Hartland Holiday Barns are located in the perfect place to enjoy the peace of rural life but are just a short drive to stunning North Devon coastal villages such as Hartland and Clovelly, and slightly further to the broad sandy beaches in Bude, Cornwall. Being situated in one of North Devon’s finest rural and coastal areas, overlooking the meadows, these three barn conversions (refs UK12106, UK12107 and UK12108) are popular with those who enjoy walking holidays, want to relax and recharge their batteries, and those who wish to bring a four legged friend. With high vaulted ceilings and oak floors throughout, these impressive barns have been given contemporary interiors crafted from eco-friendly, and where possible, sustainable materials without compromising on comfort or modern facilities. Relax with your morning coffee on your courtyard seating area, or why not enjoy a barbecue in the shared area surrounded by a herb garden. Additional shared facilities include a large meadow, perfect for walking the dog or leisurely picnics. The owner’s private smallholding adjacent includes a large organic vegetable plot and greenhouse, chickens, geese, ducks, pigs, cats and a dog. They have instituted a rolling management of hedges to encourage all kinds of wildlife and have positioned owl, bat, bird and nature boxes.
