Property code: HEMBS

This delightful semi-detached property forms part of a non-working farm set amongst 16 acres of private pastureland and woods and provides a perfect base for couples wishing to relax and unwind.

Experience a unique stay in the Devonshire countryside, where a lovingly presented barn conversion offers a wonderful space for your little family. The property is perfect for a romantic retreat, sleeping two guests in a studio-style spot. Those who are likely to enjoy a country retreat much more with man’s best friend at their heels are well catered for too, as they are welcome to bring along one dog for the stay.

Located on 16 acres of a non-working farm, this delightful studio property is both intimate and thoughtfully presented. There’s more than enough space for the three of you to eat, sleep and prepare food in one pretty room, enjoying one another’s company at close quarters. Pack up a picnic or prepare a romantic dinner in the well-equipped kitchen, settling onto the sofa to enjoy a late-night film. This characterful cottage comes alive outside where you’ll find a private, enclosed patio space. Pop open a bottle of something bubbly and delve into the wood fired hot tub, letting Fido bask in the fresh air or wander onto the pretty lawn.

Man and dog alike will go mutts for the endless walking routes surrounding the property, with both Devon and Cornish countryside within close reach. Pack up your tennis balls and take a trip to Westward Ho! (15.5 miles), heading to Northam Burrows Beach (17 miles) to let four-pawed pals stretch their legs on the sand. Follow the stunning South West Coast Path down to a Cornish seaside spot, visiting Summerleaze Beach (20.5 miles), taking in stunning sea views. Those less keen on sandy paws can head inland to the Dartmoor National Park (14 miles), where endless sticks will be waiting to be fetched by your beloved bow-wow.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a lovely stay at The Stable. Just as the photos show it was exactly the same. Very pretty, comfortable and cosy. Julie had very thoughtfully lit the hot tub for us for when we arrived. The weather wasnt great but we didnt mind so much because the place was so lovely. Will definately book again

Julie and her husband Chris are such lovely people. Their property is well thought out, designed and decorated to a very high standard. The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived.
