2. Luxury Barn Conversion with Hot Tub
Number One at Swallows’ Flight is a 19th Century newly converted barn built of stone and wood, set in a restored cobbled farmyard. Ideal for a couple with a baby or two young children, it is entirely open plan with a well equipped kitchen, underfloor heating, bathroom with roll top bath and woodburner, with a double sofabed. Little roll out beds or cot/high chair can be added in at no extra charge.
In the barn you’ll find: a small kitchen area, a relaxing area with woodburning fire and cosy seating, a bathroom with roll top bath, a luxurious bed
and a private hot tub in the nearby garden. Relax in the your private rooftop hot tub on a deck overlooking the garden with southerly views to Start Point. On a clear night, the stars are truly a sight to behold as we have very little street lighting being surrounded by acres of open farmland.
For one summer only, the family is renting out the major (front) wing for others to enjoy.
The front wing has a garden entrance leading into a hallway. A vast kitchen-diner overlooks fields with views over farmland towards Start Point lighthouse. The sitting room has a formal area for aperitifs and a cosy L-shaped seating area with TV. Upstairs there is a large landing and four bedrooms. The master kingsize bedroom faces south and has a large ensuite bathroom with bath and shower. The second bedroom has a double bed and looks out over fields. There is a family bathroom with shower and bath adjacent. Bedroom three has twin beds and bedroom four has a bunk/cabin bed. No problem to provide cots.
The charming yachting towns of Dartmouth & Salcombe are close by as well as a whole host of attractions as listed under Lucia's Recommendations.
