Situated in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve deep in the Devonshire countryside and found down an unmade track, The Garden House is one of five barns nestling next to Winsford Walled Garden. This impeccable property is a retreat where you can recharge your batteries, enjoy acres of peace and quiet and explore the Owners’ inspirational landscaping – meadows and woodland walks, a summer-house, lake and stream – this eco-friendly semi-detached barn has a ground source heat pump and hot water boosted by solar thermal panels. Large comfortable sofas surround the wood-burner where you can enjoy a movie, a book or have a little nap! In fact, returning to the helter-skelter of everyday life will definitely be a struggle after visiting this magical haven!
The complete serenity of this rural setting is truly enchanting, with an abundance of flora and fauna to be marvelled at within the acres of artfully landscaped grounds. The Owners encourage guests to visit the lake, where a rowing boat is available during the summer months, depending on weather conditions.
