The boot/utility room has the extra sink for washing out swimwear etc, A+ washing machine, A tumble drier, plus dog basket and bowls for the doggy guests - due to the open plan nature of the Stone Barn living area we ask that pets sleep in the boot room or the purpose built private kennel in the courtyard. A large enclosed garden is laid mainly to lawn - great for ball games and running around generally or just enjoying the peace and quiet away from any busy traffic noise, in fact away from any noise other than the wildlife and nearby farm animals. There are wooden benches made from recycled cartwheels and 2 picnic benches which look like wood but are in fact made from recycled plastic - these stand in the lovely protected sandstone courtyard. A BBQ is also provided during the summer months - please ask if you require it at other times. Guests at the Stone Barn have exclusive use of the Wildlife Activity Room in the small barn conversion next door (owners will advise of any arranged educational visits which happen occasionally). Have a go at wildife activities prepared by the Devon Wildlife Trust, watch the live pictures from the hidden wildlife camera in the specialist bat attic or just have a game of table tennis. Guests can also follow the wildlife nature trails through the owners 130 acre estate from the doorstep. Arrange for a guided walk or just explore with a map, find hidden bird and bat boxes, ponds, activity points, wildlife hides and learn about the wildlife of Devon.
