Property DetailsRef: MEADV
Umberleigh Barton Farm is set in the beautiful Taw Valley, made famous by Henry Williamson's "Tarka the Otter" and nestles in 400 acres of the most stunning Devonshire countryside on the outskirts of Umberleigh. The original farm dates back to the 9th century and two barns have been skilfully converted into high quality holiday accommodation, combining many original features with every modern comfort. Walk almost from the doorstep down to the River Taw where herons and kingfishers are often found on the waters edge, or take a stroll through the woodland and catch site of red deer. The nearby historic town of Barnstaple is just fifteen minutes drive away and a choice of wonderful sandy beaches are within easy reach. Meadow View and Taw Valley Cottage offer a peaceful and relaxing setting from which to explore all that North Devon has to offer and are ideal to book together for extended family and friends.
This stylish barn conversion is a wonderful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In a peaceful setting surrounded by beautiful Devonshire countryside within the owners 400 acre farm bordering the River Taw, you are able to purchase a permit to fish on the river by prior arrangement. An expanse of glass windows and doors brings the outside in, and the open plan living area features exposed stonework and vaulted oak beams. The contemporary furnishings are complemented by slate flooring and a cosy corner with comfy sofas has far reaching views over the surrounding hills and valleys. There is a single bedroom together with a stylish modern shower room on the ground floor and a staircase rises up to the galleried landing and the double bedroom where a unique window frames the panoramic countryside scene. There are many walks leading directly from the cottage or a choice of stunning North Devon beaches just a thirty minute drive away or perhaps you would prefer to head inland to beautiful Exmoor National Park. Ideal for couples, small families and friends there is also the advantage of being able to book Meadow View together with Taw Valley Cottage for larger groups.
