Set in a quiet courtyard in the heart of the conservation village of Germansweek, this beautifully presented end of terrace barn conversion offers the perfect retreat for discerning guests looking for a tranquil base for exploring Devon and Cornwall. This unspoilt part of Devon offers open farmland and rolling countryside, dotted with delightful villages, traditional pubs and honesty-box stalls in abundance. It is a haven for ramblers, with endless miles of footpaths to explore right on your doorstep, and you only have to venture a little further to discover the breathtaking scenery of Dartmoor National Park or the coastlines of north Cornwall and Devon.
For those who like messing about on the water, take a trip to Roadford Lake where you can try your hand at sailing, windsurfing and kayaking, or maybe a bit of fishing – but if you don't get a bite, don't worry, the market towns of Okehampton, Holsworthy and Launceston are all within easy reach to stock up on your provisions. Lavender Barn has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, so you will feel at home from the minute you arrive. The light and airy kitchen/diner will make meal times a real treat and the cosy sitting-room is the ideal place to relax with the gorgeous comfy sofa inviting you to curl up with a good book, or simply enjoy some precious time together. From the sitting-room you can step out into the garden, which backs onto farmland, and enjoy al fresco dining on the patio or why not simply look skywards and do some stargazing?
