Beautifully furnished barn conversion with quirky design features and private patio and hot tub. A couple’s dream, a peaceful, idyllic retreat close to a village pub and easy reach of the coast.

One of two barns offering private and contemporary accommodation on this small working sheep farm. Beautifully finished and filled with rustic charm and quirky design features. You are welcome to explore the grounds and it’s especially lovely at Easter time when lambing takes place. The beautiful surrounding countryside is great for walkers and cyclists alike, and if you are looking to explore further afield, the gorgeous sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde and Dartmoor National Park are just a short drive away.

Stepping into the barn you immediately feel at home.

Cook up an intimate meal or quick lunchtime snack with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. A separate utility area houses the washing machine and freezer.

Nice cottage for any couples who are looking for a quiet place to stay. Good country walks around the farm. We met the owner when we got there and she was very welcoming and if anything needed just ask.

The sheep pen was very comfortable and warm , decorated beautifully and easy to find on the sat nav. Owners added a few complimentary treats which was lovely and our dog felt right at home .

We didnt want to come home! It was exactly what we wanted. We took our reactive dog and she was perfect. The garen was enclosed so she could go out (not that she wanted to go out in the rain - just incase she melted!) we didnt have to worry. We were far enough from things to feel like we were in our own world but close enough to amenities to not feRead moreel cut off. The welcome basket was lovely too. Walks in the area were amazing too. A perfect way to spend New Year! Hide
