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 North Devon

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.

Great well maintained property, the owner was quick to respond to messages and was very helpful. Lovely quiet rural location with lots of out door space. Barn contained everything you require (plus more)! Handy location for visiting all areas of North Devon.

Lovely place to stay in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed 4 times at Orchard Barn and really enjoyed each time.

Jackie, Mark and Sam have looked after very well each time and nothing is too much trouble.

Orchard Barn is very well set up, always clean on our arrival and very well maintained with all mod cons.

We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return for our fifth visit sometime in the future.

Fantastic Barn Conversion

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week at Orchard Barn with our toddler.

We thought it was a lovely, modern barn conversion with a very spacious but cosy feel to it. It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained.

Jackie is a wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble.

We would highly recommend Orchard Barn or Meadow Barn next door if you need something a little bigger.

English Countryside at Its Best

  • 5 of 5

A very special place, well-appointed with tasteful and functional decor. So clean, we could have been the first to stay in this delightful, converted barn. The grounds, on a working farm, offer lovely nature walks and vistas. We would not hesitate to recommend to friends. Our only regret was that we could not enjoy a longer stay in this peaceful setting.

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.
