An outstanding apartment in the conversion of an old Monastery set within an 80 acre estate.

The presence of much of the original stone and granite fabric of this converted Cistercian monastery, the high ceilings, oak floors and tall windows contribute towards making this Grade II Listed property, reconstructed between 2005 and 2008 an impressive and luxurious home. The exceptionally high quality of the fixtures and fittings and the innovative internal design give a contemporary twist to an historic building.

This fabulous first floor apartment is approached up 2 flights of glass balustraded wooden stairs which leads to the front door within a brick arch. A glass panelled entrance hall has coat cupboards and a cloakroom and leads to the magnificent reception room.

The high ceilings and engineered oak floor make this room ideal for entertaining; it is currently laid out with sitting, dining and study areas. 3 tall sash windows make this a particularly light room overlooking the grounds and the lovely countryside views beyond. A brick arch and steps lead down into the kitchen which includes anisland unit, laminate and glass panelled wall and floor mounted units, high specification appliances and a south facing window with deep window seat. A utility room with loft hatch is adjacent to the kitchen, housing the hot water tank, boiler, a butler sink and a location for laundry appliances. Throughout the apartment zonal underfloor heating facilitates easy positioning of furniture.

An oak staircase with glass balustrade leads up to 3 en suite double bedrooms and a fourth bedroom. There is abundant fitted cupboard storage space throughout the upper floor.

This property has 80 acres of land.


Cloisters has its own allocated garage with mezzanine work shop within the separate garage complex and the site enjoys plenty of general visitor parking. There are superb communal leisure facilities. The spectacular Chapel pool building houses a 12m pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, and two gyms. Outside, owners have access to an all weather tennis court and wonderful walks over the entire 80 acres of the Wood Barton estate which runs down to the River Avon, on which there are fishing rights.


Wood Barton is just outside the charming village of Woodleigh in the beautiful and unspoilt Avon Valley. The village of Loddiswell is close by providing basic amenities and a primary school, while the market town of Kingsbridge has a vibrant local community with its own cottage hospital, primary school, college and usual range of shops, pubs and restaurants. The bus to the well regarded KCC secondary school stops outside the property. Both Exeter and Plymouth are within easy reach offering a wider range of leisure, commercial, retail and business opportunities.

Communications are good with the A38 dual carriageway within 9 miles providing fast access to Plymouth and the M5 at Exeter. An intercity rail service is available from Totnes.

The estuaries and beaches for which the South Hams is famous are within easy reach providing every opportunity for a diverse range of water sports and the area is well served with 5 golf courses.


From the A38 take the Ugborough exit and then the B3196 to Loddiswell, taking a left turn after the BP garage at California Cross, signed Loddiswell. Go through Loddiswell, down hill and over the river and immediately turn left signed Woodleigh and Preston. After 2 miles, and having passed through Woodleigh, take the left turn into Wood Barton. Go down the tree lined drive and take the left fork to the Monastery where there is visitor parking – two spaces beside the garages or behind the tennis court.
