The Stables, beautiful family friendly barn conversion in The South Hams

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedroom barn conversion in the South Hams near Salcombe & Dartmouth sleeps 5

The Stables is part of a former farm, now tastefully converted into a 2 bedroom property with open plan living, dining and kitchen space. The downstairs space is light filled and open plan, with tan leather sofas, a large TV and wifi, but retaining many original features with the added benefit of a lovely wood burner. From the lounge you can step outside to the sunny courtyard. The kitchen/ diner is very large and well equipped, with a large American style fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and coffee machine. You will also find the beautifully finished shower/ wetroom downstairs with toilet. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom with chunky oak superking sleigh bed, and a twin room which has an additional trundle bed meaning this room is large enough to sleep 3 adults. Alternatively, we can set this bedroom as a superking plus single or just a superking room. There is a further family bathroom upstairs with a sunken bath plus a separate shower. Being tastefully converted, the property retains many features, and is just a great combined space for families or friends to meet and have a great holiday. Outside the property benefits from a courtyard with table and chairs, plus you also get to enjoy the benefits of the shared areas for the residents and the guests of Fallapit. These areas include a tennis court, tree house, climbing frame, swing & even a fire pit for those evenings when you can sit outside with a glass of wine under the stars! The property is within easy walking distance to the nearby village of East Allington, where you will find the fabulous Fortescue Arms pub, which offers a traditional Devonshire pub experience, where we highly recommend the Sunday roast, as well as sampling some of their amazing gins!! You're located a few miles from the nearest town of Kingsbridge, approximately 20 minutes from Salcombe and Dartmouth, and the nearest beaches are also reachable by car in about 20 minutes. We welcome up to 2 doggies.

The Stables, beautiful family friendly barn conversion in The South Hams
average rating of 4.3333335 based on 8 reviews

Lovely property

  • 4 of 5

The Stables was a beautiful place to stay. Nice quality furnishings (white company bed linen) gorgeous bathrooms (loved the shower) and a really well equipped kitchen. It suited our needs very well.

The carrot cake and drink waiting for us on arrival was a nice treat.

On a practical level small things that could be provided that weren’t; salt and pepper, tin foil and cling film. No big deal but would have been handy to have.

Nice base for exploring South Devon
