Barnfield is a lovely and luxurious Devon 17th Century Longhouse that has been beautifully restored to provide a stylish, warm and comfortable holiday cottage for 8-10 guests for long holidays or short breaks on the fringes of Exmoor in North Devon.

This south-facing cottage contains four bedrooms including a ground floor room with zip and link beds and an en suite wetroom with WC. On the ground floor there are a number of living rooms including a lounge with a large inglenook fireplace with warming woodburner, smart TV and DVD. One of the sofas converts to a double sofa-bed.  The spacious and well-equipped kitchen diner has a pine table for 8. A separate dining room with original flagstone floor and another pine table for 10 leads off the kitchen.

A step down from the kitchen leads to a terracotta floor-tiled utility room. This has a separate wet room with power shower, basin, WC and heated towel rail.  A second door off the utility room leads to the ground floor bedroom with zip and link beds and French windows offering level access to the BBQ terrace. Finally, another door leads into the games room, a large converted stable with original oak beamed ceiling and plenty of space for chilling out, having an X-box, piano, table football and lovely comfortable sofas. The ground floor bedroom and games room both have underfloor heating. Wi-Fi reaches most rooms in the house.

Upstairs are 3 bedrooms; a spacious master bedroom with king-size bed and delightful rural views, complete with an en suite with power shower, basin and heated towel rail. The other two bedrooms comprise a double bedroom and a twin room with full-sized bunk beds. A newly refurbished family bathroom with bath (with shower, WC, basin and heated towel rail) is also on the first floor.

There are two patios, one with BBQ and table/chairs seating 8-10 guests, and a large drive with parking space for 3 (4 at a squeeze) cars.

The house is particularly child and pet friendly with facilities for both. For infants, in addition to a travel cot and high chair, there are plug protectors, a stairgate, fireguard, a changing mat, baby monitor, night-light, child cutlery and crockery.

Barnfield Holiday Cottage  - Bratton Fleming,

Barnfield is located on the edge of the village and has some lovely walks from the front door along a quiet country lane (also a Sustrans Cycle Route), and along bridle paths through fields and woods. It is about a 4 minutes walk to the village shop and the Village Green with its play area and community woodland. A ten-minute drive down the valley takes you into Barnstaple, a bustling historic market town with plenty of shops and restaurants.

North Devon's superb sandy and surfing beaches, including Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Croyde are also within easy reach, the nearest beach being Combe Martin, which has fabulous rock pooling. There are easily enough beaches and little coves to spend every day on a different beach in a fortnight's holiday. Exmoor starts at the top of the village and offers superb moorland walks (many starting and finishing from pub car parks).

There are plenty of children’s attractions to keep little ones (and no so little ones) happy including the Exmoor Zoo, The Big Sheep and The Milky Way. Walkers and cyclists will also enjoy following the Tarka Trail, a long distance path along an old railway line that runs along the Taw and Torridge estuaries for about 40-miles (bike hire available).

30% deposit with balance and refundable security deposit of 300 payable 8 weeks prior to arrival. Pets welcome at 25 per animal per booking (payable with balance)
