About the home
Little Barn sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. This cottage is converted from the old hay barn which was also used for Village dances, so has a real history.
Little Barn is arranged in an upside-down style with the living space on the first floor and the bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs – this enables you to have great views over countryside and the tennis court (all the views of Wimbledon without the crowds)!
The main bedroom has a king size bed and has a feature window which is very prettily draped. Next door is a spacious bedroom with twin beds which can be put together to form a super king size bed if you wish, this room also has an ensuite shower. There is room in here for a cot. The family bathroom is warm and cosy and has a corner bath with shower over.
Upstairs the living room is airy and bright with exposed beams and rafters. It has an electric wood burning stove, a wall mounted flat screen TV with Freeview and a DVD player. There is also a DAB radio CD player with iPod connection. Little Barn has a cosy eating area with views into the courtyard through its stone windows. The kitchen area is fully equipped with all that you should need including an oven and grill, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.
Above the living room is a mezzanine twin bedroom which is screened with curtains for privacy – not much use for sound insulation but very popular with children as it makes a great den and also doubles up as a stage for shows!
There is an outside staircase directly into the courtyard which is useful for access.
Little Barn can be linked with The Granary to provide accommodation for 12 people – very useful for large families or groups of friends.

The West Country / Cornwall region
We are only 10 minutes drive from the sweeping Atlantic coastline with its lovely sandy beaches yet in the middle of the rolling Devon countryside, well away from the crowds. Located on the National Cycle network Route No 3, it couldn’t be easier to hop on your bike and go!
The Bude / Bridgerule area
Glebe House Cottages are situated at the top of the hill overlooking the village of Bridgerule. The village is a small working rural village with a Post Office and stores, a pub, The Bridge Inn, which offers a Quiz Night every Sunday. There is a 12th century Church, St Bridgets which is certainly worth a visit. Part of the historic Bude canal can also be accessed from the village.

New and improved roads have considerably reduced the travelling time to the West Country. The fastest route is via the M5 to Exeter, then the A30 (signposted Okehampton) until the junction with the A3079 to Holsworthy, which joins the A3072 after Halwill Junction.
If travelling on the A3072 from Holsworthy towards Bude, take the first turning on the left after the golf course. This turning is signposted 'Bridgerule three miles'. Continue on this road to a T-junction in the village, turn left and Glebe House is on the right at the crest of the hill.
If travelling down the A39 towards Bude from the direction of Bideford, turn left in Stratton on to the A3072 signposted to Holsworthy. At The Red Post Restaurant turn right on to the B3254 towards Launceston. After one and a half miles turn left signposted Bridgerule. Turn left at T-junction and pass straight through the village. Glebe House is on the right at the crest of the hill.
