Outstanding is the word for this magnificent property, Old Traine Barn is a 14th Century tithe barn for Modbury Church with an adjacent smaller barn Old Traine Cottage. Both properties have been converted to the highest standard. Within the mellow ancient walls the light, spacious living areas have large windows that overlook the low walled gardens with meadows and hills beyond. The beautifully finished kitchens and bathrooms, fine oak and slate floors, slate window sills, gothic style wall lamps and bedsteads and handsome comfortable furniture combine to make these exceptional properties. Situated on the outskirts of the charming town of Modbury with its dignified terraced houses and enticing old fashioned shop windows that give it a timeless character. This little town is a hive of activity and is readily accessible to wonderful beaches at Wonwell, Mothecombe and Bigbury, and only half an hour from Dartmoor or the historic city of Plymouth. Garden furniture and barbecues are supplied. The barns are located at the end of a quiet unmade road.
