If you want to get away from the madding crowd, be off the beaten track surrounded by the Devon countryside yet with that something special that a great holiday deserves, Great Ash Barn fits the bill.
This delightful barn conversion is on the edge of an historic family-run farmstead deep in the mid-Devon landscape. The panoramic outlook over open countryside gives you complete privacy and the three bedroom/two shower-room, open plan accommodation is bright and spacious. There is even a boot-room with a hotdog shower for your four-legged friend, complete with dog shampoo and towels. The enclosed garden area is a bonus and there's also an electric vehicle charging point available for your use (payable via app) - how handy is that?
The farm is at the end of a wonderful country lane, with new tarmac all the way and with plenty of passing places. It will set the scene for the tranquility you will find at this lovely detached property, which has peaceful footpaths from the doorstep for you to explore.
This barn has been designed to make the most of the view, with floor to ceiling glass windows and doors in the open plan living/kitchen/dining-area. The gorgeous living space has a large kitchen island so you can have your morning coffee contemplating the view that stretches for miles, and for useful flexibility one of the double bedrooms with its en suite shower-room is downstairs.
You can see for miles from Great Ash Barn with only a tiny glimpse of other farmsteads in the distance. There is a dedicated drive entrance and parking-area, a patio for sitting-out and a raised grassy garden which is fully enclosed.
You are welcome to walk through the fields at Ash Bullayne Farm although do be aware that there will be livestock on this beef and arable farm, which is why the enclosed garden is so reassuring for guests who wish to bring their four-legged friends. If you do want to have an outing without your dog, the owners offer you the use of their large kennel.
