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, 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 incredibly romantic, once home to concerts and recitals, brilliantly converted. 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 fitted 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.

The place

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: two sand/surf beaches, coves, rock pools, cliffs, golf courses, the Avon estuary (fishing, birds), pretty thatched-cottage village centres. Kingsbridge, 4 miles.

The Music Room is a fabulous space to be creative, we loved every minute we spent there, playing and singing, relaxing and having fun. There are numerous fantastic coast walks within easy reach by car and local walks too if you want to leave the car behind. Jo and Nick are superb hosts! We had a truly brilliant holiday and will be back to the Music Room in 2018.
