5 holiday lets sleeping from 4 to 8
Nestling in a peaceful and picturesque corner of rural West Devon, Woodhall Barns Holiday Cottages are barn conversions with light and contemporary interiors. Kingfishers cottage is in a courtyard setting close to the indoor heated swimming pool and games room. The cottage offers four star comfort and all the facilities you need, including an en suite bathroom, fully fitted kitchen, DAB radio and flat screen TV.
Kingfishers accommodates up to 5 guests in three pretty bedrooms: an en suite double; a twin (or zip & link to king size bed) and a single. Cots, highchairs and stairgates are provided free of charge for additional infants under the age of two. There is also a bathroom on the landing. Downstairs there is a delightful open plan lounge and dining area with a kitchen equipped with oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Outside the garden area has lovely cottage style planting and a picnic table for al fresco meals.
Guests have access to a heated indoor swimming pool and a large games room including pool, table football (pay to play) and table tennis. The games room is available for private functions when guests book multiple cottages for a special occasion (total capacity of the site is 33 adults plus infants).
The owners keep a small number of rare breed pigs, as well as chickens and ducks - a source of great delight and fascination to visiting children who are welcome to help out at feeding time. There is a dedicated children's play area with swings and slides, and a large communal BBQ for guests to use during the long warm evenings.
The site extends to almost 3 acres and provides direct access to footpaths and cycle routes including the Tarka Trail. Dartmoor, which can be seen from the site, is a 15 minute drive away accessible via the pretty market town of Okehampton (which has a Waitrose supermarket). The Burrow underground shop and post office is a mile away in charming Exbourne. The Red Lion pub there has an excellent reputation for real ale and good food. From a cosy base at Woodhall Barns you could also eat out at the Duke of York, Iddesleigh, visit the village hall made famous by 'War Horse' and explore Dartmoor.
Exeter is 35 minutes away by car, and Bude and many other exquisite North Cornwall beaches can be reached in under an hour.
8th June 2012: We really enjoyed our stay at Kingfishers - the cottage was very comfortable and just right for us. My daughter enjoyed using the pool, tidying the games room and using the outside play area. Overall the area was peaceful and quiet, and driving locally was a relaxing experience.
29th August 2011: It was one of those beautiful holidays we have when everything is perfect! Thank you Leoni for making our holiday an amazing one!
1st August 2011: So much thought has gone into the material things provided and the overall comfort. A few days here but not long enough. Mary age 15: I loved the red sofa in the games room - so comfortable and a great place to cuddle up and finish my book!
