|The Old Cob Barn was originally built about 200 years ago to |
house plough horses, probably ‘Cob horses’ so that its name has
a double meaning. The construction is of locally mined stone as
the foundation and end walls but the side walls were completed
with ‘cob’, the mixture of clay mud, straw and lime so much used
in this part of Devon. The barn is situated across a driveway from the Farmhouse where Sally and Jeremy live and has been sensitively converted by them to provide maximum privacy and spacious accommodation looking across the valley onto green hillsides, white-spotted with frolicking lambs.
Visitors will be able to see from a photograph album, the before
and after of the conversion that took place late 2001/ early 2002 from stable left uncleaned from the day the last animal left with collapsed roof to the great comforts that are offered today.
