Granary Cottage was formerly the engine house and grain store at Trenchard Farm and has now been stylishly refurbished to provide holiday accommodation for four guests. It affords its own garden and parking area and has lots of character with high beams, slate and wooden floors, log burner and stonework.
Located in Mid Devon, Granary Cottage is conveniently positioned between Exeter, Dartmoor, Barnstaple and Exmoor with a wealth of interesting places to visit within easy reach - An ideal holiday location for exploring the beautiful Devon rolling countryside and coastline.
Plenty of activities can be enjoyed both locally and within the wider area. Fishermen can enjoy fly fishing on the Little Dart and the River Taw (just five minutes away) or fish for sea bass on the North Devon coastline; Walkers have direct access onto the Tarka Trail which runs through the farm into the valley at Chenson; cyclists can explore the Tarka Trail cycle route, miles of country lanes and the scenic coastline of North Devon; The adventurous can visit Survival Games, the South West's largest paint ball centre; golfers can play a round at nearby Chulmleigh Golf Course and horse riders can bring their own horse away with them for great off road riding opportunities. The North Devon coastline also offers superb surfing and water activities.
Exeter and Barnstaple are both within easy reach of Granary Cottage and just over twenty miles away. You can either take the car or take the Tarka Line which is a five minute stroll from the cottage and provides a perfect way to sit back and take in the beautiful scenery that has changed little over the years. Travelling between Exeter and Barnstaple, the Tarka Line allows you to visit the historical City of Exeter or the unique market town of Barnstaple.
