About this property

In a coastal location only minutes from Mothecombe Beach. Beautifully presented 4 bedroom attached barn, lawned gardens, ample parking and double garage.

Architect designed in 2007, Swallows Meet is an excellent example of a professionally-executed barn conversion, taking advantage of the space available and the wonderful character of the old structure. The balance of the accommodation is good, with well-proportioned bedrooms, very adequate bathroom/shower room facilities, and a superb main living space. Many of the principal architectural details of this substantial barn have been carefully retained in this skillful conversion. While currently presented as a holiday home, it would easily form a spacious permanent residence. Outside, the level south facing garden could be developed to advantage by a gardening enthusiast.

This is in an outstanding location within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which will attract the outdoor enthusiast, within half a mile of the largely National Trust owned coast and the South West Coast Path. Mothecombe Beach is renowned as one of the most idyllic in the South Hams and is in very close proximity. The nearby villages of Holbeton, Newton Ferrers and Yealmpton include a wide range of facilities including good pubs, primary schools, various local shops and Post Offices, Health Centre, garage, churches, village halls and other amenities.

Mains water, electricity and gas. Gas combination boiler providing hot water and central heating. Private drainage via septic tank.


Very strictly by appointment only through Marchand Petit (Newton Ferrers office). Tel 01752 873311.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.

In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
