Barn in Avonwick, Nr. Totnes, Devon, England - This Pretty 19th Century Barn Overlooks A Farm And Out Across The Peaceful Valley Of The Horsebrook
About Helen Caine
Helen was brought up in the farmhouse. She and her husband Peter bought the Barn in 2008 from members of her family.
Why Helen Caine chose North Huish
The Barn was where we played in the hay as children and fed the young calves who were housed in the lower floor! It was converted nearly 35 years ago and now is sited in the peaceful valley I knew so well.

A beautiful country house in the Devon countryside.
A lovely stay and we loved the cream tea when we arrived. Peter was extremely helpful.
Super location, so unspoilt. Only 5 or 6 vehicles passed the property over the entire long weekend!
Clean, comfortable, well appointed accommodation situated in an ideal place to explore this lovely unspoilt part of Devon.
We would certainly visit again and thoroughly recommend The Barn.

Perfect base to explore this part of Devon
We had a great stay, This very well designed split level barn conversion makes use of every space and still feels spacious. We really enjoyed staying here especially cooking with the Aga stove and log fires. Make sure you ask the owners about any planned power outages, as they may forget to warn you as was our experience.
