Tucked away on the outskirts of the pretty village of Tedburn St Mary is Great Huish Farm.
Approximately seven miles from the historic city of Exeter, this 40 acre sheep farm is just a short drive away from the north eastern edge of the Dartmoor National Park.
The original ploughman's quarters have been expertly converted from a 16th century long barn where the heavy horses were stabled, to two superb, adjoining holiday homes.
The Furrow, the larger of the two, retains much of the character of the original barn with ancient beams and sloping ceilings.
The living space is bright, airy and open plan, complete with wood burning stove and oak floors and encompasses a stylish kitchen area.
A winding staircase leads to two bedrooms, one of which has glazed doors overlooking the pony field below.
To the side of the property is a lovely secluded patio with garden furniture, this leads to a lawned garden, which is shared with its neighbour, The Yoke.
Ground Floor: Open Plan Lounge/Kitchen/Diner. First Floor: Bedroom 1 with king-size bed and en-suite shower room with shower, WC and washbasin. Bedroom 2 with twin (2ft 6in) beds, zip and link to make 5ft double bed. Bathroom with shower bath, WC and washbasin.
About the location
Shillingford Abbot 2.4 miles; Exminster 4 miles; Topsham 4.4 miles.
Exeter is a lively city in south Devon with a magnificent cathedral, historic quayside area with artisan shops and cafes, guided tours of the maze of underground passages and a wealth of bars, shops and restaurants. There is a good choice of excellent museums tracing the city’s lengthy history including an interesting medieval building The Tucker’s Hall, built for the Company of Weavers, Tuckers and Shearman which houses exceptional carved panelling, rare silver and a 4 feet long pair of fulling shears. Nearby Parliament Street claims to be the world’s narrowest street – less than 25 inches at its narrowest. The gatehouse and tower of Rougemont castle still stand in the city, surrounded by Rougemont gardens with a backdrop of Roman wall ruins - a tranquil haven. Exeter’s one time importance as a port is reflected in the Custom House, now the centrepiece of the Quayside, a fascinating complex of antique shops and cafes. Within a 15 minute drive of the city, there are some fabulous beaches at Sidmouth and Exmouth, and the start of the 95 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, all of which provide ample opportunities for relaxation, sport and exploration. Exeter is an ideal south Devon base from which to explore pretty countryside and Heritage Coast.
