Beautifully converted former barn enjoying a quiet rural location on a working farm, within easy reach of beaches on Devon and Cornwall’s northern coasts.

This property is located on the owner’s farm, where it is one of three holiday cottages. Just one mile from the village of Shebbear, where there is a mobile post office and a welcoming village pub, guests can enjoy the peaceful surroundings without feeling cut off. The local area has a wide range of interesting towns, villages, and attractions, such as the attractive harbour town of Bideford, the Cornish seaside resort of Bude, the two mile wide sandy beach at Westward Ho, the private village of Clovelly, and Dartmoor National Park, all of which are within a thirty minute drive of the property.

On entering this semi-detached barn conversion property, guests will be able to make themselves at home in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which clearly expresses the owner’s stylish sense of taste, with its slate floor, exposed beams, and cosy woodburner. At one end of the room, the lounge area is furnished with comfortable sofas, from which guests can relax and watch the Freeview TV/DVD. At the opposite end of this space, the kitchen/diner has a dining table seating four, an oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. A shared onsite laundry room houses a washing machine, tumble dryer and an ironing board, as well as a range of DVDs, books, games and wellingtons for guests to borrow. On the first floor of the property, there are two bedrooms: a spacious king-size room, and a cosy single, both of which benefit from their own TV/DVD. Guests should be aware that the upstairs rooms have some limited head height, due to the sloping ceilings. The bathroom is another generously sized room, which offers both a bath, separate shower cubicle and WC.

A door frothe first floor landing opens onto a flight of external wooden stairs, which lead down to the enclosed courtyard patio, where there is outdoor furniture and a BBQ, perfect for enjoying the peaceful surroundings in complete privacy. There is an additional patio area with seating to the rear of the property, which makes a lovely spot to enjoy drinks in the evening. In addition to this, guests are able to make use of a paddock, and the 12 acres of woodland that surround the farm. There is ample parking provided.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Really lovely place to stay. Everything you need in a beautiful setting.

It is a beautiful cottage, well equipped and thoughtfully done. It is very "out-of-the-way" as you would expect on a farm so be prepared. We didn't mind this as it was a lovely setting and very peaceful. The only other thing was the bed is extremely firm. Overall we had a lovely relaxing time.

Wonderful location, away from it all in beautiful surroundings. A warm welcome from the owners, super to have flowers, milk, eggs and dog biscuits upon arrival! We would highly recommend this property.

This is a beautiful cottage and I will be returning.

Reviewed by Trevor, 3rd March 2017

Don't want to make this review to nice as it would mean it would make it to popular as we want to go back and it might be booked! But this cottage is absolutely lovely. The attention to detail is spot on. The whole cottage has a loved feeling about it with quality furnishings and every gadget and utensil you could want. Even down to creaky floorboaRead morerds upstairs, that added to the character. Great shower and log burning fire. Olly the owner is really friendly and nothing seems to much trouble. Hide

Had a wonderful few days at fox barn. The owner and his animals very welcoming. Lovely woods to walk the dogs around. The barn itself is cosy with its wood burner and had everything we need. Would definitely recommend
