Woodpecker Barn is a superb stone converted barn in the picturesque 200 year old farmstead of Higher Hendham Barns, Woodleigh, South Devon, which has been furnished and equipped to provide the highest quality self catering accommodation.
The cottage is reverse level with a stunning open plan living area on the first floor with a large lounge area with a sofa and two armchairs, dining table for up to six, and a very well equipped kitchen with a full range of appliances – dishwasher, washing machine, condensing tumble dryer, electric hob and fan oven, microwave and fridge.
The cottage has a high vaulted ceiling with white painted beams and is very cosy in the winter but also fantastic in the summer with double doors opening out onto a private patio. This is a real sun trap and sheltered from any westerly breeze and can be used all year round for sitting outside and ‘al fresco’ dining on a large teak table table and chairs. From a door downstairs in the cottage is access into the shared courtyard.
The main bedroom has a comfortable double bed and the second large bedroom has a kingsize bed and also a single bed. We can provide a cot, high chair and stair gate for those with a baby or young children. Both bedrooms have good quality duvets, bed linen and towels, a wardrobe and drawers for clothes.
