HOW TO GET THERE From Luscombe Maye's Office in Fore Street turn right and walk down Church Street passing the Butcher's, Fish & Chip Shop and Co-op on your left hand side. Towards the bottom of Church Street you will find an archway on the left. Through this you will find a hidden courtyard where Wesley Barn is situated. 

DESCRIPTION Wesley Barn is believed to have been built about 250 years ago and is of a similar age to Chapel Cottage next door. It is built of local granite blocks and river stone under a slate roof, with ancient timbers which may well have been salvaged from ships. The adjoining property was the original Methodist chapel in the village and is believed to have been visited in the mid-18th Century by John Wesley, who is said to have slept in the "barn next door" which is now the property for sale. The barn was converted some 25 years ago and has been in one ownership since the conversion was completed. It is now vacant and has been refurbished and modernised over the last few months and now provides very comfortable and extensive accommodation. On the ground floor are two bedrooms, one of which would make an excellent study, a shower room and a kitchen/dining room. Upstairs is a delightful triple aspect living room with a balcony, two further bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and a family shower room. Outside there is a private parking space in the enclosed courtyard and a delightful sunny and well stocked walled garden to the rear. 

SOUTH BRENT The moorland village of South Brent stands under the southern foothills of Dartmoor National Park, and on the northern edge of the lovely South Hams fifteen miles from the centre of Plymouth.

The village is one with a strong community with churches, a primary school, shops, and a post office. There are well-regarded community colleges at Totnes and Ivybridge, each with a wide range of facilities for the wider community. The ancient market town of Totnes is within about eight miles and some of the finest beaches on the south coast are within easy reach.

Situated just off the A38 Expressway, the village is well placed for quick access to Plymouth, Torbay and Exeter for which there are regular bus services.
