Luxurious North Devon Rural Retreat With a Hot Tub. Sleeps 6. Pets Welcome.

Tumbledown Barn is a beautifully renovated North Devon holiday cottage located in the picturesque village of Knowstone. Originally a cow shed, it offers luxury accommodation with original stone and cob walls, old oak beams, and a spacious open-plan living area. This pet-friendly property is on 20 acres of farmland, providing stunning scenic views.

The accommodation at Tumbledown Barn is perfect for families or groups of up to six guests. The property features three large bedrooms with king-sized beds and ensuite bathrooms. One of the king-sized beds can also be converted into twin beds if needed. The open-plan living, kitchen, and dining area is ideal for social evenings. Guests can cook meals, enjoy drinks, and relax in front of the wood-burning stove.

The barn is equipped with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. Wi-Fi, heating, and electricity are included. Towels and bed linen are provided for all guests. A cot is available for those travelling with young children. Up to two dogs are welcome by prior arrangement, with a small supplement per dog.

The property’s features are equally impressive. A private courtyard includes a hot tub, an outdoor kitchen, and a dog bath. This space is perfect for alfresco dining and relaxation. The courtyard’s south-facing patio is accessible through large French doors from the living area, making it an excellent spot for morning coffee or evening wine.

Tumbledown Barn is set in a quiet, delightfully remote rural location within Exmoor National Park. It is an easy drive to the beautiful sandy beaches on the north coast. The area is a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. Guests can explore numerous hiking trails, including the Two Moors Way, which stretches from Lynmouth on the North Coast to Ivybridge in Dartmoor.

After a day of outdoor activities, guests can visit the nearby Michelin-starred Masons Arms restaurant, just a short stroll away. This provides an excellent dining option for those who wish to experience fine cuisine in a charming setting.

The property offers ample parking, and electric vehicle charging is available for a small fee. Guests can arrive from 4 pm and must depart by 10 am. A security deposit of £200 is required, pre-authorised against the guest’s card. This deposit is released after the stay, provided the property is not damaged.

In summary, Tumbledown Barn is a luxury holiday home in Knowstone that blends rustic charm and modern comfort. Its spacious accommodation, pet-friendly policy, and beautiful rural setting make it an ideal choice for a relaxing holiday in North Devon.
