Once a farm building, the Cowshed is now a delightful, all-year-round, 2 bedroom holiday home providing spacious accommodation for 4 in a tranquil setting 2 miles from Dulverton. At an elevation of 1000 ft asl it affords lovely views over the Barle Valley and to Dartmoor. It is a 3 mile walk to Tarr Steps and the Exmoor Pony Centre is just up the road. Retaining the original stone pillars and a vaulted ceiling in the living area, the accommodation is on one level, it is south facing with a veranda and has its own parking in a gated yard, secure for dogs and young children. ...Once a farm building, the Cowshed is now a delightful, all-year-round, 2 bedroom holiday home providing spacious accommodation for 4 in a tranquil setting 2 miles from Dulverton.
