At the opposite side of the courtyard from the Farmhouse are the old stables, converted into a comfortable two bedded self catering cottage sleeping four people. To take advantage of the view of the fields and valley, it is an ‘upside down’ house with living area upstairs (stair gate installed).
Entrance hall with old slate floor, large double bedded room with king sized bed, smaller twin bedded room (the beds are not side by side), and bathroom with W.C., basin, bath, separate shower, and combination washing machine/tumble drier. All rooms have the original large old beams, pitched pine floors and natural wood finishes.
Up the oak stairs the remainder of the Stables is open plan. The living area faces south with views of the fields and Devon countryside, and has a wood burning stove, sofa and easy chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped, with pine table and dresser, and has hand painted tiles above the worktop. Between kitchen and living area is a pine dining table with chairs.
