Offering classic style and plenty of space, Berry Farmhouse is the perfect venue for getting together with family or friends and sleeps sixteen guests in seven bedrooms. Nestling amidst the rolling countryside of the Torridge Valley in North Devon, the farmhouse has fabulous rural views and offers an oasis of tranquility where you can escape away to recharge, explore or celebrate a special occasion.
Centrally located within Devon, the farmhouse sits on a working farm on the outskirts of the little village of Petrockstowe and is within easy reach of Dartmoor, Exmoor, the north coast of Devon and also Cornwall's north coast. It is also possible to drive to the south coast for a day trip out and change of scenery.
Beautifully presented throughout, the farmhouse is family and dog friendly and offers the perfect blend of modern conveniences, mixed with character features including an inglenook in the sitting room for nights in front of the fire, large kitchen with Aga, and fabulous dining room with space for everyone to sit around one table - perfect for a celebratory meal or catching up at the end of the day. There is also plenty of space to relax outside when the sun shines with large garden including patios to relax and plenty of lawn area for kids to let off steam.
Spend your days relaxing and enjoying a taste of country life, or get out and about exploring. The Tarka Trail is easily accessible and offers twenty two miles of traffic free cycling so don't forget to bring your bike (or hire one). There are nature reserves for wildlife enthusiasts (including Ash Moor and Heath Quarry); lovely walks through the Devon countryside, across the moors and along the coastal path; and stunning beaches for surfing, sun bathing and building sand castles including Bude, Westward Ho! and Clovelly, all within easy driving distance.
The area also has an abundance of great days out. Visit RHS Rosemoor in the welcoming town of Great Torrington, Paignton Zoo, Buckland Abbey, Dartington Crystal at Torrington and The Big Sheep at Bideford (sure to be a holiday highlight with the little ones).
