Welcome to Olive Barn, a fabulous barn conversion at the end of a private gravel lane and situated in the foothills of Exmoor, just five miles from the delightful village of Rackenford. Prepare to be enchanted by this single-storey, natural stone building which has been lovingly restored and is the perfect holiday retreat for families or groups of friends looking for a countryside escape.
With double height ceilings, wood floors, oak beams and bi-fold doors this characterful property is a delight. The kitchen is beautifully crafted and has all mod-cons for cooking up a holiday feast, including an induction range and all-important slimline dishwasher to save any holiday squabbles about the washing up! Up three steps, the living-room has bi-fold doors which open out onto the slate terrace with water feature where you can enjoy morning coffee sitting in the sun at the bistro table or snuggle up on the comfy sofas. The dining-area with solid oak table invites the whole family to gather and plan the day ahead.
The hall to the bedrooms has a handy dresser and coat stand, ideal for walking jackets. The superb en suite bedroom has a lovely view of the courtyard and valley beyond. Imagine opening the bi-fold doors and stepping outside into the morning sun, exactly what holidays are made for! A great night's sleep is assured in the super comfy king-size bed and there's even a sofa where you can sit and relax with a good book. The gorgeous en suite has a free-standing iron bath and huge walk-in shower with drench head, ideal after a busy day out and about.
The double room is light and airy with a comfy double bed and the added bonus of patio doors leading to the courtyard. The bunk room will appeal to the children in the party but with three-foot wide beds this room is suitable for both children and adults (please note the top bunk has restricted headroom).
The garden area is the icing on the cake here. With lawned area, patio, fabulous gazebo and terrace, you will want to spend every waking hour outside. So go on, fire up the barbecue and gather the family for al fresco lunch or perhaps a spot of star gazing. However you spend your days, memories made at Olive Barn will last forever.
The pretty village of Rackenford is on your doorstep here, with a village shop and local pub it is a great place to explore. Mighty Exmoor is waiting to be discovered close by, with breathtaking scenery and wild ponies scattered on the moorland, you will be wowed by the beauty of the place. A little further away the town of Tiverton sits on the Grand Western Canal, where 24 bridges cross the river in 11 miles! Tiverton has a great selection of eclectic shops, cafes and inns and is well worth a visit to stock up on your holiday essentials. Wherever you plan to explore, you are assured of a relaxing and tranquil holiday at Olive Barn.
