Set within 22 acres of privately owned pasture land, Broad Downs Barn forms part of Broad Downs Farm dating from c. 1860 and consisting of the original farmhouse, stables, barn and piggery. Approached by its own private lane, the barn has been converted to the highest of standards whilst maintaining its original exterior integrity. Internally it provides spacious, luxury modern family holiday accommodation, contemporary design and technical specification. The barn is serviced by the latest 'Green' technology and enjoys shared use of a delightful outdoor heated swimming pool set in an original walled garden.
LOCATION Broad Downs Barn is just a short 5 minute drive from the picturesque sailing town of Salcombe with its beaches, waterfront, shops and restaurants. Beautiful walks from Broad Downs Barn connect with miles of coastal paths at Bolberry Down leading to Salcombe, Soar Mill Cove, Hope Cove and Thurlestone, whilst Bantham Beach, popular with surfers from far and wide is just a 10 minute drive away. The location provides an ideal secluded country retreat away from the crowds -the perfect base for exploring neighbouring coves and beaches and the market town of Kingsbridge (a 10 minute drive) and beyond to Dartmouth approximately half an hour away.
