Approaching from Exeter / A30 West of from Cornwall / A30 East:-

Leave the A30 at Whiddon Down exit signposted A382. After the service station on the right, turn right signposted Winkleigh, Torrington and Spreyton. After a further mile, as you head back over the A30, turn right signposted Spreyton. After 2.5 miles, at the crossroads, turn left in to Spreyton. Go past the Tom Cobley public house and the entrance to The Barton is on the left just after the church.


The Barton is located within in a secluded setting and accessed off the village road. Spreyton is a small idyllic Devon village with community events and a beautiful Parish Church. The local well stocked community shop is open 7 days a week and is run by the local community. It is a great place to get to know the villagers as well as shopping for your daily essentials. The Post Office is open on certain afternoons and there is also a local hairdresser nearby. In the heart of the village is the regionally renowned and welcoming 'Tom Cobley Tavern' providing a real local community hub as well as bringing in visitors from far and wide due to its well earned reputation of being an acclaimed rural Public House.


The Barton is a substantial Grade II* listed detached farmhouse occupying a large level plot of approximately 0.5 acres within the settlement boundary of Spreyton. The 16th Century character house was probably the village manor originally, some form of open hall house that had major alterations in the 17th Century. There are significant historic touches throughout the house including small field panelling and some side pegged jointed cruck beams on the first floor. The Listed building notes state: "The ceilings on the ground and first floor are unusually high which must indicate a 16th Century house of high status".

The Barton has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme. The property has been restored to the highest standards using traditional methods. Especially worthy of note are the oak panelled walls, exposed beams, restored plasterwork, flagstone floors and a beautiful new thatch. Although restored in a traditional style the property has managed to include many modern features including underfloor heating and a pressurised water system.
