Ladybird Barn

Relax in Style

 

As you approach 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.
Pass your own private patio and seating area, partially shaded by giant Gunnera plants and go through the large double glazed oak doors into the lounge/diner where you will find a superb contemporary style converted barn furnished to a very high standard with oak floors throughout downstairs, and dressed with luxurious heavy curtains.

Ladybird Barn


An array of comfortable sofas, armchairs, beanbags, squashy cushions and a wonderful log burning fire, with a long silver flue that juts up and through the ceiling above. There’s a pine dining table that can comfortably sit 8 and a bookcase bulging with an assortment of local books, tourist information, boxes of jigsaws, games, and an assortment of family DVDs with flat screen TV.
Leading off the Lounge is a modern style kitchen with integrated fitted kitchen appliances and every modern convenience you could require.  The kitchen is fully equipped with cooking utensils, pots, pans, plenty of crockery, cutlery and glassware, kitchen roll, cling film, foil, bin bags, washing up essentials, tea towels, as well as fresh herbs, essential condiments, and all environmentally friendly cleaning products. The kitchen window views are stunning, looking out over beautiful views of grazing sheep in the distance.

On the ground floor there is also a smart shower room and wc. To the other side of the Lounge is a full width ground floor bed room, which has bunk beds and a comfy sofa bed.
Upstairs there are 2 Spacious bedrooms in the eaves of the barn. (A double and a twin bedroom).  The bedrooms both have skylights which on a clear night you can take advantage of Exmoor’s designation as Europe’s first “Dark Sky Reserve” where the stars shine brighter making star gazing very special indeed. 

Outside is a wood burning chiminea for outdoor heating, and a charcoal BBQ.
Ladybird Barn is centrally heated out of season but you may still wish to light the fire with an endless supply of free logs for the log burner (help yourself to logs) for a cosy night in. There is a larger communal private patio area and seating, and to the front of the farmhouse is a large lawn and seating area. 
To the side of the barn are a log store and a small herb garden.  We also have an organic allotment, where guests are welcome to ask Adrian to pick and select the best of the seasonal vegetables available.
We put a scrummy seasonal welcome pack in the barn for your arrival, normally a home cooked cake, tea, coffee and sugar, organic milk, some local Scrumpy Cider and seasonal vegetables pulled that morning from our vegetable garden.  Eggs are always available courtesy of the Hens in the Hen House.  Why not take advantage and have a supermarket deliver groceries in advance of your arrival and we will put them away in the kitchen or you.  We also have a number of Farm Shops close by, a village store and numerous Farmers Markets throughout the week.

Please Note:  Due to the sheep, we do not allow dogs on the farm.
