This detached, beautifully converted barn, spacious and full of character, is ideal for exploring Dartmoor. Surrounded by open countryside, set within the Owners' grounds and approached by an unmade track, magical Dreamcatcher's original features are complemented by modern travertine and oak-floors, granite worktops, solar-heated hot water, under-floor heating, and a power shower. The sitting-area has a vaulted ceiling, and up under the eaves the mezzanine snug includes a cosy day bed and yoga mats. Devon and Cornwall’s dramatic coastline is easily accessible by car, the Eden Project is within an hour’s drive, and nearby Okehampton has a wealth of ancient pubs and contemporary cafes to investigate. Best of all? Returning home to Dreamcatcher – an absolute joy!
Guests can buy local meat and vegetables at the nearby farm shops, as well as good independent butchers in Okehampton itself. The town also boasts two greengrocers with fresh local produce, and three supermarkets including Waitrose and Lidl. There are plenty of coffee shops to enjoy. The Owners provide details of some of the nearby pubs and restaurants that have proved popular with guests, as well as indicating if they are pet-friendly. There is a comprehensive list of dog-friendly beaches for guests to refer to.
With over 40 nature reserves easily accessible from Dreamcatcher, as well as National Trust houses and gardens, there is plenty to fill your time.
