    > Step back in time at Wood Farm and discover this truly delightful, quintessentially English homestead on a small private estate nestling in a completely rural and tranquil valley. This is a real rural hideaway, yet lies equidistant between the towns of Dartmouth, Totnes and Kingsbridge. The main farmhouse is the owners’ home and dates back to the 16th century; the adjoining barns have been converted into two luxury holiday homes (ref KAAY and KAAZ) overlooking a grassy meadow, an old apple orchard, a meandering natural stream and a pond full of wildlife. Beck Barn and Fern Barn are almost identical in the style of their layout. Renovated to a high standard, this original Devon barn, estimated as being 200 years old, retains its original scissor beam trusses and features. The accommodation is reverse living, with the spacious open-plan living, dining, kitchen areas upstairs and bedrooms downstairs. White plaster walls, rugs on oak floors and contemporary kitchens allow for a warm living area. Luxuriously designed to merge the traditional barn features and rustic timbers with modern living and a wow factor. The underfloor heating is supplied by the state-of-the art ‘ground source heat’, a super effective method of supplying heat from nature itself. The interiors are totally unique and offer a high degree of comfort and style. The beds have crisp, white cotton linen and supersize, fluffy towels are provided too. The old farmyard around which the barns are positioned is quite charming, with old sweet-smelling rose bushes creeping up the stone barn walls and pretty planted areas.
    For complete peace and quiet, this is the place to be - there is no light pollution here, and the sky at night is a spectacular sight to see. Surrounded by open countryside and small copses of ancient woodland, wildlife abounds. Down by the river kingfishers can sometimes be seen, whilst at night you can hear owls hooting in the trees and the stream tinkling through the valley. A public footpath runs through the 5-acre grounds, and a short walk over fields leads to the little village of Blackawton, with its 15th-century Norman church and village pub. Blackawton’s claim to fame is being the venue for the national worm charming contest, where people from all around the world gather to practise their art! Kingsbridge is about 7 miles away and has an excellent range of shops, restaurants and local facilities for canoe and paddle board hire. Totnes, at the head of the estuary of the River Dart in Devon, is 8 miles away and has a reputation for an eclectic mixture of shops, restaurants, market and residents focus on artistic talent and ecological living. The ever popular and affluent towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe are 7 and 12 miles away respectively, both with beautiful harbours and estuaries. They are a mecca for yachting and water sports with some excellent shops, markets, restaurants and inns as well as lovely sandy beaches and cliff top walks. Dartmoor National Park, the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England with its wild ponies and outdoor adventures, is 12 miles away. There are some excellent beaches in the local area including Slapton Sands, dog-friendly all year round, and Blackpool Sands, with its café, about 6 miles away. Shop, gastropub and restaurant ½ mile.

    loved the place. Our family of 4 stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Fiona and David were great hosts, the pool was great for the kids and the surroundings were beautiful. Would definitely go back.

    We stayed here for 2 weeks (as a family 2 adults and 3 young children 6, 4 and nearly 2 years old) over the summer holidays and had a great time. The cottage is clean, well equipped and well placed to explore activities in Devon which are plentiful and kept us and the kids well entertained. David and Fiona and family (the cottage owners) were welcoming and helpful throughout. The icing on the cake and one of the main reasons we booked this location was the swimming pool which is simply stunning and did not disappoint. We would stay again and recommend to others.

    Very friendly hosts. Well designed accommodation. Extremely peaceful and although we didn’t take our dog this time we wouldn’t hesitate next time. Well done Dave and Fiona for designing such beautiful accommodation and the swimming pool is beautiful.

    A great place to stay. The cottage was beautifully presented in a picturesque setting and spotlessly clean with everything you could want for day to day living. The owners really had thought of everything. The pool was stunning and we had great use of it, this together with the games room made it a great stay for the kids too. Would love to come back again.

    My family had a lovely time at Fern Barn. The decoration was pristine. Very modern yet cozy environment. I would highly recommend this place. The only offset was that if you want to sleep in, beware they have a cockarel that wakes you up at 7am. Besides that everything was wonderful. The kitchen had all the appliances and kitchenware one would need. The fireplace was so comforting and made the livingroom so relaxing. We enjoyed our stay.

    We had a wonderful, relaxing week at Fern Barn. It is in a stunning, rural location. Perfect for switching off, although only a short drive to Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. The barn, swimming pool and setting were perfect for a lovely family break. We will definitely stay again.
