Tucked away down a secluded lane in a beautiful corner of south Devon lies Willows Rest, a relaxing haven for all ages and occasions. This stunning 300 year old Grade II Listed barn effortlessly fuses bespoke stylish interiors with original features. Vaulted beams and exposed stonework marry delightfully with a hint of luxury to create an exquisite self-catering abode that you will never want to leave. The thoughtful design doesn't stop inside, as snuggled within the grounds you will find secluded gardens, an indoor heated swimming pool, a luxury cedar hot tub and a wooden play-area for the little ones.
Willows Rest is the perfect place to escape the hubbub of everyday life. With spacious yet cosy living areas, sumptuous bedrooms and enchanting gardens, it is made for relaxing getaways and allows you to breathe a little deeper from the moment you arrive.
If you can drag yourself away from the beautiful surroundings, you will find the magic of south Devon at your fingertips. Head to Bantham, or one of the many golden sandy beaches, explore the wild and dramatic Dartmoor, or stroll round the bohemian market town of Totnes and other picturesque local towns and villages. The property has been designed and landscaped to give you the privacy needed to feel a world away from everyday life, but if you should need help planning your adventures, the super-friendly owners live behind the property and are always happy to help with suggestions and ideas to help you make the most of your holiday.
Located down a private country lane, with only a working farm at the end, Willows Rest is the perfect piece of Devon life. The odd tractor passing by is part of the countryside charm, but you will be guaranteed a peaceful and stylish home-from-home for all the family to enjoy. In the summer months throw open the windows and enjoy the abundance of outdoor space, and in the winter snuggle down in front of the roaring wood-burner after a day exploring the delights of the local area.
Your days can be as busy or as laid back as you wish, with something for everyone, you'll never be short of things to do! Outside, the little ones can run wild around the wooden play-area, chase butterflies or enjoy a splash in the heated pool, exactly as children should, leaving the grown-ups free to sink into the hot tub or just relax with a good book. As the sun starts to fade, enjoy an al fresco barbecue whilst the children run off their last ounces of energy in the fully enclosed garden.
A beautiful home designed to keep everyone happy, whatever the weather, whatever the time of year, it's not every day you come across a holiday destination like Willows Rest. With the perfect blend of luxury and homeliness, relaxation and adventure, you will be planning a return visit before you've even left.
