Overview

Kingsbridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom house, sleeping 8, with garden and games room

High Barn is an outstanding barn conversion using large beams from 18th century ships. A second barn is used as a large games room with table tennis.

Situated in a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in South Devon, it is just one mile from the spectacularly beautiful and unspoilt Erme estuary. Wonwell beach on the estuary offers vast expanses of sand and is perfect for swimming, paddling and fishing nets at low tide and windsurfing at high tide. Nearby there are more beaches and coves as well as fine cliff top walks. The National Trust path runs along the coast line and crosses the estuary, a Site of Special Scientific Interest with fascinating birdlife. High Barn sleeps up to 8 adults/children and is privately owned. During the summer it is let on a weekly basis, Friday to Friday. In winter, it is available either for a full week, or for a weekend.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

High Barn holiday

  • 5 of 5

High Barn is perfectly situated near several places of interest, beautiful beaches and picturesque villages.

The barn itself is well equipped for young families (we were two families with four children below the age of 3), spacious, clean and comfortable. On a sunny day the garden is a lovely place to rest, catching the sun throughout the day, and the table tennis table is a welcome addition on those not-so-good days.

The owners, Tim and Sally Begg, were extremely helpful. In addition to a folder of recommendations of local restaurants and attractions, they emailed unprompted to recommend a local walk to find the bluebells.

All in all a great place to stay and we hope to return again soon.

High Barn holiday

  • 5 of 5

High Barn is perfectly situated. It is near many places of interest, such as Agatha Christie's holiday home 'Greenway', beautiful beaches, and picturesque villages.

High Barn is well equipped for young families (we had four children with us below the age of 3), comfortable, and spacious. On a fine day the garden is a great place to relax, catching the sun through the day. If the weather is not so good the barn is well stocked for indoor activities.

The owners, Tim and Sally Begg, are extremely helpful, even to the point of emailing to suggest a local walk to find the bluebells.

All in all, a great place to stay. We are definitely hoping to visit again soon.

Pre Christmas Friends and Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We, The Kili Katering Krew + Hon Kompanions, (a group of old codgers who had first met in May 2014, to climb Ben Nevis for charity - Changarawe Project) had an absolutely wonderful stay in your gorgeous home. We enjoyed lots of laughter, convivial conversations, excellent cooking and good wine, all facilitated by the comfortable ambience of this lovely old barn. The rabbits, sausages and bacon we bought at Gribbels in Ivybridge were declared the best ever! Being early winter, the setting felt hidden and secluded, but in fact is a short walk from the cosy village pub with its open fires and friendly locals, and the estuary and coastal path for energising walks. We stayed for the first half of our week then handed over to our sons and friends (+ one baby) whose experience mirrored ours.

The listing description was accurate in every way, especially the very detailed instructions for finding High Barn, which we managed after dark. We had taken the train to Plymouth and hired a car to take the seven of us. High Barn is clean and well looked after; the owner was very helpful and provided a few back-up telephone contacts, local to the house. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend High Barn to others.

I want to return!

What a truly lovely place! High Barn is so homely and welcoming it was as though we were staying in the charming and spacious house of good friends (who happened to be away!) rather than in a holiday let.

We had absolutely everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay - right down to a surprise drawer of children's books, which kept the 4 and 3 year old very happy for a blessedly long time! The table tennis barn is an enormous asset - as are the extra fridge and freezer.

As for the area - it is beautiful. Gorgeous beaches, Dartmoor (the Miniature Pony Centre is a wonderful place for small children), National Trust properties, Salcombe to Kingsbridge cruises - all easily accessible. There is also a Sea World and a mega adventure swimming pool on the easy side of Plymouth - which we used on our only really rainy morning.

We stayed for two weeks and experienced High Barn in two ways: the first half was a child centred time; the second week was adults only. Both halves of the holiday were wonderful - the house and the area cater for all.

I hope to return one day. Meanwhile, thank you to Tim and Sally Begg - the nicest holiday landlords with whom you could hope to do business!

CHARMING COTTAGE, IN A BEAUTIFUL PART OF DEVON

  • 4 of 5

High Barn is a most attractive 'cottage', with a pretty garden, ideal for barbeques, and has a real 'home from home' feel. It is comfortable, spacious, clean, and very well equipped, and an ideal place for a relaxed family holiday or for a group of friends. An added bonus is the barn, used as a playroom, with table tennis and other games, as well as an extra fridge and freezer. We made good use of all these facilities. It is in a beautiful part of South Devon, close to sandy beaches, cliff paths and other country walks, has a local, charming pub, and is not far from Dartmoor nor Plymouth.

The only downside is the one rather weak shower, in the ensuite rather than the main bathroom. Otherwise, I would rate it as 5 stars, but as it is, would like to give 4 1/2 stars

We were three generations there, and had a most enjoyable holiday. I would certainly recommend it to friends.
