Just spent a blissful week at The Barn. Idyllic setting, nestled away in the North Devon countryside but still close to several seaside resorts. The cottage was spacious and perfect for our group, with all the amenities you could wish for. The owners Richard and Alli were super friendly and quick to respond to any requests. Couldn't have been happier with our choice and would definitely return.
Originally two cottages, The Barn at Wheel Farm has been recently converted and renovated to offer spacious high- quality accommodation for large groups, perhaps holidaying with the whole extended family or a group of friends.
Finished to a very high standard, The Barn comfortably accommodates between 12 in six bedrooms. The ground floor boasts a stylish open plan kitchen/dining room that comes complete with two electric ovens, an induction hob, large fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and all you could need for a self-catering holiday. For dining, a large table easily seats up to 14 people, perfect for gathering everyone together at meal times. A bright spacious living room enjoys plenty of comfy sofas and a large flat screen TV with Freeview and a DVD player. From the lounge, guests can gain access to a garden area, this has been fenced off but children and dogs will need to be supervised. Downstairs, there is also a shower room, with a large walk-in shower, WC and wash basin.
The six bedrooms are all located on the first floor of The Barn and are accessed via two staircases. The first three bedrooms, which include a good-sized double bedroom, spacious twin and bunk room serviced by a family bathroom can be accessed via the staircase in the kitchen/diner.
