We had a wonderful stay at the old barn. The property is really lovely, full of character, beautifully appointed and the location is just perfect. It's clear this lovely property is maintained to a high standard; the photos don't do it justice. I can't say enough nice things about the place. The 8 of us (2 grandparents, 2 children and their partners and 2 teenage grand-children) were comfortably accommodated.
Unlike some other properties that purport to accommodate 8, there's bags of room around the whopping eight-seater dining table for meals and family games as well as plenty of comfy seating in the lounge area, where 8 can watch a movie together, plus more casual seating in the orangery which is a nice, light and airy space for reading, knitting or 'chillaxing'.
We were slightly worried there wouldn't be enough bathrooms for 8. Upstairs, there is only one family wc as the other is in the en-suite. However, there is also a wc downstairs, and a separate shower room upstairs, so no one was ever queueing!
My only gripe, (just a tiny one), was that we couldn’t let our little dog off the leash in the garden, because she would have been able to get through the driveway gates. David did suggest I bring some mesh, but we had no room left in the car.
We had a lovely time here and even had a fun game of boules on the front lawn. As if the property alone wasn't enough, the location is superb. It's a short walk to the loveliest beach, or the White Horse pub.
There is also a lovely little park area, half way down Peddars Way, which, we were informed by the locals, was purchased jointly by residents to ensure its future as a ‘green space’ and prevent development.
As others have mentioned, at the farm shop just down the road, there's also a place to buy fresh fish as well as Eric's Fish & Chip greasy-spoon-cafe-style restaurant.
We loved every minute of our stay. Thank you, David and family, for sharing your lovely property.
Enjoyed a great week here, at the start of September, as autumn blew in, with warm days and cold nights. The cottage was just right: a small garden to sit out in when the sun shone, but warm and cosy at night when the temperature outside dropped. Well equipped with everything needed for self-catering including a kitchen radio and hooks on bedroom and bathroom doors. Small things, but so often missing! Melissa's delicious scones on arrival were much appreciated.
