The Old Granary is the perfect peaceful Devon retreat a place to recharge your batteries, relax with a glass of wine & a good book take long walks in the lush green country side. Wander up to the local inn for a meal & real ale or snuggle up by the log burner for a quiet evening in. If you feel more energetic it is the ideal place to explore the rest of Devon & all it has to offer.Surfing beaches on the north coast pretty villages & quaint seaside towns to the south. Cornwalls attractions are within easy reach too. Cycle the Tarka trail. Visit historic stately homes & gardens.
