the alcove stacked full of logs for you.
No one will be short of a space to snuggle up after a day out in the fresh air exploring this totally unspoilt part of Devon.
A grand staircase leads to the first floor bedrooms and bathrooms.
The staircase is a feature in its own right and really gives you a feel for the grandeur of this exceptional property.
There is even space on the landing for a quiet reading area. The door to the right leads to Bedroom 4.
This is the master bedroom - facing to the front of the Barton with views over the gardens and the valley beyond.
The master bedroom has a brand new en suite bathroom.
This is Bedroom 2. This room faces into the original courtyard of the farmstead.
Another view of Bedroom 2.
This is Bedroom 3, facing out to the back of the Barton.
Another view of Bedroom 3. Spacious and bright.
There are two shower-rooms for use by guests sleeping in Bedrooms 2 and 3. These two shower-rooms link together, useful for a family stay, but also have doors to the landing.
This is Affeton Castle - you can just see the Barton to the right of the photograph. The castle gardens are beautiful and guests are welcome to explore. You have your own private garden too of course.
This is the view from the side window of the master bedroom - how stunning to be able to see a real-life castle!
This extra feature is so useful for muddy dogs and boots. This covered space links the parking in the courtyard to the kitchen door. The door at the end leads straight out to the garden.
Just off the courtyard, next to the covered boot room area is this lovely stone barn for you to use as you wish. This barn also leads out to your garden.
The cobbled courtyard with plenty of parking space dedicated to guests at the Barton.
This is the view over the castle grounds to the valley beyond.
This is the back of the farmhouse.
This is the entrance that you will use on arrival. The red door leads to your own little barn and the white door to the covered boot room area.
Steps from the covered area take you down into the garden.
