Accommodating eight guests (plus two with use of the futon beds), this contemporary conversion lies in an excellent unspoilt coastal position within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Apple Barn is situated at the head of a valley leading down to the estuary, with beautiful views to Salcombe and the sunsets. It’s a wonderful location for coastal walks, beaches and peace.

Apple Barn comprises two self-contained barns, and an enclosed porch area connecting the first floor of the Lower Barn to the ground floor of the Top Barn. Both come complete with their own kitchen, dining and sitting rooms with wood burning stoves, making the combined accommodation perfect for groups and two families holidaying together. The combination provides four bedrooms with king or super king beds, all except one convert to twins. In addition to the main bedrooms, Top Barn features a loft room with two additional single futon beds that are a fun option for older children wanting their own space. It has a double height sitting room and terrace with magnificent views down the valley. Lower Barn boasts a spacious open plan living area featuring a large dining table seating eight guests, ideal for everyone to socialise and enjoy time together. With underfloor heating throughout Apple Barn offers the perfect rural escape whatever the weather and time of year.

Several sandy beaches are within a 15-minute walk and nearby car parks include the National Trust car park at Mill Bay. There are scenic walks in all directions from the property including spectacular sections of the South West Coast Path and a track leading down to Mill Bay and the Salcombe Estuary. The peaceful, idyllic location is perfect for families and those who love coastal walks, sandy beaches and sailing.
