Small Barn Conversion in a Sunny Devon Village

1 of 22
Barn -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Okehampton, Dartmoor National Park, Devon, England
The Cow Shed is a new barn conversion, set in softly rolling, sunny Devon countryside, with its own 2 acre field and a wonderful view. Mix modern luxuries with the fab outdoors: a field to yourselves, a serious BBQ, sun loungers, outdoor dining furniture, a fire pit, the patio, french doors, no noise except the tweeting birds and the great view compete with the draw of the squishy sofas, underfloor heating, rain shower, roll top bath, wifi, big TV, loaded book shelves and kitchen/diner to enhance your relaxing and peaceful escape. On a clear night you can see a star scape that is invisible in the city. The Cow Shed is a beautiful place where you can escape and relax - chilled glass of wine, sun lounger at the ready, BBQ on the go and view waiting to be enjoyed.

Dartmoor, the north and south coasts of Devon and Cornwall are all wit...

This is a beautiful barn conversion with every possible attention to detail, a wonderfully equipped kitchen and utility room, bathroom, separate shower room upstairs, and cosy sitting room.

This is truly an amazing place to stay. Our small family stayed there, with our dog, for a weekend and we can honestly say we did relax. The area is lovely for walking and the bonus of having the field right outside was great. The...More

About the neighborhood
The Cow Shed is set on the edge of the village of Exbourne, right in the middle of sunny Devon, with a village shop and friendly local pub. With its fab views and loads of private outdoor space you may never want to leave the Cow Shed, but Dartmoor and the North and South Devon coasts are not far away. There are loads of days out - cycling trails, walking, the coastal path, gastro pubs, tea shops, theme parks, festivals and adventure days out in Devon. And Cornwall is only about 25 minutes away.

But perhaps all you will do is set up the BBQ, lay out on the sun lounger and watch the clouds float across the big blue sky, or flake out on one of the squishy sofas with a good book, or stretch your legs with a stroll up to the pub for a pint and catch up on local gossip. Change down a ge...
