ACCOMMODATION A delightful two-bedroomed barn conversion with private, off-road parking, equipped and furnished to a high standard throughout
LOCATION The Barn is set just a few yards back from the 'At The Beach' development (formerly the Torcross Hotel) in the heart of Torcross, a traditional village with an intriguing history and unspoiled shingle beach located at the end of a strip of land separating Slapton Ley freshwater lake from the Start Bay coastline. The property has quick access to the South West Coast Path as well as a useful local shop/Post Office, tea shop and pub renowned for fresh local fish dishes, all within easy walking distance. The famous naval town of Dartmouth is a leisurely 8 miles drive away whilst the beautiful sandy beaches of East Portlemouth and Blackpool Sands can each be reached by car in around 10-15 minutes.
ENTRANCE From the courtyard parking area (for At The Beach apartments only) the entrance leads directly into a hallway off which is the en suite master bedroom and UTILITY/CLOAKROOM with w.c., basin and washer/dryer. A winding ash staircase leads up to the first floor living accommodation.
