Very Good

“Peaceful stay in Country”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2017

Woodpecker Barn is located on a small development surrounded by beautiful peaceful countryside. The children's play area is next to the chickens and alpacas. A car is needed but the cottage is well placed to visit the area between Dartmouth, Bovey Tracey and Salcombe. The owner's are on site but not next to the property. We appreciated the welcome scones (plus milk and butter as we forgot to buy!). They were very helpful loaning wellington boots and buckets and spades! The cottage was well equipped if a little dated. We soon felt at home! Happy to visit again.

“Something for everyone”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2014

Woodpecker Barn was our base for a hugely enjoyable week for all of us, a shifting mixed bag of grandmother, parents, and two teenaged boys. While the rest of Britain was rained upon we enjoyed our little pocket of bright and sunny weather. There is such a wealth and variety of places to walk nearby: our trips included a trip to the Blackdown Rings, in Loddiswell, to Slapton Sands, a fine breezy walk complete with dog at Bigbury Bay, and the cliff and gardens of the magnificent D’Oyly Carte family holiday home at Coleton Fishacre. On Bantham beach, the boys donned bathers and bravely – or is that foolishly? - eschewed wetsuits to do some body-boarding on a sunny windy day. Endearingly, the sophisticated London teens melted into blissful childhood faced with the chickens who needed feeding and occasionally shepherding back into their fenced area, the faces of the camel-like Alpacas, and the adoring company of Jess the black Labrador. More manfully, we piled into the car and did an hour’s driving practice and a quick nine holes on the short course of the magnificent Dartmouth Golf Club, from where we could see the town and harbour below us, and out to sea. The ‘quick’ nine holes was not because we made par, or anything approaching it, but we were charmed by the informality of the place and the eccentric ninth hole (try it and you’ll see what I mean). Those who are better golfers should try the magnificent championship course. Meanwhile my wife sampled the delights of Dartmouth. My walking shoes had fallen to pieces, so a trip to nearby Kingsbridge solved that problem (everything is a lot cheaper there than in posh but delightful Salcombe). Thus equipped I explored the hills, rivers and valleys immediately around Higher Hendham barns, eventually joined by my wife – who had hitherto ploughed her own furrow - on the last day so she could share my delight at the walk over Topsham Bridge, and its delightfully zany bridge house complete with peacocks on the roof, and lazy young trout in the river below. It was hard to resist the blackberries which hung temptingly in every hedge or bank along the way. Fresh eggs, including ones with gorgeous blue shells, were produced by owners Mike and Judy and so English breakfasts were compulsory, with bacon and sausages supplied by Aune Valley butchers just down the road. Our final day was spent in Salcombe, in the warm sun, knowing that we had to return to London the following day. We deliberately got sunburnt to prove we had been in Devon, and failed to be tempted by all those famous branded clothes for which the place is famous. What a shame we had to leave.

“Idyllic setting, beautiful barn and wonderfully run”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2014

Even 9 days wasn't enough to do all the amazing things the area has to offer - endless day trip possibilities and a great garden to keep the whole family content when staying in. The kids loved all the animals and being able to play in the playground, giving us time to chill out and relax too. Judy and Mike are so welcoming and accommodating, fresh eggs and scones really was lovely. A great family get-away, beautiful scenery and lovely people - I only wish we'd gone for longer!

“Lovely barn conversion in South Devon”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2014

What a wonderful , peaceful place to spend a weekend. Woodpecker Barn is beautifully fitted out and has everything you might need - but if you find you need more Jude and Mike, the owners, are nearby to help. Higher Hendham barns are set in an area of woods and rolling hills but with easy access to Kingsbridge for shopping, eating out etc. and to lovely beaches at Bantham. If you 're looking for a quiet, relaxing spot this is the place to stay.

“The perfect week,a quilting retreat enjoyed by six friends.”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2014

We were welcomed by Judy and Mike Lovick who looked after us extremely well and the barn was beautifully warm. A basket of goodies was waiting for us which included eggs from their own hens. The kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed .Being open plan we had plenty of space for dining and lounging in the evening. The bedrooms downstairs are beautifully furnished and most importantly the beds extremely comfortable, with all the linen provided. Immaculate bathroom with complimentary toiletries. Lovely fluffy towels. The location is fantastic close to Kingsbridge but really in the country with lots of space and pretty gardens. We rented Kingfisher and Woodpecker and used Kingfisher for our sewing project with extra tables provided by the Lovicks and we used Woodpecker for eating and relaxing. It was a great week and we would highly recommend for similar groups but would be wonderful for families as well
