Conveniently located for exploring both the south and north coastlines of Devon and also Somerset, guests have a wealth of attractions and National Trust country houses within driving distance for day trips out. Located mid-way between Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks there are also plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy including golf, walking, cycling, fishing and horse riding to name just a few.
Ideal for friends and families, The Barton Granary and Brimbles offer plenty of space and a high standard of self-catering accommodation. Carefully converted, these Grade II listed barns offer guests the opportunity to relax and unwind in a tranquil countryside setting where you can enjoy enjoy dark starry skies, peace and quiet and an abundance of fresh air.
For those looking for a venue to get together with friends, family or celebrate a special occasion, both holiday homes can be rented together to accommodate large parties of up to twenty guests. Catering can be arranged, along with baby sitting and beauty treatments for those who want some pampering whilst away. Home reared meats are also often available from the farm or can be locally sourced by arrangement.
