  • Relax in the enclosed garden after a day exploring and watch the magnificent sunsets

Nestled deep in the magnificent rolling countryside, just moments from the endless golden coastline, this first-floor barn conversion is the ultimate cosy, romantic bolthole to explore the magnificent scenery North Devon is famous for.

After adventuring around the countryside and nearby coastline, the open-plan living/kitchen/dining room is the perfect remedy to relax and warm chilly toes and paws beside the roaring wood burner. Take the weight off on the comfy sofa and catch your favourite programme on the Smart TV, or refuel in the farmhouse-style kitchen, kitted out with everything you need to whip up a fabulous meal with all the local produce you’ve collected. As the sun sets, retreat to the cosy bedroom boasting wonderful countryside views that’ll send you to sleep dreaming of tomorrow’s rural adventure. A contemporary shower room completes this peaceful bolthole. Outside, down a few steps, you’re welcomed into an enclosed suntrap patio, perfect for dining alfresco with privacy guaranteed. The barn sits in the garden of the owner’s home, and guests have access to a ground-floor utility area offering secure storage for bikes and surfboards.

The secluded countryside village of Parkham is just over 6.5 miles away from the historic harbour town of Bideford, packed with independent shops, cafes and restaurants serving locally sourced menus, and a picturesque quay. For a spot of retail therapy, head to Affinity Devon, 5 miles away, to discover high-street stores and big-name brands at discount prices. Occupying a disused railway line, join up with the Tarka Trail from Bideford’s old train station 8 miles away, to ramble or cycle through some breathtaking scenery following the estuary to the sandy stretch of Instow Beach, just under 10 miles away, backed by magnificent dunes which are perfect for children to play in and four-pawed pals to run around.
