Stone Hurrel Barn occupies a delightful position within the small rural hamlet of Larcombe, an historic and ancient former farmstead. The surrounding countryside is particularly unspoilt and provides excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits, especially walking and riding. The nearby village of Diptford is about 1 ½ miles and offers an excellent primary school whilst Totnes, gateway to the South Hams is approximately 5 miles. This celebrated market town, famed for its colour and diversity provides an interesting range of small shops, cafes and restaurants, galleries, secondary education and a mainline railway station to London Paddington. The South Devon coast, the Dartmoor National Park and the A38 dual carriageway are all within easy motoring distance.
