    “The barn was adequately represented in the online listing and had everything we required.”

    ...

    Although the headroom for upstairs was included in the listing, this could be further emphasised, as it was quite tricky navigating some parts of the rooms...we aren’t particularly tall and bumped our heads a number of times on the sloping ceilings! It was a lovely, peaceful location and ideal if you want a rural escape. The caretaker was really good at contacting us and made sure we had everything we needed, including offering travel cots and high chairs for our small children. This makes all the difference as a young family who often have to bring everything but the kitchen sink when going away! All in all, we had a nice stay and enjoyed our time in Devon.

The property

Along a country lane on the edge of the tranquil hamlet of Dunkeswell Abbey, half a barn converted into an interesting, rustic-looking, wood-clad cottage, light and airy inside.

Good-sized garden (table/chairs, barbecue) overlooking the owner’s apple orchard and small field.

Inside, little glass-panelled lobby; pine-floored, L-shaped living/dining room with TV/DVD, iPod dock and French windows to terrace and garden; well-equipped modern kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker) with stable doors to terrace; bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Stairs up to small landing (5'6" headroom), off which two bedrooms under the eaves, both overlooking the garden and with limited clothes-hanging space - a double with low sloping ceilings and Velux window, and a twin with dormer window; loo (5'8" lintel, sloping ceiling).

Outside is a utility room with washing machine, tumble drier, sink and space for your bicycles.

Spring water.

A beautiful, peaceful place in which to relax. Dunkeswell Abbey: sheltered valley hamlet of a few cottages and the ruins of 13th cent.
