With holiday homes in North Devon often the site of barnstorming parties and mass gatherings, the Red Barn is that rare thing: a four-person holiday home. Bigger family? Rent the barn with Cob Farm and make merry with more.
Red Barn near Bude has families at its heart: it comes with cots, high chairs, handysitt, stairgates and even a steriliser, so you travel lighter. The shrimps and crabs of the North Devon coast are ready to cower from small fingers. There’s wifi, DVDs and armfuls of games should the clouds part.
At the final whistle, potter off through the sprawling acres to discover a fruit-festooned orchard and flower-filled meadows. This is a smallholding with big ideas. In the evenings, break up some logs for the woodburner and break out the brandy as you make plans for another family-friendly day on the Devon coast.
The Red Barn has its own large private deck overlooking a very large (football friendly) garden and tree-lined fields, set within a sprawling smallholding and sandwiched between nature reserves.
Kids can explore and find the secret house in the woods while picking up fresh eggs from our very friendly chickens.
The terrace faces east so it’s steeped in sunlight all morning. Stray beyond that and you’ll find a fruit-festooned orchard and flower-filled meadows.
The Red Barn has a sun flooded open plan lounge, kitchen, diner.
The kitchen is equipped with all mod cons. There’s a highchair to go with the four-seater dining table and two comfy sofas, flat screen TV with DVD player.
There is also an iPod dock, wifi, and a wide selection of DVD’s and games for parents and kids alike. And a wood burning stove with logs supplied from the farm’s own woodlands.
For special occasions, we can arrange all kinds of catering – from a simple buffet, to a summer BBQ or a fully catered holiday. Just let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll sort it out.
The Red Barn has two pretty downstairs bedrooms, sleeping up to four guests.
One twin bedroom and one double bedroom. Each of the bedrooms have Egyptian cotton bedding and lots of storage. They share a large bathroom with a bath, shower and complimentary organic REN toiletries.
The Red Barn is perfect for relaxing lie ins and energetic early risers.
We know what families need on a holiday. So that you can travel a little lighter, and relax a lot more, we have child friendly facilities available including; two cots, high chairs and toddler handysitt, stairgates for safety and a bottle sterilizer.
And to keep the kids entertained Red Barn is bursting with toys and hidden secrets for the youngsters to explore. From the tree house in the woods and football goals in the garden to the toys and DVD’s in the house. And of course the hunt for chicken eggs each morning before breakfast!
