Let your mind drift as you gently gaze at the picturesque valley. Silently spot wildlife from the Owl Observatory. Or hit the beach with surfboards and kayaks, cycle stunning coastal paths and take a four-legged friend too.
Rural tranquility or an active countryside escape? The choice is yours. Wildlife is in abundance - a rolling management of hedges, owl, bat, bird and nature boxes, covered shelters and small ponds for amphibians ensure that. Nestle in to the newly-built Owl Observatory to enjoy watching nature. Lose yourself in the incredible sunsets and stargaze at the gloriously dark skies. The owner’s private smallholding includes an organic vegetable plot and greenhouse, geese, ducks, pigs, goats, cats and a friendly dog. Listen for the hens clucking to know your morning eggs have arrived. Live the good life for a while and see the smiles that ensue.
Spacious and clean - no cluttered farm living here - Threshing is a contemporary, single-story barn conversion with high apex ceilings and crossbeams. A light and airy open plan living/dining/kitchen area draws your eye out over the valley and gives you every reason to relax.
When you’re ready to explore, there’s so much on the doorstep, starting with the magnificent coastline of North Devon and Cornwall. Let your coastal roaming guide you to RHS Garden Rosemoor, Dartington Crystal and the famously picturesque coastal village of Clovelly. Then of course there are the marvellous beaches and coastal paths. There is room for all of your outdoorsy kit so take it all! When the sun finally starts to set, wash off, dry and safely store your kayak, bikes, surfboards and paddleboards in the secure outhouse where your dog can have a shower too.
The Farmers Arms in Woolsery has recently been renovated and serves delicious home cooked food and a good choice of wine.
For ‘separate togetherness’, go with friends and spread yourselves out among this small group of barns. Each has its own courtyard seating, and shared picnic tables and benches in the meadow. There is a small BBQ area where visitors are able to use their own disposable BBQ via a hook 'n' cook disposable tray stand with wooden fencing structure, surrounded by kitchen herb planters and seating area etc. Please use BBQs responsibly.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Open the curtains in the morning to reveal delightful countryside views from a tranquil bedroom, complete with comfy bed and quality linen. A smart ensuite bathroom with powerful, hot, shower doesn’t disappoint.

We enjoyed a relaxing and restful time in the Threshing Barn. It was so beautifully warm every time we came 'home' and we slept well each night, only being woken by the first squawks of the chicken who provided us with eggs for breakfast. We appreciated the superb finish to the building - the handsome oak floor, the mathematically-straight nails in the door hinges whilst we also loved the colour-coordinated furniture and crockery and the efficient shower with its constant source of hot water....a beautiful place to rest and recuperate.C&V, Oxfordshire - 6th May 2015
