DESCRIPTION
The Barn and Pinn Cottage is 500 years old, the vendors have refurbished it with loving care and consideration for both guests and the property. Everything has been done in keeping with the character of the cottage. No expense has been spared in the renovation of this old cottage, the outbuildings have been renovated to the same exacting standards as the main building offering deluxe living, and several possible business additions to this already thriving B&B.

The Barn and Pinn Cottage is located a 5 minute drive away from the seafront of Sidmouth and is situated in the countryside with beautiful walks directly on their doorstep. The Barn and Pinn Cottage is situated in the middle of its 2 acre gardens and is set well back from the main road. There are beautiful gardens at the front gently slope up to the road with flat paths around the cottage. The paths are of block paving and flagstones, this is mainly a flat site with only a small slope to the private car park at the back which has 10 numbered bays. Each room has its own allocated space.

The driveway and car park are tarmac, where guests can be dropped off by the front door if they wish.
The gardens surrounding the property has seating areas both in the front garden and also at the back. There is a smaller garden which has a gently sloping gravel pathway just by the pond‚ leading to a really peaceful sunny area for guests to use.

Next to this garden‚ to one side of the property there is a private garden (separated into 2) for the sole use of guests staying in the Luxury rooms which are 9 & 10.

The main driveway is directly opposite the entrance to the Bowd Inn Pub car park. Follow the private driveway past 2 small cottages to Pinn Cottage and the driveway goes round to the right which takes you to the private car park at the back of the property.

The property benefits from all modern facilities. All hallways and the landing have automatic sensor lighting on both the wall and ceiling lights so there is no need to look for light switches and the fire alarm system has emergency lights which lead guests to the exits.

Currently operating as a bed and breakfast/guest house with licensed restaurant. It has a large vegetable garden which supplies good home grown ingredients for the Restaurant. It is also licences as Tea Rooms. Tea Rooms are not currently run by present owners but the Tea Room sign and furniture is in place if required.

PROPERTY
The Barn and Pinn Cottage is 500 years old. It has been refurbished to an amazing standard rarely seen in such properties and the vendors are exceptionally proud of their feedback and comments by the guests with reference to their stay and property in general.

The main building is grade 2 listed and is a typical thatched cottage with cob walls with predominant oak timbers in many of the rooms and public places.

In addition to this the original outbuildings have been renovated to the same standard as the main building to form extra accommodation.

The site also benefits from a large detached new build bungalow built by the vendors within the grounds, this property being separated by a large fence and acts as the owner's accommodation. Like the main property the specification within the build is ultra deluxe and is a credit to the vendors and included within the sale.

The business has excellent scope to expand and develop further and is reluctantly offered for sale due to the retirement of the vendors.
