Barnfield Holiday Cottage North Devon, England

Barnfield Holiday Cottage North Devon Family friendly Luxury Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage in Barnstaple, Devon, England


Barnfield is a beautifully restored Grade II 17th Century, thatched Devon Longhouse in the foothills of Exmoor. It offers luxury self-catering accommodation for 2-10 guests in 4 bedrooms (2 en-suite). Children and pets are welcome and catered for.

 

Spacious 17th Century thatched Devon village cottage sleeping 8-10 in 4 bedrooms

Barnfield stands on the edge of a quiet country village within the Exmoor National Park and an easy drive to North Devon's finest beaches. This baby and pet friendly cottage is suitable for large families or groups of friends. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 en-suite), many living spaces and a secure south-facing garden with off-road parking for 3-4 cars. The cottage is well-equipped with facilities for young children, infants and for up to 3 dogs.

Many rooms in this 350-year old cottage have beamed ceilings, with other historic features including that large inglenook fireplace which now houses a very effective (easy to light) woodburner. The rooms are furnished to act as natural gathering points for everyone to eat or socialise together, having a lounge, dining room, kitchen diner and large games room, allowing guests to find their own spaces in which to relax and play.

The Kitchen: Barnfield is a house for great feasts - be that breakfast, banquets or BBQs. The pine kitchen table seats 8 (+highchair) and the dining room table can accommodate 10. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke units offering plenty of storage space. Cooking is done using an oil-fired stove. It's the easiest way to cook and means no worries about fiddling with dials, timers and switches! For the keen chef, there are some Aga cookbooks to hand.

The Lounge: It is also a house for relaxation after a day on the beach or a ramble across Exmoor. The ground floor offers a good-sized oak-beamed lounge with pine floor, sofas (one being a double sofa bed), armchairs, beanbag, woodburner and Smart TV. A second door gives access to stairs to the first floor. Kitchen appliances include a dishwasher, microwave, 4 slice toaster, coffee machine, cafetiere, electric kettle, fridge-freezer, wine rack, knife sharpener and all the necessary pots, pans, crockery, cutlery, utensils and knife sharpeners to keep every kind of chef happy when preparing meals.

The Dining Room is another room with exposed stone walls and flagstone floors, that was once the dairy. The oak pew, which seats 4, came from the old Methodist Church in the village.

The Utility Room has a separate wet room with shower, wc and washbasin. The utility room itself contains a washing machine and a tumble drier.

Ground Floor Bedroom; Leading off the utility room, this bedroom has zip-and-link beds allowing it to be used as a double or twin room. French Windows lead out onto the terrace, giving level access from the drive. Throw open the doors on a summer morning and let the sun flood in along with the fragrance of the Mock Orange that grows on the terrace. The bedroom has underfloor heating.

The Games Room: A large chill out room with far reaching rural views across the valley (and stunning sunsets). Once an old stable, it has been converted to create a large living space. It has its exterior entrance via a glass-fronted stable door from the drive. This high-ceiling room with original oak beams also has underfloor heating. As a games room, it is equipped with table football, X-Box 360, PlayStation 2, Wii, a piano and some traditional family board games.

Stairs to the first-floor lead from the lounge and give access to the other three bedrooms (one en-suite) plus a family bathroom.

Master Bedroom: The master bedroom with a king-size double bed, is a light and airy triple aspect room with lovely rural and village views. Wake up to the sound of bird song or lie in bed and watch the TV. This bedroom has an en suite bathroom with power shower, basin, heated towel rail and WC.

Bedroom 2: The second double bedroom is located at the other end of the cottage. Comprising a double bed with bedside tables/lights, a chest of drawers and built in wardrobe, it catches the morning sun quite nicely.

Bedroom 3 contains a set of adult-sized bunk beds. It too has a space for storing clothes, a bean bag, tiny table and chairs for the Under 5's and even a dolls house. There are window locks on the windows and a stair gate which can be attached at the top of the stairs to keep young children safe and secure.

The south-facing garden has a bbq terrace with outdoor dining table. The garden surrounds three sides of the house. It has two lawns, flower beds and two patio spaces.  High stone walls and shrubbery such as clematis and jasmine create a secure, private place in which to picnic, sunbathe and BBQ. The lane that runs down the side of the house is a Sustrans National Cycle Route also used by horse riders. For joggers it presents a challenging, but picturesque run to the bottom of the valley (the easy bit) and back, along a flower-filled country lane.
