Barn
This completely re-built detached barn for two or four people has been lovingly handcrafted with local oak finished to the top of the range specification, professionally designed and furnished to delight the most discerning visitor to Dartmoor.The uninterrupted views from the sun terrace over surrounding pastureland towards Dartmoor Tors are breathtakingly beautiful. This is a supremely peaceful place to stay, set just off a sleepy lane - and you may see Dartmoor Ponies passing the gate en route for the hills - yet you are within easy reach of many of South Devon's main attractions.

This is a supremely peaceful place to stay, set just off a sleepy lane - and you may see Dartmoor Ponies passing the gate en route for the hills - yet you are within easy reach of many of South Devon's main attractions. A 5 Minute level walk takes you to the welcoming local pub, The Rugglestone Inn, which serves 'real ale' and scrumptious food and the village of Widecombe-In-The- Moor, famous for its annual fair is a further 1/2 mile stroll. Visitors enjoy free-range eggs from our tiny flock of hens. Visit in Autumn or Winter for cosy evenings round the wood fire - and come to walk in all seasons in fabulously lovely Dartmoor countryside. Beneath the vaulted arched Oak trussed roof sits the Lounge and across the bridge the Kitchen and Dining Room, designed as an “upside down house” to make best use of the stunning and uninterrupted views across Dartmoor and create a light and airy and spacious living environment. Devon made beech framed comfortable sofas sit in the spacious lounge making an ideal and restful environment for lounging in front of the lovely log burner or watching a film from a wide range of DVDs on the large plasma television. Sit and lounge plug in your iPod and relaxing to some music. The whole house is under floor heated to provide a constant warm atmosphere with silent operation. At night, you can set your own ambiance using lamps, low level in-floor lighting or high level up-lights. The fully equipped kitchen, handmade from solid oak by Dartmoor Carpentry, with granite work surfaces and full size butchers block is an aspiring chef's delight, with quality pans and knives, a 5 burner two oven range, fridge and separate freezer, dish washer, washing machine/ dryer and everything else we could think you may need. (Even 40 bottles of Red, Rosé and White wine - on an honesty box arrangement). Downstairs sit the two en-suite bedrooms (both bathrooms have both big walk in showers and baths) divided by the entrance hall, one having a contemporary designed fully curtained king-sized four poster bed ,the other having two single beds that zip and link to form a super king sized bed. No expense has been spared on the quality of the linen or mattresses ensuring real comfort and luxury. Cots and high chairs can be provided. The large flagged entrance hall is ideal for outdoor wear and is a great 'drying room' because of the under floor heating. Both designer bathrooms have walk-in showers with big shower heads and loads of room. The baths are spacious and deep, the aim is to make the bathing experience one of quality, warmth and relaxation, soft fluffy towels and candles are provided. For the colder wetter Dartmoor days, recovery is on hand in the form of a cedar lined sauna, warming and soothing the aches and pains usually caused by the Dartmoor favourites of walking, cycling or horse riding. The sauna is accessed via the four poster bedroom. Outside the building is a large south facing terrace, dining area with BBQ and lawn area with sun loungers. Just a stroll away is a wonderful traditional Dartmoor Pub - The Rugglestone Inn, providing top quality food and drink.More

About the neighbourhood
Dartmoor - Purple, heather clad moorland, wide open landscapes, rushing rivers and obscure stone tors shape the landscape of Dartmoor. But that is just one small part of a big picture. There are rolling valleys, bogs and wetland, waterfalls and well trodden paths, ancient, eery forests and lonely ruins. Sometimes ominous, challenging, extreme, sometimes welcoming, heart warming; always breathtaking, always changing, the landscape of Dartmoor is alive in every sense of the word. Whether you're looking for a challenging trek across windswept moors, or just a relaxing stroll through secluded woods, you've come to the right place. Dartmoor has it all. Blaze your own trail, be a pioneer, explore and take the less trodden route. If you know your way around an OS map, download one of the many...
