Fabulous barn in a lovely village

5 of 5
Beautifully presented and well equipped barn in a delightful village in the South Hams. Spacious, flexible open-plan living on the top floor, and lovely comfortable and peaceful (well, apart from the odd sheep!) bedrooms downstairs. Short distance to a friendly little pub in the same village that serves decent food, and fantastic walks on your door-step. Without doubt we shall return! It is worth noting though that many of the roads in the immediate locality a pretty narrow and could concern a nervous driver especially at busy holiday times. That said, they present no problem if approached carefully.

The Grain Store was perfect in every way

5 of 5
The property was clean and spacious and extremely well equipped, everything has been thought of. The on site facilities were perfect, something for every family member. The games room, snooker room were a big hit. Swimming pool, pitch and put golf and even a tennis court were used. The house was local to nearby beaches, and there was even a public footpath for our morning dog walks. The bottle of wine waiting on the table was a perfect start to our holiday. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future.
