Big holiday house sleeping 19 with a hot tub and games room near Totnes and the coast for family get togethers and celebrations
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. The Shippon, Totnes, South Devon, sleeps 6 - 19 in 10 bedrooms.
Would you like to be sitting in a hot tub with your favourite drink enjoying the sweeping view of some of Devon's best countryside and the River Dart? If the answer is yes then look no further than this colossal former barn. This isn't the only thing that the home doubles up on, as there are also two Webber coal barbecues on the patio for grilling up smoky flavours, which lucky guests will be able to enjoy underneath the parasols on the alfresco dining area. There are also two fire pits, located in perfect places to sit back and relax whatever the weather, soaking up the peace and quiet of this beautiful valley.
This is very much an address where outdoor pursuits are catered for. On the grounds, there's a fenced, hard playground area that can be used for tennis and other games; a trampoline and children's play area; a large flat grassed area for a game of football or croquet; and beyond the perimeters, there's plenty to see. The town of Totnes takes 40 minutes to reach on foot, and is full of eclectic independent cafes, shops and boutiques, as well as award winning restaurants. Plus there is a local pub 20 minutes walk away, perfect for a pie and a pint. Fancy a surf or sea swim? There are a number of beaches — including those at Broadsands and Bantham — that can be reached in less than half an hour by car.
But if you just want to stay indoors for the day — or if the weather leaves you with no choice — there's a games room on the top floor that has tables for both foosball and ping pong, as well as another stunning view out of the floor-to-ceiling window. Satellite internet provides for all your streaming needs, or alternatively, there’s nothing to stop you curling up on one of the sofas in the living room with a book in hand and the log-burner crackling away comfortingly in the background.
