    “A ‘wow’ property, beautiful spacious barn conversion in a lovely peaceful location.”

    The only outside sounds we heard were birds singing, nearby cattle at feeding time and the bell ringing of the local church. Every little detail had been thought of to make our stay comfortable. All you could ever want in the fabulous kitchen, spacious comfortable lounge area and bedrooms, games room, plenty of hot water to service the 5 bathrooms with ample outside space. As parents with our older teens & grandparents too we all agreed a lovely base to our holiday, couldn’t of been better. If I had to mention anything I would say it maybe should be more clear that although ground floor bedrooms the other facilities are all first floor via fairly steep staircase.

The property

Set within the beautiful countryside close to the village of Sherford, Higher Hill Barn is a stunning barn conversion, presented to a high, contemporary standard whilst retaining many of its original features and charm.

2-3 miles away is the market town of Kingsbridge and around 10 miles away is Salcombe.

The Blue Flag award-winning beach at Bigbury-on-Sea is a 15-20 minutes’ drive away, as is Blackpool Sands.

The two-storey accommodation is mostly reverse level, with four of the five bedrooms on the ground floor, and the living space above, offering a superb base for extended families. Three of the bedrooms on the ground floor are double rooms, each with an oak King-size bed.

There is also a twin bedroom with two oak framed single beds.

Each of these bedrooms has a fully-tiled en suite shower room.

On the first floor is a bunk bed room with adjacent family bathroom.

On the first floor is a superb open plan living area with high vaulted ceiling and original cross beams, with a beautiful, modern kitchen at one end.

The dining area has a large oak table seating ten guests.

The charming, spacious living area has two very large sofas, a wood-burning stove and a Juliet balcony.

Tri folding doors lead out to the upper terrace, furnished for al fresco dining.

Also on the first floor is a snug room, offering an additional sitting area. Outside is a two-tiered lawn and a pond, an outbuilding housing a playroom with pool table and table football, plus a private drive with parking for 5-6 cars.

Bunk beds suitable for adults

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


The busy little town of Kingsbridge lies at the head of a marine estuary in the attractive South Hams area of south Devon. During the summer season there are river excursions to Salcombe to see the abundant wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast. Visitors can take a walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off Fore Street or visit the Shambles, an Elizabethan market arcade. Around the South Hams area there are picturesque ports, such as Dartmouth and Salcombe, together with sandy beaches at Blackpool Sands near Stoke Fleming and the two sandy beaches at Thurlestone. There are a host of small attractive villages in South Hams offering interesting pubs, local farm produce shops and pretty rows of cottages, plus further afield the waterfront city of Plymouth is a vibrant centre housing the National Marine Aquarium, historic Barbican Quay and plenty of nightlife, including theatres, restaurants and bars.

Strictly no smoking or pets are allowed.

For reasons of safety and comfort children under 5 years of age must be supervised in the gardens.
