Townend Barn

Detached and beautifully converted open plan barn in the grounds of Townend House in the centre of the historic Dartmoor village of Lydford. Calm and comfortable living space, well equipped for two/three people, with a wood burning stove and piano. Off road parking. 15 minutes walk to the moor and Lydford gorge. Great for stargazing as the village is without street lights. Three good restaurants/pubs within walking distance.
