    Mr Peet

    “For us, The Music Room was probably the most beautiful and unique accommodation that we have stayed in and Jo and Nick the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them and we were made very welcome.”

    We gather that the building itself was originally converted to a music room in the 19th century and Jo and Nick have restored and furnished it beautifully. The grounds that it is set in are also stunning and we were encouraged to explore freely and enjoyed meeting their flock of sheep and walking the public foot paths that run through the property. ...

    We gather that the building itself was originally converted to a music room in the 19th century and Jo and Nick have restored and furnished it beautifully. The grounds that it is set in are also stunning and we were encouraged to explore freely and enjoyed meeting their flock of sheep and walking the public foot paths that run through the property. It is an ideal location from which to discover the surrounding inland and coastal villages, towns and resorts but still have total tranquility and to truly hear the birds sing. We highly recommend The Music Room and intend to return in the future.

The property

A mile from Aveton Gifford, 300 yards down a tree-lined track off a lane, three very special places to stay within handsome former farm buildings: an airy converted barn (L248), a barn converted into a gallery (L191) overlooking meadows and a remarkable Grade II listed former music room (L249).

A large, pretty, enclosed suntrap courtyard is shared with the friendly owners.

Just outside the courtyard, a lawned walled garden (also enclosed) with camellias, fig and walnut trees, leading to another garden with pond (unfenced) and 6 grassy acres with big wildlife pond (fenced), vast lawn for picnics and croquet, picnic table, benches (terrific long views) and big trees to sit under, inviting you to rest, read or just enjoy the silence and let your mind wander (children should be supervised).

Heating by biomass boiler using wood from local, sustainable woodland.

Spring water.

Arrival after 4pm.

A peaceful, curative oasis, good for ‘taking it easy’ The Music Room is magnificent: detached, huge and wonderfully romantic, once home to concerts and recitals.

Three steps up into open-plan living/dining/kitchen (46' x 19') with vaulted stucco ceiling, four massive arched windows with stained glass border the length of the room generating light and colour, wood floor (rugs), woodburner, TV/DVD/Blu-ray home cinema projector with surround sound, piano, iPod dock; smart kitchen area (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric oven/induction hob, espresso coffee maker); step up to bathroom (suite, 4' bath with shower over).

The bedroom is the stage (3 steps up) with 5' four-poster bed, stunningly presented and lit.

No children, except pre-crawling babies.

A stunning and extraordinary place to escape to, any time. Aveton Gifford: old village (pub, PO/shop) beside the River Avon where it becomes tidal.

Within 5 or 6 miles are several villages (Bigbury, Bantham, Thurlestone) on an excellent and varied stretch of coast: sandy beaches, coves, cliffs, golf courses, the Avon estuary (fishing, birds), pretty thatched-cottage village centres.

Kingsbridge, 4 miles.
