  • Spacious converted barn with plenty of space to relax
  • Enjoy the peaceful rural countryside
  • Discover the beaches, golf courses and cliff top paths of North Devon
Property code: DOCOM

This converted barn is one of three properties located on a 500 acre farm. Guests can enjoy the peaceful seclusion of their cottage, or visit numerous local attractions.

Enjoying a peaceful countryside location, this impressive five-bedroom barn conversion is the ideal destination for families and friends seeking a rural retreat with its spacious interior, shared outdoor play areas and extensive views across the North Devon landscape. Set on a 500-acre farm, there are wonderful walks straight from the doorstep to lift the spirits and make you feel at one with nature. The rugged rock pools and shingle beach of Hartland Quay (4 miles) are within easy reach where you can also join the South West Coast Path for a bracing hike along the clifftop. Hartland village itself offers a choice of independent stores and craft shops, welcoming pubs serving local food and ale, and a takeaway for nights off from self-catering.

Retaining many of its original features, your lovely holiday home is one of three properties in this exclusive countryside complex offering luxurious escapes from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. Reached via quiet country lanes, leave your stresses and strains behind as you take in the rolling fields and open skies that surround you as you approach your cottage. With a warm and welcoming feel, exposed beams and brickwork, sink into one of the plump sofas in the living room and unwind in front of the crackling flames of the wood burner. Rustle up delicious dinners in the spacious kitchen/diner where you can enjoy hearty meals around the large farmhouse-style table. At the end of a long day of outdoor adventures, snuggle up in one of the five well-appointed bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities. Venturing outside, dine alfresco in your private garden taking in the views across the North Devon countryside, or light the BBQ for a sociable evening meal. Younger guests will enjoy the enclosed play area with trampoline, and players of all ages can let off steam on the shared football lawn. There is ample parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Pull on your wetsuits for a group surf lesson at nearby Bude (14 miles) where you can ride the waves and swim in the tidal pool. Hire rowboats for a scenic trip along the tranquil canals and enjoy a treat in one of the welcoming tearooms. Test your nerves at The Milky Way Adventure Park (6.5 miles) with its rollercoasters and thrill rides.

Excellent spacious property ideal for family get togethers. A little isolated down narrow lanes but gives access to the wonderful north Devon coast.

We have returned from a lovely Easter break at the Doctor old mill house. We had a lovely time. The house was exactly what we wanted, spacious, children friendly, plenty of outdoor and indoor space, great bedroom sizes and a few bathroom for the three families. Would def recommend to friends and family. The childrens play area is perfect!

The cottage was perfect for our group of two families with 5 children between us. The huge kitchen (where we could easily all sit down for a meal) and the en suite bathrooms in the main bedrooms were a huge plus. The children enjoyed the play area right next to the cottages and also enjoyed a short walk around the farm saying hello to the sheep on Read morethe way. Tons to do within a half an hours drive. Would definitely return here. Hide

A lovely, spacious cottage which was clean and homely. A super welcome package awaited us with some nice treats. The WiFi was very limited (so should not be relied on) and the heating wasnt working in one bedroom, but the cottage as a whole was warm using the heating. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment etc and the location was lovely - in Read morethe middle of nowhere but within easy driving distance of shops and the beach. Hide

A well appointed cottage perfect for a quiet break. We spent our time on a wet November weekend and found that although spacious and comfortable inside, its location wasnt close to any local shops or pubs so a car is essential.

Reviewed by Angela, 27th October 2018

The property is very spacious, plenty of room in the all bedrooms and plenty of storage space. The kitchen is well equipt and perfect dining table for a feast. The little night light on the upstairs floor is perfect for trips to the loo when it's pitch black. A couple of small negatives, the wood floor upstairs and in bedroom is very slippy and theRead more occasional smell of silage. Wine, beer and flowers on arrival was a lovely touch. Overall the property is great for a family retreat. Hide
