A self-contained annexe is ideal for guests, extended family or to generate an income, whilst outside the lawned gardens have a central stream running through.

Higher Barn occupies an outstanding position in a most beautiful and peaceful valley, close to the stunning South Devon coastline and South West Coastal path. Although the property is found in a rural setting, it is just 3 miles from the Penn Inn roundabout and is accessible to excellent local amenities. The pretty villages of Combeinteignhead and Stokeinteignhead are close by, with the latter having an OFSTED-rated Outstanding Primary School, 14th Century church, village shop and public house. The Church House Inn is approximately 1 mile away. A Sainsbury's supermarket and Marks & Spencer store are located approximately 3 miles away on the edge of Torquay and the local Waitrose store is approximately 3 miles away also.
The coastal area of Torbay has a good range of everyday services and conveniences, in addition to its beautiful Marina and waterside attractions. The city of Exeter provides a wide range of retail, cultural and educational facilities. The nearby mainline station of Newton Abbot offers a direct service to London Paddington in less than 3 hours and the A38 and its onward connections to the north of the country via the M5 motorway is within easy reach.
The well regarded Grammar Schools of Torquay Boys, Torquay Girls and Churston Grammar School are all within easy reach. The independent Stover School is also within short travelling distance.
From the city of Exeter, follow the A380 towards Torquay. Keep on this road, until you reach the Penn Inn roundabout, where you take the first exit signposted Shaldon. After a short distance, turn right at the traffic lights and proceed up over St. Marychurch Road, staying on this road for approximately 2.5 miles until you see the small sign for Rocombe on your left. Turn left here and proceed down over the hill. The road will fork so stick to the right. At the junction at the bottom of the hill, turn right over the small speed bumps and the property will be found just after the bend on the right hand side opposite the thatched lychgate.
