About Orchard Barn at Stone Farm

Orchard Barn offers the perfect combination of coast and country. The gorgeous conversion, which comfortably sleeps four people in two bedrooms, sits on more than eighty acres of private farmland, affording guests all the peace and tranquility they could desire (as well as a nature trail through the woods for leisurely walks). It can be rented on its own or, depending on availability, together with Meadow Barn which sleeps five guests in three rooms, and appeals to families and couples.

Guests are free to explore the farmland and drink in the views which stretch for several miles towards Dartmoor and Exmoor National Park, which is only five miles away. There are endless excellent footpaths, mountain bike trails, bridleways and opportunities for bird watching and fishing in the area. There is no better remedy to stress than a walk through the countryside regardless of whether you’re taking a gentle stroll in the sunshine or relishing the physical challenge of climbing a hill.

North Devon’s coast is an absolute delight no matter if you’re into sand castles or sunbathing, collecting shells or coasteering. Croyde Bay, Woolacombe, Saunton and Putsborough are all within easy reach, as are Westward Ho! and Appledore. Fish for your supper on the River Taw or pick up the catch of the day at Appledore Fish Dock and take it back to Orchard Barn for an unforgettable barbecue.

If you prefer to keep the Great Outdoors at arm’s length, you will still find plenty to keep you happily occupied for the duration of your holiday. Barnstaple is only six miles away, providing you with shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, an interesting local museum and cinema. It’s the largest town in the area and at the heart of the famous Tarka Trail. One of the best places to browse is at the Pannier Market (closed Sun-Mon) where people have shopped since 1573.

Hatherleigh is an hour’s scenic drive south of Stone Farm, and certainly worth the effort. Not only will you pass through spectacular Devon countryside, but when you get there, you will be greeted by the prettiest sight of traditional thatched and cob cottages dating back to the 1500s. Try to time your visit for Tuesday morning when the market is held. Other places to visit include Ilfracombe, Bideford and Lynmouth, connected by a cliff railway with Lynton.

A holiday at Stone Farm will keep everyone happy. Orchard Barn is a lovely cottage finished to a high standard to provide you with a very comfortable base for enjoying North Devon’s most popular attractions.
