The detail

For those seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, look no further than The Barn. Having been lovingly refurbished by the owners, this gorgeous, rustic retreat is replete with character and charm whilst also offering plenty of style. Besides the peace and quiet, nearby places of interest include Dartmoor National Park to the north, and Devon's many stunning nature walks and beaches to the south. Sleeping up to a max of seven guests across four bedrooms, The Barn is an ideal retreat for small groups of friends or families who enjoy all of peace and quiet afforded by countryside living.

The exterior is that of a traditional English barn, with exposed stonework and a glazed pitch porch serving as the entrance. Throughout, guests will notice how the house is dotted with curios, both chic and traditional, adding to the unique character of this charming bolt hole. Interior design is at the heart of the refurb, with stylish colour choices, paint from Farrow & Ball and Little Greene, and new jute flooring throughout.

The spacious living room has ample seating, a TV, a dining table for six, and a wood burning stove. The kitchen comes well equipped, contains another dining table, and leads directly onto the garden. Step outside and you'll see that the garden is the perfect place to unwind after a long day's exploring. Here, you can whip something up on the BBQ and enjoy your meals on the outdoor furniture. The garden also houses a quaint little shed with a couple of sun chairs. Back inside, and downstairs, there is a single bedroom and a WC. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a comfy king size bed, a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, and the main bathroom.

Modbury is a quaint little market town in the South Hams district of Devon. There are a number of amenities nearby, including three pubs - all within a five-minute walk. The region is a favourite with nature lovers, with an abundance walking trails and scenic locations nearby. Just to the south is the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which has picturesque villages, pretty beaches, and arresting panoramic views. Just to the north is Dartmoor. A national park since 1951, this upland area is dotted with numerous historical and archaeological sites of interest. For those of a more urban inclination, the port city of Plymouth is a 30-minute drive away and the charming city of Exeter is 45 minutes away.

What a fabulous place to stay - so beautifully decorated with stylish furnishings as well. So very comfortable and plenty of room to make you feel at home. A beautiful garden as well and so very cosy to curl up in front of the wood burner. Modbury is also a gorgeous village and a very short drive away from the fabulous Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island. Jennie and Fiona were also very helpful including with late additions and a later check which was very much appreciated. Would definitely recommend this fabulous place and very much hope to be back at some point.
