Overview

Living Areas

The open plan living area is cosy, large and bright, with floor to ceiling windows along two walls. It comprises a dedicated and well equipped kitchen, a dining area for up to eight, and a spacious sitting area with two sofas, several chairs, a wall fire and a smart TV. The underfloor heating is the cherry on the cake, keeping the barn toasty and toes warm even in the deepest mid-winter.

The Kitchen is bright and modern with a wonderful range cooker with a six gas burner hob and two electric ovens. There is also dishwasher; microwave; an electric kettle; a toaster; a 300 litre upright fridge-freezer; a Nespresso machine; a milk frother; and heaps of cupboard space for your food items. Filtered water is provided directly from a Brita water tap. And the cupboards are jammed full of all the saucepans and utensils you’ll need to cook, bake and roast feasts for your family and friends.

The Dining Area has a very large and solid dining table with plenty of room for eight – though you could comfortably squeeze a couple more on (extra chairs available on request). Seating is on stylish Ercol Windsor chairs, with a carver chair at each end of the table. And with piles of crockery and cutlery, this really is a great space for entertaining.

The Sitting Area has two comfortable three seater sofas to spread out on and a variety of armchairs and stools arranged around a large and impressive coffee table made from a vintage farm door. A log-effect  electric fire is set in the wall, should instant heat be required, and a 50″ High Definition smart TV should keep everyone entertained if you can agree on what to watch. Free Wifi is provided via high speed broadband.

There is a fully equipped laundry and drying room (vital on Dartmoor) with a sink, washing machine, tumble dryer and massive ceiling mounted drying rack.

The double height games room is impressive, nestled under high exposed vaulted beams and open to the  thatch, there is table tennis, a pool table and a darts board to keep you amused on rainy days, and a variety of indoor board games and jigsaws available.

 

And outside, through handsome oak bi-fold doors, is the enclosed Patio Courtyard. It’s a lovely place to lounge in a deck chair, or read a book under the parasol. And with an oversized gas fired barbeque, it’s wonderful for getting the family together to dine al fresco after a day exploring the moor or the local beaches. A large hardwood table easily sits eight people and, in tandem with the chef’s kitchen indoors, you’ll have no problems feeding a small army.
