Fantastic barn conversion with serious green credentials(EPC rated A)at the heart of Beer Mill Nature Trails (gold award Devon Wildlife Trust since 2003) ideal for family gatherings/celebrations and summer holidays - only a short drive to the safe sandy and surf beaches of North Cornwall - or winter weekend breaks for walking, talking eating and relaxing together around the huge stone fireplace with double sided log burner, wi-fi now available.

Luxury and comfort of pocket sprung mattresses, feather quilts and pillows, underfloor heating from ground source heat pump, piping hot water from solar panels with green tariff electricity back up (solar pv no win action) combine to make this a guilt free relaxing get away for everyone - we can even provide a chef with local produce so Mum and Dad can put their feet up.

Interaction with guests
When you book the Stone Barn you will be staying at the heart of Beer Mill Farm Conservation Project which is where we live and work. Our house is a few fields away from the Stone Barn but we are on hand in case you need us, happy to take you on a guided walk, or you can explore with the maps and activities we leave for you. We regularly eat out locally so we are happy to recommend pubs and restaurants, just send us a message. We have many local contacts from a private chef service to horse riding schools, taxi drivers to hairdressers so ask if you need to know anything. We are keen walkers and regularly explore the local area, South West Coastal path, Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor and Exmoor and we are happy to recommend our favourite routes.
