Nestled in a gorgeous countryside setting on the Cornwall and Devon border surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, Swift Barn is situated next to Swallow Barn (4586) at Netherbridge Lake and is a delightful place for a holiday with family or friends. The old stone barn has been converted beautifully offering a thoughtfully presented holiday home, whilst still retaining its original charm with the exposed stonework and rustic beams.
The barn has a lovely layout, entering the barn from the courtyard level the entrance hall sits between the two bedrooms with stairs down to a large middle landing where you can access the enclosed patio-area through double-height glazed doors. The lower level offers an open plan living area, the barn floods with light thanks to the clever conversion and thoughtful architecture.
The bright and inviting living and dining-area can be found on the lower level and offers a stylish and well-equipped kitchen with a Heritage range oven. A wonderful warm and welcoming space to spend quality time together around the dining-table. With two comfortable sofas guests will feel warm and cosy snuggling up for an evening around the feature fireplace while watching a family film or playing a game of charades.
Upstairs enjoy a great night's sleep in one of the two comfortable en suite bedrooms, furnished to an exacting standard and with many extra little touches that make you feel settled and able to recharge. The en suite main bedroom has wonderful vaulted ceilings with exposed walls adding a rustic laid back charm with the luxury of an en suite shower-room.
The outside seating-area at the back of the barn is accessed via the glazed back door on the middle landing; an enclosed patio ideal for a spot of al fresco dining, enjoying sunsets and sunrises or simply listening to the birds in song. In the warmer weeks if a barbecue beckons, simply ask the friendly owner who will be happy to provide you with one. This is a truly magical setting for a long holiday or short break so if you are looking for a bit of peace and tranquility, you will certainly find it here.
Swift Barn is one of a selection of fabulous properties at this wonderful location including neighbouring Otter Barn (4582), Badger Barn (4583) and Kingfisher Barn (4584) so if you are looking to holiday as a larger group, you can book all five properties together.
Guests are free to wander the seven acres of shared grounds surrounding the barns to take in the fresh country air and maybe spot local wildlife or your woolly neighbouring sheep who may be grazing quietly in the lakeside paddock. Guests can fish for carp in one of the well-stocked lakes or for those interested in more tranquil pursuits, find yourself a place to sit and just relax in this peaceful setting.
There is something here for guests of all ages and whatever time of the year; enjoy a tasty picnic lunch on one of the tables surrounding the lakes or spend time watching the ducks who share this wonderful location. Take a short walk to the banks of the River Tamar nearby but be sure to bring your walking boots or wellies as when exploring your surroundings or experiencing the delights of Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor the weather cannot be guaranteed!
