    “TAKE A 3D TOUR” This stunning Grade II Listed detached barn conversion takes up a wonderful rural location, it stretches to nearly 3,000sqft & with over 10 acres in total, incl. land, woodland (4 acres), a lake, stream, gardens & parking, plus a modern detached agricultural barn and a further cob store barn.

    This beautiful Grade II Listed detached barn was converted during 2001 using an abundance of locally sourced oak along with masses of glazing to create naturally light & character filled accommodation which stretches to 276 sqm / 2,977 sqft.

    The rural location feels completely unspoilt with a long lane (0.3miles) serving just this property & two neighbours. Crockernwell is a small village with great access to the wonderful Dartmoor National Park and the A30, it lies just a mile west of Cheriton Bishop (see village description) with its fantastic amenities including highly regarded primary school & doctors surgery; with Drewsteingnton & Fingle Bridge both under 2 miles away too.

    The spacious accommodation here includes six bedrooms served by two staircases (although removing the partition walls would make four great double bedrooms – subject to permissions), the master enjoys a full en-suite bathroom with shower & screen over the bath, plus a walk-in wardrobe; the guest bedroom also has an en-suite shower, with three of the four other bedrooms increasing their useable size with mezzanine areas for sleeping, studying or play. The attractive family bathroom includes a shower & screen over the bath too.

    Downstairs we have a fantastic open-plan living area with its impressive glazed wall to the front, a wood-burning stove and plenty of space for dining or a library/music area adjacent to the oak turning staircase. The farmhouse style kitchen diner is lovely, there is an in-keeping oil-fired Heritage range style cooker, a hidden pantry and floor tiles, with the handy utility room adjoining with space, power & plumbing for white goods, plus an additional sink, airing cupboard and innovative laundry slide from upstairs! The study (or ground floor bedroom) & shower room completes this floor, with the cellar room accessible via a turning staircase.


    The sweeping formal gardens lie to the west, south & east, with a good-sized lawn and a decked seating area taking in the views. The spacious stone chipped parking area offers masses of parking for numerous cars. To the south is a substantial paddock (3.56acres) with a tree lined lake also lying to the west.

    To the north there is also an established woodland extending to over 4 acres, this provided the oak used in the main staircase and within the barn when converted during 2001.


    A substantial modern detached barn (45ft x 15ft) has been erected in the last 10 years, it offers great flexibility for the next owner to adapt for their own purposes whether it be vehicle storage/keeping animals etc. To the front of the property is a traditional rectangular threshing barn with attached roundhouse, linhay (all giving potential for the future) & separate log shed with courtyard which are all cob.

    *Please note, the long private lane is used by the three properties here and it gives great privacy, it’s useable without a 4×4 the vast majority of the time.

    Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

    CROCKERNWELL is ideally situated, only a mile from the neighbouring village of Cheriton Bishop which has a good range of local amenities including post office, general stores, church, primary school and a public house. Crockernwell is also about 1½ miles from the A30 which provides very easy access to the Cathedral City of Exeter, some 12 miles distant whilst the towns of Okehampton, Chagford, Bovey Tracey and Newton Abbot are also within easy travelling distance. Crockernwell is situated on the northern boundary of the Dartmoor National Park and is about 2 miles from the pretty village of Drewsteignton, having an ancient inn, restaurant, old parish church, pretty square and store/post office.

    CHERITON BISHOP is a village situated at the northern borders of Dartmoor National Park – between the City of Exeter and the town of Okehampton. The farmlands adjoining Cheriton undulate with true Devon character, gradually rising towards Dartmoor, where altitudes creep to heights in excess of 1000 ft above sea level. The village is ideally placed for hassle free access to the A30 dual carriageway, a direct injection into Exeter (10 miles) and a great route west to Cornwall. Facilities include, a parish church, two prosperous inns, a primary school and a Doctor’s surgery. Fancy sloshing a drink around and wiggling to a beat? For music lovers: Cheriton hosts two annual festivals at the Woodleigh Coach House – ‘The Gig in The Garden’ and ‘Jam in June’, the perfect opportunity to see some talented local acts.
