1 of 3 barn conversions, located on a ten acre farm in North Devon, offering a fantastic glimpse at rural life, with the added extras of a shared hot tub, children’s play area, and the opportunity to participate in farm life.

This reverse level property is located in North Devon, just a short drive from the popular town of Bideford, with its range of good quality restaurants and pubs, interesting independent shops, and its working harbour, from where visitors may like to take an enjoyable pleasure boat cruise. One of the most popular trips is the delightful ride out to Lundy, a small wildlife rich island in Bideford Bay where visitors should be able to spot the resident seals and puffins, as well as explore the numerous historic landmarks and buildings. Other places of interest in the area include the traditional village of Clovelly, the large sandy beach at Westward Ho!, the Big Sheep and the Milky Way family adventure park.

This property is approached via the raised decked area, and a short flight of wooden stairs lead to the front door, which opens into the attractive, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. This spacious room, with its exposed beams, and brickwork, offers a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the views from the Juliet balcony, with comfortable sofa seating, a TV/DVD. To the opposite end of the room, there is a dining table which perfect for family meals, beyond which is the kitchen area, equipped with an electric oven and halogen hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, and a dishwasher. A washer/dryer is located separately in a cupboard under the stairs. The property’s two bedrooms are located on the ground floor, the first of which is a restful double room with its own TV. The second bedroom is a pretty twin room, with attractive exposed brick walls. The shower room with its power shower and WC is also located on the ground floor, conveniently next to the bedrooms.

Outside, the property has its own private enclosed decked area, with outdoor furniture and a BBQ. Guests are also welcome to explore the farm’s grounds, where they will find the free roaming ducks and are able to collect eggs from the resident chickens, and pay a visit to the pigs and sheep. The shared hot tub is located in its own barn, offering a wonderful place to lie back and relax, whatever the weather. Younger guests will enjoy the on site playground, where they will find a climbing frame and swings. Guests who wish to book more than one property, will also have access to the detached family room which offers a lounge with comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, wood burner and underfloor heating throughout, as well as small kitchen area. This makes a great space for larger gatherings. There is ample parking provided, as well as use of a secure garage which provides a space to store bikes, etc.

It would be helpful to have better guidance to the property when first going there. The cottage is fairly isolated and, after a long journey , or in the dark , with narrow roads you want to get there as easily as possible.

We have just had a week at Great Eckworthy and had a lovely time! Jane and Martin gave us a very warm welcome with a cream tea and it has been an amazing time! We timed it well hitting their last week of lambing and both my kids 11 and 12 really enjoyed it. My son was setting his alarm every morning to help with the feeding of the chickens,sheep anRead mored Lambs with Jane. Kept him off his tech which was just what we hoped for. A super cottage and a really relaxing chilled holiday. Hide
