Description

Otter Pool Barn, is a large, spectacularly converted barn, with a hydrotherapy/spa pool and hot tub. It is surrounded by farmland, with a private five acre field and lake for fishing, and other water activities, set between Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and West Down in the Devonshire countryside, with Exmoor less than 10 miles to the East. Otter Pool Barn is a few miles from beautiful golden beaches and within easy reach of the market town of Barnstaple.

The barn has been carefully restored and converted in order to make all areas accessible and adapted, including hoists, induction loops and more.

The conversion of this centuries old, former threshing barn is dramatic, with a triple height majestic fireplace, hand crafted exposed ceiling beams, gargoyles and a Minstrel’s Gallery. The grand staircase has been relocated from an 18th century grand house and the wood panelling and stained glass are also reclamation treasures. It is extremely well equipped, featuring everything you might expect in a luxury holiday home.

Indoors there is the Great Hall, a snug lounge, a huge kitchen/diner, six bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Outdoors there is a sheltered, south facing, courtyard with barbecue and seating. The garden has children’s play equipment and a swim spa/hot tub, as well as the large field and lake.

Otter Pool Barn is fully accessible throughout, with the installation of a wheelchair lift to the upstairs.

Outside areas, the pool and into the adjacent land towards the lake are also accessible.

The discrete inclusion of accessibility features into the barn has enabled it to retain the atmosphere of a luxury family home, whilst being suitable for a holiday with anyone you want to include in your party.

Accessibility

  • Lift
    • At least 80cm x 130cm (width x depth)

With six accessible bedrooms, two downstairs and four upstairs, it is anticipated that any combination of family, friends, carers and mobility requirements can be catered for.

Four profiling beds are provided. Two in bedroom one (with the x-y ceiling hoist) and two in separate rooms upstairs, a mobile hoist is available if required. Visitors will need to bring their own slings to use with the hoists.

Doors throughout the property are oak and fitted to slide internally in the walls, minimising obstruction and enabling easy use, by those with limited mobility.

Floors are all level, with durable, low glare, non-slip surfaces ideal for use with walking aids or wheelchairs. External doors are fitted with flush doorsills to enable easy access.

Consideration has also been given to other fittings, including press button showers, with rain heads and hand spray facilities, shower seats are available and taps are lever operated.

Extra power sockets have been fitted throughout the property to enable easy access, regardless of bed layout and the snug lounge and bedroom lights are provided with dimmer switches. Additional floor standing lights are available throughout the house to enable lighting to be adjusted to suit visitor’s needs.

Bathrooms are large and have fully level access showers. The bath in the family bathroom is suitable for use with the mobile hoist. A toilet seat raiser is available and appropriate grab rails are provided in all bathrooms.

The pool is suitable for use as a hydrotherapy pool. Its temperature can be set. The linked hot tub allows access for everyone, with a removable partition to move from one part of the pool to the other (a reasonable level of mobility is required to remove/replace the partition) and a sling/chair hoist has been installed (chair provided) to enable access to those unable to get into the pool unassisted. The electrically operated cover allows single person use, as well as ensuring the pool is safely covered when not in use.
