Full Details

A perfect setting for a barn conversion, in the middle of glorious Devon, just minutes from the A30 for easy travel and set in it’s own 2 acres of land with a stream and copse woodland.

The barn was granted planning permission to convert into a 1500sqft holiday home in 2021 currently designed to have open plan living spaces, double bedrooms with a master ensuite and plenty of large windows to enjoy the setting. Staying within the footprint and adhering to building regulations, it should be possible to re-configure the internal layout to suit.

There is a private drive from the country lane (initially shared with the neighbouring property) but this is then for the sole use of the barn, winding down into the approx. 2 acre parcel of land. It’s currently been left to nature but it’s a mainly level plot with (former) grassed paddock and a small area of copse including the stream along the south east boundary.

An angle for many, with the land may well be equestrian holidays with access to be able to explore Dartmoor and Exmoor, ride on the beaches, visit the dressage training centre just 10 minutes away, and to be able to visit Bicton International arena for dressage, showjumping and eventing.

A barn for conversion of this size and location would usually command a significantly higher price if it had full residential permissions so it’s a great opportunity to have a large barn for a holiday home/holiday business plus with the land attached, there room to create a true Devon experience for those visiting.

Proceed for another 0.5 miles and the entrance to Horizon will be found on your left.

SPREYTON is a pastoral village, a whisker to the north of Dartmoor National Park. The lands here are high and open, with sweeping views, dry stone walls and roving winds. The village is legendary for its connection to the cherished character ‘Uncle Tom Cobley’ of Devon folklore. It is thought that his infamous trip to Widecombe Fair (from the song) may have started in what is now the Tom Cobley Tavern – a family run pub, with a distinctive thatched bar and winner of the 2016 (and 2015) ‘Exeter and East Devon’s CAMRA Rural Pub of the Year’ award. Supposedly, the local churchyard is also the final resting place of ‘Tom Cobley’ – but who really knows? Spreyton primary school is small, with a handful of pupils and benefits from attentive, dedicated teachers. For amenities there is a friendly, well-stocked village shop.
