  • “Blissful luxury”

    The Cider Barn provides an extremely spacious luxurious sanctuary in the midst of rolling Devon countryside. ...

    The Cider Barn provides an extremely spacious luxurious sanctuary in the midst of rolling Devon countryside. To come home from a long day to the comfortable sofas and warmth of the log burner soothed the senses. Underfloor heating throughout ensured the large rooms remained comfortably warm, whilst the underfloor heating and large towel radiators in the bathroom provided a delicious extra warmth. There are many spaces to have ‘time-out’ from Other guests if need be where you can relax undisturbed, such as the upstairs sofa room with glorious floor to ceiling glass allowing you to become immersed in the garden and watch the rabbits. As well as the main sitting room with the log burner there is a sofa room between the kitchen and the sitting room which provides a good space for children to play and watch tv, the generous sofa engulfed the four of us in various horizontal positions - 3 of whom are well over 6 feet tall. The kitchen is large with a two oven Rangemaster with 5 ring induction hob which coped well with two large family reunion dinners. This is complemented by a large dining table which we managed to comfortably sit 12 around by commandeering the bathroom stools. There is an ample selection of blue and white crockery, mats and knives and forks. Fridge freezer is half and half. The two double bed bedrooms are breathtaking in size and comfort. The master, with it’s walk in wardrobe and bath with shower over ensuite added to the feel of luxury and spaciousness. The twin room is equally comfortable with ensuite. The conversion has been thoughtfully and tastefully completed, with touches true attention to detail brings. All fixtures and fittings are top quality, no expense has been spared. There was always ample hot water. The flat access, and ability to get the car close to the front door make it very accessible for elderly and infirm visiting guests. Equally, the main living area being on the flat ground floor made it safe for very young children and easy for the elderly to manoeuvre around and use the downstairs bathroom . The bedrooms are upstairs. A mile further down the road is a very pretty beach with a car park. The working farm is unobtrusive, the occasional tractor or truck went past the kitchen windows but as all windows have movable blinds or shutters this did mot infringe on our privacy. The Cider Barn rose to the challenges we presented it with and across the generations many happy memories were made.

The property

A mile from Down Thomas, quietly tucked away down a private farm drive, a stylish and spacious cottage with beautifully planted, enclosed suntrap garden (table/chairs) behind.

Newly converted from an attached barn on the owners’ small traditional working farm (arable, beef cattle), it was once the dairy and cider farm for Langdon Court estate, a Domesday manor of Wembury.

The original manor is now a country house hotel (bar/restaurant open to non-residents), just a 350 yard stroll away; Wembury Beach and Coast Path, around a mile.

Three shallow steps down to entrance and tiled hall.

Step down to chic country-style kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric range-style cooker with 5-ring induction hob) with timber worktops, slate floors, glass-topped feature well and big pine dining table.

Double doors to snug/TV room (smart TV) with huge original pine door to generous living room (woodburner, smart TV/DVD/PVR, iPod dock) with glazed door to drive.

Ground-floor shower-room (suite).

Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier).

Stairs up to landing area (armchairs, glazed doors to garden) and three bedrooms, all beautifully furnished with high ceilings, exposed apex beams and shuttered windows with long views over rolling farmland - two huge doubles (5' oak beds), one with dressing room and en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), the other with en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin with en suite shower-room.

Much thought has gone into this superbly converted barn; a great spot for exploring coast, countryside and city with footpaths from the door. Down Thomas: tiny village (PO/shop, pub), a mile from a sandy beach and nearby golf course at Bovisand Bay, and 5 miles south of the centre of Plymouth with its theatre, cinemas, shops, Hoe, Barbican and history.
