From Okehampton take the B3215 north east where signposted to Crediton. After about 4 miles there is a lane serving two properties on your right hand side giving access to Lower Incott Barn. The turning is before you get to Belstone Corner Bridge.


Lower Incott Barn formed part of the neighbouring farm. Our existing clients converted both the main property and the two bedroom cottage. Both conversions were overseen by Mike Wye associates, specialists in natural and sustainable building of period properties. Every effort has been made to create a spacious home with the former character of the barn with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. Energy Efficiency was at the forefront of the plans with insulation installed where possible and the introduction of a ground source heat pump and underfloor heating. Unlike some barn conversions, the site enjoys complete privacy. The rear windows of the main house look over the 5 acres of land that gently slopes downwards allowing far reaching views over woodland towards neighbouring countryside.
