Go through the large double glazed oak doors into the lounge/diner and you’ll find a superb contemporary converted barn, furnished to very high standard with oak floors throughout downstairs, and dressed with luxurious heavy curtains. An array of comfortable sofas, squashy cushions and a truly wonderful log burning fire, with a silver flue that juts up and through the ceiling above. There’s a pine dining table that can comfortably sit six and bookcase bulging with an assortment of local books, boxes of jigsaws, games, and an assortment of family DVDs with flat screen TV.

Windows Views Description
As you approach the side of Ladybird Barn you cannot fail to notice the ancient old Devon walls bursting with ancient ferns, crocosmia and foxgloves and in their shadow, are clumps of yellow flowered wild Iris. As you look further up the hill, you’ll see dozens of Devon Longhair sheep staring at you and welcoming you to your holiday home. To the side of the cottage is a log store and a small herb garden. We also have an organic allotment, where guests are welcome to ask Adrian to pick them the best seasonal fruits and vegetables available.
We have 7 Gorgeously friendly cats, and they do not need an invitation to come and visit with you, sit on a lap, or share your evening snacks. They are everywhere, so please be mindful when driving in our yard.
