Hartland Holiday Barns are located in the perfect place to enjoy the peace of rural life but are just a short drive to stunning North Devon coastal villages such as Hartland and Clovelly, and slightly further to the broad sandy beaches in Bude, Cornwall. Being situated in one of North Devon’s finest rural and coastal areas, overlooking the meadows, these three barn conversions (refs UK12106, UK12107 and UK12108) are popular with those who enjoy walking holidays, want to relax and recharge their batteries, and those who wish to bring a four legged friend. With high vaulted ceilings and oak floors throughout, these impressive barns have been given contemporary interiors crafted from eco-friendly, and where possible, sustainable materials without compromising on comfort or modern facilities. Relax with your morning coffee on your courtyard seating area, or why not enjoy a barbecue in the shared area surrounded by a herb garden. Additional shared facilities include a large meadow, perfect for walking the dog or leisurely picnics.

The owner’s private smallholding adjacent includes a large organic vegetable plot and greenhouse, chickens, geese, ducks, cats and a dog. They have instituted a rolling management of hedges to encourage all kinds of wildlife and have positioned owl, bat, bird and nature boxes. They have also created covered shelters and small ponds for amphibians around the shared meadow. Guests are encouraged to use the owl observatory to enjoy the local wildlife and take advantage of the sunsets and dark skies to star gaze on clear evenings.

There are many lovely coastal villages to explore including nearby Bucks Mills, Peppercombe, Clovelly, with its donkey transport, and Hartland. Just a short drive from the secluded, dog friendly, sand and shingle beach in the tiny clifftop hamlet of Bucks Mills, one of the most beautiful villages in North Devon, a secluded hidden gem with pretty white washed cottages speckled along a wooded valley at the end of a no through road. Storage for cycles, surfboards and kayaks, and access to an outdoor water supply and a drying area, are provided at the properties to help those looking for more active holiday pursuits.

The pretty village of Woolfardisworthy (Woolsery) is just 2 miles away and has a well stocked village store and post office for your daily essentials. There is also a popular village inn and adjacent fish and chip shop which serves delicious home cooked food, perfect for an evening out or an evening in with fish and chips. The beach at Westward Ho! is just 13 miles away and is renowned for its beauty. It has 2 miles of sandy beach known as the Golden Bay and is popular with surfers. Nearby Bideford has restaurants and town amenities, along with boat trips to Lundy Island, or hire a bike and explore the Tarka Trail. RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are well worth a visit, along with many pretty fishing villages to explore including nearby Instow and Appledore. Beach 2½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 6 guests.

We had a very enjoyable two weeks in Threshing. The cottage is very comfortable, spacious for two, well equipped, stylish and spotlessly clean. Getting there does necessitate navigating a few miles of narrow, winding country lanes but to be fair you rarely come across another car, it’s so quiet. Once back to the A39 there is fast, easy access to some lovely coastal places in North Devon and Cornwall. The owners live on site and obviously take great pride in the place. They could not have been nicer or more helpful.

The floor heating kept us gently warm with no draft coming through. It was well designed and was a well built accommodation. Herbs in the garden were useful. Freshly laid eggs were most appreciated.
