Byre, The,Dartmouth Information

The Byre and The Linhay are adjoining barns set in the delightful grounds of Higher Ash Farm (and owner's nearby farmhouse), just two miles from the famous naval town of Dartmouth, and a 10 minute drive along the coast road to Blackpool Sands beach. The farm (with cows, sheep and chickens) produces a wide range of fruit and vegetables for sale when in season to guests, and fresh eggs are available most of the year.

The Byre

A spacious and well-presented barn conversion with lovely views across neighbouring gardens, orchard and rolling fields. The barn retains many character features including original cross beams and a delightful stone fireplace and is ideally suited to families with younger children or perhaps couples looking for a quieter location within easy reach of Dartmouth and the surrounding area.

Whilst The Byre and adjoining barn, The Linhay are individual properties with private access and accommodation they also offer opportunities for two families seeking adjacent properties of an equivalent, high standard.

LOCATION The barn is one of a pair in the grounds of Higher Ash Farm just two miles from the famous naval town of Dartmouth.  The barns (and adjacent owner's farmhouse) sit within 50 acres of delightful grounds including extensive areas of lawned garden, well-stocked orchard and working farmland (with cows, sheep and chickens) - N.B. There is one small pond within the grounds and we recommend that your children should be supervised.  The farm produces a wide range of fruit and vegetables for sale to guests when in season, and fresh eggs are available most of the year!  The village of Stoke Fleming (with pub and shop/Post office) is 30 minutes walk away, with Blackpool Sands beach just a 10 minute drive along the coast road.

VIEWS Lovely views from most rooms (and terrace) across the farmhouse garden, orchard and country fields beyond.

ENTRANCE The front door is approached from a communal terrace area - two steps lead up into a small hallway off which is the kitchen to one side and dining room to the other. 

KITCHEN On the ground floor is a well equipped Shaker-style kitchen with tiled flooring, fitted units, four-ring ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Small breakfast bar with stools.  (A washing machine is housed in a communal area between the two barns)

OUTSIDE To the side of the barn is a good-sized terrace with wooden table and bench seating - this area overlooks the garden and catches the morning sun so is the ideal spot for an al fresco breakfast.  To the rear is a large area of lawn running through to over 50 acres of farmland beyond.  (To the rear of the barn is a communal area with table, chairs and built-in barbeque which may be made available by the owner during the season).
