  • Duncan

    “A lovely well lit, airy and roomy converted barn, with views over the farm and countryside.”

    Very intelligent and well thought-out conversion. The owners were helpful and friendly without being invasive. The location is ideal for exploring the Tamar valley and Dartmoor, plus a large area of both Devon and Cornwall within an easy 1 hour drive.

The property

This beautiful property, known as The Cobbles, can be found on a farm in the little village of Bere Alston in the English county of Devon.

The Cobbles is a terrific family-friendly option for couples or families, and their two dogs, thanks to its fantastic position connected to the owner's home on 44 acres of farmland in the Tamar Valley AONB, with lovely rural views.

The property features two off-street parking spaces and a delightful, cobbled courtyard, perfect for alfresco suppers on warm summer nights.

Step inside to find a well-equipped kitchen/dining area, perfect for whipping up delicious meals to share at the six-seat dining table while discussing the day's events.

Upstairs, you'll find a welcoming living area with a woodburning stove, a Smart TV with Sky, and sumptuous sofas, ideal for enjoying relaxing evenings with loved ones.

You'll find a double room and a family room with three singles up on the half landing, together with a contemporary bathroom with a bath and an overhead shower.

Explore the village and pick up some necessities at the corner store, try some local beer at the Bere Brewery, have a picnic in Pentillie Park, eat at the Edgcumbe, or have some fish and chips delivered to The Cobbles.

Try The Yard Cafe at the Weir Quay Boatyard or The Drake Manor Inn at Buckland Monochorum.

Afternoon tea at The Horn of Plenty is not to be missed.

Keep going to Tavistock, where you can visit the Robey Trust museum, practise your swing at the excellent Tavistock Golf Club, and peruse the wares at the weekly pannier market.

Be sure to visit Plymouth, home to a wealth of sights and experiences, such as the Plymouth Gin Distillery, Theatre Royal, and Michelin recommended restaurants like the Barbican Kitchen and Fig Tree @ 36 as well as the National Marine Aquarium, The Box, Royal William Yard, and more.

For exploring the very best of Devon, choose The Cobbles.

About the location

BERE ALSTON

Tavistock 6 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.

Bere Alston is a small Devon village in a beautiful location between the rivers Tavy and Tamar, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village was once a thriving port shipping tin from Dartmoor. Just upstream from Bere Alston on the river Tamar is Morwellam Quay, a tiny harbour where half the world’s copper travelled through in the 1860s, and which is now a popular visitor attraction telling the story of copper mining through history. Trains run between Bere Alston and Plymouth, on the picturesque Tamar Valley line, following the river for much of the route. Bere Alston has a village shop and pub and there are plenty of stunning countryside walks. Two National Trust properties in the area are Cotehele, a Tudor manor house and glorious gardens stretching down to the river Tamar and Buckland Abbey, an estate on the river Tavy with craft workshops and family attractions.
