    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    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 Pillar Barn which is the largest cottage, and have recently purchased three of the other barns to rent out for holiday lets - see details of Kingfisher Barn and Woodpecker Barn below. All three cottages are adjacent and with the use of a large shared courtyard, they are perfect for several families or large groups staying together. Swallow Barn has been furnished and equipped to provide the highest quality self catering accommodation, and has been successfully rented out for the last ten years (under its former name of Stokeleigh). Many guests have returned year after year.

    All our cottages overlook our two acre field where we have numerous...

Having booked a last minute break with "odd" days to start and finish we couldn't be more satisfied. Judy was very accommodating with the booking. We loved the barn. It is so comfortable, homely and welcoming. Even more welcoming with the lovely touches like Devon cream tea for us both, fresh eggs from the girlies, homemade jam, flowers, bread, butter... more

We stayed as a family of three in Swallow Barn. We had friends in the neighbouring Woodpecker barn which was an ideal set up. Our cottage was neat and tidy and very well equipt. The highlight of the stay for my young son was feeding the chickens every morning. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome during our... more
