Lower Curscombe Barn, a beautiful conversion of a 400-year-old threshing barn, comprises two adjacent properties together sleeping 12. Perfect for those who want to chill and relax with a little time to themselves, each spacious property is self-contained enjoying its own facilities.
The landscape here is truly amazing with numerous countryside walks from the doorstep and the Devon coast within easy reach. The spacious interiors provide an ideal setting for families and groups of friends, whether for a special celebration or just for a wonderful holiday and welcomes up to four well-behaved dogs.
Situated on a quiet, semi-working farm in the tiny hamlet of Curscombe, Lower Curscombe Barn boasts charming features and is elegantly furnished throughout with great attention to detail.
