This is the kind of home that belongs to its landscape. With its rustic simplicity and views across the North Devon countryside, it’s the ideal place to retreat and connect with the natural beauty of the surroundings. Sitting quietly within the grounds of The Barns, and just a short drive from Barnstaple, this former farm building has been thoughtfully restored into a home that lives and breathes with its setting. From the light–filled living area to the intimate bedrooms, the space is naturally illuminated and inspires a lovely sense of wellbeing. And whether you’re out in the garden, staying cosy by the wood–burning stove or cooking up a treat, it’s easy to settle in and feel at home here. Outside, you’ll find miles of beautiful countryside waiting for you to explore. The award winning beaches of Woolacombe and the renowned pebble ridge beach at Westward Ho! are within a thirty–minute drive. Plus you’ll find all the amenities you could need in Barnstaple – don’t miss the historic Pannier Market where you can buy fresh flowers and local produce.
