Overview

About the property

Converted Barn in West Buckland, Near Bantham, South Devon, England

Langmans Bothy is south facing and sheltered from the wind making it a really relaxing place to stay. The spacious living room with mini kitchen will provide you with everything you need to be self contained. This is an ideal space for a couple seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of our busy world.

It is only 4 miles from Kingsbridge, our closest town for shops etc.

The beaches are just a 15 minutes walk away.

About David Martin

Anna and David live here permanently in what was the farmhouse in earlier times. Langmans Bothy was a farm building which has had many uses in its time but perhaps its last use was for the farm workers. We decided to restore it into a separate, self contained cottage for a couple seeking the peace and tranquillity in this beautiful part of Devon. We care for and look after the property ourselves and do not rely on contractors or agents for any service and consequently we are always on hand to attend to any of your needs.

David Martin purchased this barn in 2002

Why David Martin chose South Hams

Having spent holidays in this area for years we decided to settle here permanently. The Bothy was perfect for conversion into holiday accommodation. West Buckland is in a peaceful valley but very close to the beautiful beach and estuary at Bantham, and also good golf courses at Thurlestone and Bigbury.

What makes this barn unique

Peace and quiet, convenient access to the beaches and messing about in boats. Walking, both coastal and inland, is a must. We also enjoy playing tennis at Thurlestone. The Thurlestone Hotel has all the amenities of a good hotel, including and excellent restaurant, good bar, hairdresser and beautician.

Peaceful hideaway, amazing views and fantastic facilities. Lovely little extras from the owners too

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location for a quiet getaway but close enough to amenities and beaches that you don't need to spend hours in the car getting places. Plenty to do in the local area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice and thoughtful review. Your point about space to exercise a dog is fair but we have small grandchildren who play in our small garden.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay allowing us to experience the true South Devon countryside with our favourite place Salcombe, much as I remember it many years ago

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable stay in this sensitively renovated and well equipped former farm building.

Perfect location-very peaceful yet only a short walk to local pubs (2), Bantham beach and wonderful coastal walks.

We would very much like to stay here again.

Hidden Gem

Very high standard of accommodation, great attention to detail, a perfect retreat, lovely quiet location with short walk to beautiful beaches. The underfloor heating makes it a cosy winter getaway. We will go back and thoroughly recommended it.

Fresh and well kept

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful part of the world. Owners were very accommodating and thoughtfully provided home baked bread and breakfast provisions for your first breakfast. Nearby beaches perfect for surfers, dog walkers ( own beach) and were clean and safe for children and just a leisurely 15mins walk away. Great local pub 10mins walk with good quality pub food and superb fish and chips. Enjoyed our short break.
