Oak Barn – Quality from Start to Finish - For Four People
There were no compromises in the design, build or finish of this luxury contemporary barn conversion, resting on the edge of the moor in a remote but not isolated position on the outskirts of the village of Widecombe in the Moor, within the Dartmoor National Park.
Beneath the vaulted arched Oak trussed roof sits the Lounge and across the bridge the Kitchen and Dining Room, designed as an “upside down house” to make best use of the stunning and uninterrupted views across Dartmoor and create a light and airy living environment.
Devon made beech framed comfortable sofas sit in the spacious lounge making an ideal and restful environment for lounging in front of the lovely log burner or watching a film from a wide range of DVDs on the large plasma television. Sit and lounge plug in your iPod and relaxing to some music.
The whole house is under floor heated to provide a constant warm atmosphere with silent operation. At night, you can set your own ambiance using lamps, low level in-floor lighting or high level up-lights.
The fully equipped kitchen, handmade from solid oak by Dartmoor Carpentry, with granite work surfaces and full size butchers block is an aspiring chef’s delight, with quality pans and knives, a 5 burner two oven range, fridge and separate freezer, dish washer, washing machine/ dryer and everything else we could think you may need. (Even 40 bottles of Red, Rosé and White wine - on an honesty box arrangement).
Downstairs sit the two En-suite bedrooms divided by the entrance hall, one having a contemporary designed fully curtained king-sized four poster bed, the other having two single beds that zip and link to form a super king sized bed.
No expense has been spared on the quality of the linen or mattresses ensuring real comfort and luxury. Cots and high chairs can be provided. The large flagged entrance hall is ideal for outdoor wear and is a great ‘drying room’ because of the under floor heating.
Both designer bathrooms have walk-in showers with big shower heads and loads of room. The baths are spacious and deep, the aim is to make the bathing experience one of quality, warmth and relaxation, soft fluffy towels and candles are provided.
For the colder wetter Dartmoor days, recovery is on hand in the form of a cedar lined sauna, warming and soothing the aches and pains usually caused by the Dartmoor favourites of Walking, Cycling or Horse Riding. The sauna is accessed via the four poster bedroom.
Outside the building is a large south facing terrace, dining area with BBQ and lawn area with sun loungers.
Stunning Views and Location.
Master Bedroom has Four Poster Bed and Sauna.
