Lower Barn House occupies a wonderful elevated spot, just two miles from the sought after village of Lustleigh which lies in a stunning setting on the Eastern edge of the Dartmoor National Park. This thriving village has a strong community with a well-regarded pub, village store, tea rooms, church and cricket ground. The town of Bovey Tracey (6 miles) has an excellent range of day-to-day amenities. The hilltop town of Moretonhampstead (3 miles) has a similar range of facilities. Although the property is situated in an unspoilt rural part of the West Country, the property is only six miles from the A38 which links Plymouth and Cornwall to the south and Exeter and the M5 motorway to the north. Both cities have rail links to London whilst Exeter has an international airport.
Being within the Dartmoor National Park, there are many thousands of beautiful, unspoilt moorland acres on the doorstep in which to enjoy a wide range of outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and fishing.DESCRIPTION

There is a pleasant orchard together with summerhouse and greenhouse. From the drive a further wooden gate leads to a further gravelled area in front of a detached barn. Of stone elevations under a corrugated iron roof with water and electricity coonected, this is currently used as storage but would suite other purposes including studio or stabling.
