This property enjoys a central location in the village of Weare Giffard, right under the shadow of the handsome village church. There is a well-regarded pub in the village, which specialises in offering locally produced cider. The village is situated right on the famous Tarka Trail, a 32-mile walking and cycling route, which runs from north to south through some of Devon’s most scenic countryside. Other popular local attractions include the fascinating visitor centre at Dartington Crystal factory, the beautiful gardens at RHS Rosemoor, and the traditional former-fishing town of Bideford.

The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a welcoming and homely space, where guests can open the doors to the Juliet balcony and enjoy the views across the neighbouring countryside from the comfortable sofa seating. The property is also well-equipped to ensure guests have a relaxing stay, with a TV/DVD, and CD with iPod dock. The dining table seats two and is located next to the kitchen area, where there is an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher. A utility room on the ground-floor houses the washer/dryer. The property’s bedroom is a king-size room which can be made up as a twin on request, thanks to the zip-and-link beds.

One child can be accommodated on a temporary single fold away bed by arrangement with the owner. The bathroom is contemporarily styled and fully-tiled with a shower-over-bath and WC.

The Hayloft is a lovely cosy place to stay and very welcoming to come back to after a days sightseeing. It was equipped with everything you need. Its situated in beautiful North Devon and a short drive to Clovelly, Barnstaple, Instow, Ilfracombe and much more.

Cottage very well furnished with all facilities one could wish for. In secluded property adjacent to 2 others but not overlooked. Close to excellent walks. Villagers very friendly with short walk to a delightful local pub with great food and amazing range of ciders.

Although the Hayloft was in an idyllic peaceful location it was also close to many interesting attractions. Comfy bed, well equipped kitchen and up to date bathroom made our break very relaxing.
