About Jackie Wildig

A warm welcome will await you at Stone farm, our family home. Our family consists of: Me, Jackie, I am an infant school cover teacher. I love to cook and especially enjoy baking, probably inherited from my dad, a baker himself. Mark, my husband, works in the oil and gas industry. He is a whizz at fixing things. Sam, our son is very mechanical and understands most things technical. (I'm sure Mark and Sam speak a different language to me!) Daisy is a Golden Retriever and is very friendly but rather bouncy! She loves anything from chasing her tail to stealing plant pots! Minnie, our cat, arrived about four years ago and decided to stay. She's good at getting locked in!

Jackie Wildig purchased this Barn in 2002

Why Jackie Wildig chose Swimbridge

We moved to Stone Farm thirteen years ago. We all fell in love with it instantly. The position was just what we wanted, peaceful, private, no near neighbours and when we were told there were Bluebells in our own woods, in Spring, we were hooked! We have spent the last ten years renovating the house and it's many barns, in fact Mark has become a bit of a 'barn spotter', pointing out 'nice barns' wherever we go! We are very fussy and have endeavoured to make sure that all our own high standards have been met in Meadow and Orchard Barn. The builders often got frustrated with our 'nit picking', but when the barns were completed in April 2010, even they had to admit that it had all been worth it and that the finished result was 'a proper job'!

What makes this Barn unique

Stone Farm is in an excellent position for touring North Devon, close to beaches, Barnstaple and the Moors. It is set in over 80 acres of it's own land, meaning it is peaceful and quiet and there is lots for guests to explore including a nature trail through private woodland. The barns are extremely spacious, contemporary and equipped only with new, good quality, fixtures and fittings. We are very proud of what we have achieved and are delighted that it has been rated as A star or the 'best' by many of our guests.

The lower level, which is walled, has a barbecue. Garden furniture is provided. There is a delightful courtyard garden which separates the two barns and is a wonderful sun-trap.

There is a family nature trail through the woods with a prize for younger guests. There is an area of ancient woodland where deer, hares and other wildlife are often spotted. A stream creates a natural border for much of the farmland. Both Dartmoor and Exmoor can be seen from the highest points on a clear day.

                                                                    Beautiful barn in a beautiful location!

                                                                    Fern K.

                                                                    The barn itself and all of the contents are to a very high standard. This house has everything you could possibly need and more. The underfloor heating is a particular favourite of mine. A lot of nice comforts added like extra duvets if needed without having to ask, a telephone landline, a little snug play room with a TV and toys. The lounge telly had more channels than we have at home which was nice of an evening. And a really lovely nature trail on your doorstep. Lovely holiday home we enjoyed it very much.

                                                                    Fabulous accommodation, beautiful location

                                                                    Charlie P.

                                                                    Meadow barn was a smart, spacious, well-equipped cottage set in green countryside about 30 mins drive from the fantastic surfing beaches of north Devon. The barn had everything we needed for a home-from-home. We loved following the nature trail and sitting watching the wildlife from the comfort of the sofas. Highly recommended.

                                                                    Delightful barn in a picturesque and peaceful location

                                                                    Adrian T.

                                                                    We really enjoyed our stay at Meadow Barn. The barn is one of the best we've stayed in and is fitted out to a very high standard. The children really enjoyed playing table tennis in the adjacent barn and the Playstation in the playroom was also a hit! Jackie, the owner was very friendly and helpful and we must compliment her on the lemon drizzle cake which we were presented with on arrival. Would recommend this barn to anyone planning a family holiday in North Devon.

                                                                    Dream Holiday

                                                                    Joy R.

                                                                    WE have never stopped in such superb accommodation and relaxing surroundings. Jackie made us so welcome couldn't do enough for us. THank you for the delicious cake Jackie . We will certainly be back.

                                                                    Ultimate luxury and peace!!

                                                                    Nicky P.

                                                                    Well, where shall we start, Meadow Barn is probably one of the best properties that we have stayed in. Really relaxing peaceful setting, and excellantly located for visiting North Devon. The barn had absolutely everything we needed and more. Everywhere was spotless and clean. The snug was a hit with our 12 year old daughter, who loved to close the curtains and put on her favourite TV. The nature walk on the property is a must and make sure you polish up on your ping pong, incase you have a 15 year old who likes to challenge you to a game!!

                                                                    Jackie & Mark are very helpful and there for your every need. (Great tips on local climbing, and the baked suprise on arrival was delicious!)

                                                                    All in all, we all loved Meadow Barn, and really hope to return again, very soon.

                                                                    High Quality Accommodation

                                                                    Graham F.

                                                                    Meadow Barn is a beautiful barn conversion that has been very tastefully converted. The accommodation is of a very high standard. Everything has been thought of to make this a very enjoyable accommodation. The excellent facilities were invaluable when the weather was poor. It is also within easy reach of Barnstaple and great beaches and coastline. Jackie and Mark are great hosts, welcoming and looked after us well. It was great to have the little extras and the lovely home made cake. Highly recommend this as a place to stay.
