Cosy barn conversion in beautiful rural location in the heart of the South Hams, Devon. Very well equipped self catering accommodation. Perfect for family holidays or couples and available throughout the year.

The space

Our cottage is a superb stone converted barn in the picturesque 200 year old farmstead of Higher Hendham Barns which has eight cottages. We live in one and have three of the other barns to rent out for holiday lets - search also for Swallow Barn and Woodpecker Barn. All three cottages are adjacent and are perfect for several families or large groups staying together. Kingfisher Barn has been furnished and equipped to provide the highest quality self catering accommodation, and has been successfully rented out for the last twelve years. Many guests have returned year after year.

All our cottages overlook our two acre field where we have numerous chickens, three alpacas, and a large vegetable garden.

The cottage is reverse level with a stunning open plan living area on the first floor with a lounge area with two sofas, dining table for four and a modern kitchen with a full range of appliances - dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, halogen hob and electric fan oven, microwave and fridge. It has oak flooring throughout the living area which is very practical and perfect for those holidaying with a dog or for families. There is also a floor to ceiling window with a very comfortable armchair and views out over the field.

The cottage is beautifully light and airy with a high vaulted ceiling and white painted beams. It is stunningly lit with multiple spotlights and table lamps. It is very cosy in the winter with an electric log effect stove and is also fantastic in the summer with double doors opening out onto a small lawned private garden. It has a small patio with table, chairs, umbrella and a built in BBQ for 'al fresco' dining. From a door downstairs is access onto the shared courtyard with additional seating.

The main bedroom has a comfortable kingsize bed and the second large bedroom has twin single beds. We can provide a travel cot and high chair and there is a fixed stair gate for those with young children. Both bedrooms have good quality duvets, bed linen and towels, a wardrobe and drawers for clothes. The family bathroom has a combined bath and shower

We stayed at Kingfisher Barn for a week and had a magical stay. It was our first family holiday with our 1 year old daughter and we couldn't have asked for more welcoming hosts. On arrival to the cottage there were fresh flowers and home made scones. We were lucky enough to have great weather and Judy and Mike recommended some beautiful scenic walks and beaches to visit. The cottage is extremely well equipped and very comfortable. In addition there were board games and dvds for a rainy day and a BBQ for hot weather. As well as having a private little garden there was a playground for our daughter and alpacas and chickens to capture her interest. All in all we had a fantastic stay and we would highly recommend it to others.
