Holiday Rental House
The living spaces are open plan, light and airy with wooden floors. The old barn walls and pillars form the heart of the house. Up half a level are 2 bedrooms and bathroom, with a winding staircase leading to a beautiful attic room. This is a low carbon house with solar hot water, solar electicity and wood fired heating. The land is on a hillside with beautiful views, lawns, trees, meadow and sitting decks. The veg garden is organic, and you're welcome to eat from it. You can also use the yoga studio building in the gardens for meditation, yoga, tai chi etc. We are surrounded by fields and woods, hills, valleys and streams. You can stroll out of the house and onto footpaths, green lanes and quiet country roads. Harberton has a 13th century pub, The Church House Inn, and Totnes is 2.5 miles...The living spaces are open plan, light and airy with wooden floors.
