A Peaceful Country Retreat.......
The Barn at Southcombe Farm is an amazing 2 bedroom luxury self catering cottage. It is really comfortable and has lovely country views. The barn sleeps 4 with plenty of space and comfort. Perfect for small families, friends or couples. The upper floor is open plan with a great country kitchen and dining area leading to a large lounge with two comfortable leather sofas, stereo, large flat screen TV, DVD, log burner and of course fantastic views out over the surrounding countryside. Downstairs are the cosy, but spacious bedrooms (1 King & Twin) with views out into the stable yard. The bathroom is lovely too, fully tiled, piping hot water and spotlessly clean, so a long bath is a pleasure! Although the barn is bright and airy, it is also warm complete with efficient under floor heating. Whenever you vi...

We arrived last Saturday around 5pm and my partner went to the main house to meet Paul. He showed us the way to the Barn conversion. We entered the Barn and it was absolutely beautiful.

We had a lovely, relaxing break in The Barn in the middle of the school summer holidays. The first thing we noticed when we arrived was the wonderful peace and quiet, something that we were really hoping for. The accommodation was great with everything we needed to prepare and serve meals, as well as put our feet up. The sofas...

About the neighbourhood
The Barn is situated at Southcombe Farm just to the southwest of the lovely Market Town of Holsworthy (less than 5 mins by car or about 30 mins walk).
The town has all of the traditional shops / pubs that you would expect, plus a Waitrose supermarket which also has a handy delivery service.
The Barn is detached and positioned adjacent to the farmyard. Your only neighbours are some distance away. Your hosts Paul and his family live in the Farmhouse and guests staying in the second holiday home the Homestead.
Southcombe is a sheep farm complete with nature trail. It takes about 45 mins to complete and you could see anything from a frog to a deer! For families with children we are happy for you to be involved with morning feeding.
