Situated on the outskirts of the charming town of Modbury, Old Traine Cottage makes up part of the 14th Century tithe barn for Modbury Church with the adjacent larger Old Traine Barn, both of which have been converted to excellent standards. Within the mellow ancient walls the light, spacious living areas have large windows that overlook the low walled gardens with meadows and hills beyond.  The beautifully finished kitchens and bathrooms, fine oak and slate floors, slate window sills, gothic style wall lamps and bedsteads and handsome comfortable furniture combine to make these exceptional properties. With its dignified terraced houses and enticing old fashioned shop windows Modbury has timeless character. This little town is a hive of activity and is readily accessible to wonderful beaches at Wonwell, Mothecombe and Bigbury, and only half an hour from Dartmoor or the historic city of Plymouth. Garden furniture and barbecues are supplied. The barns are located at the end of a quiet unmade road.

Modbury is a large village in the popular South Hams area of Devon and located within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To the south is a choice of sandy beaches while to the north lies Dartmoor National Park. The village itself has several cafés, three pubs all of which serve food, a wine bar, an Indian and a Chinese as well as a good range of shops. There are so many interesting villages to explore including Kingston, Ringmore, Bigbury, Aveton Gifford, Holbeton and Mothecombe. Visit the Brownston Art Gallery that holds regular exhibitions including some very well known artists as well as local talent.
