Hayloft is one of a three barn conversions set within a large courtyard.  This cosy and quirky building has been renovated by the current owners, whilst sympathetically retaining some original features, including beamed ceilings, exposed stone wall and latched doors.  Although sleeping 4, the property accommodates a maximum of 2 adults.

Please mind your head as you step into the cottage through the front door. The ground floor is open plan with sitting area, dining table and kitchen.  There is a comfy sofa plus two single chairs, smart TV, elec wood burner effect fire for cooler evenings, soft up-lighting and small selection of books. Please take care as part of this property’s quirky character includes one or two low beams. This is a very sociable space as no-one will be excluded from conversation even during food preparation.  The dining table is well placed and no doubt excited children will enjoy chatting about the days activities during the family meal.  A compact kitchen area has adequate work space to produce quick snacks or hearty meals to refuel hungry tummies. A latch door opens to the carpeted staircase with handrail, leading to the first floor.  There is also an additional one way door leading from the property, which is a fire exit only.  Bedroom 1 is a good size double with chest of drawers, bedside tables, hanging clothes rail, armchair and views over the courtyard to fields beyond.  Bedroom 2 is a children’s bunk bedded room (5"9 length) with original beams, storage unit, selection of children’s books and views over the courtyard and countryside.  A shared family shower room with shower, WC, basin and heated towel rail completes the upstairs facilities. Outside there is a bistro table and chairs to enjoy a cup of coffee  whilst watching the children play.

This is a wonderful location where children are welcome to help feed the animals in the morning with the owner, including goats, kune kune pigs, ducks, Shetland ponies and chickens and collect fresh, free range eggs.  A great communal games room in an opposite barn provides fun for children of all ages, scooters, table tennis, pool table, board games and a vast selection of toys is available - a wonderful place to socialise and meet new friends. Within the vast grounds there are sunken trampolines, swings, climbing frames, fire pit and a stream for paddling in and a large pond. Please note all play equipment is used at your own risk. Also a public footpath nearby is great for exercising dogs. If you can tear yourself away from this lovely environment, the wonderful Marwood Hill Gardens and tea rooms are just a short drive away or you can walk up an appetite and set off across the fields for a hearty half hour walk to the Crown Inn at West Down for a delicious home cooked meal. The pretty Victorian seaside town of Ilfracombe is also just a scenic drive away.
