The Roundhouse is perfect for couples, couples with a young child in a cot or can be used as an annex to The Threshing Barn or other cottages for extended families on holiday. All the self catering accommodation is on the ground floor.
This cottage is called the Roundhouse because it used to house the turntable that the horses powered to drive the machinery in the adjacent barns. It is not actually round in shape but this is the colloquial name for this building in North Devon.
Stepping out of the cottage straight into the gardens it is lovely to enjoy breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea sitting at the picnic tables which have been dotted around for your pleasure, one of which is situated directly opposite this cottage. Take yourself (and your doggie companion, if you have one) down the adjacent bridleway into the wooded valley. From the valley it is possible to follow public footpaths to explore the countryside. For the more energetic there are circular walks to enjoy.
You enter the fully centrally heated cottage into the comfortable sitting room with oak flooring which has a wood burning stove, 32″ Flatscreen digital LCD TV with Freeview, DVD player & mini Hi-Fi.
