Description of New Barn

New Barn is a bright, spacious, beautifully presented, detached stone barn. It has traditional high vaulted ceilings and stunning views across the countryside and towards Saunton Sands. Situated in a area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a few miles from the pretty village of Hartland, with its lighthouse and dramatic quay and local to the historic cobblestoned paved Clovelly village and visitors centre. Stunning coves nearby at Spekes Mill and sandy surfing beached at Westward Ho! and Sandymouth. A short drive away is Saunton Sands, Croyde, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. There are numerous National Trust properties in the area, including RHS Rosemoor and Docton Mill. Slightly further afield is the Dartmoor National Park. If you are feeling energetic, why not hire a bike and cycle the Tarka or Camel Trails, both of which are traffic free. For the children, the Big Sheep or the Milky Way are great days out for all the family, both only a short drive away. For those wanting to travel further south into Cornwall, Bude, Port Isaac, Boscastle, Padstow, Wadebridge or Newquay, the barn is just minutes from the Atlantic Highway which provides excellent links to the whole of North Devon and Cornwall.

Local shops, post office, fish and chip shop and pubs can be found in the pretty village of Hartland 2 miles. Historic Clovelly 5 miles. Braunton 20 minutes - here you will find 'Squires' Fish and Chip Shop and Restaurant - one of the best in my opinion, well worth a visit. Barnstaple (main shopping town) 30 minutes. Woolacombe 45 minutes. The nearest supermarket (Asda) is 15 minutes drive and is situated on the Atlantic Village retail outlet which has many outlet stores including M&S, Nike, Denby to name a few.
