About this property

Fletchers Barn is an indulgent retreat, with beautiful furnishings, period features and modern touches creating a wonderful place to spend time away from a busy schedule within the rolling landscape of Devon's South Hams. Set over two floors, there are sociable spaces for relaxing in and quiet places to retreat to, with exposed trusses and beams on the upper floor as well as a fabulous wood burning stove and country kitchen creating the warming atmosphere of a truly rural retreat. Seven sumptuous bedrooms tempt lazy mornings in bed with cups of coffee or tea and toast, and five modern bathrooms mean there's plenty of space for all.

To the back of the barns is a fabulous terrace with a large, private hot tub and a spacious outdoor lounge suite. Overlooking the established garden, this is the perfect spot for fresh air dining and barbecues as well as for evening drinks that can be savoured well into the night around the enormous fire bowl. Upstairs, the kitchen invites you to cook up a storm, with an enormous farmhouse table the perfect size for converging around to share meals and conversation, and the shared games room within the grounds is a great place to spend time together for a bit of friendly competition.

Surrounded by farm and woodland, the area is bursting with tracks and trails to explore, along with ample outdoor space for picnics and games. The fantastic beaches at Blackpool Sands, South Milton Sands, Bantham and Bigbury-on-sea are within a short drive as are the towns of Totnes, Darmouth and Salcombe.
