Nestling in a completely rural and tranquil valley you will find the stunning Fern Barn, part of the Wood Farm estate. This beautiful barn offers the utmost in style, luxury and splendour throughout. All complemented by shared access to a fabulous indoor heated swimming pool and games-room.
Fern Barn has been stylishly designed to ensure that the arrangement of the barn takes full advantage of your gorgeous location. The reversed open plan layout enables you to step out of the living area onto your elevated decked patio, where dining al fresco is a must whilst soaking up the sun and the views. Once night falls, retreating into the barn and lighting the glowing wood-burning stove is a great way to end the perfect day.
This beautiful barn is designed with style and luxury throughout, both bedrooms boasting en suite facilities, under-floor heating for that extra touch of comfort along with sumptuous linens and furnishings throughout.
Your location is simply perfect too, as not only do you have the splendour of Wood Farm on your doorstep, you are only 15 minutes from varied coastlines and some of south Devon's glorious sandy beaches; with the icing on the cake being you are only 15 minutes from Dartmoor. Wood Farm offers a wonderful location for relaxing at home or heading out on daily adventures.
The owners live on site in the main farmhouse, which dates back to the 16th Century, with the adjoining barn Beck Barn (4494) and standalone barn Burr Barn (4391) offering further accommodation. The great news is that in this wonderfully tranquil and rural location, you are not alone.
Nestled in this completely rural and tranquil valley, your daily activity options are endless. Whether it's walking the dog in the open grassland, taking the children for a paddle in the babbling stream which runs through the grounds or having a lazy afternoon in the huge hammock, all this and more awaits. Evenings are equally as special, with the sound of the stream trickling through the valley, babbling on its way to the joyful hoots of owls in the trees, a touch of star gazing in this magical environment is a must, made easy by the lack of light pollution, the night skies are a spectacular sight to see.
You really have the best of both worlds in this beautiful location, as a short car drive will find you in the heart of many of south Devon's most popular villages and towns such as Dartmouth, Brixham, Totnes and Kingsbridge, all offering something very special from eclectic or designer shops, beautiful harbourside restaurants, sandy beaches offering a range of water sports and clifftop walks to name just a few activities at your disposal, making for a great day out for all the family.
Not forgetting the beautiful and breathtaking Dartmoor is also close at hand, boasting the largest and wildest area of open country in southern England with its wild ponies and outdoor adventures, Dartmoor is a must do day out offering something for everyone.
However, walking and exploring from your very own doorstep is a must. Don your walking boots, pop the lead on the dog and hop onto the six mile long public footpath which can be accessed from your door. This delightful walk is a must at any time of the day or night, taking you past numerous pubs and points of historic interest, this walk is another delightful way to enjoy your very special surroundings.
