Holiday Cottage: 7486 Devon

Cottage's own web site
Woodhayes Farm dates back to the 14th century. The farm is located in the parish of Luppitt on the edge of the Black Down Hills just below Dumpdon Hill, an Iron Age hill fort and is also located close to the Jurassic Coast (including the fossil hunters paradise of Lyme Regis).

Orchard barn was converted in late 2009. The accommodation was formerly used as a farm labourers cottage.

The barn consists of four bedrooms sleeping a total of 8 people.
There is also an additional sofa bed in the sitting room for 1-2 more overnight guest(s).

The cottage has been sympathetically converted using local materials. There is one bathroom with a bath and shower and one bathroom with shower.

The newly converted barn has been converted to all the latest building regulation standards, offering:

Under floor heating using a ground source heat pump. There is a contemporary kitchen and dining room. The living area is stylishly furnished and features a wood burning stove, television, DVD player and Internet connection.

Opposite the barn is a pretty apple orchard garden, which can be used at your leisure and includes BBQ facilities and garden furniture, with stunning views across the valley and up to Dumpdon Hill fort.

Woodhayes has for the last 50 years been a dairy and livestock farm, specializing in the rearing of beef and lamb. It was originally a producer of apples and cider and there are new plans to re-introduce Devon apple orchards to the fields in which these orchards once prospered.

South Devon and Dorset are on the doorstep as is Honiton, the antique capital of the South West with its bi-annual arts and music festival and the worlds premier collection of Honiton lace.

Enjoy the facilities of Orchard barn, the newly converted barn will comfortably sleep 8 with room for 2 more. There is a large orchard garden, where you can relax or have a BBQ.

The farm adjoins Dumpdon Hill Fort, which is a National Trust Iron Age fort; there is an excellent walk from the Orchard barn through the farm to Dumpdon. The Page-Turner family live close by and will be delighted to help you enjoy your stay here, by helping you get the most out of the farm and the local area.

Families, cyclists and walkers are welcome, dogs are welcome too.

We can offer boxes of assorted vegetables, which are grown locally, as well as local dairy products, for which there will be a charge.

On arrival you will find our welcome pack, which contains lots of useful information on Orchard barn and Woodhayes Farm and activities and places of interest in the surrounding areas, together with advice on security and safety issues.
Please ensure you read through this at your earliest convenience.
