The property

... in a peaceful and secluded setting, a mile from Halwell and 1½ from Harbertonford (PO/shop, pub), two cottages and three superb barn conversions at Bickleigh Farm, all sharing an indoor heated swimming pool (39' x 19' x 3' to 4'6" deep, available 8am to 8pm, closed Tuesday 2pm to 3.15pm and Wednesday 9.15am to 10.30am in term time; occasionally also used by owners' family and friends) with toddlers' splash pool, children’s play area (swings, slides, climbing frame), large trampoline and games room (pool table, table tennis, WiFi). All are on a 300 acre working mixed farm (often lambs, calves and kittens). Conservation walks with wonderful views to Torbay and Dartmoor have been laid out across the farmland and the properties are positioned to each have their own patio and barbecue area, and share large lawns and garden. Professional catering available. These are very special places to stay. 

The Roundhouse
, a magnificent, detached house converted from a barn, has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms with living area and kitchen in an ‘upside down’ arrangement to make the most of huge vaulted ceilings and views over rolling farmland. Adjacent but separate, an annexe (family bedroom with comfy chairs and bathroom) for four.

To the rear, a spacious, private terrace (furniture, gas and charcoal barbecues) for all-day sun, and steps up to a lawn. Grassy meadow area to one side, left to grow wild with flowers and a walnut and fruit trees, and the shared children’s play area and trampoline on the other.

Back door from terrace level to full-height main hall with spectacular ceiling trusses and bridged, half-level landing. Across the full length of the upper floor, either side of the bridged landing (door to terrace off half-landing), large open-plan living room (woodburner, TV/DVD/home cinema system) and enormous kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, gas/electric range-style cooker, American-style fridge-freezer with ice-maker) with oak and granite dining table and designer lighting, and spectacular oak beams and large windows creating a cathedral-like space; utility/boot room (washing machine, tumble drier, second fridge) with back door. At each end of this level are double bedrooms (5' beds with footboards), both with en suite bathrooms (suites, showers over baths). Vertical ladder from living area to galleried mezzanine/den with comfy seating and wonderful valley views. Oak flooring and radiators throughout upper floor, and two sets of stairs (top stairgates) to ground floor.

On ground-floor level, entrance hall and another five large bedrooms – two double (6' zip-linked beds or twin, TV) with en suite bathrooms (suites, one with shower over bath); two twin (footboards) with en suite shower-rooms (suites); and in the beam-ceilinged ‘roundhouse’, 6 steps (handrail) down to the master double (5' bed with footboard, TV) with en suite shower-room (suite) and French windows to front terrace. Children’s den area (part of the hall) with TV/DVD and piano (untuned). Loo.

Exterior door to annexe – a large family room with 5' double bed (footboard), two singles, armchairs, TV, tea/coffee making facilities and large en suite bathroom (suite).

Damages Deposit £250. Arrival after 4pm. A huge, outstanding house.
