The Garden House is situated in 18 acres of stunning gardens and woodland. Fancy a row on the lake?
The Garden House is a modern barn conversion finished to the highest luxury standards.
The kitchen area is exceptionally light and airy, well equipped and a dream to use.
With underfloor heating, the lounge area is a great place for up to four people to chill out.
The woodburning stove provides the focal point for cosy winter evenings.
Your private, sun-drenched patio is straight outside the French doors; with parking spaces beyond.
As shown, bedroom 1 has 'zip-and-link' beds, which can convert into a luxury double.
Bedroom 2 also has a very comfortable modern kingsize bed.
Each bedroom has a luxury en-suite shower room with underfloor heating.
Here's the glorious view west over the vegetable garden, as seen from the upstairs window.
The Garden House has private parking for two cars alongside the private patio.
The summer house by the lake. Described by a guest as 'a magical place'.
You're welcome to use the summer house for a meal by the lake, or to relax and read a book.
The planting, landscaping and views are inspirational. Don't forget your camera!
Wildlife abounds. A baby grass snake basks on a rock in the warm sun.
This is the view from the hide, where—if you're lucky—you might observe a busy kingfisher.
A peacock butterfly alights on a flower to sip the nectar.
Under a hot sun, carp bask in the warm water of the lake margin in height of summer.
A woodland path wends its way around the lake, here seen in the winter sun.
In autumn, a majestic white stag stands in a field which forms part of the 18 acres.
With 18 acres to explore, every turn holds new vistas and delights.
The woodland path winds along the stream. Keep quiet and you might see deer in the shady glades.
A long walk for little legs through the widlflower meadow and back to the Garden House.
Kerry & John, 2 of our guests, were married locally and used our garden for their photos.

Beaworthy, Devon, England
The Garden House is the perfect getaway for a family of four or two couples wishing for the peace and quiet of deep countryside. Found down an unmade lane, The Garden House is a recent conversion of a stable block that once served a nearby stately home. With underfloor heating, heat-recovery ventilation, solar hot water + electricity, you'll be warm and cosy in this beautifully-appointed dwelling. Note there are no 'hidden extras': the price is all-inclusive.

Upstairs are 2 spacious bedrooms, one with a king-sized double bed, the other with your choice of either twin beds or—by zipping and linking—a second king-sized double. Both bedrooms have luxurious en-suites with large showers and East-facing windows to catch the morning sun.

Downstairs is a well-equipped luxurious kitchen/dining area with a fridge + freezing compartmen...

A great, spacious and well equipped house with a lovely summer house and lake. The bumpy road down to the cottage didn't worry us as you expect this kind of thing in the countryside! We found that when we arrived the welcome wasn't as warm as it has been when we've stayed at other places however, and were given strict... more

Management response:

We're so glad enjoyed your stay. We apologise if you felt our introduction was not right—it's always difficult to gauge the welcome, as some guests like to be left alone while others want to chat! Generally we trust we get it right, as the other reviews will testify. We mentioned the recycling arrangements when you arrived—and it was covered in... more
