Steve Clayton purchased this barn in 2015
What can I say. Everything catered for and allows me to pen my thoughts as follows...
Lanes so narrow they grasp you in their shady warmth
Beyond....A serene landscape where calmness rules
Where silence is a whispering wind or a warbling unseen bird
An honest life lived by the fruits of ones tools
A sunrise over a sculpted shore
Or a sunset over the insanely coloured moors
In between time stands still and senses benumbed
By the flora, fauna, history and all its allure
Spent a week here and yet I could invest a life
And still discover new secrets whispered in keen ears
For now I've got memories and tales to tell
Of a place I'll always hold dear
I booked this let in May and was in immediate contact with Steve the owner, and the communication has been excellent throughout the booking procedure and the stay. Fescue is part of a really interesting stable block conversion with several lets of various sizes, all set in really well maintained communal gardens, with a tennis court ( we loved this) and a table tennis table in the middle laundry building.
The description of the let was spot on, and it is a quirky "upside down" house with the sitting area on the top floor and bedrooms and kitchen on the 1st 2 floors. The property was clean, loads of towels provided, and had a kitchen with everything you could want. The sitting area was large and comfortably sat the six of us. 2 bath/ shower rooms were great for managing 6 people too!
I would recommend the Ship Inn in Noss Mayo for top end pub food, and excellent local beer. There is loads to do. Our aim was to find a beach. There is one 1/2 mile down the lane, but it is a bit of a trek. However Bigbury on Sea about 40 mins (12 miles) away was perfect for paddling, swimming, surfing, cricket, football, beach combing, rockpooling etc etc etc. (Get there early as it gets v busy if the weathers good). Theres loads to do around and about. Plymouth Hoe, and Salcombe are worth a visit. (bring plenty of change for car parking).
I would recommend this let. Cheers Steve for having us!!#
