The property

Down Farm Barn is an attractive barn conversion tucked away amidst rolling pastures and wild hedgerows on the edge of the Bere Alston, on the Bere Peninsula.

An AONB positioned mid-way between the Tamar and Tavy River Valleys in West Devon.

This is an area of peace and tranquility, perfect for enjoying the great outdoors and for reconnecting with family and friends in space and total comfort.

A magnificent property of ample proportions, adjacent to the owners’ residence.

Stairs lead up to a large timber door, the entrance into the house and an impressive sitting room with vaulted ceilings and whitewashed stone walls.

A colourful corner sofa is a place where the whole family can relax in comfort around the roaring wood burning stove or enjoy a film on the home cinema system.

A dining area sits adjacent to french doors among a display of tropical greenery and indoor plants, a perfect spot to enjoy the spectacular views that stretch across countryside towards Bodmin moor.

On this level an opulent master bedroom is furnished with a super king-size bed and its own private en-suite, with roll-top bath for unhurried soaks.

There is a further twin room on the first floor.

A oak staircase leads down to the ground floor hallway and utility area leading into a glorious and characterful country kitchen/diner.

Here families can gather around the lovely pine farmhouse table or relax on the leather sofa whilst the cooks of the family prepare meals on the electric AGA.

There are two tasteful and generous ground floor shower rooms and a further twin and king-size double room.

Summer days can be spent in one of four outdoor areas.

Enjoy morning coffee or a quick nap in the pretty garden to the front, furnished with table and chairs.

An enclosed and a safe-haven for children, the inner courtyard (used by owner for access only) leads into an enclosed walled garden ideal for sun-bathing and onto a generous raised deck equipped with BBQ and fire-pit, where children can enjoy watching the geese and ducks in the garden below.

This is by far the best position to experience the magnificent views and sunsets across the distant moorland.

Countryside walks can be accessed from your doorstep and the village of Bere Alston is just over a mile where you will find a pub and a number of good shops serving fresh produce.

The tranquil riverside setting of Bere Ferrers is just over a mile, and public launching at Weir Quay is 2 miles away, where you can take lessons in canoeing or kayaking.

The bustling town of Tavistock, the gateway to Dartmoor is under a 20 minute car journey and Plymouth can be reached in 30 mins.

For days out visit Buckland Abbey and Gardens, Morwellham Quay, Cotehele House all close by.

For those seeking somewhere special for a family gathering or special place to share with friends, Down Farm Barn will provide a truly memorable holiday.
