This converted former farm building is within view of Dartmoor National Park’s most famed beauty spot and well-loved ancient tor, Haytor Rock, and now provides three fantastic holiday properties. They have been sympathetically converted and beautifully styled and furnished with a blend of warming moorland colours and cosy soft-furnishings which are complemented with modern luxury amenities.
Haytor View, the end barn will delight both families and couples alike. As the name suggests, it boasts unrivalled views of Haytor Rock from several of its rooms. The light and airy stylish dining kitchen leads down into a comfortable lounge area with French doors opening out onto a patio and garden with views over the meadow in front.
Rural, yet not isolated, the peaceful location will dazzle the senses for those seeking outdoor pursuits as well as those wanting a restful holiday at any time of year. Each of the properties boasts stunning views across open wild sweeping moorland as well as across rolling Devon countryside towards the sparkle of the South Devon coastline. Dartmoor ponies are likely to nuzzle at the property’s gate. Whether on foot or on bike, there are endless routes straight from the front doors, and the many mysterious Dartmoor tales will captivate the imaginations of all ages. The historic quarries at Haytor are just a short walk away, from where you can follow the Haytor Granite Tramway, tracing the route to the coast used when granite was exported during the late 18th Century. For cyclists, Haytor is a regular Tour of Britain stage. For more restful pursuits there is a fabulous cafe bar offering delicious local goodies, a wonderful Dartmoor Inn and restaurant, and a National Park Visitor Centre that will equip guests with plentiful local information within a short stroll of the barns. Just slightly further afield, within a mile or so, there is a well stocked farm shop as well as a selection of picturesque village inns and tearooms; and just beyond that a wider selection of amenities are found within Bovey Tracey. Beyond Dartmoor, the shops, theatres, and cinemas of Exeter are not far away. Day trips to beaches in Teignmouth or South Hams offer a great alternative for a fun day-out.
The front door opens into a stylish open plan dining kitchen – a great social space! A contemporary glass-topped table comfortably accommodates six. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with a selection of appliances to include an induction hob, built-in oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. Three steps lead down into the living area which is furnished with a comfortable corner sofa, a further sofa, TV with DVD player and French doors which open onto the garden patio. To the other side of the front door, ground floor bedroom 1 boasts a 5ft king bed, views towards Haytor and an ensuite shower room with large shower enclosure, washbasin and WC. To the first floor, a spacious landing is furnished with a table and chairs from which enjoy a quiet relaxation space and a view towards Haytor Rock. Bedroom 2 overlooks the garden and is furnished with a 5ft king size bed and TV. Spacious bedroom 3 has twin 3ft single beds and has views of open moorland.
