About this Property

Scissor Beam Barn is a fabulously well appointed lofty barn conversion which is surrounded by picturesque and peaceful South Devon countryside, and is conveniently based for exploring the superb selection of South Hams beaches together with the coastline at Noss Mayo and also Wembury which is only 3 miles away.  In addition, the location is an ideal gateway to the delights of Dartmoor National Park.  This chic reverse level property offers luxurious and flexible accommodation for the discerning family.  The property has been tastefully transformed and the interior belies a superb balance of modernisation combined with charm and original character reflected in its vaulted ceiling and exposed scissor beams.  Indeed, the handful of properties located along the leafy lanes at Spriddlestone are mentioned in the historic Doomsday Book for their Holy Waters.  The barn is an extended wing of the owner's home who have carefully designed the property to provide maximum privacy to their guests.
