Overview

About the property

4 bedroom house, sleeping 8, with garden and games room

High Barn is an outstanding barn conversion using large beams from 18th century ships. A second barn is used as a large games room with table tennis.

Situated in a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in South Devon, it is just one mile from the spectacularly beautiful and unspoilt Erme estuary. Wonwell beach on the estuary offers vast expanses of sand and is perfect for swimming, paddling and fishing nets at low tide and windsurfing at high tide. Nearby there are more beaches and coves as well as fine cliff top walks. The National Trust path runs along the coast line and crosses the estuary, a Site of Special Scientific Interest with fascinating birdlife. High Barn sleeps up to 8 adults/children and is privately owned. During the summer it is let on a weekly basis, Friday to Friday. In winter, it is available either for a full week, or for a weekend.

Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend staying at High Barn it had everything we needed for a family of 8 and a dog from 2 years up to 80 years, loved the garden, there was plenty of space to accommodate us all. The games room kept the grandchildren busy with the ping pong, and their own space. The adults relaxed in the lounge and garden, the neighbour was very nice and friendly and the locals when you met them walking about. A good standard and would recommend High Barn for family holiday.

warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

High Barn is a beautifully converted stone barn, comfortably appointed and with all the right traditional country atmosphere. The play barn is a very useful annex, and whilst the property has no view, the immediate location is pleasant, with lovely and peaceful surroundings. The nearby beach and villages are absolutely stunning. Fantastic autumn break.

Great location, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We wish we had discovered High Barn years ago as we know the area well and this is a lovely place to stay. Spacious and comfortable, everything you need provided and lovely and warm with the Aga on. We were very fortunate with the weather and had warm autumn sunshine every day so could take advantage of the 'sun trap' garden. The play barn with table tennis is a good bonus particularly if the weather is bad. Tim and Sally answered e-mails quickly and made sure everything was OK for us. Some lovely walks around the Erme Estuary when the tide is out. Would thoroughly recommend High Barn.

Perfekt für einen traumhaften Familienurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind eine Familie mit 3 Kindern und einem Hund. Wir waren für eine Woche in High Barn und konnten wunderbar relaxen, die wunderschöne Landschaft geniessen, lange Wanderungen an der Küste, am Strand und auch im Dartmoor unternehmen. Es gibt auch viele National Trust Schätze und sehenswerte landsitze und Gärten in der Gegend, die sehr sehenswert sind. Die Abwicklung mit den Eigentümern war super unkompliziert und einfach. Wir genossen die Ruhe, die freundliche Atmosphäre der Gegend und das gute Essen im Dolphin Pub um die Ecke.

Wir nutzten die Tischtennisplatte jeden Tag und die Kinder hatten wunderbar Platz zu spielen. Auch für unseren Dalmatiner war es der perfekte Urlaub. Es war alles sauber und schön hergerichtet. Danke!!!

High Barn holiday

  • 5 of 5

High Barn is perfectly situated near several places of interest, beautiful beaches and picturesque villages.

The barn itself is well equipped for young families (we were two families with four children below the age of 3), spacious, clean and comfortable. On a sunny day the garden is a lovely place to rest, catching the sun throughout the day, and the table tennis table is a welcome addition on those not-so-good days.

The owners, Tim and Sally Begg, were extremely helpful. In addition to a folder of recommendations of local restaurants and attractions, they emailed unprompted to recommend a local walk to find the bluebells.

All in all a great place to stay and we hope to return again soon.

High Barn holiday

  • 5 of 5

High Barn is perfectly situated. It is near many places of interest, such as Agatha Christie's holiday home 'Greenway', beautiful beaches, and picturesque villages.

High Barn is well equipped for young families (we had four children with us below the age of 3), comfortable, and spacious. On a fine day the garden is a great place to relax, catching the sun through the day. If the weather is not so good the barn is well stocked for indoor activities.

The owners, Tim and Sally Begg, are extremely helpful, even to the point of emailing to suggest a local walk to find the bluebells.

All in all, a great place to stay. We are definitely hoping to visit again soon.
