Willowplatt Barn is a stylish Devon stone barn dating back to 1787, and recently converted into this peaceful, reverse-level contemporary home, designed to complement the surrounding AONB in this secluded tributary valley above the River Avon estuary.

Set just across the estuary bridge from the tiny village of Aveton Gifford, Willowplatt Barn is perfectly placed to explore this popular holiday area, with the long sandy beaches of Bantham, Bigbury and Thurlestone all less than 5 miles’ drive. Aveton Gifford has a cosy pub and village shop, and the nearby towns of Kingsbridge and Salcombe offer a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants, and are also hubs for sailing and other water-based activities.

The property is surrounded by beautiful walking country, and a five minute walk leads down to the estuary and its Devon Wildlife Trust Reserve. Here you can access the 8-mile circular Avon Estuary Walk, which connects with the South West Coastal Path at Bantham. Reached along a quarter-mile largely unmetalled farm track, the barn is situated on a no-through road, so there is no passing traffic other than those visiting the neighbouring property some 200 metres further along the track. Architect designed and craftsman built, Willowplatt Barn - taken from an old farming name for ‘the place where the willows grow’ - is a charming place to stay with family or a group of friends at any time of year.

Please note: children aged 6 years and under cannot be accommodated here, as the ironwork staircase and hallway steps cannot be fitted with stairgates.
