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
House Rules
Pets Allowed: No
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
As the Barn is situated on a working sheep farm we ask that shoes are removed when inside. The Barn is in a quiet rural area. We would like to keep it that way so ask there is no loud music or parties. Extra guests other than those on the original booking are not permitted. Please leave the Barn as you find it.

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 grassland 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.
