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

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.

Lovely house and setting

  • 4 of 5
The converted barn was a lovely place to stay, beautiful indoors and out. We especially enjoyed the comfortable beds, generous space, the log burner, the table tennis and games room, and all the family crockery and object d'art. A few downsides were that neither bathroom has a modern, self-heating shower, so it was baths all round. Occasionally the hot water ran out. Tricky if you are a group of seven, as we were. The second double was quite small for the two very tall adults who were using it. The kitchen is not very well lit, though it has lots and lots of good sized serving dishes and cooking equipment, which was a good compensation. We didn't light the Aga, but enjoyed it's presence nevertheless. The roof window which provides light for the smallest (children's room) would benefit from a more effective blackout blind. Roads are narrow, so do follow owners' instructions and avoid following Satnav, as shortest (?) routes can be a bit hairy even if you don't meet traffic coming the other way. The coastal path is utterly delightful and there were more and more wild flowers opening in all the verges every day in the warm spring sunshine.

Superb base for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5
My family found High Barn a most attractive house to stay in for a get together. It was spacious, clean and well maintained and well equipped. The games barn on the other side of the garden was much enjoyed, our table tennis skills improving by the day. The beach could be reached easily, a pleasant walk through woods carpeted with primroses and bluebells. The local Dolphin pub was thriving and served a good pint. I would recommend this house for a holiday.

High Barn, Devon

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at High Barn during the summer and would love to go back in the winter to enjoy the wood burner and comfortable sitting room. The house was lovely – loads of room and fully equipped. Outside was great with ample tables and chairs – we were able to easily seat 12 people for a meal in the garden one evening. We all enjoyed the table tennis in the barn and the extra fridge and freezer came in handy. Great location for exploring this part of Devon and couldn’t be nearer our favourite beach at Wonwell. One of the best houses we have stayed in, we couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
