This peaceful detached barn conversion is off the beaten track yet easy to reach, with Dartmoor National Park a short distance to the west and just a few miles from a scenic route through unspoilt countryside to north Devon's coast with its long sandy beaches. The reverse level accommodation offers a ground floor kitchen/dining-room and a convenient downstairs en suite bedroom with French windows to the patio, making the most of the high-ceilinged first floor area for its large sitting-room and for the second en suite bedroom. There are beautiful gardens at Little Barwick and these wrap around the cottage, which is beyond the Owner's house, so that you can enjoy plenty of private feeling outside space.
This is the countryside setting for War Horse, centred around the village of Iddesleigh, with its pretty village green and famous Duke of York pub at the heart of War Horse valley. There are footpaths leading from the hamlet for those who want to forget the car for a while. On the way here you will have been treated to views of the wilds of Dartmoor with its iconic granite tors and a short drive will take you into this famous National Park. The RHS Rosemoor garden is approximately seven miles away, on the road to Torrington. Head for Drewsteignton to visit the National Trust's Castle Drogo or to Fingle Bridge for beautiful riverside walks, or of course up onto the high moors for exhilarating walks, stunning views and all the fresh air in the world. A bit further afield but for a great day out you can head for the north Devon coast where there are endless sandy beaches to be found at Saunton Sands, Braunton Burrows – a Unesco World Heritage Site, Croyde and Woolacombe. Little Barwick is not far from the Tarka Line – a delightful single track railway line that runs between the Cathedral City of Exeter and Barnstaple on the north Devon coast. You can hop on and off the train at one of the many tiny stations along the route, taking in the countryside without having to do the driving, perhaps stopping for a delicious home-made meal and real ale pick-me-up at The Bull and Dragon pub in Meeth near Hatherleigh, at the start, or end, of The Tarka Trail just over five miles away from Little Barwick.
