Property Details

On the edge of the tranquil hamlet of Dunkeswell Abbey, in a quiet country lane is Abbey Cross Barn. This former barn has been converted to an interesting, rustic-looking, wood-clad cottage. You enter through a little glass-panelled lobby to a pine-floored, L-shaped sitting room with dining area and French windows to the terrace and garden. There's also a well-equipped modern kitchen. Stairs lead to the first floor and a small landing (5'6" headroom), of which are two bedrooms under the eaves, both overlooking the garden - a double with low sloping ceilings and a twin (5'8" lintel, sloping ceiling). Outside is a good-sized garden with a table, chairs and barbecue overlooking the owner's apple orchard and vegetable garden.
