The Woodshed is a detached property resting on the outskirts of Sheepwash. Here, you will find two bedrooms, comprising a super king-size double (zip/link beds, can be made into twins on request) with an en-suite shower and a double bedroom with an en-suite shower. Completing the interior is an open-plan living room with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburning stove. Outside, there is a large patio area with an outdoor shower and furniture, as well as ample off-road parking and grassland with a fire pit. The Woodshed is a superb base for exploring this picturesque part of the country.
Remotely situated in the picturesque wooded area of Buckland Mill, just a short journey from Buckland Filleigh is this unique and characterful property. The Woodshed set in 25 acres of its own land, not to mention the surrounding beautiful woodland, is a very well-presented property and enjoys stylish interior design. The initial entrance to the property is via a woodland track that eventually bends round to the front of the property where ample parking is available. Walking into the property from the large front patio, there is an open-plan layout that combines the spacious kitchen and main living area with the original stone wall adding to its character. The kitchen has a large counter and is well-equipped with induction hob, cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher all available for guest usage, as well as a dining table for those looking to self-cater. Off the kitchen is a hallway - perfect for storing muddy boots and coats. From here, there is a cloakroom and access to a small courtyard that has a warm shower for those muddy doggie paws (and human ones!!) Moving into the main living area is a dining table, chairs and a television, as well as a wood burner and tiled floor with underfloor heating. As you ascend the beech (sourced from our woodland) and copper staircase, you reach the first double bedroom equipped with a double bed, bedside tables and chest of drawers for storage. There are Velux windows in this room with a stylish Juliet balcony, which afford the room plenty of light and beams, giving it a charming vintage feel. This room features an en-suite with double tray rain shower, WC, basin and towel rail. Moving further along the hallway is another similar double bedroom, with a super-king bed, Velux windows and en-suite containing shower, basin and WC. The picturesque village of Buckland Filleigh is a 20-minute stroll away or a 5-minute drive. The national cycle route is close-by where you can join the entirely traffic-free Tarka Trail route that takes you through Great Torrington to Meeth. The area of Buckland Mill itself is rich with wildlife and is perfect for bird spotters with cuckoo’s and woodpeckers being regular visitors. RHS Garden Rosemoor is a short drive away where you can spend the day perusing around the beautiful gardens with an arboretum and herbaceous borders. Alternatively, head south into Dartmoor and take in the luscious scenery of one of the most highly regarded AONBs in the UK. The Woodshed is a perfect place kick back and admire the stunning scenery that Devon has to offer. It should be noted that The Woodshed is part one of a two barn restoration project. The adjacent barn is an ongoing project that hopefully will add interest to your visit with minimal inconvenience.
