Butterwell Barn is a superbly presented and very well equipped holiday home, newly converted and available from Autumn 2017. Situated in a peaceful rural location, just 10 minutes drive from Dartmouth’s waterfront, boutique shops and restaurants, as well as the stunning Start Bay coastline and beaches, the barn offers spacious and very comfortable, reverse-level accommodation for up to eight guests. Boasting four en suite bedrooms, each with super-King size beds (ie. 6’), the property is perfect for extended family parties, two families holidaying together or up to four couples looking for for a special break in delightful surroundings. The 19th Century Victorian barn retains much of its original character including high vaulted ceilings, beautiful oak beams and stonework. The first floor living, dining and kitchen areas in particular are huge, offering a fabulous space for entertaining, whilst the four bedrooms (all on the ground floor) ensure guests each have a double room with en suite facilities. Outside there is plenty of parking for up to four cars plus a substantial stone terrace with garden table, sun loungers and large firepit/barbecue!
Stay at Butterwell Barn in Jan, Feb, March and visit the lambs being born on our sister farm. Help feed any hungry lambs and you might even see one being born. Visits to the lambs should be prearranged for Saturdays so that we can dedicate time to you. Whilst dogs are welcome at Butterwell Barn, they would have to stay in your vehicle during your visit to the lambs. Pregnant ladies will not be able to attend.
