Gorgeous Haretor Barn is surrounded by idyllic Dartmoor countryside, with breathtaking views as far as the eye can see and situated on a pretty farmstead where you and your four-legged friends will be made most welcome. Beautifully converted with oak floors and exposed beams, Haretor Barn is the perfect getaway retreat for either family or friends and from the moment you drive down the tree-lined avenue, you will realise you have arrived somewhere very special.
To the front of the barn a pretty, enclosed front lawn welcomes you and you can sit on the garden furniture and enjoy the tranquil outdoors with your morning coffee or perhaps evening aperitif! Next door Foxtor Barn (4925) is separated by a wall and gate and although the owners are conveniently on hand should you need them, your privacy is ensured here. Through the front door, the open plan living space is furnished in warm, neutral tones, seamlessly mixing beautiful furnishings with contemporary style. Double height ceilings enhance space with a Velux window adding natural light. Why not sit and relax on the comfy sofa watching the colours change from dawn to dusk on the moors, the perfect holiday pastime! When the sun sets, perhaps gather around the Smart TV with Freesat to watch the latest movies, a DVD player is also available. The traditional kitchen table is the ideal place to plan your day ahead or perhaps chat whilst the chef prepares a culinary masterpiece! The well-designed kitchen has everything you will need including the obligatory Nespresso Artisan Kitchen Aid coffee machine.
Downstairs two pretty bedrooms await with dreamy furnishings and beautifully decorated. Bedroom one is gorgeous, dressed in pretty pastel shades, this really is a room with a view. Conveniently this room can be made up as either two singles or a super-king size double, giving you the flexibility to choose. Bedroom two has a king-size bed, with an exquisite brass bedstead and luxury linens, and an en suite shower-room for a refreshing shower after a day of hiking. The family bathroom can also be found on this floor, so no queuing here for a shower!
Outside the calm tranquility of Dartmoor enfolds. Over the drive a garden area with seating and a built-in barbecue welcomes you to enjoy al fresco dining with the most stunning views. This area is shared with Foxtor Barn which adjoins Haretor Barn and offers extended families or groups of friends separate abodes should you be seeking two places to stay, side by side, in this dreamy location.
Dartmoor is a walker's delight, with miles of trails over moorland, through forest and secluded glades - you will never be short of places to discover. Cyclists too will enjoy adventures from the doorstep and bikes can be stored in the stables on site. For horse riders there is a choice of stables close at hand so a spot of trekking might be on the cards. With wide open spaces and frequent clear skies, it's no wonder Dartmoor is currently bidding for official status of Dark Sky Park, the perfect place for star gazing. Lydford is a pretty village only two miles away and home to iconic Lydford Gorge, owned by the National Trust and well worth a visit for its dramatic steep-sided wooded gorge. A little further afield the market town of Tavistock is ideal for stocking up on local produce and the pannier market which takes place on Tuesday and Saturdays is a great place to shop. However you plan to spend your time, Haretor Barn is a place you will dream of returning to year after year.
