Come here for a special treat! Here you will be cosseted in comfortable, tasteful surroundings and greeted on arrival to a delicious Devonshire clotted cream tea with homemade jam and scones, fresh flowers on the table and a bottle of champagne in the fridge, all included in the price. Set deep in the heart of the Devon countryside and especially suited to the romantic of heart, this delightful, spacious barn conversion is situated in the lovely two acre gardens of the owners' home, yet is totally private and self contained.

The beautiful River Avon is nearby or simply enjoy a glass of wine from the secluded summerhouse that commands wonderful views over the countryside.
