Property code: HOBAR

This stylish yet traditional property nestles in an acre of land in the steep slopes overlooking the beautiful Exe Valley. This gem of a Barn is near one of the county’s most picturesque villages.

This area is renowned for its agricultural land and denoted by the local rich, dark red soil. Bickleigh’s five-arched bridge spans the River Exe and is reputedly the inspiration for Simon & Garfunkel’s, ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’. Bickleigh Mill is an historical 18th century working mill, now redeveloped into a popular and exciting rural shopping, eating and recreational destination. Railway enthusiasts will enjoy the Devon Railway Centre and Model World housed in the Victorian station buildings, ideal for young children.  On rainy days, take the family to Wall in the Hall for indoor climbing, only 10 minutes from this property.  The town of Tiverton is just four miles away, which offers a pretty canal offering boat trips, while a little further is the historic cathedral city of Exeter. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the location, with the coast within an hours drive.

On entering this impressive  property, a couple of steps down will take you into the welcoming and cosy lounge. With TV/DVD, plenty of comfy seating and a traditional wood burner, this room is perfect for a spot of relaxation. The exposed beams and traditional flooring and underfloor heating are also a feature throughout this stylish barn conversion. Other original features include arrow-slit windows and an original threshing wheel. Heading into the spacious kitchen/diner, which is accessed via a step up, you will find a delightfully situated dining area, ideal whether you’re sitting down to a special meal or grabbing a snack. The elegant and attractive kitchen is well-equipped with Aga (with a built-in electric module for those not used to cooking on an Aga), dishwasher, a large fridge and large freezer, microwave and large bi-folding glass doors leading outside. The washer/dryer is located in the utility room. There is also a shower room, complete with WC on the ground floor. Heading upstairs via the wooden tread staircase, you will find three bright and comfortable bedrooms. There’s a super king-size with TV/DVD and an en-suite shower room with rain shower, twin sinks and WC, a second super king-size with TV and en-suite with double shower enclosure and WC, and a twin room with TV/DVD. You will also find a bathroom complete with free-standing slipper bath with hand-held shower and WC. The property offers a range of outside and inside games

Stepping outside, you can relax at the end of an enjoyable day sitting back in the patio area with garden furniture, BBQ and sun loungers, or you could wander amongst the fruit trees.

A really nice stay in rural Devon, lovely property with good facilities. We liked playing the Jenga and Connect 4 in the garden while cooking on the BBQ.

This is a spacious and well equipped property in a beautiful location. The garden is a great place to relax in stunning countryside. There are many places to visit nearby on Exmoor and the coast with lots of walks and cycling tracks to explore. We enjoyed meals in Bickleigh and Cadeleigh.

We had a fantastic holiday, the house is nice and the huge enclosed garden was great for the dog. The state of repair of the furnishings was a bit disappointing but didn't cause a problem. For example, 5 dining chairs for a house that sleeps 6 seems a little odd and no mirrors apart from in the bathrooms. We had to use a chair from the garden. The Read morefisherman's cot is average and a reasonable walk, no paths though so keep that in mind with small children. Would recommend but could be better. Hide

Wonderful location and beautiful barn. We loved the area, and it was easy to visit either Exmoor or south coast. Loved Bickleigh Castle and the Mill. The Fisherman's Cot pub was excellent, and pretty location within 10 mins drive.

Lovely comfortable house with beautiful surroundings, so relaxing. The weather was wet and cold so it was lovely to come back to a warm house due to the Aga and underfloor heating. Very spacious and airy and ideal if you just want to get away from it all. Lots of time just spent watching the wildlife and relaxing.
