Full description

Detached barn conversion with further detached barn offering potential to develop! Includes three bedrooms with en-suite to master, vaulted ceilings to first floor including living room, kitchen and dining area, all with oil fired central heating and ample parking + option to purchase an acre.

Bowbeer Barn is a detached barn conversion set among two other converted barns and the main farmhouse, all found on the outskirts of the lovely village of Spreyton (see village description) with easy access to the A30 too. The current vendors have recently completed a private lane to serve the barn.

The well-presented accommodation includes three bedrooms to the lower ground floor, with the master enjoying an en-suite bathroom, built in wardrobes and double doors to the garden. There is also a recently installed shower room. The upper level has vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and includes a gorgeous living room with wood burning stove and a separate dining area which is open plan to the kitchen (stainless steel 5 ring, twin oven cooked available by negotiation). The property benefits from oil fired central heating throughout too.

Outside there is ample parking for numerous cars and a caravan/motor home if desired. The level gardens wrap around the property giving you pleasant seating areas. There is also a great sized fish pond with water feature.

Outbuildings: Approximately 5m (16ft) from the property is a detached barn of 10m x 5.3m (32ft x 17ft). We feel this offers great potential to be developed and incorporated in the main accommodation or to create a further residential or holiday cottage (subject to necessary permissions).

“The Orchard” is a field of nearly an acre where the current owners have created a private lane to Bowbeer Barn. The current owners would like to retain as much of this field as possible, but would be prepared to sell part or all of it for the right price.

Spreyton is a pastoral village, a whisker to the north of Dartmoor National Park. The lands here are high and open, with sweeping views, dry stone walls and roving winds. The village is legendary for its connection to the cherished character ‘Uncle Tom Cobley’ of Devon folklore. It is thought that his infamous trip to Widecombe Fair (from the song) may have started in what is now the Tom Cobley Tavern – a family run pub, with a distinctive thatched bar and winner of the 2016 (and 2015) ‘Exeter and East Devon’s CAMRA Rural Pub of the Year’ award. Supposedly, the local churchyard is also the final resting place of ‘Tom Cobley’- but who really knows? Spreyton primary school is small, with a handful of pupils and benefits from attentive, dedicated teachers. For amenities there is a friendly, well-stocked village shop.


Proceed to Bow (about 8 miles). When in the centre of the village turn left at Bow Village Cross (signed to Spreyton). Follow this road out of the village continuing for about a mile, proceed under a railway bridge and turn left signposted Hittisleigh/Hillerton just before a sharp right hand bend. Proceed on this road for about 2 miles. At Hillerton crossroads turn right (signed Spreyton), follow the lane for just under half a mile, the private driveway to the barn will be seen on the right hand side, take the first gate on the left.  


Leave the A30 dual carriageway at Merrymeet Roundabout by the A382 signed to Moretonhampstead. After approximately half a mile, in the centre of the village of Whiddon Down, turn right where signed to North Tawton.  Follow this road for about a mile and immediately after crossing over the A30, turn right where signed to Spreyton.  Proceed through Spreyton, taking the first right after approximately half a mile, signposted Hillerton and proceed for a further half a mile. The private driveway to the barns will be seen on the left hand side, just past the entrances to Bowbeer Farm, enter this lane & take the first gate on the left.
