DevonHome > Cottages > The Barn, 21 At The Beach
This pretty corner of South Devon is the perfect spot to enjoy a family holiday or a relaxing break with friends.
At the Beach is in an enviable position on Slapton Sands, a sleepy village on Devon’s South coast best known for its three-mile shingle beach and Slapton Ley Nature Reserve. It was also used as a training ground for the US Army in the preparation for D-Day in World War II and if you want to explore further afield, Dartmouth and Salcombe are within easy reach.
Slapton Ley Nature Reserve is the largest freshwater lake in South West England just across the road from the At The Beach complex. The 1.5 mile lake is a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of the habitat and the rare species which thrive in the unique conditions.
The Barn, originally constructed to house the horse drawn carriages of wealthy Victorian visitors to the Tor Hotel in the mid to late 1800’s, this home is just metres from the beach and has been beautifully restored to offer guests stylish accommodation in a unique seaside position.
Step inside and you’ll discover a sumptuous ground floor bedroom with its own luxurious en-suite shower room. The chunky window reveals a nod to the building’s humble past and lends a characterful charm to this room with a walk-in closet providing additional hanging space for coats and jackets.
A staircase leads up to the first floor which opens on to a bright, double volume open plan living and kitchen area, complete with original exposed roof timbers. Pendulum lighting and stylish soft furnishings make for a welcoming space, with sink in sofas and a large flat screen TV creating the perfect place to spend time and unwind in. The Shaker-style kitchen is well-equipped and ideal for preparing a homecooked meal or two in, and with a fabulous farm shop within just a short drive from the property, guests can whip up a few Devon-inspired creations of their own.
On this floor guests will also discover a fantastic family bathroom as well as a second bedroom, elegantly furnished with two large single beds. The vaulted ceiling with large angled windows flood the room with light making it a gorgeous space to enjoy some much needed downtime in.
