The Threshing Barn is situated on Lower Hearson Farm which is a small family run farm set in fifteen acres of gardens, field and woodland. Whether you want to relax with a book in the gardens surrounding the cottages, watch a DVD, help us feed the animals or just unwind in our rural haven here in North Devon there is something for you at Lower Hearson Farm. Tucked away in the heart of the North Devon countryside in a secluded valley full of wildlife, Lower Hearson Farm is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Our six self catering holiday cottages are surrounded by two acres of gardens making this a safe place for children and a peaceful haven for adults.
Guests are very welcome to help us at feeding times for the animals, help to collect the eggs and round up the chickens when it is their bedtime.
Within the grounds we have an outdoor covered, heated swimming pool (open Easter to end September), a children's play area, sandpit, trampoline badminton net and a games room. Well behaved dogs are also welcome.
The Threshing Barn is converted from part of the farm's original threshing barn. It has a comfortable lounge/dining area with a solid oak floor and a large bay window which makes a feature of the original cart entrance. The lounge/dining area has a wood burning stove, 32? Flatscreen LCD Digital TV with Freeview, video, DVD player and mini Hi-Fi.
The fully-fitted kitchen includes an electric hob and oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer and a washer drying machine to keep up with your laundry while you are on holiday.
At the top of the stairs is the landing. Leading from the landing are the bathroom, airing cupboard and the bedrooms. The bathroom comprising bath, shower attachment, wc, wash basin, heated towel rail and electric fan heater is straight ahead. On the left is the airing cupboard door and the door to the double bedroom leading into the twin bedroom. A hair dryer is available for use during your holiday.
There is a folder in the cottage full of leaflets giving details of the vast number of sights, attractions and places to visit during your holiday here in North Devon. The cottage also has walking books containing various routes so that you can really explore and enjoy North Devon during your holiday.
The cottage is fully centrally heated with the cost of central heating included within the cottage rental. Between the months of September and May central heating is available in the cottage (for heating times see terms and conditions page).
