Step up onto the first floor and enter straight into the welcoming king-size bedroom; as well as a comfortable bed, this layout provides a relaxing day bed and a couple of chairs enjoying far-reaching views to the Haytor Rocks on a clear day.
The bedroom also benefits from a luxury en-suite bathroom, a refreshing white suite with the choice of a bath and a walk-in shower cubicle.
Step down into the charm-filled open-plan living area, dominated by stunning exposed beam work and featuring an alluring woodburning stove, so you can enjoy Mr Bear's Hayloft at any time of year.
Choose to sit on the snug sofas around the TV, the furniture around the stove, the breakfast bar or the dining table, creatively made out of a cable reel.
This fabulous room is complete with a well-equipped kitchen with stunning units and high-quality appliances to make the most of.
Sitting close to the property is a magical meadow bursting with vibrant flora and providing a wonderful shepherd’s hut where you can sit and enjoy a picnic under the summer sun.
