Although the barn is bright and airy, it is also warm complete with efficient under floor heating. Whenever you visit, whatever the weather, you will be very comfortable. Remember, heating, bed linen, towels and robes are all included. We are in a great spot with lots to do all around, great countryside, fantastic beaches, fishing, horse riding, walking, surfing, canoeing, country houses, gardens and fresh air! Not to forget our lovely animals who will be your holiday neighbours! Please note the Barn is only open during the summer holidays.More

About the neighborhood
The Barn is situated at Southcombe Farm just to the southwest of the lovely Market Town of Holsworthy (less than 5 mins by car or about 30 mins walk). The town has all of the traditional shops / pubs that you would expect, plus a Waitrose supermarket which also has a handy delivery service. The Barn is detached and positioned adjacent to the farmyard. Your only neighbours are some distance away. Your hosts Paul and his family live in the Farmhouse and guests staying in the second holiday home the Homestead. Southcombe is a sheep farm complete with nature trail. It takes about 45 mins to complete and you could see anything from a frog to a deer! For families with children we are happy for you to be involved with morning feeding.
How to get there
It is best to visit us with a car due to our rural location or minimum of a bicycle. Public Transport:- Fly or catch train or coach to Exeter. Bus from Exeter to Holsworthy. Taxi or lift from Holsworthy to Farm.
