An outstanding adaptation of a wonderful stone barn at the waters edge, Crabhall Barn is about a mile from the village of Dale. The design, decor and furnishings blend to create an interesting home with water views from each room. Rooms fold into each other linked by curved slate-treaded stairways. This is a kitchen to live in - the huge room is home to a long refectory table, dresser, gas Aga and comfy seating. Relax in the reception room in front of a log stove set into the rounded chimney breast. Well behaved pets are welcome, but this is a special location as its the haunt of many birds, some quite rare. Both ground floor rooms open onto the lawns.
Dale, popular with water sport enthusiasts because of its sheltered position has a waterside pub, The Griffin, a Yacht Club and water sports hire centre. There are some excellent beaches to choose from including Marloes Sands and West Dale Beach.
Crabhall Barn is an ideal holiday retreat with guests returning year after year.
Care needed due to unfenced water in the grounds.
